She wondered when her daughter would realize that for the most part, people weren’t that different. Young and old, male or female, pretty much everyone she knew wanted the same things: They wanted to feel peace in their hearts, they wanted a life without turmoil, they wanted to be happy. The difference, she thought, was that most young people seemed to think that those things lay somewhere in the future. While most older people believed that they lay in the past.
Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.
The less I needed, the better I felt.
I was born to catch dragons in their dens and pick flowers. To tell tales and laugh away the morning. To drift and dream like a lazy stream and walk barefoot across sunshine days.

Many films diminish us. They cheapen us, masturbate our senses, hammer us with shabby thrills, diminish the value of life. Some few films evoke the wonderment of life’s experience, and those I consider a form of prayer. Not prayer “to” anyone or anything, but prayer “about” everyone and everything. I believe prayer that makes requests is pointless. What will be, will be. But I value the kind of prayer when you stand at the edge of the sea, or beneath a tree, or smell a flower, or love someone, or do a good thing. Those prayers validate existence and snatch it away from meaningless routine.

Quoting a friend ” Honesty is sometimes the most selfless act we can do” and i agree with that. When we lie, who are we REALLY protecting? Many times we want to avoid confrontation or don´t want to sit through an uncomfortable situation and opt for a more convenient path. But if it were me receiving the news, i would want to hear the truth and it might hurt terribly, but that´s my problem and my responsibility to try and work on myself to find a way to accept this truth.
