Encounter

We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.

About love…from an atheist

thats_hottLove can’t be pinned down by a definition & it certainly can’t be proven. Can’t be proven as anything else important in life.
Love is people, love…..is a person.
Love is not an emotion.  It is a policy.

as an advice…

geishs av 5 memoirsI simply ask you to see that there is only one thing to do when we fall, and that is to get up, and go on with the life that is set in front of us, and try to do the good of which are hands are capable for the people who come in our way.

On faith

You can never really know someone completely. That’s why it’s the most terrifying in the world, really taking someone on faith, hopping they’ll take you on faith, too. It’s such a precarious balance, it’s a wonder we do it at all. And yet…

Choices

watterfallChoices. We were back to that, the things that determine the course of your life. Was it that simple? Some of us are high risk and some of us low? Some of us made bad choices and some of us made wise ones? And these choices determined whether we were happy or miserable, healthy or unhealthy, loved or unloved? I had to wonder. What informed these choices? The obvious answer is our parents, the people who loved or didn’t love us, raised us well or poorly. There were other factors, of course. But did it just come down to whether someone loved us enough to teach us how to make the right choices for ourselves?
No. It’s not that simple. Life never is….how you were raised is part of the big picture. It’s one important factor in a million. But in the end, it’s not just the big and small events that make you who you are, make you life what it is, it’s how you choose to react to them. There where you have control over your life. I believe that.

Emptines of words

___a_sea_of_dreams_by_foureyesFaptele oamenilor sunt ca pietrele aruncate in apa. Cand arunci o piatra in apa, se aude un zgomot mare si apa se agita, dar dupa o clipa, suprafata apei este din nou neteda si nu se vede nici o urma pe care piatra sa o fi lasat. La fel se intampla si cu memoria oamenilor. Cu timpul, toti iti vor fi uitat numele si faptele.

Vise

Posted in quotes, writing with tags , , , , on 08/06/2009 by Stripped

dreamsNu e om care sa nu viseze. Visam tot felul de lucruri. Si lucrurile acestea par adevarate numai in timpul somnului. Atunci cand te trezesti, vezi limpede ca numai unele sunt adevarate, altele doar cu putinta si a treia parte cu totul in afara de adevar. Cu toate acestea, se intampla adeseori ca ele sa se adevereasca, sa devina realitate. Multi dam crezare viselor…multi punem temei pe ele cum am pune pe orice lucru vazut aievea. De aceea, ele, visele, ne intristeaza sau ne bucura. Altii dintre noi, dimpotriva, nu credem in nici un vis…asta poate pana acand ajungem sa ne convingem de contrariu… Eu insa nu ii sustin nici pe cei ce cred in vise, nici pe cei ce nu cred…pentru ca nici visele nu sunt intotdeauna adevarate, cum nu sunt nici intotdeauna false.
Sunt si multe vise pe care nu le putem intelege, carora nu stim sa le dam interpretare si uneori, nu fac decat sa ne induca in eroare…Vise care sunt influentate de dorinte, temeri, ganduri din timpul zilei…sau de ceea ce urmeaza sa se intample.
S-ar spune ca unele vise se adeveresc la 3 saptamani dupa ce ai visat. Dar pentru unii din noi, e de preferabil ca asta sa nu se intample. Nu e bine a sti dinainte. Asta te face sa visezi si mai mult…te face sa crezi ca nu a fost doar o simpla intamplare…desi cam asta e mereu….
