Me, while traveling.

And in waiting rooms.

And frequently at home with my family.

“THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated” 
― Thomas Paine, The Crisis

#bucky barnes is given the name   #but steve rogers is the true winter soldier in the classical sense   #and bucky is forced to serve with the kind of blind robotic obedience that the name ‘captain america’ implies   #shut up i’m never okay abt them

wine tastes so bad. I’m convinced the whole world is in on an inside joke together trying to persuade me that wine tastes good to them. there’s no way any one can like the taste of it. it’s like bug spray. the whole frickin world pretends to like bug spray. I don’t understand why. stop the madness

this is my destiny: to put my son on the throne of england, and those who laughed at my visions and doubted my vocation will call me my lady, the king’s mother. i shall sign myself margaret regina, margaret the queen.

22 August 1485: Henry Tudor and his Lancastrian forces defeats Richard III’s Yorkist army at the Battle of Bosworth Field and ends the War of Roses.
