“On Not Being Seen”

I honestly can’t explain my thought processes on this. I do understand why, I just can’t explain it. What does this have to do with Conor’s mother and the monster? I know, but that would spoil it. Why does Conor want to be punished? Well, one theory is that when people are sad and depressed, they want pain. And the…

“Belief—The Second Tale”

I think believing in something is having faith that something will happen, or something is true. I don’t know what I make of the Second Tale. I think both of the men in that story weren’t very good people, but I don’t think that the parson really deserved his house to be destroyed. I mean, his daughters just died! Shouldn’t…

Source: Seeds of Rebellion/ Brandon Mull Quote: “’You don’t know how to respond,’ Ferrin said. ‘I’ll make it easy for you. The safest course of action for your young rebellion would be to toss me off the tallest cliff you can find.

You remember yourself in your prime and wonder where that…

Source: Chasing the Prophesy/ Brandon Mull/ page 276 Quote: “‘What if we have faith in something that’s wrong?’ Rachel asked. ‘Then we are heading for disappointment. But even misplaced faith can help us gain knowledge. We try to be smart about where we put out faith. And we adjust as we learn more.’” Context: They are trying to lay siege to…

“How I Survive Hard Things”

My philosophy for getting through hard times is not to dwell and wallow in your own misery. That only makes it grow in your mind, and makes everything seem worse than it really is. The biggest or thing I normally do to keep from despairing is reading, or listening to music. Not even necessarily uplifting music or books. Anything that…

Deep Thinker 2.2

Source: A World Without Heroes/ Brandon Mull/ page 110 Quote: “‘For each of us, destiny is a blend of potential, circumstances, and choices. A hero sacrifices for the greater good. A hero is true to his or her conscience. In short, heroism means doing the right thing regardless of the consequences. Although anyone could fit this description, very few do.…

Deep Thinkers 2.1

Source: Beyonders/ Brandon Mull Quote: “‘Indulgence is emptiness. I have proved the limits of food and frivolity. There is no real fulfillment in meaningless rushes of pleasure. You try to fill the emptiness with more extravagance, only to find the thrills becoming less satisfying and more fleeting. Most pleasures are best as a seasoning, not the main course.
