"Because the world is so full of death and horror, I try again and again to console my heart and pick the flowers that grow in the midst of hell."
Hermann Hesse, Narcissus and Goldmund (via adichotomyof)
"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
~ Nelson Mandela
