"I don't know if you have found this yet but for me it's like you reach the point where your accumulated knowledge is there and you realise: actually, I don't know the answer to much at all anymore. Because I've accumulated so much that has contradicted what I thought, or what I thought I thought, along the way, that I'm beginning now to ask more questions rather than think I have got answers to anything. I now accept that I know nothing.
Looking back you always wanted things explained. You wanted to know things, to have a stance on something or the option of a stance.
Now I want the opposite of that. I want to keep the discussion open. I don't want to limit it. I don't want to close it down like that. I'm not into closing my life down at all. I want to embrace knowing nothing."
- Cosey Fanni Tutti
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.”
