WHEN MY FRIENDS DONT LIKE THE THINGS I LIKE BUT SHOW INTEREST BECAUSE THEY KNOW I LIKE TO TALK ABOUT IT
We do not rest satisfied with the present. We anticipate the future as too slow in coming, as if in order to hasten its course; or we recall the past, to stop its too rapid flight. So imprudent are we that we wander in the times which are not ours and do not think of the only one which belongs to us; and so idle are we that we dream of those times which are no more and thoughtlessly overlook that which alone exists.
For the present is generally painful to us. We conceal it from our sight, because it troubles us; and, if it be delightful to us, we regret to see it pass away. We try to sustain it by the future and think of arranging matters which are not in our power, for a time which we have no certainty of reaching.
Let each one examine his thoughts, and he will find them all occupied with the past and the future. We scarcely ever think of the present; and if we think of it, it is only to take light from it to arrange the future.
The present is never our end. The past and the present are our means; the future alone is our end. So we never live, but we hope to live; and, as we are always preparing to be happy, it is inevitable we should never be so.

Every single friday this kid just shows up dressed as link I love this school
Does he talk
he does but whenever someone calls his name for roll call he just goes “HEUH”
what happened in this young man’s life that made him think “damn, every friday i’m gonna go to school dressed as link”
If this isn’t fucking gnarly, then i don’t know what is
