(1) President Abraham Lincoln, who had depression
(2) Writer Virginia Woolf, who had bipolar disorder
(3) Artist Vincent Van Gogh, who had bipolar disorder
(4) Writer Sylvia Plath, who had depression
(5) Mathematician John Nash (from A Brilliant Mind), who had schizophrenia

Inspired by this post

people don’t care about the millions of people with mental illnesses that deal with their condition to the best of their abilities and just live, they just want a story where they can correlate mental illness with violence in order to scare people from talking about mental illness.

I, being a sufferer from both Depression and Schizophrenia, personally appreciate this post. You’d be surprised how often I’ve been told that I’m “not worthy to be alive.” Depression is hellish enough, but when you’ve got Schizophrenia on top of that - you go past the “annoying” or “weak” category, and pretty soon you find yourself being categorized by other people as “psycho” or “dangerous.” And then you find yourself almost completely alone. I only wish society would change how they deal with the mentally ill. Mental illness is no different than any other physical ailment (Cancer, Asthma, Diabetes etc). It is an unwanted, exhausting sickness that plagues you and your life and you have no control over it. You just try to manage with it, as best as you can, and trust me it doesn’t help when people villainize you for it.

Mental illness is a physical illness that takes place in the mind.

End of story.

The only woman soldier enlisted in the British Army managed the feat by passing herself off as a man.  Dorothy Lawrence, a 20-year-old ambitious journalist, joined in 1915 the B.E.F. Tunnelling Company using the alias Denis Smith, aided by some sympathetic men.  She gave herself in after only 10 days worried about the safety of these men and had to endure an absurd interrogatory, as the authorities assumed she was a ‘camp follower’, that is to say, a prostitute, a term she misunderstood.

The prisoner defiantly stares down Heinrich Himmler, Hitler’s right-hand-man, who was responsible for the Holocaust. Greasley’s confrontation with Himmler took place during an inspection of the camp he was confined to. The inmates were ordered to remain seated, but Greasley refused. Horace Greasley also escaped the death camp, but sneaked back in to rescue a German woman whom he had fallen in love with.

this is amazing

Wait it gets better, he escaped from the camp 200 times to meet with the woman he was in love with and returned after every time because there was no other place to go to. He also wrote an autobiography omfg this dude is seriously awesome

 A great aviator. My Grandfather actually met Charles Lindbergh while working at an airplane parts dealer/airport in Connecticut during the 1920s and 30s. Very cool.

The great William A. Wellman. The director who brought us masterful films such as but not limited to; Wings (1927), The Public Enemy (1931), A Star is Born (1937), and The Ox-Bow Incident (1943). With these and many others of Wellman’s films, he has etched his place firmly in the history of cinema.

endless list of films with gorgeous visuals → The Prince of Egypt (1998)

"Moses, hear what I say. I’ve been a slave all my life. And God has never answered my prayers until now. God saved you from the river, He saved you in all your wanderings, and even now, he saves you from the wrath of Pharaoh. God will not abandon you. So don’t you abandon us."

My absolute favorite animated film. Not only does it have gorgeous visuals, but it has some fantastic music scoring as well.

As middle class mass entertainments gained increasing popularity in the late nineteenth century, so did the impetus to instruct this new audience in the ways of appropriate public behavior. By the time the motion picture industry had achieved full flower in the 1910s, however, etiquette announcements like these were used mainly for their entertainment value.
