You’re missing the point. I’m not saying “religion” is a flat out lie, he’s not saying that either. We’re using religion as an illustrative point because religions are *known* for being full of things perpetuated as the truth while being lies. It’s not like
There are so many to choose from! Everything from Alice in Wonderland to Birds of a Feather. I originally saw these [here](http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/susan-hoerth-raidersofthelostart-altered-books-sculptures). Here is the artist’s [etsy page](http://www.etsy.com/shop/Raidersofthelostart), with even more work.
“Love or Nothing: The Life and Times of Ellen Terry” by Tom Prideaux Though I don’t get the significance. Maybe it actually tastes good.
The amazing library distracted me from the awfulness of the movie.
Picture this: Right after WWI, a minister’s daughter from Baltimore settles in Paris after serving with the Red Cross. She dreams of opening her own bookshop, and starts by conducting research in the Bibliothèque Nationale. She reads about, and decides to meet, Adrienne Monnier,
It’s the illustration of the guy who had these dreams (our little astronaut!) but who never pursued them and thus became a cold soul who had known neither victory nor defeat. Instead, he’s watching the guy who actually pursued his dream (climb Everest) who
That’s why I shared it. We can’t wallow in the mire of our own misery, of the sadness of a tragedy. There is a time for that, but after the initial problems are dealt with. We need to remember that there are people who
He was a psychoanalyst. One of the first steps in gaining knowledge of oneself.. the beginning steps of the individuation process is recognizing one’s shadow. One’s shadow appears in projections. That being, someone pisses you off for some reason unknown to you. That’s, his
therefore in order to tell a perfect lie, first you have to convince yourself. Nobody ever called me a liar. But at the same time, i have really inconsistent memories of a large portion of my life. in short, never get yourself into a
You touch on aomething that I think is worth talking about. It isn’t even acceptable to make racist jokes anymore. Everyone (blacks, whites, oriental, etc.) still do it but only in certain company. Growing up in former Yugoslavia where we had different ethnicities people

I can’t even imagine how that position is physically possible for an adult…or maybe just an adult man…or maybe just an overweight adult man….or maybe just an overweight adult man with hip problems…yeah, it’s just me.
Hey, r/quotesporn I am a longtime subscriber and devoted reader and quot-er. I love seeing the new posts and especially when I don’t have to click the link for the entire quote (because its written in the description) unless it strikes a chord. I
It’s more about how some people just sit around and talk about other people while others do things together. This quote says nothing about pretending life is a fairytale. You can have negative stuff in your day, but some people prefer doing fun things
So this is watercolor galaxy background with Bastard Secretary calligraphy on top. The whole thing is made on 200g paper, with calligraphy inks, gold and silver gouache and a few plastic gemstones. I found this comment somewhere on reddit, and it just struck me.
[Iceberg Theory](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iceberg_Theory) is something that Hemingway did in pretty much everything he wrote. He loved omitting stuff, even going so far as to say, “If you leave out important things or events that you know about, the story is strengthened.” On another note, Hemingway

Let me throw out an observation that may MAKE or BREAK this quote for you… Believers in climate change are completely so sure that they refer to their opposition as “climate change deniers”… That’s not to say one is right and the other is
But in the 50s and 69s, (typo but keeping it) it was the same. They were “hip” then too. There is no “un fashion”, everyone has to wear clothes. All clothing is a choice. You may be a conforming type of person, so your
No, he wasn’t happy. He was inspiring, in a way, by serving as an extreme example of a nonconformist who didn’t give a fuck–and all the freedom that implies. But Bukowksi is honestly a great example of why social bonds and moderation are, while

Full album here: http://imgur.com/a/BSAWl Posted a while ago with my mountaineering collection, but here’s my full collection. And like the couple of others who posted here this week, I think I’m running out of space and need a new bookshelf (or a bigger place)
