Achilles Davenport: “You have no idea what you’re doing. The future of the whole continent, maybe the whole world, is tied up in that Manuscript.”
Shay Cormac: “Perhaps. But we don’t have the right to decide that future.”
Achilles: “The right? We have the responsibility!”
Shay: “We are responsible for killing innocents and destroying cities! This mad grab for power. It ends now.”
“People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.” – 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 (NLT)
I have a confession to make: I am not an empathetic person. I have a hard time putting myself in the shoes of others and feeling what they are feeling. I can come off as cold and disconnected at times. Even why I’m volunteering and helping others throughout my day, I can forget that I’m helping actual people and that it isn’t a project. I’m not exactly sure why: could be my genetics, my upbringing, or the constant flow of disasters that parade themselves across the internet and TV every night.
