Let them misunderstand you.

don’t you dare doubt your worth
or the beauty of your truth.
Just keep on shining like you do.”

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don't show a friend your gift, or your bag of money if you still want to maintain your relationship, but if nay, go on, and all you'll see is hate and jealousy, and you'll fight with him in the street like a dog and all you'll feel is regret.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

“I am no theologian, and do not have the answers to these questions, and one of the reasons I enjoy the animals on the farm so much is that they don't think about their pain, or question it, they accept it and endure it, true stoics. I have never heard a donkey or cow whine (although I guess dogs do).
I told my friend this: pain, like joy, is a gift. It challenges us, tests, defines us, causes us to grow, empathize, and also, to appreciate its absence. If nothing else, it sharpens the experience of joy. The minute something happens to me that causes pain, I start wondering how I can respond to it, what I can learn from it, what it has taught me or shown me about myself. This doesn't make it hurt any less, but it puts it, for me, on a more manageable level. I don't know if there is a God, or if he causes me or anybody else to hurt, or if he could stop pain. I try to accept it and live beyond it. I think the animals have taught me that.
The Problem of Pain is that it exists, and is ubiquitous. The Challenge of Pain is how we respond to it.”
Jon Katz

Ransom Riggs
“Maybe I could use a little metal on the inside, I thought. If I'd kept my heart better armored, where would I be now?
Easy—I’d be at home, medicating myself into a monotone. Drowning my sorrows in video games. Working shifts at Smart Aid. Dying inside, day by day, from regret.”
Ransom Riggs, Hollow City

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Keep your problems to yourself, if its too much for you, kill it slowly till it disappears from your life.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Hubert Selby Jr.
“There was a problem and that was that. Why didnt make a fiddlers fuck.”
Hubert Selby Jr., Requiem for a Dream

Marko Šelić
“Tu, mili, tu je sav problem. Ljudi uvek govore da nemaju kontrolu nad ponašanjem, ali to nije istina. Ono nad čime nemaš kontrolu je emocija. I nisi slab zato što osećaš ono što osećaš. Slab si u delu gde dopuštaš sebi verovanje da je tvoje ponašanje neizbežno i opravdano. Ako ti sam nećeš da prihvatiš koliko si razoren, da li je sasvim pošteno da tražiš od drugih da to prihvate?”
Marko Šelić, Rubikova stolica
