words i lived through and believe in

Some lessons are only delivered in the form of pain.
Even a falling star still shines.
The star shines for everyone in the world, but in reality, it itself is surrounded in darkness.
Live creatively. Create life. These are two ways to make a better world.
Telling someone who’s crying not to cry is the same as telling someone who’s falling not to fall.
It didn’t rain for you, maybe, but it always rains for me. The sky shatters and rains shards of glass.
I’m afraid I’ll be a book that no one reads. Music that no one listens to anymore. I’m afraid I’ll be abandoned like a movie playing in an empty theater.
Cowards, I believe, are people who are afraid to embrace what they want or need in a natural, honest way.
I’m sorry that I’m both your umbrella and the rain.
My heart was closed. Cold.
I was self-conscious and cynical.
When the face in the mirror doesn’t please you, turn it into a canvas.
What is nothing to you, can be love to me.
When I stop at a stop sign, I don’t think about the distance I’ve crossed. I just wish I never had to stop.
To be strong is to understand weakness. To be weak is to have fears. To have fears is to have something precious to you. To have something precious to you is to be strong.
You don’t wanna know the sinner.
You don’t wanna know the killer. Because it’s you. 
Television is stalling evolution.
Medication is stalling evolution.
Evolution is stalling revolution. Evolution, revolution.
Collaboration, the start of revolution.
My decision, the start of revolution.
Revolution, the start of evolution. Revolution, evolution.
The way up is a staircase.
The way down is a cliff.
I always make sure there’s an opening in my room — an inch at the door, or maybe even at the window. My grandmother taught me that if one dies during sleep, the soul needs an exit, or it will be forever trapped in the room.
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
