"There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man."
- Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man’s Fear (via kushandwizdom)
A girl, rescued me. She was singing. She had the most beautiful voice.

"So raise a glass to teenage girls for their linguistic innovation. It expands our expressive vocabulary, giving us new words and modes of expression. Speakers may nostalgically look to a previous golden era of English, but the truth is that Shakespeare’s English is an abomination of Chaucer’s English, which is an abomination of Beowolf’s. Language is inherently unstable. It’s in a constant state of flux, made and remade—stretched, altered, broken down and rearranged—by its speakers every day. Rather than a sign of corruption and disorder, this is language in its full vitality—a living, evolving organism."
