“In Italy for thirty years under the Borgia’s they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love; they had five hundred years of democracy and peace and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock…”—My friend Aaron
“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again…who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end, the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly.”—Theodore Roosevelt
“Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth: the Blessed Sacrament….There you will find romance, glory, honor, fidelity, and the true way of all your loves upon earth, and more than that: death: by the divine paradox, that which ends life, and demands the surrender of all, and yet by the taste (or foretaste) of which alone can what you seek in your earthly relationships (love, faithfulness, joy) be maintained, or take on that complexion of reality, of eternal endurance, that every man’s heart desires.”—J.R.R. Tolkien
(original title Is there like a bitch/troll nation these girls are all from?)
Wow. Just wow. This makes me tear up with the cruelty of it. Yes I do think there’s a troll nation that these people come from, and I pray that one day these girls open their eyes and see that they are
a) not perfect
b) not the center of the universe
c) hated by all for being like this
d) needing a GIGANTIC dose of humility(and maybe a slap in the face)
My biggest regret ever is being a Christian most of my life. Now that I don’t live with my parents any more, I can truly break free from the religion. It was nothing but a bunch of closed-mindedness and bullshit arbitrary rules and “morals.” Despite being a good person,…
This makes me really sad.
No offense to inpuredecit meant at all, but it just makes me sad.
I’m heartily sorry for the “Christians” that were around her for not showing her what Christianity is truly about: Love.
