Zachary: I can remember growing up and watching people on talk shows going ‘I’m in a play in New York’, and I’d go ‘That’s amazing!’. That was the biggest dream that I had.
Jimmy: What if there was a time machine, and you’re watching you right now? Say hi to yourself! (x)

We accept the reality of the world with which we are presented.
You may love Harry Potter, but you’ll never love Harry Potter as much as ABC Family loves Harry Potter.

In John 13, Jesus makes a provocative statement: “They will know we are his disciples by the way we love one another.” That’s provocative. I’ll tell you why. The culture in which we live
has a growing acidity in it.
What I mean by that is there are people in our culture whose whole job it is to tear other people down. We exalt our heroes quickly so we can tear them down even faster. “How awesome is this person. How amazing is this person.” Then we’ll just rip them to shreds for some careless sentence they said, for something they did that we, as a culture, feel they shouldn’t have done. There’s no rhyme or reason to it. It’s honestly madness. A lot of that actually seeps into the church.
We don’t tend to give the benefit of the doubt. We don’t tend to be gracious, despite the fact we’re the recipients of an unmeasured amount of grace. We have a tendency to attack people quickly, to be disappointed quickly, to grow frustrated quickly, and (God help us) we have the tendency to wound others quickly when we feel like there has been injustice, whether there has been injustice or not. This provocative statement, that the world, those outside the church of Jesus Christ, would know we are inside of Jesus Christ by how we interact with one another (namely, our love for one another), I’ve seen in flashes, but it’s far from consistent. ”
God puts a good weight on his people to work toward reconciliation whenever we have sinned against others or harmed others, whether we know we did or not.

Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters
they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
