Give Your Everything

"It is no reason for me to boast, for necessity is laid upon me."

There are two questions a man must ask himself: The first is Where am I going? and the second is Who will go with me? If you ever get these questions in the wrong order you are in trouble.

Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them.

This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to realize it’s going to be a
long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time.

Let us not underestimate how hard it is to be compassionate. Compassion is hard because it requires the inner disposition to go with others to place where they are weak, vulnerable, lonely, and broken. But this is not our spontaneous response to suffering. What we desire most is to do away with suffering by fleeing from it or finding a quick cure for it.

他人の心を、それも大事な相手の心を無意味に傷つけるというのはとても嫌なものだった。

javabomb:

OHHHHH MYYYYY GOOOOOOOOOD

I know my next project!!!

You’re a drug I can’t quit;
a memory I can’t outrun.
No matter how I stumble away from you,
when I glance back you’re always smiling.

Half a step behind me,
never quite leaving my sight.
Tell me how you’re supposed to leave my mind
when things are like this?

I must be an addict
the way I shiver, the way I shake
the way I simply fall to pieces
when you are not here.

Day after day I slip on my mask,
ready to perform once more for the world to see.
But what are the chances that said mask
is slowly but surely falling apart?

Already the cracks are already starting to show.
