“Life whispers to us all the time… Find a quiet spot in the middle of the turbulence. Go to a quiet place within your soul and stay there for a short while. Do not rant and rave at the problem. Just go to this spot and let your fears be calmed, even for a moment. Don’t listen to the call of the problem but, rather, listen for a few seconds to the song of your soul.” John Harricharan

“The day will come when you will review your life and be thankful for every minute of it. Every hurt, every sorrow, every joy, every celebration, every moment of your life will be a treasure to you, for you will see the utter perfection of the design. You will stand back from the weaving and see the tapestry, and you will weep at the beauty of it..” -Neale Donald Walsch

“Oh soul, you worry too much. You have seen your own strength. You have seen your own beauty. You have seen your golden wings. Of anything less, why do you worry? You are in truth, the soul, of the soul, of the soul.” — Rumi

Rivers belong where they can ramble,
Eagles belong where they can fly!
I’ve got to be, where my spirit can run free!
Gotta find my corner… of the sky!
-Pippin (the musical)

What do the old people teach us except how to die!
What do those hissy fits teach you except how to cry!
Cry! Pussy! Cry! Yeah!
The futile, the futile, it outweighs the beautiful!
-Say Anything (The Futile)
___
Love ain’t for the faint of heart
Start Training, this game is hard
And arduous
You’re gonna play in the dark like when it rains in the park
You’re hardly conscious of the stains and scars
enabling your partly clouded logic
To pay to impart bliss with arrangements of chocolates, now
You’re working yourself out the same as when you strain with a nautilus
And you’re willing to embrace pain facing sustained negative consequence
If nothing you say when in love is embedded with common sense
Then, do you really regret when you’ve shredded your promises now?

And I can’t die without trying, my hands tied in knots
Knowing that I’ll never learn to brave the waves if I stand by the docks
Love is hampered by thought, if you can handle the prospect of
Death – it’s as massive a shock
And to intellects, it’s a fuckin’ smack in the crotch
It’s a cancer that rots your soul, tosses demons off of the road
Just use caution and know, that
love ain’t nothing but a loss of control
Off then, we go
-Cunninlynguists (Love Ain’t feat Tonedeaf)

Alan Turing is a personal hero of mine, I recently visited Bletchley park where he helped solve the enigma codes in world war two and cried when I got to his office.

His epitaph reads:

“Hyperboloids of wondrous Light
Rolling for aye through Space and Time
Harbour those Waves which somehow Might
Play out God’s holy pantomime”

The Doors: Moonlight Drive

Let’s swim to the moon,
Let’s climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin’ that the
City sleeps to hide

Let’s swim out tonight, love
It’s our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive

Let’s swim to the moon,
Let’s climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side
Nothin’ left open and no time to… decide
We’ve stepped into a river
On our moonlight drive

Let’s swim to the moon
Let’s climb through the tide
You reach your hand to hold me but I… can’t be your guide
Easy, I love you
As I watch you glide
Falling through wet forests
On our moonlight drive, baby
Moonlight drive

Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride
Down, down by the ocean side
Gonna get real close
Get real tight
Baby gonna drown tonight
Goin’ down, down, down

You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there. ~Bob Marley

A slut is not a girl who does every guy she sees. A slut is who acts like going to do them, but at the end does not. Yet, that is not her fault. That is that guys fault who can not make it happen. Therefore, there are no sluts in the world. ~ Can Yücel Metin

Pam: Its not about who you been with. Its about who you end up with. [ The Office ]

All of our unhappiness comes from our inability to be alone. ~ Jean de la Bruyere

Nobody really cares if you’re miserable, so you might as well be happy. ~ Cynthia Nelms

Old man sits at his desk
One year from retirement,
And he’s up for review
Not quite sure what to do
Each passing year
The workload grows

I’m always wishing, I’m always wishing too late
For things to come my way
It always ends up the same
Count your blessings
I must be missing, I must be missing the point
Your signal fades away and all I’m left with is noise
Count your blessings on one hand

So wait up, I’m not sleeping alone again tonight
There’s so much to dream about, there must be more to my life

Poor little tin man still swinging his axe,
Even though his joints are clogged with rust

My youth is slipping, my youth is slipping away
Safe in monotony, so safe, day after day
Count your blessings
My youth is slipping, my youth is slipping away
Cold wind blows off the lake, and I know for sure that it’s too late
Count your blessings on one hand

So wait up, I’m not sleeping alone again tonight
There’s so much to dream about, there must be more to my life

Can’t help but feel betrayed, punch the clock every single day
There’s no loyalty and no remorse
Youth sold for a pension cheque
And it makes him fucking sick
He’s heating up, he can’t say no

So wait up, I’m not sleeping alone again tonight,
There’s so much to dream about, there must be more to my life.
So wait up
So wait up I’m not sleeping alone again tonight
Between the light and shallow waves is where I’m going to die
Wait up for me
