If you truly want to be respected by people you love, you must prove to them that you can survive without them.

The more you try to impress, the more you become depressed, and the more they get tired of your coercion. It doesn’t make them love you, instead, they’ll see you as a little child, trying to draw a senseless picture on a piece of paper, begging people to look at it and admire it by force. You can persuade someone to look at your face, but you can’t persuade them to see the beauty therein.

Some patient dogs had waited a long time for the fatest bone to come, but the impatient had gone to scavenge for the little it could see.
