“So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays.”—John Keating, Dead Poet’s Society (via supprosetry)
“I may sound old-fashioned, but I want to think all women should be treated like I want my wife, daughters, and granddaughters to be treated. I notice today that good manners—like standing up when a woman enters the room, helping a woman with her coat, letting her enter an elevator first, taking her arm to cross the street—are sometimes considered unnecessary or a throwback. These are habits I could never break, nor would I want to. I realize today a lot more women are taking care of themselves than in the past, but no woman is offended by politeness.”—
One of my best friends is moving away for school this month… but another one of my best friends is moving back to the bay. I suppose I can deal with that. Although, I am surely going to miss her terribly. </3
All of my boys’ birthdays are this month too. Bout to be a broke ass month of August.
