"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing."
I’d like to see Andrew Garfield as an extra in the background of a scene in Avengers 2. No talking. No focus on him. Just him in the background taking pictures.
"As a teenager, I didn’t understand that saying you’re a feminist is just saying that you hope women and men will have equal rights and equal opportunities. What it seemed to me, the way it was phrased in culture, society, was that you hate men. And now, I think a lot of girls have had a feminist awakening because they understand what the word means. For so long it’s been made to seem like something where you’d picket against the opposite sex, whereas it’s not about that at all. Becoming friends with Lena – without her preaching to me, but just seeing why she believes what she believes, why she says what she says, why she stands for what she stands for – has made me realise that I’ve been taking a feminist stance without actually saying so."
"Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences."
I love when people randomly follow me because I assume they’ve just seen something I said and went “ah yes. This nerd seems particularly strange. Let’s see what else it does”
“Some infinities are smaller than others, even so, you should cherish the small infinity you may have. It’s possible to make numbered days last infinity, don’t waste your life hoping for things that may never happen, cherish the things you have and the people around you. Life isn’t just sad and depressing, it’s full of beauty, all you have to do is look for it.”
"Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: they feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It’s like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can’t stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship."
