Hayao Miyazaki talking about his passion for animation while seeing the world through his fascinating career. From the documentary: The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (2013)

"Here’s to the security guards who maybe had a degree in another land. Here’s to the manicurist who had to leave her family to come here, painting the nails, scrubbing the feet of strangers. Here’s to the janitors who don’t even fucking understand English yet work hard despite it all. Here’s to the fast food workers who work hard to see their family smile. Here’s to the laundry man at the Marriott who told me with the sparkle in his eyes how he was an engineer in Peru. Here’s to the bus driver, the Turkish Sufi who almost danced when I quoted Rumi. Here’s to the harvesters who live in fear of being deported for coming here to open the road for their future generation. Here’s to the taxi drivers from Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt and India who gossip amongst themselves. Here is to them waking up at 4am, calling home to hear the voices of their loved ones. Here is to their children, to the children who despite it all become artists, writers, teachers, doctors, lawyers, activists and rebels. Here’s to Western Union and Money Gram. For never forgetting home. Here’s to their children who carry the heartbeats of their motherland and even in sleep, speak with pride about their fathers. Keep on."

"You are so good. So good, you’re always feeling so much. And sometimes it feels like you’re gonna bust wide open from all the feeling, don’t it? People like you are the best in the world, but you sure do suffer for it."
Silas House, This is My Heart for You (via fromonesurvivortoanother)

The first time in my life when I felt ‘different’ was when I moved to California when I was 12. It was a large adjustment. I didn’t feel like I fit in for the first time in my life. I didn’t feel like I had friends outside of my family. I didn’t feel like I was home.

Funnily enough that’s what started me making videos and doing what I do because it made me happy - and since I didn’t have a lot to make me happy, it’s what I kept going back to.

And again funnily enough, I was scared to tell my friends. I was terrified that they would find out until they kind of found out on their own. And now that I’m older I look back and I hate that I felt like that. I hate that I was groomed to be so fearful of what I was doing. I think you should embrace your individuality, what makes you different. I wish it wouldn’t have taken me so long to figure that out, but I guess that’s growing up.”

Dylan O’Brien at Giffoni Film Festival (paraphrased from the live stream)  (via rustypolished)



"Here rise to life again, dead poetry! Let it, O holy Muses, for I am yours, And here Calliope, strike a higher key, Accompanying my song with that sweet air which made the wretched Magpies feel a blow that turned all hope of pardon to despair." - Dante
(inspired/requested by thephoenixcity)
"Don’t talk to yourself in such a way that if you did so to a friend, it would end your friendship.

If you had a friend dealing with the same things, you wouldn’t berate that person, say, ‘You’re not working hard enough,’ ‘You suck,’ or ‘You’re not as good as [whomever].’ You’d offer your friend encouragement, you’d try to point out all the things your friend did right, and how much progress your friend had made.

You should do no less for yourself.

Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening."

Q: Tyler, could you do that too, just quickly? The line?
Tyler Hoechlin: The line? As the Grumpy Cat? Oh boy.

I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.

This is groundbreaking

this is my third time rebloging this today. this is so important.

The cast reveals their favourite character line of the person to their left. +

"Tom Cruise was considered for a role, but in the end, Idris Elba was cast."

Also from -

“Guillermo explains that he didn’t want one country saving the Earth.  He wanted someone from every race, color and creed working together to save the planet. ‘And I felt that it was very important for the charismatic leader to be played by Idris Elba rather than the usual waspy, 40-ish, sergeant type.’”

"I went to coach a little league baseball team when I was a junior in high school. I showed up to the first practice and I wanted to be all hard nosed and wanted to make an impression, “Drop and give me ten, and do a pole to pole!”  So I go in with this stern face and someone says, “Hey, you’re that kid on YouTube!”  They all knew who I was and it was the weirdest thing.”

SHERLOCK: These are magnificent creatures. Clyde will likely outlive both of us. You didn’t really think I would eat him, did you?

JOAN: I don’t know. I guess it’s hard to know what you’re going to do.
