“It’s not the face, but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice, but what you say. It’s not how you look in that body, but the things you do with it. You are beautiful.”

"Perhaps that is because you mistake death for justice, and that they are not the same thing at all."
What is it that they say? "Do not judge a book by it's cover." They also said that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Well, who cares about what they say? Kidding! (Or am I?) Nope, not really. You definitely should ignore what they say and just do your own thing. And if... Continue Reading →
