Without LOVE in the dream it will never come true!
It takes dynamite to get me up
Too much of everything is just enough
One more thing that I just gotta say
I need a miracle every day
'In a deeply experienced life,
things are always entering us.
I think this is wonderful.
The mountain goes inside us.
The table goes inside.
The river goes inside.
The words go inside.
All of our immediate experience goes inside us...
and simply vanishes.
Isn't that beautiful?
Isn't that enough?'
What if one's passion is illegal? Might it be better to just be sane then?
'That she had so completely recovered her sanity was a source of sadness to her. One should never be cured of one's passion.'
- Marguerite Duras
'I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go.'
- Anaïs Nin
So what's his point? I guess context matters (sometimes).
"Hey, sometimes life is a shit flavored Popsicle."
- Carl Hiaasen, Nature Girl
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
― Ernest Hemingway
'Reject expressed belief - and exchange it for the possibility of genuine change. The believers' formula is a deception and they are deceived - which is a negation of their purpose. Faith is denial, and the metaphor for faith is idiocy, hence it always fails. To make their power more secure, governments force religion down the throats of their slaves, and it always succeeds. Few people escape it. When faith perishes, the "Self" comes into it's own.'
- Austin Osman Spare
