“Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket—safe, dark, motionless, airless—it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”—C. S. Lewis
“This I do know beyond any reasonable doubt. Regardless of what you are doing, if you pump long enough, hard enough and enthusiastically enough, sooner or later the effort will bring forth the reward.”—Zig Ziglar
You know, I feel really rude because you asked me about myself and I never asked you about yourself. But I'm socially awkward so you'll have to excuse this very late realisation.
SO. TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF.
Me, huh? Haha.
I’m newly 22, and have been living in the wrong country all my life. I like the colour green, recently realized I could never teach and am obsessed with counting the hours in which I get to sleep each night. My eyes and hair change colours and I’m french/polish. I was hit by lightning 4 years ago and I didn’t really realize it until a year after it happened.
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch of a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson
