This is Why The Good Have as Many Enemies as the Wicked

The wicked envy and hate; it is their way of admiring.
**Victor Hugo

How You Treat Them Shows How You View Yourself

“Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.”

**Dennis Prager

The True Relationship

“A person isn’t who they are during the last conversation you had with them – they’re who they’ve been throughout your whole relationship.”

**Rainer Maria Rilke

Except when it doesnt, then you know you have a problem

Once we know of atrocities we cannot remain silent, and knowledge inevitably leads to an urge to protect the innocent.
**Azar Nafisi

Remember the Virtues

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

**Mother Teresa

Depends on the Second Face. . . -_-

“If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?”

**Abraham Lincoln

Or Travel Alone, as the Case Might Be

The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.
**Johann Wolfgang van Goethe

I’ve Never Heard That Concept of “Jealousy” Before

“Jealousy is both reasonable and belongs to reasonable men, while envy is base and belongs to the base, for the one makes himself get good things by jealousy, while the other does not allow his neighbour to have them through envy.”

**Aristotle

Finding Your Dreams Here and Now

Some people think that a place can save them. Like if they could just be somewhere else, their lives would be totally different. They could finally be the people they always wanted to be. But to me, a place is just a place. If you really want things to change, you can make them change no matter where you are.

**Hannah Harrington

Dig In to Your History

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.”

**Marcus Garvey
