"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.”
Is that fucking Beyonce turning into Shakira
People don’t even realize how amazing the direction and editing was for the Beautiful Liar music video. Along with how frickin amazing these two are together.
Why am I just now noticing this shit. I knew they looked like twins in this video but DAMN.

gallifreyburning: #Rose knows in her head (but doesn’t quite believe in her heart) that this is the Doctor #Even though he doesn’t have his blue eyes or big ears or gruff northern accent #And she’s mourned the loss of her Ninth Doctor #She’s cried over him and cried over this stranger he’s become #But this moment of crisis is a profound one #Not only because the Doctor proves he’s still himself by doing something life-threatening to himself to save Rose #(he pulls himself out of his regenerative coma at the mere whisper of ”Help me Doctor”) #But it’s the moment when Rose realizes she has to have faith in this new strange Doctor #She could try to pick him up out of bed and haul him out the window #But instead she gives him his sonic and asks for his help #It’s a small acknowledgement that he is still the Doctor #Before she finally acknowledges with her whole heart at the end of the episode that indeed he is the same man
Also there’s the Oncoming Storm look in his face because someone (or in this case, something) is threatening his Rose. No one (nothing) threatens his Rose.

I love how the hood falls in the perfect moment. Because it’s Julie Andrews and the hoodie ain’t falling untill it’s time.
