"A chief event of life is the day in which we have encountered a mind that startled us."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Someday, I want to be one half of that couple whose cute photos get a thousand likes, because they are literally adorable.  *le sigh*

"Tony, you’re too young to understand this right now, so I thought I would put it on film for you.  I built this for you.  And some day you’ll realize that it represents a whole lot more than people’s inventions - it represents my life’s work.  This is the key to the future.  I’m limited by the technology of my time, but one day you’ll figure this out.  And when you do, you will change the world.  What is, and always will be, my greatest creation… is you.”

- Howard Stark, Iron Man 2

"To romanticize the world is to make us aware of the magic, mystery, and wonder of the world; it is to educate the senses to see the ordinary as extraordinary, the familiar as strange, the finite as infinite."

Novalis
