I don't never have any trouble in regulating my own conduct, but to keep other folks' straight is what bothers me. ~Josh Billings

"Was it words of mine that sent young out to die?"

William Yates.

He wrote idealistic poetry on war, poems of glory and trimuph. And how dying for your country is a honour.

He said this when he was shocked at the truth of real war when he saw the death and destruction of WWI.

"People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that's bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they're afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they're wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you're letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain."
-Jim Morrison

I have self-esteem, which is pretty amazing - because I’m probably somebody who wouldn’t necessarily have a lot of self-esteem as I am considered a minority. If you’re a woman, if you are a person of color, if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, if you’re a person of size, if you’re a person of intelligence, if you’re a person of integrity, then you are considered a minority in this world. It’s going to be really hard to find messages of self-love and support, anywhere, especially women’s and gay men’s culture. It’s all about how you have to look a certain way or else you’re worthless.
You know when you look in the mirror and you think, "Oh, I’m so fat," "I’m so old," "I’m so ugly," don’t you know that’s not your authentic self? THAT is billions upon billions of dollars of advertising, magazines, movies, billboards – all geared to make you feel shitty about yourself so that you will take your hard-earned money and spend it at the mall on some turn-around cream that doesn’t turn around shit.
When you don’t have self-esteem, you will hesitate before you do anything in your life. You will hesitate to go for the job you really want to go for. You will hesitate to ask for a raise. You will hesitate to call yourself an American. You will hesitate to report a rape. You will hesitate to defend yourself when you are discriminated against because of your race, your sexuality, your size, your gender. You will hesitate to vote. You will hesitate to dream.
For us, to have self-esteem is truly an act of revolution, and our revolution is long overdue.

-Margaret Cho

Please know that I am aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others. -Amelia Earhart (In her last letter to her husband)

Pain is part of being alive, and we need to learn that. Pain does not last forever, nor is it necessarily unbearable, and we need to be taught that. -Rabbi Harold Kushner

I'm a quote whore and dig the concept of this community. That said:

....there are two ways to meet life; you may refuse to care until indifference becomes a habit, a defensive armor, and you are safe -- but bored. Or yu can care greatly, and live greatly -- till life breaks you on its wheel. -Dorothy Canfield Fisher
