“There is no hell after death to which your God can condemn us. We create our own hell here on earth by making the wrong choices. Life is not something that "happens to us" , it's something that we create and shape ourselves......”
Karin Alvtegen, Shadow

“Life. A tiny moment between two eternities”
Karin Alvtegen

“Perhaps it was the same with freedom as it was with everything else that was taken for granted. Only with its loss could you gain the ability to really understand its real value.”
Karin Alvtegen
