"If someone remarks: “What an excellent man you are!” and this pleases you more than his saying, “What a bad man you are!” know that you are still a bad man."
Dustin E. Papow
“Camelia and Quince”
“Camelia and Mockingbirds are symbols of Innocence.
Quince is a symbol of Temptation.
A White Stag is a symbol of something dreamed of and sought after.”
“You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation… and that is called loving.
Well, then, love your suffering.
Do not resist it, do not flee from it.
It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else.”
- Herman Hesse
