-Most people don’t care about you and your problems.
-The only reason you still have secrets is that no one has put the time and effort into finding them.
-The human body is extremely fragile; you’re just lucky you haven’t been hit hard enough in the wrong place.
-There are many things worse then death.
-You survive off of a constant and immeasurable supply of others human decency.
-You’re lied to more often, and by more people, then you’d like to imagine.

-Great men are equally capable of doing amazing things, as they are terrible things.
-It is all too easy to think the world revolves around you.
-Most people are not as mature as their age lets on.
-Most people are not cruel, merely stupid and ignorant, and that allows the cruel people to work all the more effectively.
-An open heart is waiting to be broken; a closed one is missing out. The best approach is to make it like a walled city, where you feel emotion but can close it off to unnecessary pain.

-Most of the people on the other side aren’t evil, they merely believe something different then you, or sometimes where just born in different circumstances.
-If god exists or not is, in large part, irrelevant to most discussions, we’ll figure it out when we die.
-The only lasting legacy most of us will leave is on the people around us. For when we die, it is only their memories us that will remain, and we will have little effect on what they thought of us.
-You likely haven’t lived up to your full potential. You also likely aren’t failing. You’re merely average.
-The best way to over come a fear is through exposure, slowly growing to rationally overcome it.
-Most people, no matter how well they hide it, are lonely.
-The past was never as dark as you want to believe, and the future will never be as bright, for human nature rarely changes.
