    A.J. Darkholme

    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

    A.J. Darkholme
    “Like tiny gods, all that we say and do holds a power so great that any one of us in any given moment can be responsible for the birth of a new civilization or the collapse of our own.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #3
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Without purpose and meaning in our lives, we banish ourselves to wander this plane of existence with self-destructive tendencies until the bell tolls and our breath capsizes in our lungs, snatching our chance to redeem ourselves forever.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #5
    A.J. Darkholme
    “We are but cells living in a much larger organism, however, this does not make our existence less significant – for an organism without cells is no organism at all. We define it; we make it what it is. We are responsible for its health, its functionality, and above all, its purpose. A lone cell can restore the others, or a lone cell can spread a plague.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #6
    A.J. Darkholme

    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #7
    A.J. Darkholme
    “What seems like a flaw is merely our higher consciousness telling us we're not looking at it in the right light yet.”

  • #8
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Though there is much we still want, there is much we already have, and that means we have much to lose as well. It’s that potential loss that can keep us bound so tightly that we never reach our biggest dreams, because the biggest dreams require the most risk.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #9
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Time spent worrying - about anything - provides no emotional or physical benefit to us; such things only weaken us for the fights we must endure in our lives.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #10
    A.J. Darkholme
    “When you give people a choice, they believe they have power.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #11
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Perspective alone can make an experience positive or negative, but regardless of which you let it become, it can only have as much power over your outlook on life as you give it.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #12
    A.J. Darkholme

    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #14
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Presenting a humble façade gains trust; flattery appeals to ego; combine the two to gain an ego-based trust within someone, and you will find in your hands a judgement clouding tool second only to love.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #15
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Gaining satisfaction through accomplishments is and will always be a slippery slope, because there will come a time when you realize you have accomplished all that is within your power to accomplish in the realm of good, and will have nowhere else to turn but to the realms of greed and powerlust to find the satisfaction you crave.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #16
    A.J. Darkholme
    “We are united by something greater and more valuable than our beliefs alone: the freedom to have those beliefs, and believe what we want without persecution - we must protect that at all costs.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #17
    A.J. Darkholme
    “The ignorance of the world often makes people believe that life should be black and white – that you must choose sides – and so the world of colourful gradients goes unadmired.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #18
    A.J. Darkholme
    “The most inefficient and self-harming thing a person can do is go out looking for love. Let it find you when the time is right and you're out doing what you love to do. Only then will you find it in its truest form.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #19
    A.J. Darkholme
    “The most fulfilling adventures happen when you start your journey without knowing where you’re going, because only then are you free to experience the unexpected detours you’re meant to take.”

  • #20
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Life is what you make it and legacy is what you leave it. Stop trying to be perfect, stop waiting for perfection to find you, and start making your environment a product of you instead of the other way around.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #21
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Why spend your life working on defense when no defense can be made truly impenetrable? Take the offensive – learn the vulnerabilities of the world around you and be the change you wish to see rather than living in constant fear of what may happen to you instead.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #22
    A.J. Darkholme
    “It’s not about being ready or feeling prepared all the time; sometimes you just have to do what you know you have to do. And when you do – you will always see that you’re more ready and more prepared than you realize. Never doubt yourself or you may never do anything of significance.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #23
    A.J. Darkholme
    “People are more willing to change based on their perceived insecurities than by an attack on their beliefs.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #24
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Our emotions hold more power over us than blade or poison alike. To embrace freely the entire spectrum of our emotions is to allow a multitude of Trojan horses containing hidden emotional poisons to circumvent the walls of rationalization – walls we need to protect our trust, confidence, understanding, and self-control.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #25
    A.J. Darkholme
    “The weakest link in any chain of security is not the technology itself, but the person operating it; iron gates have no compassion to appeal to, nor fears to exploit, nor insecurities to use to one’s advantage. They are, however, operated by us – by beings of unlimited vulnerability and limited energy. Why waste time brute-forcing what can be easily circumvented by a clever façade and a crimson tongue?”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #26
    A.J. Darkholme
    “[If you] give into your [emotional] illusions, and you will find yourself lost in a maze with no exits, nor entrances, but winding paths that lead you in circles so many times that you grow familiar and comfortable with the very place you shouldn't be in.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #27
    A.J. Darkholme
    “They say you can’t change the past despite the fact it never stops changing you – but that doesn't mean we have to sit back and take it. It may change us, but we have ultimate control over how we let it.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #28
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Your biggest dreams can become reality, not by brute-forcing the end-goal, but breaking it down into smaller, more manageable parts. If your goal takes years, breaking it down into months and days will let you improve your lot little bits at a time.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #29
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Our knees get dusty from time to time, but when they touch the ground, we must never allow the dust to convince us that our submission in that moment is the acceptance of our defeat for an entire lifetime.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

  • #30
    A.J. Darkholme
    “Greatness is not a gift that one can give to another, but rather is a thief's relic that we must take for ourselves.”
    A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar
