    "Beauty without expression is boring."

    -Ralph Waldo Emerson
    "To live life, you need problems.
    If you get everything you want the minute you want it,

    Be careful what you look for, you may find it.
    Fate is a self-fulfilling prophecy with amnesia
    It's not the colour of your skin that matters, it's the thickness of it
    Before you can stop the worm wriggling, you have to stop the bird pecking
    Want makes us greedy, need makes us humble
    Just An Ordinary Bloke, Doing Ordinary Things, In An Extraordinary World.

    The only one who can heal you is you.

    I have it tattoed on my arm because I'm that kind of person.
    τέτλαθι δή, κραδίη, καὶ κύντερον ἄλλο ποτ᾿ἔτλης (Odyssey, 20.18 )
    "Be strong, my heart, because I've endured much worse than this".
    In English is not really as beautiful: the two verbs in Greek are different form of the same verb, one that means "to endure pain". But it's a verb that doesn't exist in the present tense: only in the perfect and the aorist. Since the present has the notion of continuity, it's like the verb wants to express that pain is only a momentary condition, that has to be endured in the moment, but will eventually pass. It's in the aorist. It's meant to be gone eventually.

    It makes me cry just to think about it honestly

    "Be strong, my heart, because I've endured much worse than this".

    How about this to be our motto for the present time? I surely have.
    Who Is Blind?
    The one who is unable to perceive another world.
    Who is dumb?
    The one who cannot speak a kind and loving word at the right moment.
    Who is poor?
    The one who is plagued by too many desires.
    Who is rich?
    The one whose heart is contented.
