haughty

Still I Rise

Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Torio marched up to Sand's door and knocked hard. "Sand? Open up. I need to speak to you about something. And no, it is not what you think it's about." she demanded.

Sand opened the door, looking haughty as per usual even wrapped up in a blanket. “I should have guessed it was you,” the moon elf drawled as he stood aside. “Very well, do make it quick.”

IT’S NO SECRET THAT MASASHI NAKAYAMA, CHIEF DESIGNER OF THE ALL-NEW 2016 MAZDA MX-5 MIATA, HAS A DOTING LOVE FOR HIS RED, FIRST-GENERATION MX-5.

But now, Nakayama throws himself into the task of creating another life partner. One so captivating it could steal him away from his first love. "All the essential elements, the things that we have fought to preserve over the past quarter of a century, they are all still there,” explains Nakayama. “The proportions that make the people on board standout, the open feeling of streaking through space suspended between ground and sky, the countenance that is not haughty but intimate, and the timeless quality that means you never get tired of being with this car. But you won’t fullyunderstand it until you’re standing next to the all-new MX-5, until you openthe door and settle in behind the wheel, and until you drive it through townwith the top down.”

WhatNakayama speaks about so passionately is what Mazda calls jinba ittai, or ‘rider and horse as one’—and it’s always been thedriving inspiration behind the creation of the MX-5. Simply put, jinba ittai is one-ness with the road,the surroundings and the vehicle. It’s a sensation that’s only experienced by an exclusive club—those behind the driver’s seat of an MX-5.

ACCORDING TO NAKAYAMA, “JUST DRIVING HOME FROM WORK, THE MX-5 MAKES THE WORLD A MORE BEAUTIFUL PLACE.”

“The MX-5 has the extraordinary ability to make everyday scenery look more beautiful. It can even add a feeling of divinity to your daily life. Whether you are standing beside the vehicle looking at it, or sitting in the seat, either caught up in the driving or enjoying the ride on the passenger side—whatever the situation, your view will be filled with forms that will set your five senses trembling.”

NOW, ON THE EVE OF INTRODUCING THE ALL-NEW MX-5 TO THE WORLD, THE ANTICIPATION AT MAZDA CAN BE CUT WITH A KNIFE.

All the passion, all the exhilaration and all the painstaking craftsmanship that went into the fourth-gen MX-5 boils down to one thing: will enthusiasts embrace what we believe to be the next chapter of the pure modern roadster? It’s a question only you can answer.

stephanericherthanyou asked:

aomido space au?

"I suppose," sniffs Midorima in that haughty way Daiki’s come to appreciate, "it isn’t so bad, being stuck up in this aircraft with someone like you for six months.”

"Aww, is that your way of proposing?" drawls Daiki, propelling himself over their dinner toward the other man and looping his arms around his waist.

Midorima scowls and shoves air-vacced mashed potatoes in his face.


Send me a pairing and an AU and I’ll write a three sentence fic!

To me the Yiddish language and the conduct of those who spoke it are identical. One can find in the Yiddish tongue and in the Yiddish spirit expressions of pious joy, lust for life, longing for the Messiah, patience and deep appreciation of human individuality. There is a quiet humor in Yiddish and a gratitude for every day of life, every crumb of success, each encounter of love. The Yiddish mentality is not haughty. It does not take victory for granted. It does not demand and command but it muddles through, sneaks by, smuggles itself amidst the powers of destruction, knowing somewhere that God’s plan for Creation is still at the very beginning.

Fifth Harmony Hogwarts House Sorting: Lauren Jauregui, Slytherin

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means 
To achieve their ends.

It is better to be hated for what you are, than loved for what you are not.
-André Gide

Lauren’s eyes still occasionally flash with the fire of a starving tiger and then she still tries to giggle and shrug it off like she’s the least ambitious Catholic school girl ever because she’s smart enough to know now is not the time to unleash the beast. (x)

We do not know who the first student at Hogwarts was, for each house claims it was one of their own. And the first students to be taught at Beauxbatons were the last Duke of that palace’s six lovely daughters and rather lackadaisical son; we do not know who first picked up a book among them, but we suspect it was one of the girls.

Everyone, however, knows of the first student to pledge herself to Durmstrang. It was haughty, beautiful Sigrid, who saw the gods of her fathers giving way to weak and sentimental Muggle nonsense, who excelled at curses, who would be the death of kings. Oh, you may flout your Merlin all you like. But he was a charlatan half the time, and besides this everyone knows that the Muggles have confused their account of him, have thrown in a bit of every sorcerer that preceded him, have elevated him to the status of half-demon just to make his saga more powerful, more terrible, more imposing.

They did not need to do this with Sigrid.
