Quote
"Until you’re about the age of twenty, you read everything, and you like it simply because you are reading it. Then between twenty and thirty you pick what you want, and you read the best, you read all the great works. After that you sit and wait for them to be written. But you know, the least known, the least famous writers, they are the better ones."

Rest in peace, Gabriel García Márquez. (via theatlantic)

Reza Aslan, author of Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, tells Terry Gross about what the crucifixion tells us about Jesus:

There’s only one reason to be crucified under the Roman Empire and that is for treason or sedition. Crucifixion, we have to understand, was not actually a form of capital punishment for Rome. In fact, it was often the case that the criminal would be killed first and then crucified. Crucifixion was, in reality, a deterrent; it was an obvious symbol to subject peoples of what happens when you defy the will of Rome. Which is why crucifixions always had to happen in public places: at crossroads, on hills, at the entrance of cities. So for that reason, crucifixion was a punishment reserved … solely for the most extreme crimes, crimes against the state.
 … And so, that’s why if we really want to know who Jesus was and what he meant, we should start not at the beginning of the story — with him in a manger, but at the end of the story — with him on a cross. Because if Jesus was in fact crucified by Rome, he was crucified for sedition. He was crucified because he challenged the Roman occupation.

an english major, an art major, and a film major walk into a bar

they all get ridiculed for pursuing what they love

plot twist: together they create the most dramatically intricate and visually compelling pieces of cinema the world has ever seen and make a cultural milestone and also a billion dollars

Remember, God will never waste anything you go through in life. If you’ll keep the right attitude, He’ll turn that situation around for your good. It doesn’t matter how you got there, whether it was by your own poor choices or maybe someone else treated you unfairly, God wants to use that situation to do a work in you. He’ll take that evil and turn it around for your good. You may be uncomfortable at times, but you’ve got to know that you are growing, and God is building your character.

It’s amazing how people through time managed to put weight on words. Take for instance, telling a girl “You’re beautiful” could mean a lot more to her instead of “You’re pretty!” or “You’re cute!”. And how many eyebrows you’ll be raising and heads turning when you say “that’s bullshit” vs “THAT’S OX’S* POOP” and “your mother’s a pleasure worker” vs “putang ina mo”.

* did i get the apostrophe right HAHA
