"Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life."

"What is an artist without a muse?
It rests like a church without any pews.
Like the words of a poet that never were spoken,
Like love in a heart that’s yet to be broken.

But there’s a riddle in my soul, to […]"

"What is an artist without a muse?
It rests like a church without any pews.
Like the words of a poet that never were spoken,
Like love in a heart that’s yet to be broken.
I am sure of myself; I know that to be true;
But there’s a riddle in my soul, to which I have no clue.
I’ve simplified philosophies and identified psychologies;
I understand the mass of men as I’ve lived the life of most of them.
I spent my youth a changeling—never once the same thing;
Not because of an interesting that is fleeting,
But rather, a subconscious method of understanding:
A poet, prophet, scientist and teacher,
Student, lover, drunkard and preacher,
Hero, pacifist, failure and warrior,
Jester, leader, guardian and lawyer.
Sinner, hero, gambler and performer—
I learned through experience as a transformer.
One man in the morning, and another man at night;
I played the role of a thousand men to learn of wrong and right.
For wisdom does not stem from speculation,
Nor is learned just by contemplation.
It cannot be taught through consultation,
Nor can it be found inside conversation;
But rather, it comes with a type of relation;
And also with time, and much observation.
I made it an art, and almost a trade, to never reveal my ace of spades.
It’s true, but a shame, that life really is a game
And if you don’t play your cards, then who’s left to blame?
And there’s royal flush that’s bursting at the seems,
But I have yet to find my queen:
A woman whose spirit holds an unmatched veneration;
A woman that I cannot find in this generation.
It has left me with wonder and left me asunder;
For life without love, is simply a blunder."

"As a child I'd always here the phrase, "Inconvenient truth". 'Oh don't go down that road, you'll face an "inconvenient truth".' Or, "If you don't follow God, you'll be at war with the "inconvenient truth".' And I began to wonder, what is that inconvenient truth no one wishes to face? […]"

"As a child I'd always here the phrase, "Inconvenient truth". 'Oh don't go down that road, you'll face an "inconvenient truth".' Or, "If you don't follow God, you'll be at war with the "inconvenient truth".' And I began to wonder, what is that inconvenient truth no one wishes to face? Are they afraid? What would constitute a truth to be such as inconvenient? As I found out, it turns out, that inconvenient truth is death. There comes a moment of realization . A moment where every illusion and delusion that the mind lays upon you disbands. A moment where you finally feel the depth of your being, the true nature of your mind is exposed. A moment where one finally is taught what it means to be human, to live now and not later. A moment where one finally reaches their sky-like potential and begins to soar through the lies, the deceiving eyes, and the hateful cries. It is a moment of clarity, a moment of eternal love, and pure existence and awareness. It is the most profound moment that one can experience. It is the moment that changes you. So why, must I ask, is that truth so inconvenient to face directly? Most people face that truth one their death beds, lying in agony that their lives were too short, too ordinary, too misused. It is now I tell you, to face the inconvenient truth, now; for now is all you may have."

"Dear journalists! (Both here AND in Norway.)

You are so enourmosly powerful, I don't think you have any idea how muh power there is in your words and your pictures. Please!!! Stop creating pictures of demons, stop digging even deeper ditches of pure hate, stop letting people live in total unawerness of the fact that there is so much good in the people on the other side. Please! Use your power to destroy predjudice, use your power to build HOPE for, WILLINGNESS to and BELIEF IN PEACE!

PS: The Truth is bad enough the way it is, there is no reason to make it even worse. And NO, although it feels like that sometimes - the Truth is NOT without hope.
