Oh Jamie. Sigh. I was just starting to like you. You bastard. Tyrion, you are still my baby. If they kill you this season I am gonna be pissed. Dani, you are one hell of a rhetoritician. Oberon? Well, I think were gonna get along great. Sansa, honey, watch your back.
>I don’t actually know what this person is thinking.
>It doesn’t matter what this person thinks about me.
>This emotion will pass.
>Things are never as bad as I make them in my head.
>I have plenty of talents.
>I am beautiful, intelligent, and strong.
>I’ve survived a lot of things.
>If I keep going, I will be proud of myself in five years.
Heading back to work tomorrow; need to remember these things.
Physics says: go to sleep. Of course
you’re tired. Every atom in you
has been dancing the shimmy in silver shoes
nonstop from mitosis to now.
Quit tapping your feet. They’ll dance
inside themselves without you. Go to sleep.
Geology says: it will be all right. Slow inch
by inch America is giving itself
to the ocean. Go to sleep. Let darkness
lap at your sides. Give darkness an inch.
You aren’t alone. All of the continents used to be
one body. You aren’t alone. Go to sleep.
Astronomy says: the sun will rise tomorrow,
Zoology says: on rainbow-fish and lithe gazelle,
Psychology says: but first it has to be night, so
Biology says: the body-clocks are stopped all over town
History says: here are the blankets, layer on layer, down and down.
— Albert Goldbarth, “The Sciences Sing a Lullaby” (via larmoyante)
It is difficult to be sat on all day, every day, by some other creature, without forming an opinion on them.
On the other hand, it is perfectly possible to sit all day, every day, on top of another creature and not have the slightest thought about them whatsoever."
this quote was literally in my sociology book
