I am Jack's wasted life.

I'm a monster. I'm a poet. I'm a joke and I wrote this just for you.
Ask me anything

'Live in joy,

In love,

Even among those who hate.

Live in joy,

In health,

Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy,

In peace,

Even among the troubled.

Look within.

Be still.

Free from fear and attachment.

Know the sweet joy of the way.

Heptu Bidding Farewell to the City of Obb, 1909

John Duncan

I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize. The first is gentleness; the second is frugality; the third is humility, which keeps me from putting myself before others. Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal; avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men.
