He couldn’t be expected to understand that. That the emptiness in one twin was only a version of the quietness in the other. That the two things fitted together. Like stacked spoons. Like familiar lovers’ bodies.

"

Silence is where you held me. The weight of your voice coated the air with honeysuckle; I wish it hadn’t tasted of poison.

I wish I hadn’t been so willing to drink it all.

Are you here to fight with us, Katniss?

Are you here to fight with us, Katniss?

You’ve mended my wounds more than once, I owe you something for that. And what kind of a friend would I be if I left you to that mad bastard Randall?

I like to think about the first law of thermodynamics, that no energy in the universe is created… none is destroyed. That means that every bit of energy inside us, every particle will go on to be a part of something else, maybe live as a dragonfish, a microbe, maybe burn in a supernova 10 billion years from now. And every part of us now was once a part of some other thing… a moon, a storm cloud, a mammoth. A monkey. Thousands and thousands of other beautiful things that were just as terrified to die as we are.

We gave them new life… a good one, I hope.

it’s not easy being in charge, is it?

Since the episode with Jack and his sister he’s been running away and is on his own,so he’s only got himself to look out for. And returning to Scotland (which is where he’s at when we first meet him) is sort of the beginning of him coming back to have this responsibility - he gets married to this alien creature (I mean alien as in a beautiful thing) and he has to learn to care for her and then for a family, for the house and for the estate. Its a great journey to go on. - Sam Heughan

In 1968, during the administration of US President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eartha Kitt encountered a substantial professional setback after she made anti-war statements during a White House luncheon. Kitt was invited to the White House luncheon and was asked by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War. She replied: “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot.”

During a question and answer session, Kitt stated:

The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don’t have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons — and I know what it’s like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson — we raise children and send them to war.

Her remarks reportedly caused Mrs. Johnson to burst into tears and led to a derailment in Kitt’s career
