My favorite Spring Break Quote:
*two men’s eights are rowing side by side doing steady state while coach yells critiques from the launch*

Coach (to one of the younger varsity guys): Sit up straighter, hard on the blade, and push goddammit!
*guy does as he was told and the boat picks up*
Coach: Yes! Yes! It’s like a different rower possessed your body. He was from the sixties. I saw the handlebar mustache. He entered through the ear.

By this point both boats are laughing so hard that timing went out the window and a novice crabbed. Coach just laughed and told us to get back into it.

I don't think you've done this, so one favorite quote from each of the riders? Thanks :)

Sure! I love quotes! :D It’s hard for me to pick a number one favorite quote for everyone, but here are some that I enjoy!

Hiccup #1: We are the voice of peace and, bit by bit, we will change this world. (How to Train Your Dragon 2)
Hiccup #2: Gobber, take off your pants! (Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon)
Astrid: I’m going to take your helmet and shove it up your dirty little- (Cast Out)
Snotlout #1: Slarburg! Slarburg! Nork nork nork! (A View to a Skrill)
Snotlout #2: You broke my heart, Thor. You broke it right in two. (Big Man on Berk)
Snotlout #3: Why read words when you can just kill the stuff the words tell you stuff about? (How to Train Your Dragon)
Ruffnut: No. You wish I was your sister. You think I’d be dragging your monkey butt all over the jungle risking your life if my brother weren’t the most important thing in the world to me? (Bad Moon Rising)
Tuffnut: That’s my sister out there, Astrid. And if this goes wrong and we don’t save her… I couldn’t live with myself. (Edge of Disaster)
Fishlegs: Speed eight, armor sixteen. Plus eleven stealth times two. Firepower fifteen. Attack eight, venom twelve. Jaw strength eight.
Dagur: That stuff can kill you from the inside, Hiccup. Revenge, anger, obsession… trust me, I know. It can make you do things you never thought you were capable of, cause you to take chances, make mistakes.  if that doesn’t end you, it’ll eat away at you slowly. (Enemy of My Enemy)

I also highly enjoy the insults Hiccup and Snotlout share in Thawfest, the things Snotlout says when he’s arguing with Hiccup in Defiant One, and some of the ridiculous things that come out of Tuffnut’s mouth throughout RTTE.

Preference: Their Yearbook Quotes.

a/n: this is of course assuming that they all stay in school. c: also some of these aren’t so good but some of these boys really had me stuck. It was hard enough picking my own yearbook quote last year ;P

Darry knew he was lucky because a lot of his friends didn’t have two parents or parents that treated them right. He knew that without his parents he wouldn’t have been able to get through high school and do all he did so he kept it simple for his yearbook quote.

“I love you mom and dad. Thank you for taking good care of me.”

Sodapop used a a quote from something Ponyboy wrote when he was little. In the third grade Ponyboy had to write an essay about someone that inspired him and he wrote about Sodapop. That always meant a lot to Sodapop so he used one of his favorite lines from that essay.

“There are a lot of things that inspire me about my brother Sodapop. He’s always kind and happy and he loves everybody. But what I love most about him is how hard he works for the things he wants. I know school is hard for him but he tries his best anyways and even though he doesn’t think it will happen, I can’t wait to see him graduate.”
-Ponyboy Curtis

Ponyboy’s quote is an obvious pick but he only had one thing in mind when it came time to pick his quote.

“Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.”
-Robert Frost

Two-Bit wanted to leave one more piece of his joker legacy at the school so his original pick was “Goodbye teachers, goodbye class, high school you can kiss my ass.” but that was quickly shut down. He was annoyed and so he told Ponyboy to pick something for him. Ponyboy took a while to find what he thought was the perfect quote and Two-Bit loved it.

“Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age and dreams are forever.” -Walt Disney**

Dally refuses to pick one. He really doesn’t care but since everybody has to have one with their picture the policy is that they pick one from Winnie the Pooh books***. He was absolutely pissed when he found this out but it was to late to submit one. He threatened to kick the crap out of the entire yearbook committee (earning him detention for a week). When he saw the quote he told everyone he hated it but he didn’t mind so much what it said, he just hate that the guys were teasing him about where it came from.

“We didn’t know we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun.”

Steve chose a song lyric for his. It was one of his favorites and it for him well.

