“I had not intended to love him: the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, green and strong! He made me love him without looking at me.”—Jane Eyre (via quote-book)
“Thermodynamic miracles… events with odds against so astronomical they’re effectively impossible, like oxygen spontaneously becoming gold. I long to observe such a thing. And yet, in each human coupling, a thousand million sperm vie for a single egg. Multiply those odds by countless generations, against the odds of your ancestors being alive; meeting; siring this precise son; that exact daughter… Until your mother loves a man she has every reason to hate, and of that union, of the thousand million children competing for fertilization, it was you, only you, that emerged. To distill so specific a form from that chaos of improbability, like turning air to gold… that is the crowning unlikelihood. The thermodynamic miracle…. But the world is so full of people, so crowded with these miracles that they become commonplace and we forget… I forget. We gaze continually at the world and it grows dull in our perceptions. Yet seen from the another’s vantage point. As if new, it may still take our breath away.”—Alan Moore (Watchmen)
is to early for me to function, or be allowed to type in CRN’s alone and un-supervised. Last night we planned our schedule perfectly. 12 credits of science, and one geography class. Well this morning i type all my CRN’s in and i see that i was at 18 credits, and i was thinking that’s weird because i was only at 15. THEN there was the doom, i had signed up for chem 111 AGAIN, and not my organic chemical lab. So i caught my mistake, and i click class search, monday ochem lab..ONE SPOT LEFT! and it was mine. i know my mom helped me out on that one, but if i didn’t get that then my whole schedule would have been messed up and we wouldn’t have been about to be lab partners for the third semester in a row. hah nerdy but we can’t understand/concentrate without one another, one picks up what the other doesn’t.
now, time to start my terrorism paper, and my roommate is listening to adele, so it’s pretty fantastic.
“My dear, you don’t seem to realize that all there is in life is love. That’s all there is. Money doesn’t matter, what you own doesn’t matter, how old you are, who your friends are, what you accomplish in life, means nothing. The only thing worth anything is love. Love is what makes our time on Earth worth something. And you know something else? Love, true love, is rare. It doesn’t happen very often. Most people spend their lives searching for it and never find it.”—
