fear, desire & hope on fire

cast some light and you'll be alright


Mirror, mirror on the wall /You've watched me grow since I was small / So what will I regret the most / The things I do or the things I don't? / The deeper you peer into my soul / You'll find that I already know / But I can't say it / Because I can barely face it / My life is halfway through / And I still haven't done/ What I'm here to do / Even though the chances flowed / I sat and watched the hours fold / In upon themselves / To stop their hands revealing / What I can't say / What I can barely face / My life is halfway through / And I still haven't done / What I'm here to do / My mummy said, What you give is what you get / And the only thing worth having / Is happiness

But trapped inside my bones
Fear / Desire
And hope are on fire
And will expand like smoke

And fall down like rain

Donnie: "Why do you wear that stupid bunny suit?"
Frank: "Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?"
-Donnie Darko

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Every seashell has a story to tell, if you're listening - They Might Be Giants, "Metal Detector"

We've all done terrible things to each other, but we have to forgive each other. Or everything we ever were will mean nothing. - Spiderman 3

I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can't generate. Life becomes stagnant. - Kevin Smith's Dogma

The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace. - The Late Great Prophet Bill Hicks

Vivir con miedo, es como vivir a medias! (A life lived in fear is a life half lived.) - Strictly Ballroom, still my favorite Baz Lurhmann film.

Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it. - Anais Nin

I never was attached to that great sect,
Whose doctrine is, that each one should select
Out of the crowd a mistress or a friend,
And all the rest, though fair and wise, commend
To cold oblivion...
Free love has this, different from gold and clay,
That to divide is not to take away.
- from Percy Bysshe Shelley's 'Epipsychidion'

Love brings us to who we need / A place where we can save / A heart that beats as both siphon and reservoir - Jeff Buckley, "Morning Theft"

For this is wrong, if anything is wrong:
not to enlarge the freedom of a love
with all the inner freedom one can summon.
We need, in love, to practice only this:
letting each other go. For holding on
comes easily; we do not need to learn it.
-from "Requiem" by Rainer Maria Rilke

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning how to dance in the rain. - Author unknown

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.

- from William Blake's 'Auguries of Innocence'

Faith means making a virtue out of not thinking. It's nothing to brag about. And those who preach faith and enable and elevate it are intellectual slaveholders keeping mankind in a bondage to fantasy and nonsense that has spawned and justified so much lunacy and destruction. Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don't have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it's wonderful when someone says, "I'm willing, Lord! I'll do whatever you want me to do!" Except that since there are no gods actually talking to us, that void is filled in by people with their own corruptions and limitations and agendas. - Bill Maher, Religulous

My atheism is true piety towards the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image, to be servants of their human interests. - George Santayana

I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let's evolve, let the chips fall where they may. - Fight Club
