Non sibi sed aliis (Not for ourselves, but for others)
The motto on the colonial seal of the State of Georgia (USA) can be seen on the gate of the Savannah plantation where Flint and Thomas Hamilton are finally reunited. It has a deep meaning: Flint has fought all those years not for himself, but for revenge, anger and rage, the thing that wants “to see the world burn”; he has decided to quit his war not for saving himself but for Thomas, clinging to the hope he could be still alive as Silver said he would.
hey everyone i had a real great time on earth but now i have to leave my physical body, because a man asked us for hand sanitizer at the register and when we gave it to him he immediately unzipped his fly and started pumping it on to his dick
You walked out of my life and I just will never understand why you think it is okay to try to walk back in acting like nothing ever happened. You looked at me and purposely looked away, you told your feet to go, and they did. Things were silent for months.
And then one day, you hear a random stranger yell out my name to one of their friends who shares it, and you think, “whoa. I wonder how she’s doing.”
And then you have the nerve to come up to me and ask me. You ask me how I’m doing, and you don’t even apologize for what you did to me, and that just seems crazy to me.
“Fine,” I say.
I’m fine. I am doing just fine without you, and I would love to keep it that way.
