I very much believe that people will act according the expectations you set for them. Like if a teacher personally expects me to do well in their class or to focus I will and if I’m expected to be anything other than hardworking well, I just won’t come to class. Anyway, I think my fellow students and I can handle the internet, thank you very much.
Cornelia Funke. (via abrandnewsong)
Does someone want to explain to me what Cornelia Funke has written/what her books are about, because I’m too lazy to Wikipedia atm? (Besides, hearing about books from fans is usually better than wiki.)
“You liked the idea of space travel? Going places?”
“I don’t know. Yes. No. It wasn’t going places. It was being between.” Hitchcock for the first time tried to focus his eyes upon something, but it was so nebulous and far off that his eyes couldn’t make the adjustment, though he worked his face and hands. “Mostly it was space. So much space. I liked the idea of nothing on top, nothing on the bottom, and a lot of nothing in between, and me in the middle of the nothing.”
“I never heard it put that way before.”
“I just put it that way; I hope you listened.”
“No Particular Night or Morning”, by Ray Bradbury
