“Well-meaning adults can easily destroy a child’s love of reading: stop them reading what they enjoy, or give them worthy-but-dull books that you like, the 21st-century equivalents of Victorian “improving” literature. You’ll wind up with a generation convinced that reading is uncool and worse, unpleasant.”

Neil Gaiman, “Why our future depends on libraries, reading, and daydreaming”


This is wonderful.

50 Days of Doctor Who - October 19th: a Who-ism you use in real life.

Well, there are several!

"Have you ever thought what it’s like to be wanderers in the Fourth Dimension?"

An Unearthly Child (when I’m in one of my stranger moods)

"Time has flowed by." - Dragonfire (all the time - get it?)

"How marvellous for you!” - Terror Firma (The 8th Doctor conversing with a decidedly mad Davros)

"Hello!" (every Doctor says ‘hello’ in the most wonderful ways)

"No power in the universe can stop the Daleks!" - The Dalek’s Master Plan(when I’m in one of my more fanatical moods)

"Bow ties are cool." (whenever somebody mentions bow ties)
