I no longer look for the good in people


I no longer look for the good in people, I search for the real… because while good is often dressed in fake clothing, real is naked and proud no matter the scars.

-Chishala Lishomwa

I’m writing about real things. Real people. Real characters. You have to believe what I write about is true or you wouldn’t pay any attention at all. Sometimes it’s me, or a composite of me and other people. Sometimes it’s not me at all.

Lou Reed

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.

Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.

If you don’t like my words, don’t listen. If you don’t like my appearance, don’t look. If you don’t like my actions, turn your head; It’s as simple as that.

Romantic art deals with the exception and with the individual. Good people, belonging as they do to the normal, and so, commonplace type, are artistically uninteresting.

Oscar Wilde

I think I grew up with a profound sense of watching people who were good people, who were smart people, who were hardworking people – God, nobody on this Earth worked harder than my mom and dad – and they had very little.

Elizabeth Warren

We often assume that if we are good people we will not suffer the ills of the world.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
