A wise man is superior to any insults which can be put upon him, and the best reply to unseemly behavior is patience and moderation.
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
we do not actually remember true events but rather reconstruct events in our minds based on elements that we have recalled.
Do not confuse the past with the thoughts we have about the past.
Doing a self-portrait is a provocative experience. It takes a great deal of thought. How we think we look to others, or how we think we come across to others, can be quite different from what happens in reality. It’s a matter of how we project ourselves and sometimes ego or need or anxiety gets in the way of — interferes with — that projection. It is considered to be one of the harder experiments, to see if one can capture one’s essence in a way that reflects one’s important aspects that are also seen by others as important.
He’s a lot of things, but he’s not you.
Grimm (wonderful show!)
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart.

If you let a man know your emotions, you give him power over you.
Is it inappropriate for me to admit that I think that I am sexy? It seems sometimes we vilify women who accentuate their sexy, and praise men who do the same… as long as it is in acceptable standards of masculinity. Why is that? Who owns YOUR sexy and did they pay for it or steal it from you?
Tell me how the fuck are we supposed to stay friends, when you got a bunch of feelings you don’t show.
Say hello to the girl that I am!
You’re gonna have to see through my perspective
I need to make mistakes just to learn who I am
And I don’t wanna be so damn protected
There must be another way
Cause I believe in taking chances
But who am I to say
What a girl is to do
God, I need some answers
