When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on—series polygamy—until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.

“Look, America is no more a democracy than Russia is a Communist state. The governments of the U.S. and Russia are practically the same. There’s only a difference of degree. We both have the same basic form of government: economic totalitarianism. In other words, the settlement to all questions, the solutions to all issues are determined not by what will make the people most healthy and happy in the bodies and their minds but by economics. Dollars or rubles. Economy uber alles. Let nothing interfere with economic growth, even though that growth is castrating truth, poisoning beauty, turning a continent into a shit-heap and riving an entire civilization insane. Don’t spill the Coca-Cola, boys, and keep those monthly payments coming.”
― Tom Robbins, Another Roadside Attraction

Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won’t adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is to sign on as its accomplice. Instead of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet. That would mean that security is out of the question. The words “make” and “stay” become inappropriate. My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free.

“A source tells ET that the young bride looked “breathtaking” in a Monique Lhuillier gown and veil as she walked down the aisle during a small and intimate ceremony with the couple’s closest friends and family in attendance. 

More guests were later welcomed at the location for a reception, which ran late into the night and featured “dancing, drinks and lots of donuts.” 

Panabaker’s Flash castmates Grant Gustin, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh and Jesse L. Martin, were all present for the special day, as well as fellow CW stars Katie Cassidy and Victor Garber. 

The source added that the actress is now preparing to return to Vancouver, Canada, next week to kick off filming season four of the popular series."

A few little things in 14x04 that killed me

1. Arizona nervously adjusting in her seat during Amelia’s surgery

2. Meredith’s “It’s okay she’s okay”

3. Meredith holding sleeping Amelia’s hand and telling her she’s going to shower (especially because this is finally an insight to how Mer would have been with sleeping Lexie in the psych ward)

4. Amelia’s hands clinging to Deluca during early ambulation scene

5. The fact that April was literally just laying in the E.R for ??? however long and AZ was the only one who cared enough to stop

6. Amelia’s HANDS in the MRI freak out

7. Stephanie reference

8. “My sisters”

İnsan mutsuzken hep dikkati kendine dönüktür. Gitgide kendini çok ciddiye almaya başlar. Mutsuzu neşelendirmeye çalıştığında, istemez, karşı çıkar. Çünkü neşelendiğinde, dikkati kendinden uzaklaşacak ve evrenle kucaklaşacaktır. Mutsuzluk, kendine düşkünlüğün varacağı son noktadır.
