❝ The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater. ❞

❝ if you fail to plan, you plan to fail ❞

our middle school principal barked this Benjamin Franklin quote at us once when i was in grade 5

it sounded like the lamest thing in the world at the time (i was what, like 11 years old?) and we all laughed it off, rolling our eyes and giggling at each other like the foolish youths we were

but right now, in the middle of a pile of readings and work to be done, it is actually one of the wisest pieces of advice i have ever received

❝ I know me. I’m wearing makeup right now, and I’m wearing clothes I’d never normally wear out of respect for the situation. But it’s not me. Aimee (her character) is more like me than the person you see on the red carpet. But there’s something else. This town runs on fear. People don’t talk about that. People are so afraid that if they look a certain way, or talk a certain way, they’re never going to work again. That’s so sad. This is about creating art, and if you’re afraid to do something like not wear makeup, what does that say about our culture? ❞
— Shailene Woodley in response to ‘Most actresses your age want to look their best in every role because this town is obsessed with beauty. How did you know it was the right call to go without makeup in this movie?

❝ I think it’s really difficult to make a good romantic comedy. I’d love to play them; they just don’t tend to come my way at the moment. I’m taking it as a compliment one way or another, but it’s very much an ambition of mine to wear jeans. ❞

Tom Hiddleston

i wanted to take ‘its very much an ambition of mine to wear jeans’ out of context but i like the first sentence too

❝ Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ❞

❝ A lot of female journalists are writing about feminism again. Fucking great! Where have you been? You have to, you have a responsibility, portraying women in a positive light with all their flaws. And not going ‘Oh my god you’re 30, are you going to have an awful time?’ No, no! Come on, woman! ❞

❝ Film is a disease. When it infects your bloodstream, it takes over as the number one hormone; it bosses the enzymes; directs the pineal gland; plays Iago to your psyche. As with heroin, the antidote to film is more film. ❞

❝ Shyness is only the effect of a sense of inferiority in some way or other. If I could persuade myself that my manners were perfectly easy and graceful, I should not be shy. ❞

But I loved the library simply because it was a library. I love libraries. I like reading, but I love libraries. Being surrounded by books makes me feel safe, the way some people need trees or mountains around them to feel secure. Not me – nature’s not what I cling to. I cling to books.

❝ I guess what I’m saying is that this all feels very familiar. But it’s not mine to be familiar about. I just know that another kid has felt this. This one time when it’s peaceful outside, and you’re seeing things move, and you don’t want to, and everyone is asleep. And all the books you’ve read have been read by other people. And all the songs you’ve loved have been heard by other people. And that girl that’s pretty to you is pretty to other people. And you know that if you looked at these facts when you were happy, you would feel great because you are describing “unity”. ❞
— Stephen Chbosky
