"We are funny creatures. We don't see the stars as they are, so why do we love them? They are not small gold objects but endless fire."
-Saul Bellow, Henderson the Rain King
i’m so upset
I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb
they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!
if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter
do they speak latin because it’s a dead language
Knowing no limits (audacity) isn’t as good as knowing your limits and working to exceed them (courage).
