“'If you want my advice, Peter,' he said at last, 'you've made a mistake already. By asking me. By asking anyone. Never ask people. Not about your work. Don't you know what you want? How can you stand it, not to know?'”
The Fountainhead (via fate-my-friend)
“If you’re lonely when you’re alone, you’re in bad company.”

One Last Dad Joke with Sam

panatmansam:

Four monks are meditating in a monastery when, all of a sudden, the prayer flag on the roof starts flapping.

The youngest monk comes out of his meditation and says, “Flag is flapping.”

The second, more experienced monk says, “Wind is flapping.”   

The third monk, who has been there for more than twenty years, says, “Mind is flapping.”   

The fourth monk, who is the eldest and most experienced, says, “Mouths are flapping!”

unexplained-events:

This photo was taken over 20 years ago by Todd Robertson during a KKK rally in northeast Georgia. One of the boys approached a black state trooper, who was holding his riot shield on the ground. Seeing his reflection, the boy reached for the shield, and Robertson snapped the photo.

I think the officer’s expression says it all. This child standing before him is being taught how to hate even though he doesn’t understand it. He probably doesn’t understand the difference between this and Halloween.

A lot of you are asking if I kow what became of the boy. I do not, but if anyone does, feel free to message me.
