This may look like an ordinary brown jar to you, but it is possibly the most written about jar in history. This famous tea jar even has a name: Chigusa. In 16th C Japan, tea connoisseurs wrote copiously about its beauty—its shape, glaze and color—and designed elaborate accessories with which to adorn it. To the tea men, this jar was the equivalent of what Benedict Cumberbatch is to the Tumblr community. 
You can see it on view at our freersackler until July 27. More about Chigusa and the #ArtofTea

My favorite thing about feminism is that you literally only have to say the word and BOOM done, men will literally prove your point FOR you

*and some women (i once spent 5 minutes on an anti-feminist website where women held up signs about why they didn’t “believe” in feminism, and i wanted to scream)

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. By Steve Jobs (via feellng)

This is the chemical formula for love:

C8H11NO2+C10H12N2O+C43H66N12O12S2
dopamine, seratonin, oxytocin.

It can be easily manufactured in a lab, but overdosing on any of them can cause schizophrenia, extreme paranoia, and insanity.

Let that sink in.