“Gotta do some livin’, got the wanderlust. Better clear the highway ‘cause I’m gonna move some dust. Oh I got wheels, wheels on my heels. And I gotta keep rollin’, rolling along.”

-Elvis Presley

Johnny always loved music. He was always intrigued in how it could reach so many people and how lyrics could mean different things to different people so he picked some lyrics that meant something to him.

“Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you. Forget the dead you’ve left, they will not follow you. The vagabond who’s rapping at your door. Is standing in the clothes that you once wore. Strike another match, go start a new. And it’s all over now, Baby Blue.”

-Bob Dylan

**I read that this wasn’t actually a Walt Disney quote but it worked so we’re going with it. :P

***My high school’s policy that anyone that didn’t submit a quote had their’s picked from Winnie the Pooh so this is a real thing.


get to know me meme [2/30 male characters]: Shawn Hunter

“I don’t know. I don’t really know anything. I’m just cute and fun to watch.”

anonymous asked:

What's your favorite quote?

This is so hard considering I literally have 200+ notes in my phone of quotes, but I’ll go through and pick some faves :)

“If you only walk on sunny days you’ll never reach your destination.”

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or even a year. But eventually it will subside, and something else will take its place. If I quit however, it will last forever.“

“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”

“Your body is made of the same elements that lionesses are built from. Three quarters of you is the same kind of water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away. Your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that wolf genes code for. When you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember, the air you breathe in fuels forest fires capable of destroying everything they touch. On the days you feel ugly, remember: diamonds are only carbon. You are so much more.”

“I believe in the gift of pain. I believe that loss deepens us. I am grateful for God’s graciousness toward me that he would teach me these things. As much as I hate to admit it, I’ve found a new gratitude, & it’s gratitude for the way God has redeemed darkness & pain, for the way he brings something beautiful out of something horrible.”

“It’s amazing how you can get so far from where you had planned, and yet find it was exactly where you needed to be.”

“You can’t be brave if you’ve only had wonderful things happen to you.”

“Live in such a way that if someone spoke badly of you no one would believe it.”

“Effort won’t betray you.”

“Everything you are going through is preparing you for everything you asked for.”

“If there was never change, there would be no butterflies.”

“Go as long as you can go … then take another step.”

(I just started crying because these touch me so deeply lol)

“Sometimes life will test you but remember this: When you walk up a mountain, your legs get stronger.”

“My current situation is not my final destination.”

“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.”

“Jesus replied, ‘You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.’”

“I stopped looking for the light. Decided to become it instead.”

“I just hope 
I’ve touched places 
further and deeper, 
past places 
any hands could ever reach.”

“This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache. You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.”

“God’s 3 answers to your prayers: 1. Yes. 2. Not yet. 3. I have something better in mind.”

“You are so used to your features, you don’t know how beautiful you look to a stranger.”

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”

“If you want the things that other people don’t have, then you have to do the things that other people don’t do.”

“Remember yourself as a little girl, she is counting on you to protect her.”

“I remember the days I prayed for the things I have now.”

“I know today is Monday and you assume it’s going to suck, but according to statistics, there will be over 5,000 weddings, 10,000 childbirths, and 42 million hugs occurring today throughout the United States. Also today, there will be at least 4 people that will win the multimillion dollar lotteries, 600 people will get promotions at work, and 3,000 people will lose their virginity. There will also be 600 dogs adopted, 35,000 balloons sold, and 800,000 skittles eaten. Plus, the words “I love you” will be said over 9 million times. So again, I know today is Monday and you assume it’s going to suck, but just smile, because according to statistics, it should actually be a really nice day.”

“Even more important than the medals or the titles that you will win is the person that you become through the process of trying to reach that point. That will stay with you forever.”

“Work until your idols become your competition.”

“Date someone who gives you the same feeling of when you see your food coming at a restaurant.”

“It takes more than two legs to finish this race.”

“Work hard in silence and let your success be your noise.”

“God says ‘The reason why some people have turned against you and walked away from you without reason…has nothing to do with you. It is because I have removed them from your life because they cannot go where I am taking you next. They would only hinder you at the next level because they have already served their purpose in your life. Let them go and keep moving. Greater is coming your way.’”

