Je forme une entreprise qui n’eut jamais d’exemple, et dont l’exĂ©cution n’aura point d’imitateur. Je veux montrer Ă  mes semblables un homme dans toute la vĂ©ritĂ© de la nature; et cet homme, ce sera moi. 

Moi seul. Je sens mon cƓur, et je connais les hommes. Je ne suis fait comme aucun de ceux que j’ai vus; j’ose croire n’ĂȘtre fait comme aucun de ceux qui existent. Si je ne vaux pas mieux, au moins je suis autre. Si la nature a bien ou mal fait de briser le moule dans lequel elle m’a jetĂ©, c’est ce dont on ne peut juger qu’aprĂšs m’avoir lu. 

Que la trompette du jugement dernier sonne quand elle voudra, je viendrai, ce livre Ă  la main, me prĂ©senter devant le souverain juge. Je dirai hautement: VoilĂ  ce que j’ai fait, ce que j’ai pensĂ©, ce que je fus. J’ai dit le bien et le mal avec la mĂȘme franchise. Je n’ai rien tu de mauvais, rien ajoutĂ© de bon; et s’il m’est arrivĂ© d’employer quelque ornement indiffĂ©rent, ce n’a jamais Ă©tĂ© que pour remplir un vide occasionnĂ© par mon dĂ©faut de mĂ©moire. J’ai pu supposer vrai ce que je savais avoir pu l’ĂȘtre, jamais ce que je savais ĂȘtre faux. Je me suis montrĂ© tel que je fus: mĂ©prisable et vil quand je l’ai Ă©tĂ©; bon, gĂ©nĂ©reux, sublime, quand je l’ai Ă©tĂ©: j’ai dĂ©voilĂ© mon intĂ©rieur tel que tu l’as vu toi-mĂȘme. Être Ă©ternel, rassemble autour de moi l’innombrable foule de mes semblables; qu’ils Ă©coutent mes confessions, qu’ils gĂ©missent de mes indignitĂ©s, qu’ils rougissent de mes misĂšres. Que chacun d’eux dĂ©couvre Ă  son tour son cƓur au pied de ton trĂŽne avec la mĂȘme sincĂ©ritĂ©, et puis qu’un seul te dise, s’il l’ose: je fus meilleur que cet homme-lĂ . 

I HAVE begun on a work which is without precedent, whose accomplishment will have no imitator. I propose to set before my fellow-mortals a man in all the truth of nature; and this man shall be myself. 

I have studied mankind and know my heart; I am not made like any one I have been acquainted with, perhaps like no one in existence; if not better, I at least claim originality, and whether Nature has acted rightly or wrongly in destroying the mold in which she cast me, can only be decided after I have been read. 

I will present myself, whenever the last trumpet shall sound, before the Sovereign Judge with this book in my hand, and loudly proclaim, ”Thus have I acted; these were my thoughts; such was I. With equal freedom and veracity have I related what was laudable or wicked, I have concealed no crimes, added no virtues; and if I have sometimes introduced superfluous ornament, it was merely to occupy a void occasioned by defect of memory: I may have supposed that certain, which I only knew to be probable, but have never asserted as truth, a conscious falsehood. Such as I was, I have declared myself; sometimes vile and despicable, at others, virtuous, generous, and sublime; even as Thou hast read my inmost soul: Power Eternal! assemble round Thy throne an innumerable throng of my fellow-mortals, let them listen to my confessions, let them blush at my depravity, let them tremble at my sufferings; let each in his turn expose with equal sincerity the failings, the wanderings of his heart, and if he dare, aver, I was better than that man.”

Les Confessions - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

A truly MINDBLOWING lesson on the origin of American Southern accents.


The gif could not be more perfect in describing what just happened.

yay historical linguistics!

very interesting, but doesn’t fix the fact that the American Southern accent is obnoxious to hear.  I just can’t stand it.

Because Delaware accents are so pleasant.

Sigur Rós - The Rains of Castamere


Sigur Rós cover The Rains of Castamere for Season 4 of HBO’s Game Of Thrones

And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
that Lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o’er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o’er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.
