Sweeten That Aesop:

  • Whether you're human or an immortal being, pobody's nerfect.
  • Even demons are capable of love and compassion. They just need a little help.

  • You can't take responsibility for everyone else's happiness or unhappiness, so just chill the fork out and live a little.

  • It doesn't matter how good you are. If you're not an outright messiah, you're going to Hell anyway.
  • Adhering to any one philosophy or Character Alignment makes you either evil, stupid, miserable or all of the above.
  • Hosting charities and making the world a better place means absolutely nothing if you don't really mean it.
  • Humans are the center of the universe and every other sentient being in the universe revolves their entire eternal lives around our happiness or unhappiness.

  • Actions in a finite life deserve eternal torture regardless if its proportionate.
