Favorite Quote:
the mirror only tells half the story, beauty is found on the inside...
love is blind
only the shadow knows
words said in the heat of anger are never from the heart

If we continue with the quote
“An eye for an eye”
And “A tooth for a tooth”
We would all be blind and toothless.
For we must show kindness, compassion, and mercy
Towards each other and to this sinister world.
We have more effect and a bigger impact
If we young people, young creative writers
and artists speak against this old quote.

"Strength does not come from physical capacity, but from an indomitable will."

Powerful. I love it. I believe that if we all choose to be above an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, then we choose greatness.

Why should I be afraid of falling to the ground if its soil was the very thing that blossomed me?

I love the simplicity of what you are saying, but remember this: thoughts are fruitless without words, and words are fruitless without action. If you earnestly want to abolish this quote and what it stands for, be willing to live out what you claim to believe.
