fuckyeahhistorycrushes:

Michael Clark Rockefeller (1938-1961), was an American anthropologist and art collector. His great-grandfather was John D. Rockefeller, the richest dude in human history, and his dad Nelson was also a billionaire plus the governor of New York, so he could basically could have spent his whole life like that Smirnoff commercial if he wanted to, but instead he served in the army, traveled around the world, and joined a Harvard expedition to New Guinea to study the remote Ndani tribe. (That’s where this picture is from.) He disappeared on a later expedition to the even more remote Asmat region, where he’d gone to collect art for his dad’s museum, when he was just 23. For a long time it was considered a big mystery, but recent evidence suggests he was probably killed by the local Asmat tribespeople and that the Dutch colonial administration may have covered it up. Poor bby.
(However, we should note that getting killed on shore would mean he survived swimming 11 miles against the current through shark-and-crocodile-infested waters, which is pretty BAMF.)

"So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide."

"Become friends with people who aren’t your age. Hang out with people whose first language isn’t the same as yours. Get to know someone who doesn’t come from your social class. This is how you see the world. This is how you grow."

"I am not the sad girl anymore. No, I am more than that. I am strong and caring. I am both confident and insecure. I am simultaneously one of the kindest and meanest people you will ever meet. I am ugly, I am beautiful, and I am bursting with fire. I am home to strange and brilliant thoughts. I am heavily flawed and I am still good enough. I am so much, and I will never allow myself to be reduced to a single word again. Even when I am sad, I am still so much more. I am not the sad girl anymore. No, I am everything."

"Wake up early. Drink coffee. Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight, your mind right and your head up. Do well, live well and dress really well. Do what you love, love what you do. It is time to start living."
