“we wouldn't ask why a rose that grew from the concrete for having damaged petals, in turn, we would all celebrate its tenacity, we would all love its will to reach the sun, well, we are the roses, this is the concrete and these are my damaged petals, dont ask me why, thank god, and ask me how”

It is often during the worst of times that we see the best of humanity–awakening
within the most ordinary of us that which is most sublime. I do not believe that it is circumstance
that produces such greatness any more than it is the canvas that makes the
artist. Adversity merely presents the surface on which we render our souls’ most exacting
likeness. It is in the darkest skies that stars are best seen.

Life isn’t a list of things you do. It’s a constant struggle… ooh, like those waves on that beach. In and out. Each day we try to grab what we need. Some days we get it, some days we don’t, some we lose what we have. But it’s always that give and take, back and forth. Nobody wins forever.
