“The joy of life consists in the exercise of one’s energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal.”—Aleister Crowley (via loveage-moondream)

"Most of us have grown up with bad models for what adult life should look like. With parents battling each other for supremacy, and losing. They turn to us, their children, to fill that void, to play some part in their incomplete drama.
We do not have to perpetuate that sickness. We can each choose to stop following a failed template, and create our own template.
What should a person look for in a mate? One who wants to be a partner, not a stereotype.

I guess nobody told the school faculty and the police that dinosaurs are extinct.
