And, I can easily see your Tom Brady with the thinking man’s football player, Tiki Barber, and I think I can raise you, hmmm, an Isaac Newton, a William Shakespeare, a Blaise Pascal, an Albert Einstein, an Immanuel Kant, an Aristotle, a Jane Austen, a Bill Gates, a Mahatma Ghandi, a Nelson Mandela, and all four Beatles. We win.”—John Green (via dragonite) (via old-lights) (via nerdfighter) (via loverwife) (via effyeahnerdfighters)

when we were kids, running barefoot up and down our dead-end street? we played hide and seek with super-soaker guns, traded our best pokemon cards and licked popsicles until our tongues were rainbow. we watched the sunset as the mosquitoes came out; waiting for our mothers to call us in for bed. we waved goodbye and ran back inside, and we went to sleep happy. we went to sleep happy. we went to sleep happy.
