but rising every time we fall.

dig two graves.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals,
adjust the action steps.
When anger rises, think of the consequences.
Respect yourself and others will respect you.

the extent of one’s ignorance.

Learn as if you would never
 be able to master it, hold it as though you would be in fear of losing it”.

“Human-love exists only as a concept -
human-love is the self-imposition of ones existence by using someone other than themselves”.

In other words, love is when an individual relies on another person to make them feel “alive” - in a positive way - however, love is only as real as you think you are. Therefore, if you want to be happy you must learn to be alone without being lonely.
Learn that being alone does not mean being unhappy.
The world is full of plenty of interesting and enjoyable things to do.

All change, even the most longed for
have their melancholy. 
For what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves.
We must must die to one life before we can enter another”.

“Trust your instincts.
If something feels wrong - even though it looks good - then it is wrong.
Instincts are always right”.

“If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. 
If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing.
If she’s worth it, you won’t give up.
If you give up, you’re not worthy.
Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for”.

Bob Marley.

Good people are rarely suspicious: they cannot imagine others doing the things they themselves are incapable of doing. Usually, they accept the undramatic solution as the correct one, and let matters rest there.
Then too, the normal are inclined to visualise the psychopath as one who’s as monstrous in appearance as he is in mind, which is about as far from the truth as one could well get.
These monsters of real life usually looked and behaved in a more normal manner than their actually normal brothers and sisters.
They presented a more convincing picture of virtue than virtue presented of itself.
Just as the wax rosebud or the plastic peach seemed more perfect to the eye, more what the mind thought a rosebud or a peach should be, than the imperfect original from which it had been modelled.

William March - The Bad Seed.

Honi soit qui mal y pense!

Max, Molly & Myself



Peter - 9th March 1950 to 9th February 2014
Sacha & Peter - Rothbury

Chiquitita, you and I know. How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they’re leaving.
You’ll be dancing once again and the pain will end, there will be no time for grieving.
Chiquitita, you and I cry. But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you.
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before, sing a new song Chiquitita.
Try once more like you did before, sing a new song Chiquitita.
