Further dogstagrams

But bless us, things may be lovable that are not altogether handsome, I hope? […] I have a friend or two whose class of features is such that the Apollo curl on the summit of their brows would be decidedly trying; yet to my certain knowledge tender hearts have beaten for them, and their miniatures - flattering, but still not lovely - are kissed in secret by motherly lips. I have seen many an excellent matron, who could have never in her best days have been handsome, and yet she had a packet of yellow love-letters in a private drawer, and sweet children showered kisses on her sallow cheeks. And I believe there have been plenty of young heroes, of middle stature and feeble beards, who have felt quite sure they could never love anything more insignificant than a Diana, and yet have found themselves in middle life happily settled with a wife who waddles. Yes! Thank God; human feeling is like the mighty rivers that bless the earth: it does not wait for beauty - it flows with resistless force and brings beauty with it.

-Adam Bede by George Eliot

God I absolutely love Jane Eyre. I know it has its issues but, like

Jane and Rochester can only be together once they have become equals, so Jane becomes financially independent and discovers her middle class blood, and Rochester GOES BLIND AND LOSES A HAND




Title: Accent Tag 56 plays

I never used to think these kind of accent tag things worth doing because I always kind of felt that basically everyone spoke like me to a matter of degree. Having at uni eventually realised that this is not so - case in point, I saw this off Dot - here goes. You can do it here, should you wish. My speech impediment does make me cringe, if you’re wondering.
