u think i am walking around the house with a blanket around my shoulders because i am cold, but in actuality it is my cloak and i am on an adventure
Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing.
there are 7 billion people on the planet and you only interact with like a fraction of a fracton of them in your lifetime. imagine how many incredible friendships or relationships you could have but you’ll never meet or get to know those people
People who notice everything but remain silent are to be feared.
Never trust a person who talks to their pets in a normal voice.
I want to be around people that do things. i don't want to be around people that judge and talk about what other people do. I want to be around people that dream and support and do things.
"Could you please hold this for a second?" hands you my problems and runs away
Making something beautiful requires effort and perseverance.
Once you stop wanting something you get it.
One must accept the fact that others don't see what you do.
You are not free until you have no need to impress anybody.
You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep spring from coming.
I want to make beautiful things even if nobody cares.
The sign of intelligence is that you are always wondering. Idiots are always dead sure about everything damn thing they are doing in their life.
The Rape of Nanking by Iris Chang
The Rape of Nanking should be remembered not only for the number of people slaughtered but for the cruel manner in which many met their deaths. Chinese men were used for bayonet practice and in decapitation contests. An estimated 20,000-80,000 Chinese women were raped. Many soldiers went beyond rape to disembowel women, slice off their breasts, nail them alive to walls. Fathers were forced to rape their daughters, and sons their mothers, as other family members watched. Not only did live burials, castration, the carving of organs, and the roasting of people become routine, but more diabolical tortures were practiced, such as hanging people by their tongues on iron hooks or burying people to their waists and watching them get torn apart by German shepherds. So sickening was the spectacle that even the Nazis in the city were horrified, one proclaiming the massacre to be the work of bestial machinery.
