'We destroy everything we touch: that’s the curse of being human.'
‘Then choose to rebuild,’ he had told me. ‘Choose to create.’
But is there really a difference? You cannot have one without the other. You must destroy a tree to make a canvas, and stain that canvas to create a painting. Destruction can be beautiful and creation ugly. All we can do is try our best to accept the consequences of our actions and hope destruction never becomes decay. Remove the shackles from your wrists, cast your eyes from the shadows to their sources, and never forget your own significance.
