If you love books and feel like an interesting read this true story is one of the most amazing stories I have ever read.
The story follows a boy and an elephant who were born together, eat, sleep and drink together. These two are inseparable until someone buys the circusthey live in. This is a heartbreakingly beautiful storey.
“It must be one of those special happenings that has a mystical meaning, Curpo, to have my son born on the same day, let alone the same hour, as the baby elephant.”
Be who you are and say what you mean because those who mind dont matter and those who matter dont mind.
You’re on your own and you know what you know and YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go.
Today you are you that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is YOUER than you.
I’m lucky to have the family I have.
Beautiful. Complicated. Inspiring.
My family are the most important people to me, every day they inspire me.
The best way I can describe my dad would be like Liam Neeson in ‘taken’. He is clever, he is persistent and he is strong. I never doubt anything when my father is next to me. No one could make me feel as safe as what he can.
My mother on the other hand is completely the opposite.
She is nurturing, strong-willed and wears her heart on her sleeve. She is absolutely amazing and the strength she has shown in her weakest moments only make me more proud of her. I would describe my mother as Catherine Diaz in ‘My sisters keeper’
My sister has always supported me. She has always been my best friend in the entire world. I would describe her as Reese Witherspoon in ‘legally blonde’. She is probably one of the kindest people I know but she is a typical Barbie. Shes blonde, she loves pink and anything that sparkles.
My other sister has passed away and I don’t think I could pick a character out of a movie that she would be like. She was brave during her fight with cancer however just wasnt strong enough. Never once did she think she was dying. Never once did she give up.
remember to be thankful for the people you have around you. They are precious and vulnerable and you never know when it will be the last time you see them.
Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you imagine.
Do one thing everyday that scares you.
Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.
Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.
Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.
Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on..
Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.
Snape: “So when the time comes… the boy must die?”
Dumbledore: “Yes. Yes… he must die.”
Snape: “You’ve kept him alive so that he can die at the proper moment. You’ve been raising him like a pig for slaughter!”
Dumbledore: “Don’t tell me now that you’ve grown to care for the boy.
Lily… after all this time?”
The tragicically beautiful moment where you finally understand the complex character of Severus Snape.
