A

Piece of

me

Most probably you won't get to know me. Most probably that's not a bad thing or o good one either. I'm not an exceptional human being but every day I try to be by bending my backbone as little as possible. So here are some vertebrae:

The good

"You think you're merely sendin' this splendid foot-soldier back home to Oregon with his tail between his legs, but I say you are executin' his SOUL!! And why?! Because he's not a Baird man! Baird men, ya hurt this boy, you're going to be Baird Bums, the lot of ya. And Harry, Jimmy, Trent, wherever you are out there, FUCK YOU, too!" - Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade

“Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” ― Thomas A. Edison

"Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted." - John Lennon

"There is nothing so fatal to character as half finished tasks." - David Lloyd George

"Life is this _ I like this -" - Harvey Specter

The bad

"It takes so little to turn real beauty into a joke." - Ben Diamond

A platitude is a trite, meaningless, biased, or prosaic statement, often presented as if it were significant and original. The word derives from plat, the French word for "flat." Whether any given statement is considered to have meaning is highly subjective, so platitude is often—but not always—used as a pejorative term to describe seemingly profound statements that a certain person views as unoriginal or shallow. Examples of statements which could be considered platitudes could be "The power of friendship", "Go with the flow", "Everything happens for a reason", "It is what it is!", "This too shall pass.", "We need to do what we can do.", and "I know! Right?."

The ugly

"It's hard not to hate. People, things, institutions. When they break your spirit and take pleasure in watching you bleed...hate is the only feeling that makes sense. But I know what hate does to a man. Tears him apart. Turns him into something he's not. Something he promised himself he'd never become. That's what I need to tell you.To let you know how hard I'm trying not to cave under the weight of all the awful things I feel in my heart. Sometimes my life feels like a deadly balancing act. What I feel slamming up against what I should do. Impulsive reactions racing to solutions, miles ahead of my brain. When I look at my day, I realize that most of it was spent cleaning up the damage of the day before. In that life, I have no future. All I have is distraction and remorse. I buried my best friend three days ago, and as cliché as this sounds, I left a part of me in that box. A part I barely knew. A part I'll never see again. Every day is a new box, boys. You open it, you take a look at what's inside. You're the one who determines if it's a gift or a coffin." - Jax Teller
