Ahoy there, brothers of America. I'm Kaustubh, a seventeen year-old currently starting my final year in high school. I came across this site a week ago, when looking for style tips for somebody my…Continue
Far, far too many to count, though Gone With The Wind, To Kill A Mockingbird, War and Peace, The Godfather, and more recently the A Song of Ice and Fire saga will figure prominently.
Once again, way too many. The Lord of the Rings, Gladiator, Nolan's Batman Trilogy, Dead Poets Society, Titanic, and A Few Good Men are some favourites.
I tend to favour pre-21st century music. I love the classics - the Beatles, ABBA, Chris de Burgh, Pink Floyd, and Simon & Garfunkel.
"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."
"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
"It's difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart."
"We are only humans and the Gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory and our great tragedy."
"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible."

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More
"I can't remember if I have mentioned this before, but there is a book that lays the groundwork for such a question and it was by an author called Barry Fells. He posited that there were many groups here in what we call the United States…"
"There has been no era that the following era did not think was oppressive. 100 years from now, they'll think we are all backwards asshats, too. How exactly, is hard to discern. But asshats in their eyes, we will be.
I was having a conversation with a woman today and I made a positive comparison to the style and composition of women in the Antebellum South. An African-American lady overheard me speaking and became extremely angry that I made a positive reference to a time when her ancestors were enslaved. I asked her if she thought the bubonic plague was the only thing going on before the European Renaissance, then I asked her if taxes would be the only reason an American would have stayed loyal to Britain…See More
