- Upsetting Fanboys
Once upon a time there was a lovely princess. But she had an enchantment upon her of a fearful sort which could only be broken by throwing the one ring in the exhaust port of the death star. She was locked away in the Enterprise guarded by the terrible fire-breathing Voldemort. Many brave storm troopers had attempted to free her from this dreadful prison, but none prevailed. She waited in Voldemort's keep in the highest room of the tallest tower for Legolas, the dwarf of house Stark.

Plainly visible across the intervening water on account of their enormous size, were an array of bas-reliefs whose subjects would have excited the envy of a Dore. I think that these things were supposed to depict men- at least, a certain sort of men; though the creatures were shewn disporting like fishes in the waters of some marine grotto, or paying homage at some monolithic shrine which appeared to be under the waves as well.
Through a long and painful process, I've learned that happiness is an inside job - not based on anything or anyone in the outer material world. I've become a different and better person - not perfect, but still a work in progress.
- Watson Assistant Versioning Documentation
API requests require a version parameter that takes a date in the format version=YYYY-MM-DD. When we change the API in a backwards-incompatible way, we release a new version date. Specify the version to use on API requests with the version parameter when you create the service instance. The service uses the API version for the date you specify, or the most recent version before that date. Don't default to the current date.
I love you enough to fight for you, compromise for you, and sacrifice myself for you if need be. Enough to miss you incredibly when we're apart, no matter what length of time it is for and regardless of the long distance. Enough to believe in our relationship, to stand by it through the worst of times, to have faith in our strength as a couple, and to never give up on us. Enough to spend the rest of my life with you.
And through our differences, I have come to love you. Without my crazy, your life would be dull. Without your calm, my life would be out of control. We are the perfect balance. A perfectly imperfect love.
You are not just here to fill space or be a background character in someone else's movie. Consider this: nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.
When you face a challenge in your life, you should never EVER give up because you need to remember that when you face a challenge; it can either break you or make you. Don't let yourself down by being pessimistic! Always remember that you can do it no matter what the circumstance is.
Other people may judge you incorrectly, but they judge you nevertheless. They may not have all the facts at hand, but this doesn't stop them. Their judgment causes all the problems in life, especially if you live in close proximity to them.

To be yourself. This, it seems to me, is the most devastating weapon of all in a woman's arsenal. If you can encourage the man to be himself, to give you his character, his ways, then you know how to navigate him, and therefore, he will never be able to hide from you.
Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves. Children are smarter than any of us. Know how I know that? I don't know one child with a full time job and children.
- "Why the Halfling?"
I do not know. Saruman believes that it is only great power that can hold evil in check. But that is not what I have found. I have found that it is the small things, everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keeps the darkness at bay. Simple acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps it is because I'm afraid... and he gives me courage.

Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss; but every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and once you do, nothing will ever compare.

- "We're all proud of you, buddy." The Outsiders
Dally licked his lips nervously. "They're still writing editorials about you in the paper. For being a hero and all." He was talking too fast and too calmly. "Yeah, they're calling you a hero now and heroizin'' all the greasers. We're all proud of you buddy." Johnny's eyes glowed. Dally was proud of him. That was all Johnny ever wanted. "Ponyboy." I barely heard him. I came closer and leaned over to hear what he was going to say. "Stay, Ponyboy. Stay gold..."
- Melt For You
Your body isn't a thing to be looked at and judged against some standard of perfection that doesn't even really exist. It's the vessel that takes you through life, allowin' you to experience all the beautiful things life has to offer. Food. Sex. Sunsets. Music. Hugs. Laughter. A healthy body is a gift. Don't take it for granted. Don't treat it like some cheap one-night stand. Treat it like the love of your life. Treat it with respect and tenderness, but most of all, gratitude.
