To thine own self be true

"Nobody wants to look like an idiot.And if I am ignorant,I'll just nod my empty head like a spring neck dog in back window of '63 malibu.
Cuz I would hate for you to think my mouth is tied to nothing and my brain has gone to sleep.I'd hate for you to find out that I am not cool."


Know thyself

*Do you remember the last time you had an idea?I dont,I bet you dont either.I'have never had an original thought.Not last weak,last month,last year.Not ever.But I am gonna put words on paper and carry that shit to coffee house,stick out my chest and try to convince you I am really something.I dont need my brain anymore.*

life and such

"sometimes you don't need a goal in life, you don't need to know the big picture. you just need to know what you're going to do next!"

— Sophie Kinsella (The Undomestic Goddess)

Are you listening?

"Here's what I think, Mr. Wind-Up Bird," said May Kasahara. "Everybody's born with some different thing at the core of their existence. And that thing, whatever it is, becomes like a heat source that runs each person from the inside. I have one too, of course. Like everybody else. But sometimes it gets out of hand. It swells or shrinks inside me, and it shakes me up. What I'd really like to do is find a way to communicate that feeling to another person. But I can't seem to do it. They just don't get it. Of course, the problem could be that I'm not explaining it very well, but I think it's because they're not listening very well. They pretend to be listening, but they're not, really. So I get worked up sometimes, and I do some crazy things."

— Haruki Murakami (The Wind-up Bird Chronicle)

pursuit of happiness

"I'm thinking that sometimes you just have to make the decision to be happy. Just realize that things aren't ever what you hoped they'd be. Not ever. For anybody. The only thing that separates one kind of person from another is that there are some who stay angry about it and there are some who accept what comes their way."
