I know im ugly but I have good music taste
To be is to be perceived. And so to know thyself is only possible through the eyes of the other. The nature of our immortal lives is in the consequences of our words and deeds that go on apportioning themselves throughout all time. Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb we are bound to others past and present… and by each crime and every kindness we birth our future.
