HAL: How about some poetry?

I’ll never forget. When I came out of the church and saw you for the first time. It was as if I stepped outside on a cloudy day … and suddenly the sun came out.

Outlander music: main titles, instrumental version

Do you ever feel like a chess piece yourself?

                                                                           In a game being played against your will.

"Do you know when I was born? On the twentieth of October, in the Year of Our Lord nineteen hundred and eighteen.”

Oh God, I mentioned Shakespeare. I’m such a pretentious tit.

favorite movies: Into the Wild (2007)
“I read somewhere… how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong… but to feel strong.” 

decided to watch an episode of the good wife before going to bed…

well it’s now several episodes later and 3:35am oops


movies i connect to on a spiritual level [2/??]: little miss sunshine (2006)

French writer. Total loser. Never had a real job. Unrequited love affairs. Gay. Spent 20 years writing a book almost no one reads. But he’s also probably the greatest writer since Shakespeare. Anyway, he uh… he gets down to the end of his life, and he looks back and decides that all those years he suffered, those were the best years of his life, ‘cause they made him who he was. All those years he was happy? You know, total waste. Didn’t learn a thing. So, if you sleep until you’re 18… Ah, think of the suffering you’re gonna miss. I mean high school? High school — those are your prime suffering years. You don’t get better suffering than that.
