i’m thankful my childhood was filled with imagination and bruises from playing outside, instead of apps and how many damn likes you get on a picture

middletonroyalty:

remember that time kate sang twinkle twinkle little star to dying children but the media reported about how she ran in wedges at the beach 

remember that time kate filmed her first ever video message bringing awareness to children’s hospice week but people focused on how uncomfortable they thought she looked

remember that time kate attended a forum that discussed many issues teenagers face today like self esteem, bullying, and domestic violence but the media went crazy about the wind blowing up her skirt for two seconds

remember that time kate was doing something genuinely important but everybody chose to focus on stupid shit

Happy Birthday William Horatio Powell | July 29th, 1892 March 5th, 1984

His careful attention to the neceties of grooming; his perfectly tailored suits, spotless cuffs, and collars; his orotund voice curled around well-turned phrases; the deferential way he bowed his head slightly when being introduced all would have helped him gain entry at any elite, leather-chair-and-brandy-snifter men’s club.

I’m not a ladies’ man. I haven’t the physical characteristics for one thing. Not handsome. Someone like Valentino should have played this part. Not Bill Powell.
Unfortunately, or perhaps it is fortunate that I have always been forced to stand on my acting ability. I haven’t a personality such as Jack Gilbert`s, for instance, that attracts women and makes them like me for myself. When I am on the screen I must make them forget me entirely and think only of my acting”

Powell is to dialogue as Fred Astaire is to dance. His delivery is so droll and insinuating, so knowing and innocent at the same time, that it hardly matters what he’s saying.
