You know your part of the story. Now hear the other side.

"Never judge a book by its cover"

"Never judge a book by its cover", how many times have we heard this saying? But how many times have we failed to do it? Or instead should I say: how many times have we succeeded to do it?
It is alway easier to point your finger at everyone else, than to point it towards yourself, isn't it?
Hrrgh..whatever. I'm just having a super bad day today. And I think I'm going crazy. All I think of is just him. Can't concentrate myself to other things. And what does he have to do with judging a book by its cover? Well, people judge him because of who he is. Fact is, those people don't know him. And those people judge me because I love him for who he is. Shallow people. They're so lost.

"This is the story of unspoken love..."

I currently am so crazy in love with Alexander the Great *lol*. Well, I've liked him since long ago, but recently I read a book about him, and I like him even more!

"Sex and sleep alone make me conscious that I am mortal."
“I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well.”
“I send you a kaffis of mustard seed, that you may taste and acknowledge the bitterness of my victory.”
“How great are the dangers I face to win a good name in Athens.”
"I would rather live a short life of glory than a long one of obscurity"
"Its better to burn out than fade away"
"Persian women are painful to my eyes"
"I am paying my mother extraordinarily high rent for nine months of dwelling" - when he was bombarded by complaints and accusations about Antipater and his associates in Pella. Perhaps, he should have listened more carefully after all....

Quotes by Alexander the Great

Here is the movie trailer of 'Alexander' starring Collin Farrel, Angelina Jolie, and Anthony Hopkins. Not a good movie in Hollywood standard, but okay for the effort.
