We’re all different. Especially him. But there’s something kind of fantastic about that, isn’t there?

君が君で生きられるのは
最初で最後この一度だけ
大きな地図を広げた後は
君だけの道を描けばいい
━━
This is the first and last time
You get the chance to live as yourself
So after spreading out the large map
Just draw your own path.

—浜崎あゆみ、(miss) understood (via ayu-michan)

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.

—Pablo Picasso (via liquidlightandrunningtrees)
