Here I stand in this dark hallway. Everything has gone silent. I take a deep breath and I think about what I have done in the past to get to this point. I walk up and open the door.
- A Long Way Down
People go on about places like Starbucks being personal and all that, but what if that's what you want? I'd be lost if people like that got their way and there was nothing personal in the world. I like to know that there are big places without windows where no one gives a shit. You need the confidence to go into small places with regular customers... I'm happiest in the Virgin Megastore and Borders and Starbucks and Pizza Express, where no one gives a shit and no one knows who you are.
- What is this world
Do not mistake the worries of this world to be absolute. Everything is temporary. This day is temporary. This job, this work, these people are all temporary. This life is temporary, This world and its every sting and every pleasure is temporary. This body is temporary. Life is temporary. Do you believe that muted patience through the most difficult time is the best remedy? This too shall pass.
- There is Only One
There is not two and not three. Certainly not four or more. There is Only One. There is just One who is in control and how can ever there me more? It is often said that the world is just one and there aren't any more and so then, explain to me the existence of the universes that do exist? Anything you can imagine already exists somewhere. And, know also that there is Only One. Does life make more sense now?
- Hamilton~Cabinet Battle #2
And the Pursue of Happiness, we fought for these ideals, we shouldn't settle for less. These are wise words enterprising our blah blah, don't act surprised you guys, cause' I wrote em! Oh, but Hamilton forgets, his plan without the government to soon states' debts. Now, place your bets onto who that benefits. The very seat of government where Hamilton sits. Not true! Oh, if the shoe fits, wear it. If New York's in debt, why should Virginia bear it? Uh, our debts are paid, I'm afraid, ...
- On Depression
Having spent at least five consecutive years of my life with depression I know it has changed me on a fundamental level; I am no longer comfortable in my own skin. I often find myself doing something innocuous, like making breakfast and then the existential dread hits me like a truck and I start questioning everything in my life again. Why do I do this? Who even am I? These incessant questions peck away at me until I am convinced that I am not human, and hyper aware of how little control I have.
Here I stay, by your side, no matter the cost. Your enemies will fear my wrath, your heart will feel my gentle touch. I am all that is and ever will be. I am yours, my love.
I may only be the silhouette of a shadow, limited in where I can be at your side. But I promise you that I will love you wholeheartedly until the bitter end.
- The Road
He'd had this feeling before, beyond the numbness and the dull despair. The world shrinking down about a raw core of parsible entities. The names of things slowly following those things into oblivion. Colors. The names of birds. Things to eat. Finally the names of things one believed to be true. More fragile than he would have thought. How much was gone already? The sacred idiom shorn of its referents and so if its reality.
Many people says they hate music, reading, movies, or video games. But that is simply not true. They have too many genres to possibly hate every single one of them.
- being vegan
I got into being vegan because I was simply looking to benefit from being more compassionate. I have since come to learn that it is an animal-based diet that is responsible for the overwhelming majority of cases of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, multiple sclerosis, and all kinds of other problems.

- Falling into Love
Well, now, really when we back into falling in love. And say, it's crazy. Falling. You see? We don't say "rising into love." There is in it, the idea of the fall. And it goes back, as a matter of fact, to extremely fundamental things. That there is always a curious tie at some point between the fall and the creation. Taking this ghastly risk is the condition of there being life. You see, for all life is an act of faith and an act of gamble.
- Blast Off
Take a long green break out in my backyard. Relax with the sounds of nature and let go of all typing stresses. The world melts away in a rainbow of colors. The stress lifts off like the Falcon Heavy form the minds launchpad. The troubling thoughts of typing fade away. They drift endlessly in the happy void of space.
At some point in your life, you're going to have to start demanding what you deserve and be willing to walk away if what you require can't be provided.
- Jormungad (Koko Hekmatyar)
Remember what you said before? A normal person with a gun will wind up doing something he never thought himself capable of? No one in this world can truly hold himself separate from violence. Guns are literally within reach of anyone. Sadly, that's where we put our faith, in bullets rather than human kindness.
- Fairy Tail (Lucy Heartfilia)
I won't give up, I will fight 'til the bitter end, cause there's no way I will back down after what you did to my friends. They are what made me the person I am today, that's why I'll keep fighting. For my friends!
Thich Nhat Hanh
Do not think that the knowledge you presently possess is changeless, absolute truth. Avoid being narrow-minded and bound to present views. Learn and practice non-attachment from your views in order to be open to receive other's viewpoints. Truth is found in life and not merely in conceptual knowledge. Be ready to learn throughout your entire life and to observe reality in yourself and in the world at all times.
Once upon a time, there was a fox. This fox had one hundred legs. It was thirty centimeters long, and it enjoyed crawling on branches in the jungle. The jungle that it lived in had trees that went far above its head. It was from one of these trees that a bird came to eat it.
- When you get arrested
You have the right to remain silent. If you do say anything, what you say can be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to consult with a lawyer and have that lawyer present during any questioning. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be appointed for you if you so desire.
