"There must be something in books, something we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing."
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 (via introspectivepoet)
"I’m pretty tired of adults telling me how stupid teens are."
John Green, on whether or not his characters are ‘too intelligent’ (via toosasssyforyou)
"It’s hard to talk about the importance of an imaginary hero, but heroes are important. Heroes tell us something about ourselves. History books tell us who we used to be, documentaries tell us who we are now, but heroes tell us who we want to be. And a lot of our heroes depress me. But when they made this particular hero, they didn’t give him a gun; they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn’t give him a tank or a warship or an x-winged fighter; they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And they didn’t give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray, they gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts, and that’s an extraordinary thing. There will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the Doctor."
Steven Moffat on the importance of Doctor Who (via explorationsanddaydreams)
