Quote of the week

Standard

Do people live in circles today?
No. They live in boxes. They wake up every morning in a box of their bedrooms because a box next to them started making beeping noises to tell them it was time to get up. They eat their breakfast out of a box and then they throw that box away into another box. Then they leave the box where they live and get into another box with wheels and drive to work, which is just another big box broken into little cubicle boxes where a bunch of people spend their days sitting and staring at the computer boxes in front of them. When the day is over, everyone gets into the box with wheels again and goes home to the house boxes and spends the evening staring at the television boxes for entertainment. They get their music from a box, they get their food from a box, they keep their clothing in a box, they live their lives in a box.
Break out of the box! This is not the way humanity lived for thousands of years.
— Elizabeth Gilbert, The Last American Man

Wake Up!!

Standard

It’s surprising how people blindly follow. How deeply they hail their political idols. How desperately they need something like religion to justify their life.
Honestly, if you would have leaded and treated yourself right, you wouldn’t have to be a mere follower. You wouldn’t have to die and kill others like fanatics. If only you would have embraced realism and logic, the way you turn head over heels for your religion and political parties, things would have been different, things would have been better.

Perfectly Imperfect

Standard

In a world full of imperfections find the beauty in mistakes, trials, and hard times. You are not a bad person because of mistakes you’ve made in the past. You are not broken because of tough things you’ve been through. You are perfectly imperfect, that’s what makes you human. Seeing through someone’s imperfections and loving one another (not just romantically but in any aspect) that’s the difference between being a negative person and a positive one. There are so many positive things that come from the negative parts of life. Embrace every aspect of life and love one another. There’s nothing more respectable than loving someone for who they are no matter where they’ve been or what they’ve gone through. Everyone needs to know they mean something to someone

Quote of the Week

Standard

I wish people enjoy poetry as much as hypocrisy. I wish they create art rather than wars. I wish they discuss atoms, aliens, sex, science, music instead of rating each other by ethnicity, religion and nationality. I wish they had a twisted mind who speak with emotion and kindness, not with hate and blindness.

Quote of the Week

“ Free love? As if love is anything but free! Man has bought brains, but all the millions in the world have failed to buy love. Man has subdued bodies, but all the power on earth has been unable to subdue love. Man has conquered whole nations, but all his armies could not conquer love. Man has chained and fettered the spirit, but he has been utterly helpless before love. High on a throne, with all the splendor and pomp his gold can command, man is yet poor and desolate, if love passes him by. And if it stays, the poorest hovel is radiant with warmth, with life and color. Thus love has the magic power to make of a beggar a king. Yes, love is free; it can dwell in no other atmosphere. In freedom it gives itself unreservedly, abundantly, completely. All the laws on the statutes, all the courts in the universe, cannot tear it from the soil, once love has taken root.” Emma Goldman
