    we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.

    Going to California by Led Zeppelin 

    Spent my days with a woman unkind, Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine. 
    Made up my mind to make a new start, going to California with an aching in my heart. 
    Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair. 
    Took my chances on a big jet plane, never let them tell you that they’re all the same. 
    The sea was red and the sky was grey, wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today. 
    The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake 
    as the children of the sun began to awake. 

    Seems that the wrath of the Gods 
    Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow; 
    I think I might be sinking. 
    Throw me a line if I reach it in time 
    I’ll meet you up there where the path 
    Runs straight and high. 

    To find a queen without a king, 
    They say she plays guitar and cries and sings… la la la 
    Ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn 
    Trying to find a woman who’s never, never, never been born. 
    Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams, 
    Telling myself it’s not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.

  11. "We need the humanities not because they will produce shrewder entrepreneurs or kinder C.E.O.s but because, as that first professor said, they help us enjoy life more and endure it better. The reason we need the humanities is because we’re human. That’s enough."

  12. "Every writer, of every political flavor, has some neat historical analogy, or mini-lesson, with which to preface an argument for why we ought to bomb these guys or side with those guys against the guys we were bombing before. But the best argument for reading history is not that it will show us the right thing to do in one case or the other, but rather that it will show us why even doing the right thing rarely works out."
    — Adam Gopnik on the value of studying history. (via newyorker)
