You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

Not sure why Brexit is the only issue people are concerned with. Whoever wins this has 5 years in power, Brexit is expected to take 2 years (will take longer for the effects to hit), leaving whoever wins with 3 years free to do whatever the f*** they want.

May wants room to do a softer Brexit, IMO. If they have a big majority then they don't need to entertain the crazies in the party.

What are Corbyn's views on free trade deals? This is important because if you leave the EU, you're going to need to trade with other countries. You can't turn your back on the world. This is why I would vote Conservative.

This is the least surprising endorsement of the entire campaign.

What is May's view on foodbanks? This is important because we want rich people to prosper, so their wealth can trickle down to poor people in real terms. We need a lot more poor people for the system to work.

Me neither, I'm 2-0 down on actual voting and 4-0 down including Clinton then Trump. Tbf, it's because my idea of equality is wrong, and the well off should be allowed to continue not paying taxes while poor people die at their expense.

i hate Pip the poster, i'm sure he's alright in real life (i'm not) but every post he makes about politics is aids
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name
