A great sorrow, and one that I am only beginning to understand: we don’t get to choose our own hearts. We can’t make ourselves want what’s good for us or what’s good for other people. We don’t get to choose the people we are (…) 

How do we know what’s right for us? Every shrink, every career counselor, every Disney princess knows the answer: “Be yourself.” “Follow your heart.”     Only here’s what I really, really want someone to explain to me. What if one happens to be possessed of a heart that can’t be trusted—?

MYTHOLOGY MEME  |  [5/9] GODS & GODDESSES » ARES

Ares was the god of courage, battle-lust, and warfare in greek mythology. He was born the son of Zeus and Hera, and was one of the twelve Olympians of the greek pantheon. He rides into battle upon his chariot with his sons Phobos (fear) and Deimos (terror), along with his sister and lover, Enyo (discord). He is considered to be the violent and terrifying aspect of warfare and is often depicted in battle scenes as a destructive force of power.

This Is How Much The Female Portrait Has Evolved In The Last 500 Years

Art history books have a reputation of showcasing dead, white, European males — DWEM — and the (mostly white) women they handpicked as muses. Portrait after portrait reveals a woman’s face through a man’s gaze, casting a rather unsavory light on the tendency of artists to eroticize, objectify or idolize the female form.

See the full video for a striking look at the female portrait.

FAIRY TALES MEME  » LITTLE BRIAR-ROSE (SLEEPING BEAUTY) by The Brothers Grimm

A LONG TIME AGO,  the Queen had a little girl who was so pretty that the King could not contain himself for joy, and ordered a great feast. He invited not only his kindred, friends and acquaintance, but also the Wise Women, in order that they might be kind and well-disposed towards the child. There were thirteen of them in his kingdom, but, as he had only twelve golden plates for them to eat out of, one of them had to be left at home.
The Wise Women bestowed their magic gifts upon the baby: one gave virtue, another beauty, a third riches, and so on with everything in the world that one can wish for.
When eleven of them had made their promises, suddenly the thirteenth came in. She wished to avenge herself for not having been invited, and without greeting, she cried, “The King’s daughter shall in her fifteenth year prick herself with a spindle, and fall down dead.” And, without saying a word more, she turned round and left the room. The twelfth, whose good wish remained unspoken, came forward, and, though she could not undo the evil sentence,  said, “It shall not be death, but a deep sleep of a hundred years, into which the princess shall fall.”

Henry’s a perfectionist, I mean, really-really kind of inhuman — very brilliant, very erratic and enigmatic. He’s a stiff, cold person, Machiavellian, ascetic and he’s made himself what he is by sheer strength of will. His aspiration is to be this Platonic creature of pure rationality and that’s why he’s attracted to the Classics, and particularly to the Greeks — all those high, cold ideas of beauty and perfection.
