One’s emotional state is always determined by the oddest and most accidental things, and it is precisely the most superficial factors that often fortify or diminish our courage. Stefan Zweig (via itsquoted)

These are the disease outbreaks that could have been prevented by proper vaccination according to the Council on Foreign Relations. You can explore the interactive map here.

Check out the thousands of whooping cough cases in the United States in 2011 and the measles outbreaks plaguing Europe.

Would also be interested to see the speed of decline in rotavirus, meningitis, and pneumonia deaths in south Asia and subsaharan Africa due to vaccines for those diseases.

You can find even more awesome art inside the building in celebration of Banned Books Week and the freedom to read, express and create as part of UNCENSORED: The Art Exhibition.

Laurie’s words three stories tall. Awesome.

I am driven by two main philosophies, know more about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you. ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson

What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
There is shadow under this red rock,
(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
from The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot (via hermionejg)
