“I don’t like the terms “good person” or “bad person” because it’s impossible to be entirely good to everyone or entirely bad to everyone. To some, you are a good person, while to others, you are a bad person.”—
Armin Arlelt (Shingeki No Kyojin)
The book Where Angels Fear to Tread by E. M. Forster gets at this quite a bit. It’s a good short read. So does The Looming Tower, but that’s a good loooong read (very good).
I don’t know about you but my favorite English exercise was writing prompts and with today’s technology bringing together huge amounts people with an equal amount of ideas, we get prompts that are out of this world! This Tumblr is simply titled ‘Writing Prompts’ and is a crazy collection of ideas, statements and questions that are meant to get you thinking and, more importantly, writing.
My favorite so far: “Tell this story: There it was, finally. Our island. Our very own island. It looked beautiful above the waves of fog, but there was still one question to be answered: why had they sold it to us for only five dollars?”
What a great prompt! Check that one out and more here at the link below! Happy thoughtful/reflective Tuesday!
“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”—The Little Prince (via araeni)
