Rachel | 31 comments “When the time comes to you at which you will be forced at last to utter the speech which has lain at the center of your soul for years, which you have, all that time, idiot-like, been saying over and over, you'll not talk about the joy of words. I saw well why the gods do not speak to us openly, nor let us answer. Till that word can be dug out of us, why should they hear the babble that we think we mean? How can they meet us face to face till we have faces?” ~C.S. Lewis

Francesca (francesca_mae) For the humour... I like to sing this song when I play a dwarf in Dungeons and Dragons. (You just have too...)

'Is there a chorus?'
' "Gold, gold, gold, gold, gold".' said Hwel.
'You left out a "gold" there.”

And.

Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It's learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.

― Veronica Roth, Divergent

message 41: by Lindsey (new)

Lindsey | 2 comments From the book "Little Bee"
- On the girl's brown legs there were many small white scars. I was thinking, Do those scars cover the whole of you, like the stars and the moons on your dress? I thought that would be pretty too, and I ask you right here please to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them. We must see all scars as beauty. Okay? This will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I SURVIVED.
In a few breaths time I will speak some sad words to you. But you must hear them the same way we have agreed to see scars now. Sad words are just another beauty. A sad story means, this story teller is ALIVE. The next thing you know, something fine will happen to her, something marvelous, and then she will turn around and smile. We cannot let ourselves be the people things happen to.
