The tribute that vice pays to virtue.

People are dying everywhere and there is famine and all and here I am, with the air-con blazing at me and a carton of choco-chip ice cream screaming to be eaten. I cannot wait for school to end, again! Really want my holidays and abit of free time to chill out. I know I have not been very active in school, ie: coming late, not really giving much into projects, skipping lessons [coming late durr], and ect, but I really want to change and damnit if there are just some obstacles I got to overcome I will damn well not let anything or anyone bring me down. I have given up too much sometimes and i have close my eyes to so many situations. I am still a young teenager who is going to grow into a mature adult soon, so LIFE, give me your best shot.

Pride: In almost every list Pride (Latin, superbia), or hubris, is considered the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins, and indeed the ultimate source from which the others arise. It is identified as a desire to be more important or attractive than others, failing to acknowledge the good work of others, and excessive love of self (especially holding self out of proper position toward God). Dante's definition was "love of self perverted to hatred and contempt for one's neighbor." In Jacob Bidermann's medieval miracle play, Cenodoxus, pride is the deadliest of all the sins and leads directly to the damnation of the titulary famed Parisian doctor. In perhaps the best-known example, the story of Lucifer, pride (his desire to compete with God) was what caused his fall from Heaven, and his resultant transformation into Satan. In Dante's Divine Comedy, the penitents were forced to walk with stone slabs bearing down on their backs in order to induce feelings of humility.

Just random things that I have been reading.
