  1. To compensate for things you feel are not your fault is very hard. However, sometimes you have to swallow your own opinions and take the time to listen to someone else, as long as you’re still true to yourself.

  5. People who work hard must be compensated, we all know that.
    However, that is not always the case; the ones who work the most are forgotten in favor of those who don’t do much, but talk a lot.
    This is when inequality manifests itself. Inadequate compensation causes a rift in society.
    I will always try to compensate a person if he or she has done something worthy of mention. If I compensate a person that will make that person feel appreciated. That person will strive to improve herself so I will compensate her again. Society in general will improve.

  9. you cannot compensate lost time
    with routine and wool over eyes,
    nor can you apologize to fractures
    in accidental smiles and rhyme.

    Flowers do not bloom with just the sun,
    and I will not live on just (your) whims,
    because my lungs are too full of life to sink.

  13. compensation is giving up something that normally other would not give up. Does this necessarily mean that everyone should give up something? Would one give up hatred for love and what are the benefits of doing so? comp-en-sate – completely giving in to help others? isn’t that similar to

  14. He was weak, he thought, taking out the first glass shard from his arm, vulnerable (another shard), utterly pathetic (a bigger shard), a disgrace (oh, God, that one really hurt). He had no way to fix his flaw, but he could learn to compensate. He also had to pay for that damned window.

  15. “I can’t compensate for your mistakes,” I sigh, as she pleads me to lie for her. Why doesn’t she see that I can’t. It’s too hard. She starts to cry and, although I knew this would happen I nod. “I’ll do it, fine, but just this last time,”
