“Blogging is not writing, it’s graffiti with punctuation.” — Contagion
You don’t understand an antagonist until you understand why he’s a protagonist in his own version of the world.
I used to build dreams about you.
I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.
I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.
Some people look naked when they’re clothed, some people look clothed when they’re naked.
You are so brave and quiet I forget you are suffering.
