Thought provoking quotes...

OK, so I collected quite a few of some of my favorite quotes over the past year, and I'd like to share them now. Here goes:

But what am I?
An infant crying in the night:
An infant crying for thr light:
And with no language but a cry.
--Alfred Lord Tennyson

And their sun does never shine,
And their fields are bleak and bare,
And their ways are filled with thorns:
It is eternal winter there.
--William Blake

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
--Aesop

Cruelty, very far from being a vice, is the first sentiment Nature injects into us all. Absurd then to maintain cruelty is a consequence of depravity... Cruelty is simply the energy in a man civilization has not yet altogether corrupted: therfore it is a virtue, not a vice.
--Marquis de Sade

Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other.
--Rainer Maria Rilke

Hush! My dear, lie still and slumber.
Holy angels guard thy bed!
Heavenly blessings without number
Gently falling on thy head.
--Isaac Watts

Poetry by Marilyn Monroe

I could have loved you once
and even said it
But you went away,
When you came back it was too late
And love was a forgotten word.
Remember?




O, Time
Be Kind
Help this weary being
To forget what is sad to remember
Loose my loneliness,
Ease my mind,
While you eat my flesh.




I

I left my home of green rough wood,
A blue velvet couch.
I dream till now
A shiny dark bush
Just left of the door.
Down the walk
Clickity clack
As my doll in her carriage
Went over the cracks-
"We'll go far away."

II

Don't cry my doll
Don't cry
I hold you and rock you to sleep
Hush hush
I'm pretending now
I'm not your mother who died.

III

Help help
Help I feel life coming closer
When all I want to do is die.




From time to time
I make it rhyme
but don't hold that kind
of thing
against
me-
Oh well, what the hell,
so it won't sell.
What I want to tell-
is what's on my mind:
'taint Dishes,

A Clockwork Orange (my fave quotes)

“We study the problem. We’ve been studying it for damn well near a century, yes, but we get no further with our studies. You’ve got a good home here, good loving parents. You’ve got not too bad of a brain! Is it some devil that crawls inside of you?” 

"Then I looked at its top sheet, and there was the name -A CLOCKWORK ORANGE- and I said: 'That's a fair gloopy title. Who ever heard of a clockwork orange?'" 

“Choice. The boy has no real choice, has he? Self-interest, the fear of physical pain drove him to that grotesque act of self-abasement. Its insincerity was clearly to be seen. He ceases to be a wrongdoer. He ceases also to be a creature capable of moral choice.” 

A lot of idiots you are, selling your own birthright for a saucer of cold porridge! The thrill of theft! Of violence! The urge to live easy! Well, I ask you what is it worth when we have undeniable truth, yes, incontrovertible evidence that Hell exists." 

"Excellent. He's enterprising, aggr…

Hello Kitty Is a Whore!

Hello Kitty Meow-Berry Pop-Tarts Monday, July 17th, 2006Hello Kitty is a whore!
Seriously, who would allow themselves to have their likeness on every possible conceivable product.
Some of you might say, “Hello Kitty doesn’t have a mouth, so she can’t say yes or no to what products she wants to endorse.”
My answer to that would be, “Well, Hello Kitty has a head, which she can use to nod for, “Yes, I really like the idea of a Hello Kitty sleeping bag,” or she can shake her in disagreement for, “No, I don’t want my face on a bowl of Hello Kitty dried ramen.”
Or if Hello Kitty REALLY didn’t want to have her likeness on something, she could throw her many bows at her agent or manager, which would instantly let that person know that, “NO! I don’t want my face to be on a Hello Kitty vibrator.”
But just like Kate Moss with cocaine, she just can’t say no, and that’s why I think Hello Kitty is a whore. Hello Kitty is like Martha Stewart, who has hundreds of products with her name on it. However, He…

ALICE- Cocteau Twins / Wonderland montage

Image
This is such a gorgeous song.  I love how it captures the wonder & the dark, yet beautiful and divine complexity of imagination and stirs the emotions.  I'm not sure if this song was written with "Alice In Wonderland" in mind per se, but it sure has become a representation of how we now perceive the character of Alice from Lewis Carroll's beloved story books.    I don't even really know what she is singing in the lyrics (suppose I should look them up?  lol) except for the name "Alice", but I choose to feel the song more than anything.  It literally gives me chills and brings me to a state of elation (one of the many benefits of being bipolar, haha).

OK, I looked up the lyrics and they are rather nonsensical.  But really, it's not the lyrics which make this song so powerful, but like I said, the feelings you will undergo just hearing it.  There are several videos made for this song (the most famous being from "The Lovely Bones"), but …

Astrology is not just a subject; it's an activity. Consequently, you don't study it - you do it.

Astrology is an activity based on the principle of Unus Mundus - the Universe as Unity. Everything - from atom to galaxy - is rooted in the same universal and all-pervasive reality. And this reality reveals itself in the purposeful, ordered and meaningful processes of nature, as well as in the deepest recesses of the human mind and spirit. 'As above - so below'. Anything happening in one part of the system gets mirrored in a self-similar way everywhere else.

Quantum Physics tells us that the very act of observing something changes it. And the Butterfly Effect of Chaos Theory shows how even the tiniest flap of a wing can eventually produce a hurricane. Upon examining my own life, I can see how the slightest shifts of direction have led me down some very divergent paths and presented me with infinitely strange and beautiful experiences. But the most satisfying and successf…
