“Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.”

- Douglas Adams (via bajo-el-mar)

“If someone started telling stories about how my gender was controlled by our genitalia and sexual arousal turns us into rapist automatons, I would be outraged. I would explain in very small, very loud words that I am a person and I can goddamn control myself. I wish more men would speak up to say ‘actually, even when I can’t turn my erection off, I can sure as hell use the rest of my body to put it somewhere it won’t bother anyone.’”

Me:  This sounds silly, but it makes me sad to think that if the Internet had never been invented we wouldn't have met.

Oh, I don’t know about Christina. ‘Cause then everyone calls her Tina… And every Tina I’ve known is a real judgmental bitch.

“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”

- Jane Austen

“Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”

- Ernest Hemingway

“The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.”

- George Bernard Shaw

“I’ve always been interested in people, but I’ve never liked them.”

- W. Somerset Maugham

“When dealing with people, let us remember that we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.”

- Dale Carnegie

“Man is a rational animal - so at least I have been told. Throughout a long life, I have looked diligently for evidence in favor of this statement, but so far I have not had the good fortune to come across it.”

- Bertrand Russell
