Sometimes I want to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice in the…
These poor gorgeous children! Nothing annoys me more than people complaining about tiny issues when there are people out there who have no food, have to work kilometres just to get water which is most likely diseased anyway.

2 Timothy 3:1-4 ...in the last days... men will be lovers of self, lovers of money... lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. (Jesus came in part to teach us how to love others, He spent his time ministering to the poor. And asked us to be imitators of him.)
I usually don't care much for sappy quotes, but I always need to be reminded of this. Coveting is ugly, and, if left unattended, grows into jealousy. And jealousy can grossly interfere with God's plan for your life, but, even worse, it can interfere with His plan for someone else's life.
Impara a pensare a te stesso.. Fregatene di quello che possono pensare gli altri e riocrda: comunque fai, sbagli. Ci sarà sempre qualcuno che avrà da dire o che è pronto a giudicarsi (probabilmente per evitare di affrontare se stessi)

Yes. Too many people - especially girls - are hardening themselves. They think that being tough and unfeeling equals strength. To me, true strength means not letting other people change who you are. If you are kind, sensitive, compassionate, and feeling, be strong enough and esteem yourself enough that you will never let those virtues go, no matter what the world tries to tell you or do to you.
