Favorite TweetStuff (08/10/12) ~ Enjoy! ~

Busy week, lots of favorites to choose from! Whether it’s from the Olympics or from Mars, it’s inspiring, beautiful, and uplifting. Enjoy!


@Quotes4Writers “We do not write in order to be understood, we write in order to understand.” ~ Cecil Day-Lewis

@DrKathleenYoung Gabby Douglas responds to hair comments: ‘I just made history, and people are focused on my hair?’
[SEO: Gabby Douglas (Olympic gold medalist in gymnastics team and all-around individual) is a force to be reckoned with! She said she’s not changing her hair, so basically, deal with it. An excellent role model for teenaged girls everywhere who are bombarded with daily messages about everything that is superficial about them.]

@800273TALK “I don’t believe you have to be better than everybody else…be better than you ever thought you could be.” ~ Ken Venturi


The Curiosity Has Landed


@MarsCuriosity Zoom. Enhance. This “CSI: Mars” video shows evidence of my landing strewn across Gale crater
[SEO: Against some pretty strong odds, the Mars Curiosity Rover was successfully deployed on August 5th. Very cool! And the Rover tweets, sometimes with a bit of snark!]


@pourmecoffee “Would be exciting for Curiosity to unfurl enormous pirate flag and blast Wagner. Doubt it will happen.”

@Gizmodo This image of MSL Curiosity descent taken from space is unbelievable cool. Incredible pic!
[SEO: “The HiRISE camera NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter was able to spot Curiosity as it was descending on the surface of the red planet. You can clearly see the capsule and the deployed supersonic parachute.”]

@MarsCuriosity It once was one small step… now it’s six big wheels. Here’s a look at one of them on the soil of Mars.

@MarsCuriosity No photo or it didn’t happen? Well lookee here, I’m casting a shadow on the ground in Mars’ Gale crater.


The Rest of the Best


@LillyAnn Beautiful :) Incredible Stage! A library of gigantic fairy tale books at the Tomorrowland Festival in Belgium

@HealthyPlace “One of the definitions of sanity is the ability to tell real from unreal. Soon we’ll need a new definition.” ~ Alvin Toffler, futurist

@Quotes4Writers “I write because I’m afraid to say some things out loud.” ~ Gordon Atkinson

@Alyssa_Milano Full moon rises through Olympic Rings (via @reuters)
[SEO: What a shot!]

@Quotes4Writers “The beautiful part of writing is that you don’t have to get it right the first time unlike, say, brain surgery.” ~ Robert Cormier
