It had flaws, but what does that matter when it comes to matters of the heart? We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because. That’s as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind (aka one of the best books evar)

Scientists have yet to discover the function of the unusual bony crest on top of a cassowary’s head. Also called a casque, the headpiece may help amplify the bird’s booming low-frequency sound. It may also be used as head protection as the bird navigates through underbrush and battles with conspecifics. Or it might merely be a sign of sexual maturity.
