“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

“You and i, we understand each other. look out for yourself and never get hurt right? [worked quite well for me] yeah until the day that it doesn’t. we’re doing this. it might be stupid, it might be crazy, but we’re doing it. so, you can join us, and be a part of something. or you can do what you do best… and be alone.”
Its tiny black nose, its little cushioned black jellybean toes, the halo of silver moonlight hairs on the silky black fur.
