“I’ve lived through him, you know. Other people can have their opinion objectively about where Loki should go, but I’ve lived through every moment. And sometimes I’m the only person who knows how it feels…” Tom Hiddleston

Tom Hiddleston, bringing you words and quotes of wisdom since 1981

It’s like the mind of an old very wise man trapped in the body of a young and hot british actor

I gave myself permission to care, because there are a lot of people in this world who are afraid of caring, who are afraid of showing they care because it’s uncool. It’s uncool to have passion. It’s so much easier to lose when you’ve shown everyone how much you don’t care if you win or lose. It’s much harder to lose when you show that you care, but you’ll never win unless you also stand to lose. I’ve said it before. Don’t be afraid of your passion, give it free reign, and be honest and work hard and it will all turn out just fine.
If you’re under attack,” he says, looking me square in the eye, his voice raw, “if your values are under attack, if you’re being shamed, if you’re being humiliated, the animal response is to hide in the bush. It’s to be less, to make yourself smaller, to diminish in size and volume. And the lesson of 2016 is we have to love more, we have to risk more, we have to be braver, we have to be more outspoken.

(AKA The quote that changed my life) There are a lot of people in this world who are afraid of caring. Or afraid of showing that they care because it’s uncool. It’s uncool to have passion. It’s so much easier to lose when you’ve shown everyone how much you don’t care if you win or lose. It’s much harder to lose when you show that you care. But you’ll never win, unless you also stand to lose. Basically, I’ve said it before; don’t be afraid of your passion. Like, just give it free reign, and be honest, and work hard, and it will all turn out just fine.

“The thing about acting is that you want to do roles that stretch and challenge you. You want to do roles that are outside your comfort zone.” [x

[Strange and the Avengers are researching old magic books]

Steve: These spells, these really work? I mean, can you really “turn your enemies inside out”? Or “learn to excrete gold coins”?

Loki: That one’s not so much fun.

Strange: They work, Rogers. But they take concentration, being attuned with the forces of the universe.

Tony: Right. You can’t just go “librum incendere” and expect…

[Tony’s book bursts into flames and he slams it shut, extinguishing it]

Bruce: [wearily] Tony, don’t speak Latin in front of the books.
