It’s now very common now to hear people say, ‘I’m rather offended by that,’ as if it gives them certain rights; it’s actually nothing more … it’s simply a whine. It’s no more than a whine.
‘I find that offensive,’ it has no meaning, it has no purpose, it has no reason to be respected as a phrase.
‘I am offended by that,’ . . . well so fucking what?

—Stephen Fry

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not here; I did not die.

—Mary Elizabeth Frye

Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but, when we look back everything is different.
