"Being nice was the ideal. The one place where people didn't get loud or so quiet the could scare you. If you could just be nice, you wouldn't have to worry about arguments at all. But being nice wasn't always as easy as it seemed. Especially when the rest of the world could be so mean." "Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. You have to know that you're a good person & a good friend. What is meant to be will end up good & what isn’t, wont. Relationships are worth fighting for, but sometimes you can’t be the only one fighting. At times, people need to fight for you. If they don’t, you must just move on & realize what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you. Hopefully, people realize great things when they come around & don’t lose something real. Always fight until you cant anymore, and then be fought for." "Is that what happens to us? A life of conflict with no time for friends... so that when it's done, only our enemies leave roses. Violent lives ending violently... We never die in bed. Not allowed. Something in our personalities perhaps? Some animal urge to fight and struggle, making us what we are? Unimportant, We do what we have to do. Others bury their heads between the swollen teats of indulgence and gratification, piglets squirming beneath a sow for shelter... But there is no shelter... and the future is bearing down like an express train." -Rorschach.
