Quote: “It doesn’t matter what country someone’s from, or what they look like, or the color of their skin. It doesn’t matter what they smell like, or that they spell words slightly differently…some would say more correctly. I’m a person. You’re a person. That person over there is a person. And each person deserves to be treated like a person.” ~ Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie

Quote: “A great love is a lot like a good memory. When it’s there and you know it’s there, but it’s just out of your reach, it can be all that you think about. And you can focus on it and try to force it, but the more you do, the more you seem to push it away. But if you’re patient, and you hold still, well maybe, just maybe, it’ll come to you.”; ~ Leonard L. Church; from Red vs. Blue
