A Visual Dictionary of Philosophy: Major Schools of Thought in Minimalist Geometric Graphics by Maria Popova A charming exercise in metaphorical thinking and symbolic representation. Rodin believed that his art was about removing the stone not part of the sculpture to reveal the essence of his artistic vision. Let’s Go Exploring Our Favorite Calvin And Hobbes GIFs Bill Watterson's Calvin And Hobbes comic strip ran from 1985 to 1995 and helped define our childhoods. Now a single-serving Tumblr called "Calvin And Hobbes GIFs" is giving us all the feels by animating classic panels of the comic (in the event an animated look at the comic wasn't enough for you).
