a short doctor who episode by steven moffat
An accurate representation of my social skills
Via Paste magazine, David Tennant reads Shakespeare’s Sonnet 126:
O thou, my lovely boy, who in thy power
Dost hold Time’s fickle glass, his sickle, hour;
Who hast by waning grown, and therein showest
Thy lovers withering, as thy sweet self growest.
If Nature, sovereign mistress over wrack,
As thou goest onwards still will pluck thee back,
She keeps thee to this purpose, that her skill
May time disgrace and wretched minutes kill.
Yet fear her, O thou minion of her pleasure!
She may detain, but not still keep, her treasure:
Her audit (though delayed) answered must be,
And her quietus is to render thee.
C…c…can’t talk, drooling.
omg. the last line.
Study yourself the way a hunter studied prey. Exploit your own weaknesses to create desired changes within yourself.”
— Grant Morrison (via beherenowandzen)
Okay. If you say so, Tumblr…
Charlotte Brontë birthday
On a day like today, but in 1816, Charlotte Brontë was born. She is the author of a beautiful novel called Jane Eyre and sister of Emily Brontë, who wrote Wunthering Heights. This is one of my favourites quotes of her:
"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will."
Happy birthday, Charlotte.
