“The phrase a leap of faith can carry a connotation of blind acceptance or naïveté on the part of leaper, neither of which is true in the case of Bennington… Logically Bennington College shouldn’t exist. But here we are. Bennington stood at the precipice of conventional wisdom and leapt. And the wisdom of Bennington is the knowledge that there is a space created in between taking off from ground and touching back down and in that space everything is possible.”
-Oceana Wilson, director of the Crossett Library, addressing Bennington’s incoming class at this year’s Convocation.

Happy birthday, Nikola Tesla!
He was a hot hipster and inventor of everything amazing. He invented stuff we STILL can’t figure out.
Sadly, the band named after him is not as awesome.
Word to all. I needed something positive to reblog and this is perfect.
