“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”—Neil Gaiman (via bookmania)
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love.”—Nelson Mandela (via zeitgeistmovement)
Once upon a time there was a word named Dear. Dear was lovely and sophisticated and made you feel special. But then one day a young and spirited word named Hi came along. Hi was fun and frisky. Hi instantly made you feel like best friends. And just like that, Dear was old and boring.
