I, The Phantom's Scholar welcome you to my secret abode, The d’Aubigné Estate, the home of the damned angel .
I am a published poet and a fantasy tragedian in the making. I have experience in the art of creative writing as well as a background in journalism. I am currently pursuing advancement in my knowledge.
"The Good Sect is white and the Evil Sect is black. You're clean and I'm dirty. Do you really see the world in only those two colors? I see the world how it is: in shades of gray. Nothing is totally clean or dirty! Those who squabble over Good and Evil Sects merely do for their own self-interests!"
"People consider fear to be a weakness. But harnessing that fear can one day make you a mighty warrior!"
"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe."
"To be a literal person, you must know the story written by the man as well as the story behind the man."
"Remember, that if thou marry for beauty, thou bindest thyself all thy life for that which perchance will neither last nor please thee one year; and when thou hast it, it will be to thee of no price at all; for the desire dieth when it is attained, and the affection perisheth when it is satisfied."
"The more I study religions, the more I am convinced that man never worshiped anything but himself."
"Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music."
"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."
"If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner. "
"Vampires are sexy to a woman perhaps because the fantasy is similar to that of the man on the white horse sweeping her off to paradise."
"Some people are so afraid do die that they never begin to live."
"What is history but a fable agreed upon?"
"There are such beings as vampires, some of us have evidence that they exist. Even had we not the proof of our own unhappy experience, the teachings and the records of the past give proof enough for sane people."
"If it's natural to kill, how come men have to go into training to learn how?"
"War will never cease until babies begin to come into the world with larger cerebrums and smaller adrenal glands. "
"It is a scientific fact that your body will not absorb cholesterol if you take it from another person's plate."
"Speak when you are angry, and you will make the best speech you will ever regret."
"I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually."
"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime."
"The worst thing in this world, next to anarchy, is government."
"I have never met a vampire personally, but I don't know what might happen tomorrow."
"In every aspect of our lives, we are always asking ourselves, How am I of value? What is my worth? Yet I believe that worthiness is our birthright."
"Whatever you fear most has no power - it is your fear that holds the power.
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.
I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.
