“The best thing for being sad is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”—T.H. White (via creatingaquietmind)

“Parks And Recreation is criminally underrated and one of the best ensembles on TV. They figured out how to make comedy out of people who like things, as opposed to the usual sitcom where it’s just people being awful to each other. Turns out passion can heighten things in the same way that conflict does. And that delights me.”—Tim Carvell, head writer for The Daily Show (Rolling Stone Sept. 2013) (via katiepoole912)
This is Mary Anning the worlds greatest fossil hunter and the founding mother of scientific geology. She completely changed our understanding of the origins of species and the age of the earth. Her discoveries are the first to scientifically established the existence of prehistoric species and before her discoveries there was no scientific establishment for dinosaurs and people didn’t even know that animals could become extinct.
I told you yesterday about this thing that happens, where men decide what’s cool, what’s smart, what’s better, and at the top of the list is them and the things they like, and at the bottom is young women, and the things young women want to talk about. And at the bottom is Stevie Nicks.
