Jon Richardson. (via letitiajade)
Basically. I’m a whole person, I just get lonely sometimes.
It took me a long time to realize that I’m a whole person alone. I don’t like the idea that I need another person to be complete. When I’m with my partner it doesn’t complete me. That implies need. I don’t want either of us to be here because we need to be completed. I want both of us to be whole, and be here because we want to be.
Christine O’Donnell, topping Yale University’s annual list of most notable quotes for 2010. Miss O’Donnell appears on the list twice.
Tea Party darling Christine O’Donnell may have lost the Delaware Senate race. But she heads the list when it comes to expressing the spirit of the times.
“I’m not a witch,” her famous TV ad declaration that preceded the demise of her Republican Senate campaign, tops Yale University’s annual list of most notable quotes for 2010.
O’Donnell doesn’t have the No. 1 slot to herself, however. She’s tied with former BP CEO Tony Hayward’s lament to reporters: “I’d like my life back.” That was when his company’s off-shore rig was spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico, endangering life and livelihoods along the U.S. coast.
ale librarian Fred Shapiro, who compiled the list, said he looked for quotes that are “famous or important or particularly revealing of the spirit of our times.” “It was not pleasant dealing with this material,” Shapiro himself was quoted as saying by the New Haven Register, Yale’s hometown daily. He explained that the most notable remarks are “generally polarizing, fairly harsh. Some would say they are extreme.”
O’Donnell’s ‘witch’ quote came to symbolize a phenomenon of the 2010 campaign: Tea Party candidates who proved ill-equipped to thrive in the burning spotlight of national politics.
O’Donnell actually made the Yale list twice. The second entry is her rhetorical question about the constitutional separation of church and state, uttered during an Oct. 19 debate: “You’re telling me that the separation of church and state is found in the First Amendment?”

Whenever those fuckwads yell they are “taking the country back,” you know they really mean “the when women and Negroes knew their place!”
Evanna Lynch on whether she would have liked Harry and Luna to end up together (via holymotherofhnng)
It would be a friendship that blossoms into perfect love. They’re so perfect for each other.
Daniel Radcliffe (via avid)
he’s only, like, two inches shorter than rupert grint…
Rove: Daniel Radcliffe, who would you turn gay for?
Daniel: You know, I think Albert Einstein if he was alive because I think intelligence is sexy.
Intelligence is the one quality that pwns everything else for me. That’s why I love DanRad. That MOFO is smart which equals HNNNG = SEXY.
