When you’re at the pool lounging on a beach chair and some little kids are running and the lifeguard screams out “no running” do you respond “excuse, not all of us are running”? No, you don’t. The lifeguard didn’t have to specifically state who they were talking to because you’re intelligent enough to comprehend that the comment wasn’t being directed at you.
Found a quote that shuts down that “not all men” argument pretty well. (via mykicks)
Joel Parés, a U.S. Marine-turned-photographer, has created a photo series that seeks to question the ugly prejudices that many of us harbor, to one extent or another, against groups of people different from ourselves.
If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.
(Excludes most of the package films. Some films, eg The Lion King, are impossible to pin down exactly and some, like Aladdin and Treasure Planet, are anachronistic, so these are estimations. A few have been split into 2 if there is more than one time period in the movie, and sequels have been put together.)
Sometimes I stop and realize that society is entirely made up. No one has any idea why we exist or what happens after we die, but we all live our lives as though we know what we’re doing and where we’re going. There are people that the entire world knows, but that’s just a product of humanity. We have our 9-5 jobs, we start families, we have fun, but everyone’s just ignoring the fact that our entire existence is unexplained. There’s a layer under our created reality that no one will ever understand.
