"Love your life."

—Tom Hiddleston for Cards For Keeps

“’We all have two lives. The second begins when you realise you only have one.’ So I’m not wasting any time. And the thing is, negativity, for my money—they are like clouds that pass across the Sun. They will pass. They’re just feelings. And it’s important not to dwell on it and just move past it.” –Tom Hiddleston

"I love poetry, and I love poetry about love…all of the trimmings have been stripped away, and really great poets have got to the heart of the matter by using very, very few, brilliant words, to make you feel something, which, for most people, is inexpressible.” —Tom Hiddleston

Hi there! I'm not too sure about this, but I vaguely recall a quote that I read where Tom said (and I'm paraphrasing here) that he likes poetry because poems are able to convey emotions, at full impact, just by using carefully selected words. He did say something along the lines of this, right?

This might be the quote nonnie is referring to:

Is this what you were looking for, dear Anon?

'I read this poem often. Once a month at least. In the madness and mayhem of modern life, where every man seems committed to an endless search for approval and esteem of his fellows and peers, no matter what the cost, this poem reminds me of a basic truth: that we are, as we are, “enough.”' he says.

'Most of us are motivated deep down by a sense of insufficiency, a need to be better, stronger, faster; to work harder; to be more committed, more kind, more self-sufficient, more successful. We are driven be a sense that we are not, as we are, 'enough.' But this short poem by Derek Walcott is like a declaration of unconditional love. It's like the embrace of an old friend. We are each of us whole, perfectly imperfect, enough.’
(a/n: sorry for the wait, and if anyone knows exactly which article the anon was referring to, let me know).

Spot on! Thank you, hiddles-is-my-muse. May I put it in a proper pic post?


‘Hank’s life has a tragic arc, but in simple truth, he was a genius: a star that burned twice as bright and lived half as long. It’s a huge role for me and a huge responsibility. I’m going to give it everything I’ve got. I’ve already started singing and playing every day’. —Tom Hiddleston [on I Saw The Light]

Hi Guys! We’re back on the update again. My absence was spent in screenplay writing practice and juggling various projects. Thank you for those who still follow this blog, and welcome those who just arrived!

Now, may I ask about one little thing? If you use the quotes from my blog, I’ll appreciate if you’d give the credit. It took time to look for the quotes, let’s say, two quotes I updated today took 4 hours of work. I hope it doesn’t seem haughty of me to ask….for the sake of quoting, because it takes time just as other kinds of art and work as well :)

Thank you & have fun!

"My instinct is to keep people guessing. I think as an actor your greatest strength is your versatility, I suppose. The blanker the canvas, the easier it is to project the illusion of a character onto it. I think there are many actors who do that very successfully." —Tom Hiddleston

"I’ll tell you something about Chris; I’ve seen the film, he’s absolutely magnificent. Like, he was amazing to work with, so generous and easy-going and he is, he does have some kind of crazy genetics. As in, he’s just a physical specimen. But, in the film, actually, this is what I’d say; he’s able to sell the physicality of the part. When he brings the hammer down on the earth you believe that he can create the thunder, just because he’s so physically impressive." —Tom Hiddleston  [Thor 2011]
