IT’S MY LIFE

“My soul is impatient with itself, as with a bothersome child; its restlessness keeps growing and is forever the same. Everything interests me, but nothing holds me. I attend to everything, dreaming all the while. […]. I’m two, and both keep their distance — Siamese twins that aren’t attached.” 

“We all have two lives: The true, the one we dreamed of in childhood And go on dreaming of as adults in a substratum of mist; the false, the one we love when we live with others, the practical, the useful, the one we end up by being put in a coffin.” 

“LIVE YOUR LIFE. DON’T BE LIVED BY IT. RIGHT OR WRONG, HAPPY OR SAD, BE YOUR OWN SELF. YOU CAN DO THIS ONLY BY DREAMING, BECAUSE YOUR REAL LIFE, YOUR HUMAN LIFE, IS THE ONE THAT DOESN’T BELONG TO YOU BUT TO OTHERS. YOU MUST REPLACE YOUR LIFE WITH YOUR DREAMING, CONCENTRATING ONLY ON DREAMING PERFECTLY. IN ALL THE ACTS OF YOUR REAL LIFE, FROM THAT OF BEING BORN TO THAT OF DYING YOU DON’T ACT – YOU ARE ACTED; YOU DON’T LIVE – YOU ARE MERELY LIVED”

“Life is an experimental journey undertaken involuntarily. It is a journey of the spirit through the material world and, since it is the spirit that travels, it is the spirit that is experienced. That is why there exist contemplative souls who have lived more intensely, more widely, more tumultuously than others who have lived their lives purely externally.” 

“To be great, be whole;

Exclude nothing, exaggerate nothing that is not you.

Be whole in everything. Put all you are

Into the smallest thing you do.

So, in each lake, the moon shines with splendor

Because it blooms up above.” 

– FErnando Pessoa

BON JOVI – IT’S MY LIFE

“But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.”

― Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

“The worst is not death but being blind, blind to the fact that everything about life is in the nature of the miraculous. The language of society is conformity; the language of the creative individual is freedom. Life will continue to be a hell as long as people who make up the world shut their eyes to reality.”

― Henry Miller, Stand Still Like the Hummingbird

“I am not eccentric. It’s just that I am more alive than most people. I am an unpopular electric eel set in a pond of catfish.”

― Edith Sitwell

“Take it all back. Life is boring, except for flowers, sunshine, your perfect legs. A glass of cold water when you are really thirsty. The way bodies fit together. Fresh and young and sweet. Coffee in the morning. These are just moments. I struggle with the in-betweens. I just want to never stop loving like there is nothing else to do, because what else is there to do?”

― Pablo Neruda

“Those who are too lazy and comfortable to think for themselves and be their own judges obey the laws. Others sense their own laws within them.”

― Hermann Hesse, Demian

“Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness. And they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy… or they become legend. ”

― Jim Harrison

People Who Say It Cannot Be Done Should Not Interrupt Those Who Are Doing It

QUEEN – DON’T STOP ME NOW

“The only cats worth anything are the cats that take chances.”

“A genius is the one most like himself.”

— Thelonious Monk
