I just discovered that there’s a sort of poem which if you read it from top to bottom, it is pessimistic. But if you read from the bottom line to the top, it’s optimistic. (What an awesome template to try!) Click to see an example I found on the internet.
“‘The story of my recent life.’ I like that phrase. It makes more sense than ‘the story of my life’, because we get so many lives between birth and death. A life to be a child. A life to come of age. A life to wander, to settle, to fall in love, to parent, to test our promise, to realize our mortality — and in some lucky cases, to do something after that realization.”—Mitch Albom
“You spend your whole life stuck in the labryinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”—Looking for Alaska, John Green (via quote-book)
“They had never been closer in their month of love, nor communicated more profoundly one with another, than when she brushed silent lips against his coat’s shoulder or when he touched the end of her fingers, gently, as though she were asleep.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (via bookmania)
