“Police officers are well known for their aggressive behaviors, search "Police Officer Angry Aggression Theory". I can speak from personal experience that they do cover up for each other and target individuals that they have a vendetta on. Police Internal Affairs is just an extension of the cover up machine, they uphold very few complaints.”
Steven Magee

Tarun Shanker
“Do you act the same in society as you do in private? Do you speak to everyone the same way?"

"No, no quite," I replied, wincing.

"Of course. No one does. You put on one disguise for society. You put on another for your sister. For your parents. Your customer the other night."

I felt my face warm. "But what about in private? Anyone can be themselves then without--ah! Ow!-- without putting on an act."

“We do not remain the same each minute to the next. Every word you hear, every sight you see, every smell, every thought you have, every moment—it all changes you. We keep putting on mask after mask, layers over layers. That’s how one grows.”
Tarun Shanker, These Vicious Masks

“A month ago it would have been my dream just to be in his bedroom watching a movie, but now it’s torture because I want so much more. It’s like my entire conscious state has been reduced to this toxic blend of hope and uncertainty. I hate that I have to act cool and almost pretend I don’t like him when in fact I do, because, God forbid, I come across as desperate for attention or a little clingy, which everyone should know are perfectly natural human behaviors, after all. Ugh!”
Daria Snadowsky, Anatomy of a Boyfriend

جلجامش نبيل, Gilgamesh Nabeel
“كان خوفاً يهزم خوفاً من نوع آخر، خوف من خطر محقّق يهزم خوفاً من خطر محتمل. حياتنا تدور في هذه النسبية التي تحكم كل شيء، كل علاقاتنا وأفكارنا وقراراتنا وتصرّفاتنا، سواء أدركنا ذلك أو لم ندرك.”
جلجامش نبيل, Gilgamesh Nabeel, صراع الأقنعة

“The things you don't like about yourself don't make you any less acceptable. Everyone has things they don't like about themselves. No one is perfect. Learn to work with yourself and not against yourself. Learn to work with the parts of yourself you don't like as much. Try to direct your behavior so that it can serve you somehow. Awareness and honesty are great tools for learning to work with yourself. Remember, self-criticism is not helpful if it's not constructive. You can examine your behaviors in an effort to change them, but leave out the judgment.”
Akiroq Brost

Lynne Tillman

Lynne Tillman, Men and Apparitions

you're working.
While they're talking about what they're going to do, you're already doing it.
While they're making resolutions, you're setting behaviors.”
