- Forgiveness (Abridged)
Something important that's not taught in school - and it should be as a life skill - is forgiveness. The reason being for your sake. When you're upset or offended at somebody and you can't resolve the issue, choosing forgiveness helps you let go of the pain. There's many reasons not to forgive them, because if we do it makes what they did to us ok somehow. But choosing to forgive will remove the anger, the pain justice would ease. It starts the moment you say 'I forgive them.'.
Pierre de Marbeuf
- Et la mer et l'amour
Sea and love both share a bitter bite The sea seizes and love seizes Love scalds us and the sea scalds us For neither are free from tempest might Those who fear the waters should stay within the shore's sight those who fear the pain that love procures should shun the flames when love endures And both shall be safe from found and blight For if water could quench loves dying embers Your love that burns and pains and severs I would douse this fire with the sea of all my tears.
- Born into silence
From a young age, I have always wondered what it's like to be able to hear. The birds chirping, a child's laughter, my mother saying the words "I love you" to me and the car's engine roaring as it passes me in a busy road. Being able to hear was always a mystery, and to this day, it still is.
- Oil Age
Our reliance on oil will not stop, even if the world turned completely to green alternatives. Because petroleum is not limited to fuels and energy production but also used for the manufacturing of various products. It is used in making electronics, furniture, clothes and medical appliances as well as making lubricants and asphalts for our cars and roads.
Melanie Martinez- Cry Baby
You're all on your own and you've lost all your friends. You told yourself that it's not you, it's them. You're one of a kind and no one understands. But those crybaby tears keep coming back again.
- from Animal Farm
I saw a little boy, perhaps ten years old, driving a huge cart-horse along a narrow path, whipping it whenever it tried to turn. It struck me that if only such animals became aware of their strength we should have no power over them, and that men exploit animals in much the same way as the rich exploit the proletariat.
- Credenda from Gift of Acabar (1 of 9)
"Turn away from the crowd and its fruitless pursuit of fame and gold!" Never look back as you close your door against the sorry tumult of greed and ambition. Wipe away your tears of failure and misfortune. Lay aside your heavy load, and rest until your heart is still.
- Writers and Musicians
Writers and musicians are very similar in that the chances of making a life in either field are so infinitesimal. And once you're in, the chances of staying viable are difficult. But there is something incredibly different about performing in front of a live audience, as opposed to sitting at your desk typing.
- Best time to shore fish
On a new moon and full moon you have that day plus another three days after which are the highest tides of that month. Many types of fish like the higher water so fishing on those days can be the most productive.
- "Baton Rouge"
Instead of celebrating the beauty of your soul, we listened to a jackal whose intent was to atone. A deity whose vanity overshadowed your honesty. A lifetime of joy overlooked in order to appease. That time for our last goodbyes was poisoned with the jackal's groveling to his lord of mercy and compassion - the same god that watched you agonize your short life away. On the day that we parted, a beast gave the testimony. There is a fallacy in this testimony.
- "Baton Rouge"
And as if it were that easy to sum up a lifetime of experience; the rich texture, complex and pure. You presented yourself in a way which can only be described as astonishing. And now I dream I can see through your eyes of strength. Your courage flowed with grace and elegance. Your spirit undying, trying hard not to show the agony you nobly endured. On the day that we parted, anger filled my sullen heart.
- Les Misérables
With the exercise of a little care, the nettle could be made useful; it is neglected and it becomes hurtful. It is exterminated. How many men resemble the nettle!" He added with a pause: "Remember this, my friends: there are no such things as bad plants or bad men. There are only bad cultivators.
- Erasure - Fingers and Thumbs
And life is a wonderful thing, when you're humming the words to a love song. Do what you want to do; be who you want to be. When I'm in your arms I'm strong - there's nowhere I'd rather be. We shine for liberty, life and the pursuit of pleasure.
- Xena The Warrior Princess
In a world of ancient Gods, Warlords and Kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power. The passion. The danger. Her courage will change the world.
- Typing Hustle
It has slowly dawned upon me that learning to touch type and trying to increase speed while not compromising on accuracy is a character building pursuit. I will explain. Actually, I will not. I will just say, it is very frustrating in the beginning, but it will be all worth it in the end. I will leave it up to you discover the ups and down, the thrills and irritation of the journey. Keep calm and practice typing.
- The Dark Knight - Joker Interrogation
Their morals, their code; it's a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. You'll see- I'll show you. When the chips are down these, uh, civilized people? They'll eat each other. See I'm not a monster, I'm just ahead of the curve.
- The Kites - Tad Bronicki
Tad, keeping a finger on the globe so he wouldn't lose his place in the Gobi or the Sahara Desert and die of thirst, glanced coldly at his sister. At sixteen, Tad Bronicki seemed to have such knowledge of the world that the only thing left for him to do was add a few small corrections to the planet's history and geography.
