“You say that you love rain, but you open your umbrella when it rains. You say that you love the sun, but you find a shadow spot when the sun shines. You say that you love the wind, but you close your windows when wind blows. This is why I am afraid, you say that you love me too.”

—   William Shakespeare  (via loveage-moondream)

This ad campaign by Leo Burnett for Jeep is flipping awesome! Literally. Each one of these animals can be flipped upside down to reveal an entirely different animal.

““Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
― Mark Twain”

"December 19, 1973: I only know because our meticulous bookkeeper wrote the date on the back of her copy of the photo. A cold wind blew, which is why so many of us look pained through the smiles. We’d had quite a year: started sewing packs, made the decision to get more seriously into the clothing business, bought the building next door (an abandoned meatpacking plant) and renovated its old wooden-floored exec offices into a proper retail store. We’d gone on a hiring spree, I can tell from this photo, thanks to retail and sewing. You wouldn’t have seen so many women around six months earlier. Of the 25 or so grownups here, 41 years later two still own the company, one serves on the Board, three still work here—25% of the original count. Waddya know." - Vincent Stanley, one of the three who still work here.

“A society that allows thousands of homeless people to roam the streets with no protection for their bodies; that spends, on the average, more for the last week of a dying elderly person’s hospital care than for the medical needs of the first ten years of a child’s life; that refuses in international congresses to join other nations in protecting biodiversity and limiting chemicals that contribute to global warming: this society hates the body, human bodies, and all other animal and plant bodies that make up the body of our planet.”

These are my books. I like stories with magic powers in them. Either in kingdoms on Earth or on foreign planets. Usually I prefer a girl hero, but not always. (Moonrise Kingdom, 2012)
