mythology meme - two of two objects: the apple of discord
The wedding of Peleus and Thetis, a sea goddess, was a large event. The wedding was very popular, and most of the important gods and mortals were invited. One goddess who was not invited was Eris, the goddess of discord. She threw a golden apple into the crowd with the words “The Fairest” inscribed on it. Three goddesses, Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite all claimed the apple should be for them. To resolve the disagreement Zeus appointed Paris, a Trojan prince, to judge the contest.
All three goddesses bribed Paris. Hera offered Paris control over Asia. Athena offered him wisdom and victory in battle. Aphrodite offered him the most beautiful woman in the world. Paris picked Aphrodite for the title “The Fairest.” In return Aphrodite helped Paris kidnap Helen, wife of the King Menelaus of Sparta. Stories conflict as to weather if Helen fell in love with Paris (with the help of Aphrodite) and left willingly, or if she was forcefully abducted by Paris. In either case this event set into motion the Trojan War for the next ten years.

Happy Birthday, Jessica Phyllis Lange (April 20, 1949)By the time you’re past middle age, you get a really strong sense of self. I don’t care what people think of me anymore. I’m not looking for approval or acceptance. I don’t feel like I have to adjust or try to fit in. You become kind of eccentric.
do you ever just get a vibe that someone has a crush on you and then you’re not sure if they actually do or if you’re just really really self-absorbed
straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bys, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.
Why didn’t you shoot me, Tris?
I couldn’t do that. It would have been like shooting myself.
If I wasn’t an actress, I’d probably do something with food. Finding seeds, planting seeds, watching them grow, harvesting the fruits, cooking the fruits, eating them, seeing how my body reacts, and even digesting.
“Part of growing up is realizing you learn to love so many people. It’s about forming those relationships and finding what will last forever.”
↳ Tessa Gray from The Infernal Devices
“You know that feeling,” she said, “when you are reading a book, and you know that it is going to be a tragedy; you can feel the cold and darkness coming, see the net drawing tight around the characters who live and breathe on the pages. But you are tied to the story as if being dragged behind a carriage and you cannot let go or turn the course aside. I feel now as if the same is happening, only not to characters on a page but to my own beloved friends and companions. I do not want to sit by while tragedy comes for us. I would turn it aside, only I struggle to discover how that might be done.”
“I’m glad it was Shailene Woodley who got to be my Hazel Grace, and I hope she’s happy that I got to be her Gus.” - Ansel Elgort
I really can’t think about kissing when I’ve got a rebellion to incite.
