“As INTPs, we’re not just reacting to the current iteration of the problem at hand. With the encyclopedia as our guide, we are also fighting every recorded fight we ever had on that topic. We are also fighting every fight we can predict ever having in the future. And that makes the battle huge for us. Everything is on the table, and the stakes are high.

“It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taught about myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on this earth as though I had a right to be here.”—James Baldwin (via harukimuracallme)
“Men’s rights activists don’t organize marches; they don’t build shelters or raise funds for abused men; they don’t organize prostate cancer-awareness events or campaign against prison rape. What they actually do, when they’re not simply carping in comments online, is target and harass women—from feminist writers and professors to activists—in an attempt to silence them.”—
George’s son calls from Hogwarts on the first day of school terrified and keeps asking if George is okay, he reassures him that everything is alright but asks why he would ask that. George’s son explains that he thought he had died because he could have sworn he had seen a ghost that looked just like him joking around with the older students
there are two hundred and six bones in the human body
and there are around seven billion humans alive right now.
that means that there are at least one trillion
and four hundred and forty-two billion
bones in the world
i find enough solace to keep going
between the twenty seven in your hand
and the twenty seven in mine.
