“Hate is baggage. Life’s too short to be pissed off all the time.”
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”
“Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: ‘pati.’ It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.”
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.”
“Our wretched species is so made that those who walk on the well-trodden path always throw stones at those who are showing a new road.”
“Men really need sea-monsters in their personal oceans…An ocean without its unnamed monsters would be like a dreamless sleep.”
“Men can only be happy when they do not assume that the object of life is happiness.”
“If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.”
“There are things I can’t force. I must admit there are times when the greatest change needed is a change of my viewpoint.”
“Some people live for rules, I live for exceptions.”
“Words create lies. Pain can be trusted.”
“Too much perfection is a mistake.”
“Language bearers, photographers, diary makers; you with your memory are dead, frozen, lost in a present that never stops passing. Here lives the incantation of matter: a language forever like a flame burning away the darkness. Life is flesh on bone convulsing above the ground.”
“A film is an illusion, not a reality-fiction or a happening: it is a true work of fiction.”
“There is some fiction in your truth, and some truth in your fiction.”
“It is invariably saddening to look through new eyes at things upon which you have expended your own powers of adjustment.”
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
“The rush of battle is often a potent and lethal addiction, for war is a drug.”
“If nothing else, it’s life. It’s real, and sometimes it fucking hurts, but it’s sort of all we have.”
“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.”
“I believe that consciousness creates the illusion of individuation, the false feeling of being separate. In other words, I am aware, ergo I am alone. I further believe that this existential misunderstanding is the prime motivating force for the neurotic compulsion to blot out consciousness. This explains the paradox of our culture, which celebrates the ego while simultaneously promoting its evisceration with drugs and alcohol. It also clarifies our deep-seated fear of monolithic, one-minded systems like communism, religious fundamentalism, zombies and invaders from Mars. Each one is a dark echo of an oceanic state of unifying transcendence from which consciousness must, by nature, flee. The Fall from Grace is, in fact, a Sprint from Grace. Or perhaps more accurately, ‘Screw Grace, I am so outta here!'”
“The best way to get over a woman is to turn her into literature.”
