hi, i'm alive.


The truth was, in 1914, Germany doesn’t want war. Yeah, there’s an arms race, but it’s Britain who’s leading it. So, why does no one admit this? That’s why. The dead. The body count. We don’t like to admit the war was even partly our fault because so many of our people died. And all the mourning’s veiled the truth. It’s not “lest we forget”, it’s “lest we remember”. That’s what all this is about - the memorials, the Cenotaph, the two minutes’ silence. Because there is no better way of forgetting something than by commemorating it.

----The History Boys (2006)

I have a bunch of random icons I forgot to post, and also desktop wallpaper versions of some postcard things. Uhm. Someday. I want to curl up in despair, but this is one of my pick-me-up movies and I've been watching it a lot lately. It's one of those things you quote endlessly; the script is just as fresh to me as it was 4 years ago, when I first watched it.

I know this is extremely late, but Happy New Year all the same! ♥

IT HAS SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LINES EVER, not to mention that I have a disturbing tendency to remember "Nee-shaw" at the most inappropriate times and end up cracking up like a weirdo. And it's just perfect for me, because I like funny things and snappy, witty dialogue and, well, schoolboys with that bit of depth and things-to-think-about but never got too heavy. XDDD
