45 years ago, three astronauts blasted off on a mission to put man on the moon.
Respect. More than any other emotion, that’s the feeling Derek Jeter has commanded throughout his 20 years in Major League Baseball. As the Yankees shortstop enters the halfway turn of his farewell season, Nike’s Air Jordan brand (a longtime sponsor of Jeter) has released an incredible commercial to celebrate his final year.
A quote from Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them (via observando)
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
A quote from Harry Callahan (via kari-shma)
Soccer and photography have changed a lot since the first World Cup in 1930, and Getty Images has the proof. Its Hulton Archive has millions of images dating all the way back to that first showdown between nations in Uruguay that, together, tell a story about the development of the game and the means we have of capturing it. “From glass plates to film to color to digital technology, it’s all about ultimately getting the moment,” said Matthew Butson, vice president of Getty Images’ Archive. “Whether it’s 1930 or 2014, you’ve still got to get your finger on the shutter button. That’s why I like these images—a split second earlier or later and you wouldn’t have gotten the shot.”
Nothing pleases me more than when somebody who was awe-inspired to be working with me realizes I’m just another schmuck that they’re hanging out with on set. I love that moment. I like it when that persistent illusion is smashed.
