“How very much I hope that your worries will be laid to rest and you will emerge from them somewhat fortified; for truly, In order to live we have to believe that every evil conceals a pure blessing, which we in our blindness would have rebuffed had it been offered to us without this painful disguise.” I've seen this before, where is it from???

Life’s dreadfulness has startled and horrified people but where are the sweet and magnificent things that do not occasionally wear this mask, the mask of horror? Life itself – and we do not know anything besides it – is it not dreadful? Yet as soon as we admit its dreadfulness – not as an adversary, for how could we be its match? – but remain somehow filled with confidence that this very dreadfulness belongs entirely to us and that it is at the present moment simply still too large, too expansive, too un-embraceable for our aspiring hearts… as soon as we affirm its most horrendous dreadfulness at the risk of perishing of it (i.e., of the excess in ourselves!), we gain an inkling of the most blissful state that can be ours at this cost.

Whoever does not some point absolutely affirm and even rejoice fully in the dreadfulness of life will never lay claim to the inexpressible powers of our existence; he will pass through life along the periphery and will have been, once the decision has been cast, neither one of the living nor one of the dead.

To understand our being here as one side of being in its entirety and to exhaust it passionately, this would be demand placed on us by death; while life, as long as one truly admits it, is in every spot of all life.

How very much I hope that your worries will be laid to rest and you will emerge from them somewhat fortified: for truly, in order to live we have to believe that every evil conceals a pure blessing, which we in our blindness would have rebuffed had it been offered to us without this painful disguise.

Shidge Week Day 1: Future

I was gonna make this a longer comic, but it would have been too long so I decided to write a fanfic. Unfortunately that didn’t happen either since I suck at writing. So here’s a partial comic and a summary (after the comic) of what da fuq is going on lol So here it is!

In the future, the Galra Empire has been defeated and the galaxy is peaceful once again. Afterwards, the paladins of Voltron go their separate ways and live out the rest of their lives peacefully. If the galaxy is in danger, Allura will call for their help once again, but fortunately, that hasn’t happened. Years later Shiro reunites with Pidge, who happens to be a single mother. They catch up, and things start sailing smoothly from there. *cough*theyprobablygetmarriedandhaveanotherkidlater*cough*
