The Thin Line Between Righteousness and Hate

"When a person turns to wrong, is it a want to be, belong?

Part of things at any cost, at what price a life is lost

At what point do we begin, fighter spirit a will to win
But what makes a man decide, take the wrong or righteous road

There's a thin line between love and hate
Wider divide that you can see between good and bad
There's a grey place between black and white
But everyone does have the right to choose the path that he takes

We all like to put the blame on society these days
But what kind of good or bad a new generation brings . . ."

- The Persuaders lyrics

"Wherever we go in life, our attitude goes ahead of us. So if you’re carrying an attitude of doom and self-defeatism, the world’s going to give you a lot of reasons to sustain that attitude. Similarly, if you can shift your attitude to one of more positive expectation, agree with yourself that surprises might be fun, that challenges and gifts might both be part of your learning process in life, you will do better. So these are fundamental rules of living:  check your attitude.  Recognize that whatever you think or feel, the universe is going to say yes."

- Robert Moss

"There comes a time in life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.  Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good.  Love the people who treat you right.  Pray for the ones who don't.  Life is too short to be anything but happy.  Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living."
