“You who suffer because you love, love still more. To die of love, is to live by it.” ✨ “You ask me what forces me to speak? A strange thing; my conscience.” ✨

Victor Hugo - Les Miserables (two quotes because Mr. Hugo speaks to me on another level) ✨✨
History is left behind by those who care enough to make something of it. That’s why I am so invested in making this all count, making sure I don’t leave without carving a single mark, the tiniest impression in this world.
Live and speak through love. God knows we need more of it in this material world.
Do you often think about the lives being shaped around you and how history is being made every single day? What theories/thoughts might you have that maybe you’ve never voiced or shared with anybody else?
