Revenge II

Revenge is a kind of wild justice; which the more man's nature runs to, the more ought law to weed it out. For as for the first wrong, it doth but offend the law; but the revenge of that wrong, putteth the law out of office. Certainly, in taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior; for it is a prince's part to pardon. And Solomon, I am sure, saith, It is the glory of a man, to pass by an offence. That which is past is gone, and irrevocable; and wise men have enough to do, with things present and to come; therefore they do but trifle with themselves, that labor in past matters. There is no man doth a wrong, for the wrong's sake; but thereby to purchase himself profit, or pleasure, or honor, or the like. Therefore why should I be angry with a man, for loving himself better than me? And if any man should do wrong, merely out of ill-nature, why, yet it is but like the thorn or briar, which prick and scratch, because they can do no other. The most tolerable sort of revenge, is for those wrongs which there is no law to remedy; but then let a man take heed, the revenge be such as there is no law to punish; else a man's enemy is still before hand, and it is two for one. Some, when they take revenge, are desirous, the party should know, whence it cometh. This is the more generous. For the delight seemeth to be, not so much in doing the hurt, as in making the party repent. But base and crafty cowards, are like the arrow that flieth in the dark. Cosmus, duke of Florence, had a desperate saying against perfidious or neglecting friends, as if those wrongs were unpardonable; You shall read (saith he) that we are commanded to forgive our enemies; but you never read, that we are commanded to forgive our friends. But yet the spirit of Job was in a better tune: Shall we (saith he) take good at God's hands, and not be content to take evil also? And so of friends in a proportion. This is certain, that a man that studieth revenge, keeps his own wounds green, which otherwise would heal, and do well. Public revenges are for the most part fortunate; as that for the death of Caesar; for the death of Pertinax; for the death of Henry the Third of France; and many more. But in private revenges, it is not so.

Nay rather, vindictive persons live the life of witches; who, as they are mischievous, so end they infortunate.

– Sir Francis Bacon


This is what I know for sure: You can't fix yourself by breaking someone else. I feel really sorry for you, because you will never be anything more than your sad self while I, finally awakened, will move on to bigger things. You clearly had issues from the beginning; I overlooked them because I was naive and always tried to see the best in everyone. But I should have known from the moment all dogs would bark and growl at you. Yes, that's you. A sad sack of sociopathic misery.

In the days that have passed since the moment I was born
I never knew I was so alone
But we are all alone, we were each born into a singular body,
And we're all going to die alone

Have a hard time letting go
Have a hard time being comfortable with the flaws
Have a hard time thinking of what others think
Make these mistakes and fall into lapses of havoc and remorse

Only because I am lonely

That's why I needed you
That's why I needed them before
But it's time to figure this fucking shit out for myself

In a way

Language is a funny thing. Isn't it funny we try to express our feelings, worries, vulnerabilities, passions...all of these things...through weird sounds we make using our tongues, through vibrations projected through our vocal chords? Through written language, which just seem to be strokes and dashes and squiggles, different symbols? Isn't it funny that these things wont mean anything or mean something completely different from one country to another when you cross the ocean?

 Learning a language means you're also learning how to associate yourself into that culture. Unless you were raised from infancy knowing this language, it shows intention on your behalf that you want to know and learn about something foreign. Through phrases, adages, idioms, slangs, you familiarize yourself with a certain mentality and sense of culture, and this is a language on its own. It's so fascinating to see...I don't want to be jaded in one mindset or culture, ever. I want to be as open and free as I can possibly be, forever.
