Writing Prompt: “Darkness Cannot Drive Out Darkness” Quote

MLK Quote

Only bad can be destroyed by good and only hate can be driven out by love. That is very true because the only way to destroy one thing is to do the opposite of said thing. That is the only way we’ll be able to live in a peaceful world.

You can’t drive out darkness with darkness because all that’ll do is bring about more darkness. Instead, you have to bring light into the world to push the darkness away. This can be done through doing good deeds to show that the world isn’t as dark of a place as people think.

The same can be said for hatred and love too. The only way to cast hatred out is by showing love. This can be accomplished by being compassionate and kind to the people around you, even the people trying to bring about chaos. By showing these types of feelings, positive change can be brought into the world.

But there is a problem with our society to where doing this is easier said than done. There is currently too much darkness in the world that even if people change their actions, it won’t be enough to encompass all of the bad. Because there are some bad people too who will never show light and love, being able to get rid of it all will be impossible.

But that’s okay too. Because while there is still light and love in the world, there is hope for a better and brighter future for us all. So while there is still darkness and hate, continue to fight it anyway and do the best you can to extinguish it. Only once you have given up will we be unable to fight it anymore. So do the best you can and only good things will be sure to come your way.

Writing Prompt: “Sometimes You Just Got To Stay Silent” Quote

Sometimes You Got To Stay Silent Quote

So true. My thoughts are really crazy sometimes. I don’t know what my mind is thinking half the time because it doesn’t make sense. One minute, I’ll be really happy, thinking about something I really enjoy. But in an instant, that happiness can quickly be taken away whenever something that makes me angry or frustrated happens.

But at the same time, silence can be golden. It can get a message across way quicker than saying something you might later on regret. It can convey what words can’t without you having to worry about whether you got your point across. I often deal with silence whenever I find myself dealing with someone who irritates or frustrates me. Often with people who’ve hurt me in some way because I usually don’t want to deal with them.

Silence is a good way of conveying to someone you have no words for them because you don’t want to say exactly what’s on your mind. Oftentimes, I find myself not talking to people who’ve hurt me afterwards because I know what I want to say. But I also know that if I say exactly what I’m thinking, it’ll hurt them and I’ll regret it.

So instead, I keep my words close to my heart and wonder how differently things could’ve gone if I’d only just spoken my mind.

Writing Prompt: “Happiness in the Darkest of Times” Quote


Albus Dumbledore Harry Potter Quote

Yay, I get to talk about one of my favorite quotes from Harry Potter! How exciting!

Anyway, I think this quote strongly speaks to me on so many levels. It reminds me that even when things get really bad, there can be happiness in the moment, you just have to go and look for it.

When things seem rough and you don’t know what to do, you have to think about the things that really matter to you. These things are what will brighten your day, make everything that seems horrible disappear. For me, these things are writing, reading, coloring, video games, family, friends and music. Whenever I feel down as if nothing in my life will ever get better, I do one of these things to keep my mind off what’s bothering me and my mood immediately shifts.

I start to feel like myself again. As if every matter that’s bugging me isn’t important and that everything will be alright. Even when I try and tell myself over and over again that it isn’t okay, that I’ll never get better, I push through. I make the most of every moment and try my best to stay away from the negative thoughts clouding my head.

This quote makes me believe again. Believe that there is magic in the world, you just have to go and find it. That even in the darkest hallways, there is a light that just needs to be turned on to brighten the place. That happiness might seem impossible, out of reach, but once you are able to find a moment that makes you laugh, you will be alright again.

In the end, you need to see the good in everything, even if the bad tries really hard to take over. Just think of the things you love and you’ll be alright.
