broken mirror - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Society can only function when we honestly mirror one another. We can have two mirrors of emotional indifference in a dog eat dog world, a hell. We can have two mirrors of love in a cooperative world, a heaven. My trick is to hold both kinds of mirrors in my heart and see whom each reflects, treating them accordingly; for otherwise the mirror of love is shattered by icy paranoias over time and the mirror of coldness becomes seen as a bleak truth. I wish I could go back to that time of childhood innocence, the time when mirroring love was enough, but this world is far to messed up for that and I owe a duty of protection to the young.
In the fragments of the broken mirror I see your soul in splinters, though you believe I am the one so scattered; only two perfect mirrors make perfect reflections of one another and the difference is clear to the trained eye.
When the kind can see the broken mirror, the con is exposed in all its nakedness.
