And this is also why I refuse to be silent, or be "nice" when I see oppression in all its forms. I will not sit quietly and allow LGBT rights to be eroded further, I will not sit and speak softly about women's rights, and I refuse to be silent about racism. "Being nice" has never changed governments, it has led not revolutions, and it has never given power back to the people.

I have a feeling that young Moriarty would have wrote this on one of those elementary school papers on the first day of school. And when his teacher pointed out that he forgot his commas, he just looked up at her with his adorable smile of death (now known as the charming smile of death) and sweetly said "No I didn't miss" and went back to his coloring page.
Punctuation! #lol #funny #hilarious #motivational #pickmeup #truth #quote #quotes #sayings #advice #inspirational
Punctuation! I think I laughed a little too much at this :-D
Use commas, don't be a psycho! punctuation saves lives

Words I fear will come back to haunt my generation and possibly the next
So true. I'm in my thirties and still don't own a smart phone. I was in my teens before we got a computer. Mine was considered the technologic age. I think it's the saddest thing to see kids plugged into electronics from a very young age. What ever happened to playing with toys? Reading books, not on an e-reader? Or, heaven forbid, actually go outside using their minds to create their own world of imaginary play things? Try something different, look around your environment and talk to someone.

#owl #quotes Be kind to unkind people. . .
I always tell my daughter that mean people are unhappy people so this quote is particularly apt for me as a mother explaining about unkind people to my daughter...
"Be kind to unkind people. They need it most." So True!
Be kind to unkind people. Need to remember this. It was that kind of week.

Things We Say Today Which We Owe To Shakespeare- fun stuff. who wouldda known!!??
Phrases We Owe to Shakespeare Becky, a 20-year-old English Lit geek living in London, scribbled out this list in a Moleskine notebook at 3 am a couple nights ago. She posted it on her Tumblr page, and within 24 hours, more than 11,000 people had saved it in their favorites file. She was astonished. “I still don’t know how something I scribbled in a hurry at 3am got so many notes in the space of a day? Shakespeare is clearly too awesome,” Becky said in an update on the post today. “I spelt “bated” wrong, awk … Someone said this looks like a serial killer’s notebook, which made me laugh a lot. They’re not wrong, I’ve been a sleep deprived zombie lately.” She certainly is a girl on a mission. On her birthday on August 30th, she set a challenge for herself: Read a book every week until she turns 21. “Lately, I’ve gotten into the terrible habit of buying books but never reading them. Gradually I’ve been reading less and less,” she said. She put together a list of 52 books (heavy on Palahniuk, Murakami and Hemingway) and posted it here. “I thought it would be a good way to encourage others to read more too.” Want to take the challenge? The details are here. She’s also giving away the books she reads. Awesome.

Funny Miracle Whip Ecard: I try to keep an open mind about everything except grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
Yep. There are some things you just can't compromise on. And yes, I just ended a sentence with a preposition, a practice which is semantically appropriate and reflects the evolutionary nature of the English language.
I try to keep an open mind about everything except grammar, spelling, and punctuation. And don't forget to add homophones! My curse for being a teacher my ultimate pet peeve!
I am descended from a long line of English teachers. I am a stickler for grammar and the Oxford comma.
Grammar is not subjective...there is no room for an open mind when it comes to these things.
My husband will have a good laugh (at my expense) with this one -- I try to keep an open mind about everything except grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
amazing what taking a breathe can do to your experiences in life

Punctuation is powerful...my English teacher in high school had this in her classroom!
Grammar Nazi and girl power, all in one fell swoop! Totally Tootsie!!!!
An English professor wrote the words: A woman without her man is nothing on the chalkboard and asked his students to punctuate it correctly. All of the males wrote: A woman, without her man, is nothing. All of the females wrote: A woman: without her, man is nothing. Punctuation is powerful - Funny picture quotes
What the women wrote is so true!!
U go girls!
