There is really no such thing as the ‘voiceless’, there is only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard

America was not built by conformists, but by mutineers.

~ Jim Hightower

Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshipping.

Maybe part of growing up is that the people in your life aren’t always going to be there. For better, for worse, people come and go, even the people you look up to most. Sometimes this is a hard fact to face and understand, that those that are here today may not be here tomorrow. Whether it’s through death itself or simply life’s journey. So maybe even though you may lose this person from your life altogether you should cherish this time you have together. So with that I guess I’m glad to say that I miss and love you, but the moments we shared, everything we experienced and the reality of you not being part of my life are all going to be positive life lessons for me. I’m glad you came into my life when you did. I’m sorry for the mistakes I made, but I’m glad I got to make those mistakes with you.

Human beings are works in progress who mistakenly think they’re finished.

If they don’t need you, it’s okay, you do not live for other people.

Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it.
