Something People Fail To Appreciate

There are some things that I have noticed that people fail to appreciate. I want you to read these next few lines and really think about them before I tell you what I think others sometimes fail to notice. I want you to think about your opinions on this, and whether or not you agree.

The most interesting characters are dislikable, yet not the villain.

The most beautiful paintings depict terrible things.

The most pleasurable music always has an undertone of raucous sound accompanied by more melodious tunes.

The most remarkable and spectacualar stories are full of hardship and challenges, and not have completely happy endings.

The most amazing people are far, far from perfect.

What I'm trying to say is that the best things in the world are not perfect or great or anything of the like, but that's exactly what makes them so amazing, which not many people seem to agree with or even notice. I know people who are just wonderful, but they are well flawed. Truly uplifting stories never end happily.

Seriously, I don't even know exactly what I'm writing, but I've found it annoying that people don't enjoy the imperfect enough, and I've been thinking about it all week, and I remembered that I had a blog, and this is what it was for--it's a place to spew out random, poorly organized ideas. And so, I apologize for not being able to word this well, my stream of conscienceness, and I publish this without a care, fear, and without reading this over again.

Your Future Asylum Resident,

P.S. Please leave a comment if you have any response to this whatsoever (e.g. you agree, you disagree, you have no idea what I'm talking about, etc...) or at least to let me know that you got the main concept of it all.

I would say "some of the most" for all of those, because I don't think all of the most are included in that (at least for me personally). Except for people. Everyone is flawed - so real people are going to be flawed in some way, even if they are the hero (in real life or in a story).

You totally make sense!
