Smut, romance, and moral ambiguity.
23:36"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: ‘It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to.’" — Jim Jarmusch

Senator John F. Kennedy, 1960
Campaign trail in rural Wisconsin 
Not only was Kennedy young, he inspired the nation’s young people, too, like this crowd that greeted him on the campaign trail in rural Wisconsin and thousands of others who now jumped at the chance to work for the government. “Young people running for office explained that Kennedy had made politics respectable.” wrote historian and Kennedy aide Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. “What perhaps they more often meant was that he had made it rational.”
