“My sister Christi had a baby when I was 17, and I had just heard about crib death. The horrible thing was that it wasn’t understood. For some unknown reason the baby would stop breathing. So I would sneak into where the baby was sleeping and put my hand in her crib, hold her little finger, and I’d sleep on the floor like that. It was stupid, I’m sure. But I thought the warmth of my hand might help, that maybe if she felt my pulse it would remind her to breathe.”—Johnny Depp (via adorejohnnydepp)
Do You Seem to Get Caught Up in the Same Old Reactions?
Have you ever blown up at your spouse only to realize-after the smoke cleared-that you might have over-reacted just a tad? Maybe you learn that you haven’t been invited to your uncle’s friend’s sister’s birthday party and you behave as if it’s the slight of the century.
Sometimes even the most minor snafu can send us storming out of the room, slamming down a phone, or just shutting down entirely. It’s like we just can’t help it-the reaction is as automatic as a mallet to the knee.
Science Reveals It May Not Be Your Fault
New research indicates that these habitual, knee-jerk responses go way back to our childhood.
If you're able to catch my boyfriend's attention, you can have him.
I don’t want someone who can be stolen away from me. I want a mature guy who keeps his attention on me and only me. I know he’s gonna come across many beautiful girls, but if he truly cared about me, other girls shouldn’t even be a problem. A guy who can be easily taken away from me, I don’t want. And if you just so happen to be one of those girls who catches his attention aside from me, you can keep him. I don’t want him.
“I find it so much easier to be creatively free at night. Daytime is for sleeping. Nighttime is the best time for making art. The later at night it gets the further into another world you go.”—Mark Ryden (via stellablu)
“In Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound”. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards and forwards, it takes us to a place where we ache to go again.”—Don Draper (via skintones)
