03: A short letter written with sincerity will touch the recipient's heart, whereas, a long, elaborate letter written without sincerity will not.

04: A gift given with true sincerity is precious.

05: Whether in person or by phone, a message conveyed with a heart of sincerity will be favorably accepted.

06: Your sincerity is reflected in everything you do; the way you look... walk... talk... smile.

07: Superficial people lacking in sincerity are not trusted or accepted by others.

08: True sincerity can be appreciated not only by Kami and people, but by all living creatures.

09: A guilty conscience is a warning from Kami that your decisions of current actions lack sincerity.

10: Insincere people reveal their lack of sincerity in the way that they laugh, walk, and talk. Those who lack sincerity should be ashamed of themselves, and need to deepen their sincerity.

11: If you live your life with true sincerity, you will feel happy, have a clear conscience and peace of mind; your presence will be a pleasure to those around you and to Kami. Firmly believe that anything is possible with wholehearted sincerity.

12: Be of true sincerity. Your sincerity can be seen in all you do.

do not fall in love with people like me.
i will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. i will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. and when i leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people.

Calm down John Green

'do not fall in love with people like me'

No thanks OP, I prefer to destroy myself on my own time. you know how it goes
