Not Your Business

2 Mar

“There was a whole army of people who seemed not to have anything better to do than to try to disrupt her life, and , if they were given the opportunity, to correct the way she had chosen to live it.”

With Maturity Comes Despair

23 Feb

“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”

*Jane Austen

When the Earth Mourns ~ Where is the #Justice?

8 Aug

“Why? Why do only selfish people live, but those with a heart and the righteous die? The heaven have made such a cruel choice. Is there no fairness in this world?”

~ Wei Zheng (Nirvana in Fire)

**I think perhaps it is this sense of Fairness and Justice that separates the good from the bad.  The good know what should be done and do it, regardless of benefit to themselves. The bad see only what they would like to be done, seeing only the benefit to themselves.  The less fairness the world displays, the worse you know things are.
