I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that!
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
And on nights like this one, we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to al Qaeda's terror: Justice has been done.20110

Before you can grow up, you must fall in love 3 times.
Once you must fall in love with your best friend, ruining your friendship forever.
This will teach you who your true friends are, and the fine line between friendship and more.
Once you must fall in love with someone you believe to be perfect.
You will learn that no one is perfect, and that you should never be treated as any less than you deserve.
And once you must fall in love with someone that is exactly like you.
This will teach you about who you are, and who you want to be.
And when you're though with all that, you learn that the people who care about you the most are the ones that you hurt, and the ones that hurt you are the ones that you needed the most.
But most of all, you learn that love is only a concept and is not something that can be defined, it is different to each person that experiences it. And you will learn to respect each and every person on this earth, knowing that everyone only wants to be loved.

When I was one-and-twenty
I heard a wise man say,
'Give crowns and pounds and guineas
But not your heart away;
Give pearls away and rubies
But keep your fancy free."
But I was one-and-twenty,
No use to talk to me.
When I was one-and-twenty
I heard him say again,
'The heart out of the bosom
Was never given in vain;
'Tis paid with sighs a plenty
And sold for endless rue."
And I am two-and-twenty,
And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul
And sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all
I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place, when they can fly anywhere on earth...
...then I ask myself the same question.
