    Lady Macbeth, Macbeth’s wife, a deeply ambitious woman who lusts for power and position. Early in the play she seems to be the stronger and more ruthless of the two, as she urges her husband to kill Duncan and seize the crown. After the bloodshed begins, however, Lady Macbeth falls victim to guilt and madness to an even greater degree than her husband. Her conscience affects her to such an extent that she eventually commits suicide. Interestingly, she and Macbeth are presented as being deeply in love, and many of Lady Macbeth’s speeches imply that her influence over her husband is primarily sexual. Their joint alienation from the world, occasioned by their partnership in crime, seems to strengthen the attachment that they feel to each another.

  2. Why the S1 arc is my personal favorite


    Rose Tyler was not the mystery; there was nothing mysterious about Rose Tyler. Bad Wolf was not the answer to the question of “Who is Rose Tyler?”

    Rose Tyler was the answer to “Why are we being followed by Bad Wolf?” She was the solution to the mystery.

    She did extraordinary things just by being an ordinary person.

    um Rose Tyler could only save the world through the TARDIS and Bad Wolf using her as an avatar… Clara’s mystery ended up being just her saving the Doctor through her compassion and love for him… Clara was actually more in control of her actions than Rose was in their respective moments

  4. Some old books have hidden messages on the edge of their pages.






    This was done through a technique called “fore-edge painting,” which is an illustration that is hidden on the edge of the pages of the book. The technique allegedly dates back to the 1650s.

  13. "Oh rascal children of Gaza. You who constantly disturb me with your screams under my window. You who filled every morning with rush and chaos. You who broke my vase and stole the lonely flower on my balcony. Come back, and scream as you want and break all the vases. Steal all the flowers. Come back..Just come back.."
    — Khaled Juma, a Palestinian poet from Gaza.  (via nowinexile)
