“Hurry up and fail.”—Jim Moskun (successful entrepreneur & former employer). Whatever you are doing, you won’t get it right the first time. Get over it, get it out, get past it, and get better. (via aaronwhite) (via ninosh)
Yeah, long story. Morgenstern is just german for morning star. The morning star is the last bright star that shows up before dawn. It’s referred also as the light-bringer, because it literally shows up just before dawn. In latin that’s spelled Lucifer, and it means exactly that, light bringer, star of the morning. Even in the bible. But give it a few centuries and it’s become a fallen angel with horns, pitchfork and tail. Talk about lost in translation.
The always inspiring LeBron James and the olympics
After comparing the feeling of receiving a gold medal on the podium to opening a prized gift on Christmas morning, James was asked if that meant he would lead the Americans to the title. “Absolutely,” James responded. Asked if he guaranteed it, he repeated, “Absolutely.”
The other day someone was complaining about being bored with the tumblrs they normally read. Below is a list of tumblrs I can’t go a day without checking:
52Books - Laura has made it her mission to read a book a week for all of 2008. I love keeping up with her list and have garnered many ideas from it. (Note: I am also a member of the Tumblr Bookclub, which I recommend if you are looking to read good books but don’t have time for one a week.)
lfarm - Lauren’s content is always amusing and often teaches me something. I love her carefree, optimistic outlook on life. She doesn’t have an ounce of New York snobbery, which is a rarity around here, and her posts always put me in a good mood.
Squashed - this blog helps me tap into my political side. To be honest, some of his stuff is a little over my head, but it gets me thinking.
en quotations - this tumblr is a collection of quotes. And who doesn’t love quotes?
blahblahblahg - Sabine is just a damn cool girl. She hails from Canada and thus posts a lot of content us Americans wouldn’t share.
Seriously though - I’m going to dub Erin the queen of reblogging. She finds the coolest content on tumblr and keeps nicely organized for me.
