Uni Book sale
Wish I could sell books everyday :)
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die [now] liberty will never perish… Soldiers – don’t give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you and enslave you – who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you as cattle, as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts. You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don’t hate – only the unloved hate. Only the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers – don’t fight for slavery, fight for liberty. In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written ” the kingdom of God is within man ” – not one man, nor a group of men – but in all men – in you, the people. You the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy let’s use that power – let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give you the future and old age and security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie. They do not fulfil their promise, they never will. Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfil that promise. Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness.

It’s a hardlife being a puppy on a sunday morning
It’s a shame how someone you’ve known 18 years can ring and text you every day when they’re single and then when they’re in a relationship pretty much forget you all together…
I need to meet some new friends! (Not a new best friend, at least I have an irreplaceable one of those (: )
Voluntarily helped my little sister with her homework tonight which was to produce a poster on Amnesty International. Why did I never have this kind of homework? Times must have changed in 10 years, in this instance for the better :) Was fun playing cut and stick with my Amnesty magazines, I reckon she’ll have the best poster in class!
The pickpocketing show on Channel 4 really annoyed me tonight, apparently pick pocketers are black, eastern European, Asian, Chilean….anything but white and British
