"The unknown is frightening therefore we want to fend it off. I think this is a great part of violence as well as our destructive urge. Whether we like it or not we all have this urge. This urge is not legitimised by fear alone. We all have a dark side. I’ve often quoted Goethe who said that there is no crime he could not imagine having committed himself. Those were wise words. You only need to be in a trigger situation. I think people are very naive when they talk about what others did. They weren’t in the same situation. I wouldn’t vouch for myself not doing certain acts in certain situations that would mortify me at any other time. I think that’s everybody’s fate. All it takes is to be pushed towards these limits. Then you’ll find out how deep your humanity really goes."
"Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts."
"There’s something in your soul that makes me feel so old
In fact, I think I’ve died about six hundred times
There’s less of me now and more of me then
I’m moving back to the age of men"
"I want to be the kind of person who can do that. Move on and forgive people and be healthy and happy. It seems like an easy thing to do in my head. But it’s not so easy when you try it in real life."
Did you ever just feel so lucky for knowing someone you met online?
Like.. I was one click away from not following you. I was one second away from never even knowing of your existence.
I would never have been this happy.