“I hope you meet someone who wants to experience you and not just see you by their eyes. Someone who doesn’t only want to have sex with you but moves their fingers over your body like trying to find a city on a world map and mark their favourite destinations. Someone who wants to experience you like a masterpiece. Whenever we observe a masterpiece we get the urge to touch it and most of the time we do, involuntarily, because it’s so perfect that we not only want to see it with our eyes and forget its details later on because I read somewhere that every time you recall a memory your brain edits it bit by bit so we long to experience it so that each part which contributes to its perfection stays with us after all how scary it would be to forget how perfect you felt. So I hope someone experiences you like a summer breeze stroking your hair, like the warmth of bonfire on a chilly winter night, like the taste of that traditional homemade dish by a mother for her children who’s taste forever lingers in their mouth. I hope you find someone who justifies in treating you like the perfect art you are.”

“They say running tests the limits of the human heart. But really, it reminds me that I had one all along.”

“We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don’t believe in miracles?”

“For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
So collapse. 
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.”

“Someday you will look back and know exactly why it had to happen.”

“She was unstoppable. Not because she did not have failures or doubts, but because she continued on despite them.”

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

“The only reason you should ever look back is to see how far you’ve come.”

“You must be prepared to work always without applause.”

“When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.”

anonymous asked:

root's cochlear implant took a LOT of suspension of disbelief. what a hot mess this plot point is.

yeaa they hardly even write her as hard of hearing it was so carelessly done

ok but that scene where she says "my cochlear implant is picking up wi fi signals” sadfjsadjfkshda?? thats my favorite line and its so funny cause she looked like she was trying very hard to create a magic telepathic link

tdgal1  asked:

10 and 11

Thanks @tdgal1

10. Favorite line or lines of dialogue that you’ve written 

 Oh gosh - I have to go through a lot of fics lol but here are two faves 

Those two are probably the most notably quotes from both of those stories. But I love both of those stories so much, it’s hard to pick one dialogue conversation.

11. If I’m showing off just one of your pieces to someone, which one should it be?

You want me to choose a favorite one of my babies @tdgal1? How dare you! :) This is difficult. Probably BTCBB because that is the most popular, but if the reader has limited time, my one-shot “It Feels Remarkable” is one that I’m most proud of as well. And both have wonderful art done by @smoakqueenz and @pleasantfanandstudent so they put a nice sheen on my work. ;) 

Anyone else want to ask me a question from this lovely list? I had a lot of fun answering!

Q&A Spotlight: Adam J. Kurtz

We have been inspired by the go-gettingness and productivity of this endlessly witty and insightful fellow known as Adam J. Kurtz whose book journals help keep us on track, motivated, and well . . constantly smiling!   In 2016, he was named one of PRINT Magazine’s “15 Under 30” New Visual Artists, and his first publication –1 Page at a Time: A Daily Creative Companion– has been translated into fifteen languages!  

We recently caught up with Adam to learn about how he came up with some of his massively popular book journals including his latest one– Pick Me Up – and about his recent in-store events at Vans retail shops in Boston, New York, and Wilmington.  Not only will you be inspired by his publications, but also by his personality, charm, and experiences in this Q&A.

Favorite Quotes (and the actions that prove their truth)

Gravity Falls 20 Day Challenge: Day 18-Favorite Quote

I couldn’t pick just one, so here’s three of my top favorite quotes:

“I even petitioned the government to remove this day from calendars. Now I’m not allow to fly on airplanes” I don’t know why, but this line just KILLS me every time. When I first saw this episode I was laughing so hard at this that I missed the next two minutes of dialogue. There’s of course the sweet gesture of how far Stan really is willing to go to help Soos out, but also his manner of helping is less than…normal.

“I don’t know why I tell you things.” This is literally my relationship with my sister. She’s worried about serious real things and I’m just laughing and being silly. You tell her things because she’s your best friend Dipper. Just love her.

And finally…

“Everything I’ve done, everything I’ve worked for, it’s all FOR THIS FAMILY” This line, it makes me tear up every time. It shows such raw, genuine emotion from Stan, something we’ve never really seen before this episode. You’re able to see past all his facades and pretenses to see this is a man who has literally crossed every line and compromised every value to see the face of his brother again. 

Stan, you had better not die.

28. on a scale from 1 to 10, how hard is it for someone to get under your skin?

Probably 5? I’m not rattled by a ton of things, but the things that do rattle me are alarmingly effective. :p 

29. three songs that you connect with right now.

I mentioned “Come Home” by Jon Foreman in my last reply so I’ll pick that again. Also “Falling Slowly” by Glen Hansard and “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by Sleeping At Last.
