"I saw this elderly gentleman dining by himself, with an old picture of a lady in front of him. I though maybe I could brighten his day by talking to him.
As I had assumed, she was his wife. But I didn’t expect such an interesting story. They met when they were both 17. They dated briefly, then lost contact when he went to war and her family moved. But he said he thought about her the entire war. After his return, he decided to look for her. He searched for her for 10 years and never dated anyone. People told him he was crazy, to which he replied “I am. Crazy in love”. On a trip to California, he went to a barber shop. He told the barber how he had been searching for a girl for ten years. The barber went to his phone and called his daughter in. It was her! She had also been searching for him and never dated either.
He proposed immediately and they were married for 55 years before her death 5 years ago. He still celebrates her birthday and their anniversary. He takes her picture with him everywhere and kisses her goodnight.
Some inspiring things he said;
"I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love"
"I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates"
"People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it."
"Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?"
Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours.”
i would sell my soul for certain fanfics to become movies
Okay so this is a map of Panem..
Throughout all the books in my head it was just like this
If you don’t use an empty house to sing obnoxiously and off key in your underwear you are doing life wrong
so today it snowed for the first time this year and ive naturally been online all day and didnt know so i went to take out the garbage in bare feet and stepped in an inch snow and i just yelled "what the fUCK" and i just heard my neighbour in his backyard go “oh my god she’s outside”
But you don’t understand. Effie saw a future with Peeta and Katniss’ children. She saw them living happy, rich, beautiful. She thought that they had finally gotten peace, and she was so happy for them. She wanted to go to their house and play with the kids, teach them all about capitol and the beautiful life. She was not mean or stupid, just born and raised in this culture that she was never truly touched by with feels of fear and hatred. This is one of the first times Effie really feel hate and fear, because in this scene she is truly sorry. Truly sorry that the only two persons that she has seen grow, two of the only persons she loved, are now sent to the certain death. Peeta and Katniss grew to be like Effie’s children, and that is beautiful.
