I was only twelve when I discovered my super powers. I’ve tried my very best to keep them hidden. Because the world isn’t ready for a boy who can see what awful way the world is going – Mikkel Sørensen

I wrote this a few days ago. It’s ironic, yet rather true. I believe I was twelve when I started thinking, and sometimes I find myself thinking: Seemingly thinking is becoming a rarety only few are gifted with.
When I say ‘thinking’, I’m not talking about ordinary thought passing through our brains, but realisations and deeper thoughts on subjects such as life and the commotions around it.
Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Give a fish a man, and he’ll eat for weeks – Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata

This has variations too. “Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for the rest of his life”. “Give a man a fire, and he’ll be warm for a day. Put a man on fire, and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life”, etc.
To give a man something, it will last only short. Teach a man something, and it’ll last forever. We have no use for gifts, if we do not learn.
