23: A Taste of Armageddon
Kirk: Death, destruction, disease, horror. That’s what war is all about, Anan. That’s what makes it a thing to be avoided.
As strange as it may seem, Mister Spock, you’re in command now
Ian, what you and I have makes me free.
- Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
- Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
- Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.
Imagine Jim and Bones on a beautiful planet covered in fields of flowers and Jim is starting to do the captain thing. He’s fretting about getting everything done on the ship, making sure everyone is being taken care of, getting all the paper work done, etc.
Bones just plucks up one of the flowers and tucks it behind Jim’s ear.
"Darlin’, relax. It can wait a couple of hours." So Jim takes a deep breath and just lets him self fall back into the tall grass with a loud "Oof".
Bones sits down next to him and runs a hand through his hair.
"acting is the most wildly overpaid position imaginable."
I don’t care what anyone says, this is the greatest moment in British film history.
