"No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
Piercing pain. Stolen checks. Feeling lost. What a great start to the holiday season.
Also I saw one of my Christmas presents on accident and I feel so dumb.
"Be kind to yourself while blooming. I know sometimes it feels like your soul doesn’t always fit. It’s all a part of the process."

Reminds me of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
"I grew up on a rice farm in Guyana. We didn’t have running water or electricity, or anything like that. I didn’t come to America until I was 14. My friend has been struggling lately because she can’t get a job she wants, even though she’s really talented. She’s lived in New York her whole life and hasn’t travelled very much, and she said to me: ‘I don’t understand why anyone would want to immigrate to America.’ I told her:
“Trust me— if there’s a heaven, this is it.’”
Just in time for Thanksgiving. People really need to stop and realize how much they have to be grateful for.
"Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different."
"So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them."
WE HAD FLOWERS ON THE TABLE EARLIER. HAD.
Is this real life??? I wants it.
"Don’t talk to yourself in such a way that if you did so to a friend, it would end your friendship.
If you had a friend dealing with the same things, you wouldn’t berate that person, say, ‘You’re not working hard enough,’ ‘You suck,’ or ‘You’re not as good as [whomever].’ You’d offer your friend encouragement, you’d try to point out all the things your friend did right, and how much progress your friend had made.
You should do no less for yourself.
Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening.
