In The Flesh Appreciation
∟ Day Three: Favourite Living Character→ Philip Wilson
I think we should stop this. I think we should all stop pretending. You can only pretend for so long, and then you’re back stuck with yourself. What I’m trying to explain is that if the idea that you were ever a pure person… it just makes everything else so much worse. It makes you so disappointed. People aren’t pure. We are not good any more than they’re evil or they’re inhuman. Maybe we only have to pretend they’re bad because we have to pretend we’re good. But if we could just accept our real selves and live with who we really are and love ourselves, then maybe… maybe we could accept and live with and… and love.
Because you’re not free! -Ian, what you and I have makes me free. Not what these assholes know.

LITERATURE MEME | 7 characters - (1) enjolras from victor hugo’s les miserables
In Hugo’s 1862 novel, Enjolras is the charismatic leader of the Friends of the ABC, a group dedicated to political change in France. His name comes from the Occitan enjeura which means “to terrify.”
In social issues class today our professor held up a black book and was like “this book is red” and we were all “no” and he said “yes it is” and we were just all “that’s not right” and he turned it around and the back cover was red and he said “Don’t tell somebody they’re wrong until you’ve seen things from their point of view”
that speaks to me
