  • Beauty is in little things, the things we decide to do when we are sad, those little things that hope makes us do. Beauty is in smiling when you are angry, beauty is in holding back when you are provoked, beauty is in cheering people up when you are sad.

    I know this because once upon a time i was very sad and discouraged, all i ever believed in seemed like a ruse, everything seemed like a sham, i felt empty i felt dry, i felt dead and waiting for a funeral, but i decided to do something new, something i had not done before, i decided to create a series of motivational pictures gathering as many quotes as i could find, i started designing, and pushing, i got some of my friends to help publicize my intentions and i got a following, and lots of people came to appreciate my work, and i got back some sense of purpose and direction. I guess the best and surest way to happiness is to put your happiness on somebody's face and your own face will reflect it like a mirror reflects sunshine.
