Treat a man as he appears to be and you make him worse. But treat a man as if he already were what he potentially could be, and you make him what he should be.
—Johann Goethe (via majestickhalil)
The impossibly medieval street known as The Shambles in York, North Yorkshire, England. If you want to see it like this (devoid of people, that is) you must arise at 5.30 in the morning on a Tuesday following a bank holiday. There wasn’t one single person out in the whole city. (my photo)
