Interesting Finds

I love books. Libraries and bookstores just fascinate me. They are just filled with so much knowledge. Even shopping around on Amazon gets me all excited because there are books there that I can’t find in libraries or bookstores. Books are awesome!

The Beauty of Contrast in Life

In order for anything to exist, is contrast required?

Of course, it either exists, or it doesn’t.
This can also be referred to as dualism but I like contrast so I’ll roll with that.
