The first on-screen kiss between two members of the same sex was in Cecil B. DeMille’s 1922 Manslaughter.

"I’m not totally mad at you. I’m just sad. You’re all locked up in that little world of yours, and when I try knocking on the door, you just sort of look up for a second and go right back inside."

Haruki Murakami  (via dieworten)

"Although some species may be now increasing, more or less rapidly, in numbers, all cannot do so, for the world would not hold them."

Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species, Ch. III (via wisdombypages)

"The person vulnerable to stress and procrastination is saying: “This project is me. My boss or client must love it, or I’ll feel rejected as a person. if I can’t make ten sales today I’m a failure. Whether I”m a winner or a loser in life will be determined by how well I do on this project.” With your work bearing a weight as enormous as the determination of your worth and your future happiness, stress is inevitable. You need some form of escape to relieve the anxiety and to disengage your self-esteem from how well you do at this game of tennis, this exam, or this job. In such a predicament, procrastination can serve as a delaying action and as a way of getting you past your perfectionism. If you delay starting your work, you cannot do your best and so any criticism or failure will not be a judgment of the real you or your best effort. If you delay on making a decision, the decision will be made for you and you will not have to take responsibility if something goes wrong."

Neil Fiore, Ph.D, “Overcoming Procrastination” (via wisdombypages)

"… nor could she help fearing, on more serious reflection, that, like many other great moralists and preachers, she had been eloquent on a point in which her own conduct would ill bear examination."
