"Some neuroscientists go so far as to say we have one brain but two minds - or even, two people living inside our mind. There’s the version of us that acts on impulse and seeks immediate gratification, and the version of us that controls our impulses and delays gratification to protect our long-term goals. They’re both us but we switch back and forth between these two selves. Sometimes we identify with the person who wants to lose weight, and sometimes we identify with the person who just wants the cookie. This is what defines a willpower challenge: Part of you wants one thing, and another part of you wants something else."
Kelly McGonigal, The Willpower Instinct
"[The] high standard held up to the public mind by the … peculiar sanction to the expensive and highly rarefied medical instruction obtained by graduates of Oxford and Cambridge, did not hinder quackery from having an excellent time of it; for since professional practice chiefly consisted in giving a great many drugs, the public inferred that it might be better off with more drugs still, if they could only be got cheaply, and hence swallowed large cubic measure of physic prescribed by unscrupulous ignorance which had taken no degrees."
-George Eliot, Middlemarch
I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS GIFSET

OMG I LOVE HER.
HOLY CRAP SUBSCRIBED!
There are times when I just want to play this gif as a reaction shot. What am I talking about ALL THE TIME I want to do that.
if you were wondering why my blog is called daily krill…
“The biggest animal that exists or has ever existed… The Blue Whale! Some weigh nearly 200 tons, twice the size of the largest dinosaur… The largest animal on earth feeds almost exclusively on the smallest: krill, shrimp-like crustaceans. They take many tons of water into their ballooning throats in a single gulp and sieve out what it contains.”

"Are you beginning to dislike slang, then?" said Rosamond, with mild gravity.
"Only the wrong sort. All choice of words is slang. It marks a class."
"There is correct English: that is not slang."
"I beg your pardon: correct English is the slang of prigs who write history and essays. And the strongest slang is the slang of poets."
"…the philanthropic banker …who predominated so much in e town that some called him a Methodist, others a hypocrite, according to the resources of their vocabulary…"
George Eliot, Middlemarch
My headphone cords were leaning on my phone’s touch screen & they wrote an app review that autocorrect rendered randomly awesome.
I like that somehow Uruguay is in there.
"…he was gradually discovering the delight there is in a frank kindness and companionship between a man and a woman who have no passion to hide or confess."
