Vive La Revolution

my-mother-is-the-republic:

"Perhaps the most concise summary of the outlook of the main-stream politician of the early twenty-first century was given by Tony Blair, when an interviewer asked him what he dreamed about. His reply was, ‘These days I don’t have much time for sleep, let alone dreams.’ As if it’s a matter of pride to be unable to dream…

The French Revolution shaped millions of minds into looking in the opposite direction. It created a world of boundless possibilities. It allowed millions of people to see all matters, whether personal, political, grand or minute, as connected and depending on each other; it allowed every concept to be open to question. The imagination could rule, and the full potential of human creativity was unleashed. The French Revolution created that sense across continents, across the world of slavery and into every corner  that could receive the news.

It asks the question of anyone who comes across it - ‘What will you do to combat the slave-owners, the gabelle officers, the Dukes of Brunswick of your own time? You can let history pass you by, or find the Drouet or Desmoulins that’s in all of us.

The French Revolution was the polar opposite of a society ruled by those who have forgotten how to dream.”

Temeraire Series: In His Majesty’s Service - Part 1

"If you would like to have your ship back," Temeraire said, "I will let someone else ride me. Not him, because he says things that are not true; but I will not make you stay."

Laurence stood motionless for a moment, his hands still on Temeraire’s head, with the dragon’s warm breath curling around him.

"No, my dear," he said at last, softly, knowing it was only the truth. "I would rather have you than any ship in the Navy."

-His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik

Bastian Schweinsteiger refusing to be subbed out after numerous accidents.

" If there was one German player who simply refused to lose, it was Bastian Schweinsteiger. The experienced midfield pass master endured a gruelling game. He was routinely sent tumbling by Argentine tackles that pushed the rules to their limit. But for all the bumps and scrapes he sustained, Schweinsteiger never shied away. Instead, he remained at the forefront of his nation’s efforts".

Filed under: Really fucking hilarious if you knew the history.

In LiveJournal’s latest code update, they put back subject lines in comments.

Yeah. That was my reaction too.

According to Cousin Bette ”The strongest affection known, that of a woman for a woman, had not such heroic constancy as the Church.” so I thought I would try and make an affection scale accordingly.
