Quote #8

“Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.” – Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

This quote resonates with me, and I can tell, without doubt, that the same has happened with the portion of readers of this book that have lost a beloved one. The life filled (seems even suffocating at times) with the absence of their being is extremely painful, which will always remain as such regardless of the measures the survivor or his/her friends take to alleviate the grief. The amount of happiness and tranquility once enjoyed with the lost beloved will neither be returned nor available again for the mourner. However, it is entirely dependent on the mindset of the survivor to either continue leading his or her life with their lost one’s memories acting as a means of survival or to drown in those memories. Not only is it dependent upon the survivor but also those who surround him or her. Being surrounded by a pleasant society certainly helps in reducing, if not entirely eradicating, the grief. This revelation regarding spending one’s time surrounded by family and friends after the loss of a beloved person comes not from experience, but lack thereof.

Quote #7

Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. – Lao Tzu

So true, isn’t it? Some of us are just never content with what we have. We are always looking for new stuff AND people. I am not saying that we should not get new things or even develop relationships with new people. What I mean is that we tend to go after “new” people and materials while ignoring the ones we already have. We forget that they even exist. And when you lose them (referring to both materials and people), that is when you actually realize their value. By then, it is too late!! There is nothing that you could do but regret the times that you ignored them either intentionally or unintentionally. And when we actually do get new things or people, our happiness does not even last that long!! This is so sad! I would love to elaborate on this topic a little more but I have to call it a day. I have got a volunteering event to attend tomorrow morning.

Good night and Good morning, peeps!

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

~ Rhett Butler in Gone With the Wind (1939)

I fell in love with this movie the very first time I saw it in 2012. I don’t think I would have come across this if it wasn’t for my history teacher, who made us watch it and write an essay on it. I am glad  I followed my professor’s instruction at least once 😉 Something good came out of it.
