Zuko: My uncle, he used to say the best stuff. ‘Don’t work yourself into a lather. Look where it is and you’ll find it. Don’t put me in a home. Tell the truth and shame the devil. The devil knows where you’re hiding. If you take enough rides with the devil, pretty soon he’s going to drive.’
Most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be. Sometimes you’ll put up a good fight and lose. Sometimes you’ll hold on really hard and realise there is no choice but to let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room.
For Thanksgiving Greg’s whole class is supposed to draw pilgrims but to everyone’s confusion he draws a guy in a pointy red hat and tells everybody it’s his brother who’s a pilgrim, so his teacher tries to set him straight by showing him the illustrations in the book but he starts laughing and says “Nahhh, that’s Lorna!” so then they just kind of let him draw whatever the heck he wants.
