When is a monster not a monster?
Oh, when you love it.
There were people who went to sleep last night,
poor and rich and white and black,
but they will never wake again.
And those dead folks would give anything at all
for just five minutes of this weather
or ten minutes of plowing.
So you watch yourself about complaining.
What you’re supposed to do
when you don’t like a thing is change it.
If you can’t change it,
change the way you think about it.
If the world is divided into seeing and not seeing, Marya thought, I shall always choose to see.Deathless, Catherynne M. Valente
As rain falls equally on the just and the unjust, do not burden your heart with judgements but rain your kindness equally on all.Buddha (via purplebuddhaproject)
