Gabriel Garcia Marquez
A person close to the family has confirmed reports that that Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez has died. He was 87.
Garcia Marquez’s magical realist novels and short stories exposed tens of millions of readers to Latin America’s passion, superstition, violence and inequality. Widely considered the most popular Spanish-language writer since Miguel de Cervantes in the 17th century, Garcia Marquez achieved literary celebrity that spawned comparisons to Mark Twain and Charles Dickens.

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to
"you’re only contributing to the bigotry you claim to hate"
oh yeah i forgot i’m supposed to respect everyone’s opinion!! even when their opinion is oppressive toward groups of people with already unequal rights and incessant waves of negative feelings bestowed upon them!! and by disliking my oppressors, such as yourself, i am contributing to a system to where you are suddenly put into my place in life and it’s uncomfortable and different for you!! but that’s where it ends because once you’re placed into my shoes you immediately want out, and that’s your privilege!! i am fighting back against the bully and suddenly i’ve become bullyphobic!! mutual respect in an unequal system sounds FANTASTIC to me!!
I’m at that point in a semester where if a car hit me, I’d probably say thank you to the kind stranger
