“A Democracy or A Mobocracy”
“The heart of democracy lies in the Majoritarian rule or the people,
but it is not a mere game of dominant numbers.
The Majority can rule and rule effectively only if its judgement is an informed one. With an informed electorate, a healthy collision of ideas is assured that will generate sparks to fan the flames of democracy.”
“Rule by the ignorant is a sham democracy. A mobocracy, for a nation cannot be free yet ignorant.”
“If there is anything a democracy cannot survive, it is the virus of ignorance.”

A piece of Philippine Jurisprudence
Know the difference..
We can’t just stay down and wait for someone else to save us from our troubles,
I mean, honestly, if we do, chances are we’d be laying around forever!
We gotta learn to help ourselves, simply because we may be the only help out there, at least for a while.
So stand up. And if you really can’t, then crawl, until you find the strength.
Just continue to move forward.
“Tell me everything there is to know about you..”
“Your past, your present and where you want to be in the future..”
“Tell me your goals, aspirations, your greatest triumphs, and your dreams..”
But most of all...
Tell me your failures...
“Your doubts, your sorrows, your fears, your greatest regrets and mistakes..”
“Tell me your demons and the hidden battles you have yet to win”
Show me the dark side of your heart..
“So i can love you with all of mine”
“Walking down this path towards your dreams, goals, aspirations..
“You spend your whole life believing that this is yours to claim as you head down this road..”
“Telling yourself that every step back, every failure you encounter is somehow preparing you for that “inevitable” leap forward, that you just have to remind yourself to never stop..”
“Knowing that stumbling every once in a while is more than normal in every journey..”
But is it....really..?
“What if it becomes all too common..”
“What if time catches up..”
“What if i can’t do it and this isn’t for me after all”
The sad reality is.. some people spend their entire life pursuing something, their dreams, only to realize that the...
“You’re the only person who doesn’t want a thing from me...
you’re the only one who can ask anything of me at the same time”
Oh the irony
I am me!
-i’m back! After a year, lettrs!
"The love that lasts the longest is the one that is never returned"
"You don't know anything about real loss,
Because that only occurs when you love someone more than you love yourself.."
Its tough being a kind and soft hearted person,
in a cruel and unforgiving world..
"Don't be the type of person that makes forever seem too short"
"I've made you smile a thousand times
I thought i'd seen every bit of it
Until you smiled right after mentioning his name..
I had never seen anything like it
It was a smile i had been longing to see
A smile that i hoped for a very long time i could help make
But then i realized, you just did..
And it wasn't because of me"
"God knows I have given her everything i could.."
"But she still chose him.."
"i guess i never deserved her in the first place.."
"So let the pain remain forever in my heart"
For every throb it brings..
Is one more moment spent with you
I let the pain remain
If that's the only way..
If there's no other way..
"To be with you again"
Let the pain remain
I'd be more than willing to give a piece of my heart,
Just to fix yours..
I'd be willing to bleed, to hurt,
Just to keep you safe from the pain
Even when all seems lost,
Hope will never fade..
And yes, hope is the number one provider of miracles too :)
So don't count your self out just yet!
One of the worst mistakes that we are all guilty of making is investing our time and effort towards someone without making sure they'll stay forever..
"You don't tell anyone you're climbing a mountain.."
"You don't have to,"
"Because they'll eventually know once you've conquered it, and laid a path for them to follow"
Long Distance Relationships are tough,
But Ponder this thought for a second,
I want you to to realize that despite the miles and the oceans, there is someone out there willing to love you from a distance
It takes courage and passion, to love from afar..
And it takes true love to keep it that way :)
Stay strong lovers!
"Killing dreams and love alike.."
"Ever since the birth of man"
"I think one of the reasons why everything is made to be temporary is so that we can learn to appreciate things while they're still there,
And not regret it when they're long gone.."
"The sleepless nights,"
"The aching heart.."
"It will all come to an end, i promise"
"Hang in there, i love you"
Work in the dark.. and trust me,
Once you've finished, and decide to step out..
You'll shine twice as bright
"Just because he's smarter than me, richer than me, more good looking and can play every instrument there is,"
"doesn't mean he's a better person than me "
"You just can't judge us like that"
-the guy next door
Fuckboys disgust me, absolutely revolting.
Yes, we gentlemen hate them too, my dear ladies
They give us men a bad reputation, that is, if they really are men considering such childish behavior they display towards you!
Leading a woman on, making them fall with their alluring looks, fake smiles and sweet lies and then leaving them, basically breaking their hearts at the last moment and disappearing like a ghost.
It brings out the inner demon even in the most mannered gentleman like me..
"Its kind of hard to think of something more painful than when someone breaks your heart.."
"Yeah, try breaking someone's trust.."
There's no such thing as a corny joke.
Someone actually made an effort to make you smile, and that's not corny at all.
-Bogart the Explorer
now that you're gone, i am left searching for myself
Only to realize that i might never find it,
Because, i had lost myself,
By Loving you..
