THINGS I LIKE

  • when people use my name in conversation
  • when people say “this reminded me of you!”
  • when people remember little things i say/do
  • when people genuinely thank me for things i’ve done for them
  • when i think of the same thing at the same time as someone else and you give each other the look

“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.

“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”
“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”
“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”


from The Velveteen Rabbit (or How Toys Become Real) by Margery Williams, 1922

The role of a gentleman came naturally to Hamilton, even if his West Indian élan would rub some American-born aristocrats the wrong way. Despite what his enemies would later insist (and following his father’s example), Hamilton was never interested in the bourgeois pursuit of accumulating money. He was to be known for his gallantry, extreme touchiness on questions of honor, and sophisticated tastes. When his illegitimacy was bruited about in the late 1790s, he wrote a friend that he had “better pretensions than most of those who in this Country plume themselves on ancestry.”
