An old bosnian man, after he lost his house in the flood
"Nije mi sine žao zemljišta, niti kuće… Žao mi sine, što nemam više vremena da gradim nešta novo, a gdje proživjeti ovo što mi je ostalo?"
"My son, I’m not sorry for the land, or house.. I’m sorry, son, that I don’t have time to build something new, and where to spend this few years that I have left?"

We do not ask for what useful purpose the birds do sing, for song is their pleasure since they were created for singing. Similarly, we ought not to ask why the human mind troubles to fathom the secrets of the heavens. The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment.

She’s mad at me bc she doesn’t like her dinner. She said it was disgusting. I told her if she said that one more time I was gonna take the food away & she would have nothing. So she said it again & she’s not allowed to have dessert. I told her she is to never say that about food, that there are children her age who cry at night from hunger. I told her I would show her a pic of those children if she didn’t believe me. I’ve literally become my mother.



Take boots, for example. [Vimes] earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while a poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This is how it is really expensive to be poor.

When Jim Henson, creator of the Muppets died in 1990, Disney released this picture of Mickey consoling Kermit the Frog.

Reblogging for the hundredth time

but what if he’s consoling Kermit because he remembers how he felt when Walt died and he doesn’t want anyone to go through that alone



This photo means a lot to me today.
