A Quote by Raphie on love sadness loss disappointment

No matter how much you love, it might never be enough, and it might never be returned, or returned only for a time. With that recognition comes what might just be my least favorite part of growing up, knowing enough to expect so little that disappointments cease to disappoint.

A Quote by Raphie on santa hope belief faith childlike north pole yes v

Yes, Virginia, Santa still exists. He exists at least as much as he existed when first you asked that question of the New York Sun a little more than a hundred years ago. He doesn’t live on the North Pole, though. No, Virginia, he lives in your heart, in mine, in all of ours. And how do I know that? I know it always by the childlike faith we cling to that yet makes “tolerable this existence,” and by the intensity of the disappointment we still feel when that faith is injured.

A Quote by Raphie on hypocrisy morality

I doubt I can prove to you that I'm not a hypocrite. To some extent I believe we all are. As with "threats to the nation," as with "morality," hypocrisy is and always will be measured in degrees, not by its presence or absence.

Every time we deny that truth in ourselves and in those who lead us, we step one step closer, not to failure, but to a failure to be better.

I don't know much, but what I know I know. I suspect, however, many things and aim to figure out if I was right.
