more things to think about

-our convictions and our friends are all we have to get us
through our times of trouble. but they're all we need.
-between a man and woman in love, no lie is small or
meaningless.
-there is a grace in the natural order of things that is
more important than our desires.
-the selfless love that we give to others, to the point of
being willing to sacrifice our lives for them is all the
proof i need that human beings are not mere animals of self-
interest; we carry within us a divine spark, and if we
choose to recognize it, our lives have dignity, meaning,
hope.
-nothing's hopeless in this world unless we want it to be.
-you can handle anything, including the end of the world as
we know it, if at your side are friends with the proper
attitude.
-the apparent effort that he had taken to mock me was a
sign of true friendship.
-there are two faces to the coin of a rich imagination.
-friendship requires us to venture off the map of the known
world.
-ghosts can't hurt you unless you yourself give them the
power to harm you, unless you feed their substance with
your fear.
-there's a natural toughness in most kids that we seldom
acknowledge, because we usually view childhood through the
glasses of nostalgia and sentimentality.
-all the light i need is here, with those i love, those
that shine.

final thought: i think i'm misremembering, or maybe just
getting my waking nightmares confused. but i think i'm
sustaining a brain bruise from pondering paradoxes. now be
a good idiot and turn out your light.
