Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

“Someday after mastering winds, waves, tides and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love. And then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will discover fire.”

Playlist pieces

if your hopes scatter like the dust across your track, i’ll be the moon that shines on your path. the sun may blind our eyes; i’ll pray the skies above for snow to fall on the sahara.

...

is there anything worth looking for worth loving for worth lying for is there anything worth waiting for worth living for worth dying for

"Everything counts a little more than we think..."

It’s impossible to see anything exactly as it is. We look at everything through physical, mental, emotional lenses, maybe also spiritual and metaphysical lenses.

This does not negate the existence of Truth, but does indicate there’s more that composes it than simply its object.

And compartmentalization may be practical and sometimes efficient, but it is never ultimately true; everything, everything, everything is connected.

A dream about a huge video game arcade center.. Possibly run by Indians or similar… many colored lights in a darkened environment.. crowded and successful.. impersonal and meaningless.. And I fell on deaf ears but I shared anyway…why do I do that, knowing..?

More important to me than product and popularity are trust, loyalty, comfort, community, involvement and personal investment.

Paths are much clearer and more meaningful when allegiances are defined and sincere. Wherever one walks, should know what/whom to stand by.

why we can't mind-read

slated in mused at 8:06 pm

Humans live on secrets, hidden thoughts.

We plan, we bide our time, we consider our words and carry private dialogues. We count on our discourses being heard only by selected recipients, and tailor our messages accordingly.

If everyone — or even one person — could see/hear/feel what we were thinking/feeling all the time, it would change everything.

How much is too much? I’ve been playing with that question for years now, and I’ve decided that the question doesn’t matter. The cost for something can be too much and still be worth paying, or still be paid regardless of its worth.

Random entries spur/spawn rambles

slated in moments, mused at 4:18 pm

Ferrydust went on a religious kick this morning, giving me the following two articles (from random entries links from the sidebar): Would you choose contentment…? and That God believes in suffering. And, actually, they’re both from the same week.. so is it the subject or the time period I should be looking at, if I’m looking for deeper meaning?

Is I am Legend supposed to be a vampire story? Cuz I don’t see it. I haven’t read the book, though, so perhaps I’m missing the original portrayal? The movie’s definitely not a vampire story. Just because the monsters have sharp teeth and beget other monsters and are hurt by light does not make them vampires.

Very stressful movie. All of it. Lonely and hurt and angry and determined and desperate and hopeful and hopeless.. Always anticipating something monstrous jumping out at any moment.. ruhlly stressful. Moving, though. I’m confused by the end of it. I mean, it ended well…as far as endings go.. But.. I know it’s all “who are we to question” and what not,… I’m not there yet.. ::thinking::

What do our gravitations and small choices, like favorite things, say about us? Our song and scarf preferences?
Is it in the title? the lyrics, or the tune? the colors, material, or dimensions?
Patterns?..?

I believe in choice. ‘Doesn’t mean I want to be the one making all of them.

I believe in being responsible to oneself. That does not mean disregarding the values and hopes of others for me.

revisions and gaps in history

If one remembers only after weeks or months have passed, then what is left to be moved or hurt by?
If something can wait, it can probably keep waiting.

Patience can be overrated.
But sincerity… there seems to be a solid place for that.
