“I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald (via quotewhore)
“He thought about himself, and the whole Earth,
Of Man the wonderful, and of the Stars,
And how the deuce they ever could have birth;
And then he thought of Earthquakes, and of Wars,
How many miles the Moon might have in girth,
Of Air-ballons, and of the many bars
To perfect Knowledge of the boundless Skies;
And then he thought of Donna Julia’s Eyes.”—Lord Byron, Don Juan (via @johannal)
“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”—Steve Jobs (via quote-book)
Would you mind taking a couple seconds out of your day to vote for me in the Mad Men casting call? There are only nine days left and I need to be in the top ten (women) - I’m so close! I know this is random but I’m just trying to reach out where I can and figured it couldn’t hurt to ask around :) If you’ve voted before, I’m sorry for asking again, but you can vote daily and I need all the help I can get. Thank you SO much!

This would be the only reason I would ever put in a former address of mine online. They take a childhood address, incorporate the music video on your street, using multiple browser windows. It’s worth closing every other program, I swear.
And the song’s not bad either, but this music video (if it can even be called that) is what will be remembered.
“Of course there’s a such thing as love. Everything is made of love. But, I think what there’s no such thing as is the love that other people tell you about, the love that you hear about from movies, or from songs, or from your friends or from your parents. You know, you can take what you want and leave the rest from those notions of love but there’s no love except for the one that you feel for yourself and it’s different for everyone.”—Joseph Gordon-Levitt (via fevenaraya )
