"allons-y!"

$

a person is worth more than dollars.

you cannot put a price on their smile as they accept their first kiss,
as their baby niece’s sigh brings tears to their eyes

no amount of pounds or rupees could even measure their wonder
as they gaze up at a starry sky…
and their wanderlust, their mountain-trekking-hunger
when thunder creaks their bones and makes their hair stand on end

we don’t have price tags dangling on our necks like twisted jewellery for a reason:

bringing chicken soup to all the homeless,
sending a teddy bear across a country to console a child:

now, who can put a number on humanity?
our hearts are too big and too full.

Hitler flirting with Eva Braun.

I don’t know how this makes me feel

It makes me feel very uncomfortable

You know what’s so uncomfortable about this? It shows that perhaps one of the most evil men in history, was a human being. That, on occasion, he could be nice, even flirty. That’s not all. You want to see evil people as evil, screaming horrible stuff over a desk with 20 microphones with 20, 000 people saluting them. The evil is clear and recognizable then. This shows a completely different image, it scares you because that means that evil isn’t a stereotype, that evil is not recognizable, that evil could be anyone. It scares you because this shows that could be lurking inside anyone and you’ll never ever know. Maybe in you? 

i reblogged this literally like 2 minutes ago, but i want this version because of that comment ^

That comment is one of my favorite post commentaries, because it’s completely right. People aren’t inherently evil. Like good, it’s a role they grow and live into. We have just as much potential to destroy as this man exhibited. And it’s a very eye opening experience to realize that.

does anyone even remember that one time hitler attended that luncheon between world leaders, some guests of which even included china’s socialist leader as well as Stalin. And then when they were ordering, everyone was gladly ordering impressive dishes one after the other, but Hitler placed an order for barley tea and a pheasant (considered a peasant’s meal by standard). When he was questioned as to why he would order something like this in something as grand as a world leader’s congress, he replied,

“I don’t smoke when my people cannot smoke, and I cannot eat when my people are going hungry.”

He wasn’t evil for its own sake, let’s try to remember that despite the countless murders, but for a moment, he did actually believe he was doing something for the good of his countrymen.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE

No, he’s right. Hitler, though extremely wrong in his views, did everything for what he thought would better the lives of his people. It was wrong. It was disgustingly, horribly wrong. But he did not do it because it was evil and he was evil. He did it because he believed it would help Germany and those who needed a better life. Those who don’t understand or even try to understand the human brain will always label men like him as ‘evil’ because it is easier to accept. But he wasn’t ‘evil.’ He felt love and loyalty and responsibilities. He simply took these aspects and morphed them into a twisted, violent thing. 

Tumblr is probably the only place we could have this conversation and not be lynched.

“Every villain is a hero in his own mind.”


― Tom Hiddleston

This post speaks to an ultimate truth. Everyone believes that they’re right in what they do, and that they’re doing good. If someone knew that what they were doing was wrong, they wouldn’t do it.

No one on this post is defending him, what he did was beyond unspeakable, but we realize that he thought he was doing the right thing, however perverted and horrible it was.

"There is a fundamental concern that the content of such magazines normalizes the treatment of women as sexual objects. We are not killjoys or prudes who think that there should be no sexual information and media for young people. But are teenage boys and young men best prepared for fulfilling love and sex when they normalize views about women that are disturbingly close to those mirrored in the language of sexual offenders?" - Dr. Peter Hegarty

vivre

The world is so big—I want to be a big person among humans. I want to be remembered by the people living on a billion-year-old star. I want to be acknowledged by the wise, rocky Earth. I want to leave a mark on an unchangeable landscape. I want to live on.

I envy your popularity...

thisismouseface:

I’m sorry you feel that way, sweetie. I understand envy very well, so I can’t tell you to just brush it off.

But what pains me a lot about this is that this fandom seems incredibly fame-focused. I’m going to ramble here for a minute because this has been bothering me quite a bit.  

 Even though this is still arguably the most positive and uplifting fandom I’ve ever been involved in, I can’t tell you how many friends have confided their jealousy of famous users in me, or how many posts I’ve seen in the tags where people are expressing their yearning for popularity.

It’s incredibly dangerous to have the mindset that the notes you get on a fic / drawing equate to how valuable you are as a person. Likewise with follower count.  These are false senses of self worth that, at the end of the day, will not fulfill you as a person.  

Sure, it feels nice to receive lots of nice attention, I won’t condemn anyone for wanting that.  We all want to be recognized for the things we are proud of.

I’ve had pieces I spent hours on get considerably few notes, and I’ve seen what looks like effortless doodles gain thousands upon thousands of notes.  Does it feel like a smack in the face? Yes. Does it make me a shitty artist who’s not worth anything? Absolutely not. Does it make them a shitty artist? Not at all! It doesn’t mean anything aside from it being an indicator of how popular the subject matter was. 

Gauging your personal sense of self-worth with how popular you or your works are on a social media site is simply unadvisable. I know it hurts to feel unnoticed.  I know it sucks seeing other people swarmed with love and affection when you feel like you’re the one who needs just a simple pat on the back. But you have to do you best to overcome your jealousy and not let it get the better of you.  Or else it will literally consume you.  Be true to your art or your writing or what have you.  Make sure you do it because you love it, not because you want a thousand notes.

I didn’t mean to attack you personally, anon. Please know that.  I saw the opportunity to address a larger issue and I wanted to take it.  

21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves:

Jonathan, 55: There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
Miranda, 24: Drop pre-med.
Isaac, 48: Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
Anya, 42: Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
Parker, 55: 60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
Megan, 34: He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
Peter, 58: Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
Eleanor, 67: Talk less. Listen more.
Donald, 27: There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.
Camille, 56: Always remember: when falling off a horse, pull your tongue in.
Jackson, 57: No one knows anything for sure. They’re all just doing the best they can with what they have, just like you.
Vicki, 47: You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
Donald, 38: You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.
Katelyn, 30: Make the most out of college. You will never again be at a place where your only goal is to learn. Learn a lot, learn often, and learn with reckless abandon.
Joshua, 55: Women love to laugh.
Annabelle, 38: Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
Colin, 50: You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
Eleanor, 26: Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
Aaron, 52: Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
Scarlett, 54: Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
Zack, 9: I hope you’re awesome. And be nice to girls.
