My Best Friend

Look At Me - Blog Entry #9 - My Best Friend, Bryan Palomino: 
A Man With A Heart of Gold

Bryan Palomino is a year older than me and we have known each other for over a year now. We went to see Fast Five when it came out, we've talked on Facebook and on the phone. And although he may have been a little unreliable, he had a good reason for the many times that he didn't show up somewhere where we had plans. He may do some drugs and drink, but he has a heart of gold. He's nice, kind, cute, laid-back, chill, and he's got the most handsome smile I ever saw. Over this past year, I've noticed he's becoming less and less shy. When we talk in the morning in the cafeteria at my school,  he sits next to me instead of across from me. Maybe I'll call to see if we can go to the beach or something. We did talk on the phone a few months back. My mom even likes him. So does my gramma, aunt, and a few other of my relatives.

She's the one you can't put down.”

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Avoid providing material for the drama that is always stretched tight between parents and children; it uses up much of the children’s strength and wastes the love of the elders, which acts and warms even if it doesn’t comprehend. Don’t ask for advice from them and don’t expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is strength and blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”
― Rainer Maria RilkeLetters to a Young Poet

C. JoyBell C.
“It should be a privilege to be able to say "I love you" to someone. It shouldn't be something people say just because they feel like it. A privilege that is earned. They say you have to earn the right to be loved; no, love is unconditional, if you love someone, they don't have to earn it. But. The right to tell someone that you love them? That has to be earned. You have to earn the right to be believed.”
― C. JoyBell C.

“Pero ni los conventos tienen muros bastante elevados, ni las madres tienen cerraduras suficientemente complicadas, ni la religión deberes
lo necesariamente estrechos para encerrar a esos encantadores pajarillos en sus jaulas, sobre las cuales apenas nos dignamos a arrojar
algunas flores. Y es que ellas sienten irresistibles deseos de conocer ese mundo que tan cuidadosamente se les oculta, anhelan penetrar
el enigma que creen tan tentador, escuchan conmovidas la primera voz que a través de los barrotes llega a sus oídos contándoles secretos
y bendice la primera mano que alza una pluma del velo misterioso.”
― Alexandre Dumas-filss

Lionel Shriver
“I realize it's commonplace for parents to say to their child sternly, 'I love you, but I don't always like you.' But what kind of love is that? It seems to me that comes down to, 'I'm not oblivious to you - that is, you can still hurt my feelings - but I can't stand having you around.' Who wants to be loved like that? Given a choice, I might skip the deep blood tie and settle for being liked. I wonder if wouldn't have been more moved if my own mother had taken me in her arms and said, 'I like you.' I wonder if just enjoying your kid's company isn't more important.”
― Lionel ShriverWe Need to Talk About Kevin
