The adult world is pretty irrelevant to me. Whether I'm off on my bicycle (or pony) exploring, lost in a good book, or giggling with my best friend, I live in a world apart, one full of adventure and wonder and other stuff adults don't understand. Take this quiz!
The prince said, "Who is she, Molly? What kind of woman is it who believes--who knows, for I saw her face--that she can cure wounds with a touch, and who weeps without tears?"
Molly went on about her work, still humming to herself.
"Any woman can weep without tears," she answered over her shoulder, "and most can heal with her hands. It depends on the wound. She is a woman, Your Highness, and that's riddle enough." --The Last Unicorn

We kill at every step, not only in wars, riots, and executions. We kill when we close our eyes to poverty, suffering, and shame. In the same way all disrespect for life, all hard-heartedness, all indifference, all contempt is nothing else than killing.
