"Well, here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the Sea comes the end of our fellowship. 

Go in peace!

I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil."


J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

"He wants them to learn to walk and must therefore take away His hand; and if only the will to walk is already there He is pleased even with their stumbles.

Don't be deceived, Wormwood.

Our cause is never more in danger than when a human, no longer desiring, but still intending, to do our Enemy's will, looks round upon a universe from which every trace of Him seems to have vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys."

— C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters


This book is written in the point of view of a 'senior demon', hence, the 'Enemy' refers to God. Thought I'd clarify. Very good read by the way.

but in defence of the Heart

the heart is a fool.

the heart does whatever it wants, whenever it wants. lacking rationale. throwing caution to the wind with foolish passion.

it gives all it has; all its blood, all its beats, all its hard motherhugging work. even when it knows that what it's doing would tear itself apart, it continues to do so.

in all that giving, sometimes it receives. sometimes all that passion gets rewarded. the reward ranges from acknowledgement to fame, to what we humans call reciprocated feelings. sometimes the heart receives from another heart.

it happens ever so rarely. but apparently to dear foolish heart, it's worth it.

because some things go beyond the description that any vocabulary in any language could put together. because some things that the heart is capable of like Faith, Hope, and Love just surpasses our human understanding.

the heart is a fool, but it is an honest fool.

kill time to kill self

"I realize that death is not the end of life, but it is also my best friend. She is always sitting by my side, even while I am talking to you, looking to the mountains here with snow.

"Your death is always sitting by your side?"

By my side, sitting in the chair right in front of me. I see death as a beautiful woman.

"What is she saying?"

She is saying, "I am going to kiss you," and I say to her, "Not now, please." But she says "OK, not now—but pay attention and try to get the best of every moment because I am going to take you." And I say, "OK, thank you for giving me the most important lesson in life—to live your moment fully."

— Paulo Coelho
