how strange to be born twice,
once here, now, in canada,
once far away,
hundreds of miles and hundreds of years,
in no-name village,
for your names, i am often thankful
for how much of myself
i don’t need to explain,
i ache with how much of myself
must be explained

You have a choice where you can either be all right to someone or you can be a little bit nicer, and that can make someone’s day.”
“If everyone was a little bit nicer to people, the world would be much better place.”
“It’s just such an unattractive trait… I never want to be the guy who leaves the room and people talk about me how they’ve just talked about that guy when he’s left.”
“It’s a very cool job, but it doesn’t make me any better than anybody else. If you’re not very nice to people, word gets around. If you act even slightly diva, people will pick up on it. If i see someone acting like they’re something special it shocks me into not doing it even more. I don’t understand why you cant just be nice to people, whether you’re in the public eye or not.”
“Not everyone can understand it, but to that girl or that boy, it might be the most important thing in the world. Just ‘cause we don’t understand it doesn’t mean you can say it’s crazy.”
"I got told a motto to live by and I’ve kinda tried it, of ‘Work hard, play hard, and be nice.’ And I think it works."
"Be nice to nice.

i am nice and that niceness turns into naivety and that turns into a broken heart why when how did i end up like this today i just want to sleep see y face everywhere think of you all the time
I am beautiful,
especially when I’m angry.
When there are no words,
and I am my purest form of rage.
They tell us that women
should cry quietly,
and birth their anger in secret.
But I will rain over everything near,
my beauty is in my angry rebellion.

how many muggle born kids showed up at hogwarts like, “i get you’re into magic and don’t get me wrong, magic is awesome, but please don’t try and tell me quills and inkwells make more sense than pencils. i realize you have an aesthetic going, but admit it’s that. admit it’s just for looks.”
