1) What is more pointless than having wings and not being able to fly? (from AirTv)
2) Being hurt inevitably breeds feelings of hatred towards your attacker. But when we hurt others, we have to deal with their hatred for us, and our own feelings of guilt... But knowing what it feels to be hurt is exactly why we try to be kind to others... That's what makes us human. (from Naruto)
3) If you think of someone's good qualities as the plum on the rice ball, it's as if their qualities are stuck to their back. People around the world are like rice balls. Everyone has a plum with different shape and color and flavor. But because it's stuck on their back, they cannot see it...
...Maybe the reason people get jealous of each other is because they can see so clearly the plum on other people's back but not on their own. (from Fruits Basket)
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall he able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38,39)
