“When I’m working on a problem, I never think about beauty. I think only how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.”—R. Buckminster Fuller (via livejamie)
I just watched The God Complex, and I nearly cried. I started watching the show at the beginning of season 5 so I’ve been with Amy just as long as I’ve been with the Doctor. During the break between seasons, I watched every single episode of the new reincarnation of the show. The eleventh Doctor will always be my 1st Doctor, and Amy will always be my 1st companion. But now Amy and Rory are gone, but safe and the Doctor has River in his distant sights. I am incredibly excited that River’s story arch is back on track and that the motif of a new companion is coming up!! On the other hand, I can’t believe Amy and Rory are gone!! ……but in the last few episode, especially in Amy, I could kind of see it coming. I’m going to go cry over them now……. and wait for the next show.
“You know when, sometimes you meet someone so beautiful, and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later, they’re as dull as a brick? Then there’s other people, and you meet them and you think, ‘Not bad; they’re okay.’ And then you get to know them, and their face sort of becomes them, like their personality is written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful. Rory’s the most beautiful man I’ve ever met.”—Amelia Pond (The Girl Who Waited)
“Read books you’d like to write. If you want to write literature, read literature. Write books you’d like to read. Follow your own weirdness.”—Annie Dillard, “Notes For Young Writers” (via austinkleon)
“I was thinking how amazing it was that the world contained so many lives. Out in these streets people were embroiled in a thousand different matters, money problems, love problems, school problems. People were falling in love, getting married, going to drug rehab, learning how to ice skate, getting bifocals, studying for exams, trying on clothes, getting their hair cut and getting born. And in some houses people were getting old and sick and were dying, leaving others to grieve. It was happening all the time, unnoticed, and it was the thing that really mattered.”—Jeffrey Eugenides (via troubled)
