My year in review: Travelled the world with my best friend, jumped out of a plane, became a vigilante. Almost lost my best friend. #shieldlife
Fangirl Challenge (2/?? MiniSeries) —> Emma (2009)
I have been so busy managing everyone else’s heart - I do not know my own!
I’m asking you to trust me. Sarah, I don’t want anything from you. I just want you to know that wherever you go, I’ll be there to help you. Someone you can call whenever. Trust me, Sarah. I’m here for you always.
are you ready? because i want you to pay attention. this is the beginning of something.
I know you despise me; allow me to say, it is because you do not understand me.
Jamaica Inn (episode 3)
Jamaica Inn (episode 1)
Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art / Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night / And watching, with eternal lids apart, / Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite, / The moving waters at their priestlike task / Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores, / Or gazing on the new soft-fallen masque / Of snow upon the mountains and the moors - / No - yet still stedfast, still unchangeable / Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast, / To feel for ever its soft swell and fall, / Awake for ever in a sweet unrest, / Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath, / And so live ever - or else swoon in death.
"My name is Kathy H. I’m 28 years old. I’ve been a carer for nine years. And I’m good at my job. My patients always do better than expected, and are hardly ever classified as agitated, even if they’re about to make a donation. I’m not trying to boast, but I feel a great sense of pride in what we do. Carers and donors have achieved so much. That said, we aren’t machines. In the end it wears you down. I suppose that’s why I now spend most of my time not looking forwards, but looking back, to The Cottages and Hailsham, and what happened to us there. Me. Tommy. And Ruth." - Never Let Me Go (2010)
“Behold the hands, how they promise, conjure, appeal, menace, pray, supplicate, refuse, beckon, interrogate, admire, confess, cringe, instruct, command, mock and what not besides, with a variation and multiplication of variation which makes the tongue envious.”
― Michel de Montaigne
