Probably the most inspiring picture ever, I believe it was the 2008 Beijing Games and the guy gave up the race to help another
why doesn’t this have a million notes? this is actually amazing.
no hipster chicks deem it starbucks enough? damn awesome picture
i like this, a lot
love so much true sportsmanship
to work your whole life to get to the Olympics just to throw a race to help another is really inspiring.

You know what’s sad about reading books? It’s that you fall in love with the characters. They grow on you. And as you read, you start to feel what they feel - all of them - you become them. And when you’re done, you’re never the same. Sure you’re still you, you look the same, talk in the same manner, but something in you has changed. Something in the way you think, the way you choose, sometimes, even the things you say may differ. But it all comes down to the state you go to after a nice novel. The after-feeling. It’s amazing, but somehow, you feel left alone by that world you were once in. It’s overwhelming. But it makes you sad. Cause for once you were this, this otherworldly being in… Neverwhere, and then you suddenly have to say goodbye after a few weeks from when you read the last page. When you’ve recovered from that state it’s just… quite sad.
