Since I act, react, and interact with other humans, I have the little-spoken-of power of influence. We can influence the moods and even the decisions of those around us without even really saying a direct opinion. It's seems unfair to have so much power. But, now that I've realized it, I can do good and not evil. No sarcasm. No belittlement. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, not even if they deserve it.
I just heard this sweet quote off Six Feet Under:
"The future is just a fucking concept that we use to avoid being alive today."
