Stolen Quotes from songs

If I told you things I did before,
Told you how I used to be,
Would you go along
with someone like me?

You were never supposed to leave,
Now my head's splitting at the seams
Radical face - Welcome home

Would you always? Maybe sometimes?
Make it easy? Take your time
Two Weeks - Grizzly Bear

Isn't life under the sun just a crazy dream?
Isn't life just a mirage of the world before the world?
Stillness of the move - Dirty projectors

All the words are gonna bleed from me
and I will think no more
And the stains coming from my blood tell me to go back home
Seven Nation Army - The white stripes

You are not ill and I'm not dead
Doesn't that make us a perfect pair?

You're resting on your laurels and
stepping on my toes
Whose side are you on?
What side is this anyway?

Success is so forbidding
But it makes me think I'm winning
Over and over again (Lost & Found) - Clap your hands and say Yeah

All your diction dripping with disdain
Through the pain, I always tell the truth

There were always golden rocks to throw
at those who admit defeat too late

People, they don't mean a thing to you
They move right through you
Just like your breath

It's bugging me, grating me,
and twisting me around
I'm endlessly caving in and
turning inside out

A Collective Post


"The ends justify the means." –Niccolò Machiavelli.
A more literal translation, according to Peter and Julia Bondanella of Indiana University, is "One must consider the final result."

Cognitive bias:

Fundamental attribution error: A tendency for people to over-emphasize personality-based explanations for behaviors observed in others while under-emphasizing the role and power of situational influences on the same behavior.

Operation Wrath of God:

After the Terrorist group Black September kidnapped and murdered 11 Israeli athletes during the Munich Olympics in 1972, the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad decided to seek revenge under Operation Wrath of God. During this time, covert Israeli assassination units killed dozens of suspected conspirators across Europe. The string of assassinations spurred retaliations and criticism of Israeli. The film Munich outlined these events.

The pleasure of the drunk

"Write drunk; edit sober" -Ernest Hemingway.

Inspiration is my warrior of light!
I've never been so inspired. It feels like I'm colored with all the colors that exist in our world and in different worlds. Like I'm walking through every thought I once abandoned and put on the shelf like an old book. Inspiration is like the hand that wipes the dust off abandoned books and cleans the shelf. The hand that takes yours and leads you to a path where everything is possible, where imagination is the air you breathe and words are the water you drink. Where ideas are palpable and every little thing triggers you to write.
It makes you walk down the street looking at everything just differently, not how your eyes perceive them on daily basis. You write poems on smiles, compose songs on laughs, draw the world on hope, and paint the sky on hand touches. It makes you so vulnerable to falling in love, in love with just anything and everything; the simplest things you would've never thought of. Moreover, it is your light to appreciate even the ugliest things, for their entity could one day be an inspiration to you, or any drunk-on-inspiration artist.
And then, you ponder. You realize that a look is a constellation, a tree is a haiku piece, sunset is love song, winter is Neruda and summer is Shakur. You get that you, mind, body, soul and heart are the element of what your imagination perceives. And your muse is your addiction.
And I'm addicted. I'm addicted to that imagination that makes me so weak before the pages of my notebook and the spaces on my blog. I'm addicted to words, to the laughs, to smiles, the sky, the sundown and sunrise, to strangers and friends, to colors and seasons, to darkness and light. I just can't get enough.
And finally that I'm drunk, I don't want to be sober ever again. It's a pleasure to be addicted.

P.S Neruda is Pablo Neruda, and Shakur is Tupac Shakur. Both poets of passion.

Pay it Forward and Beyond

You want to change the world, right? I know. We all know. We all have this dream in common, it's like the trait that is born with us. It's like an every-day habit. However, once it's a habit, it is usually forgotten and folded with every other daily act.
We always refuse to be satisfied with the smallest things lest they perish in no time; it's always the oceanic differences that we want to make, why? Because the more we give, the more we want. The more we sacrifice, the more we expect to be appreciated. Sadly, it's hardly measured this way.
It's the fact that whenever the sacrifice is built on expectations, failure is a must-and then comes point zero: dissatisfaction with everything we do just because failure won the battle. It's sad, it's so sad that failure to us is not an option; it's impossible to fail, it's impossible to not find reward for what we give. It's just shameful.
But if you think about it, every little thing you do gets the attention of someone, it just depends on what you choose to do. An act of kindness, a cuss, a smile, a song you play, a word you wrote, a joke, a fight, an attempt to understand people around you. It's the smallest things that we refuse to accept just because their impact is small on the surface.
However and in fact,
  • It's when you smile for an old man who has been in pain that you change a life.
  • When you tell a girl she's beautiful that you make her day.
  • When you call a friend just to say Hi that you are remembered forever.
  • It's when you do a random act of kindness to a stranger that you give them so much hope for a better future. (I just remembered the Pay It Forward project).
  • When you give a hug randomly and spontaneously.
  • When you give a hand to someone.
  • Tell someone that you think of them.
  • It's when you do to people without thinking of yourself nor of rewards.

Bit by bit. Everything will start small, and once you spread those acts of kindness, you have unimaginably changed a thousand lives. And in the end we all die leaving a thousand things unforgotten. We all change the world somehow. But to the worst or the best, you alone choose.

Thank you for reading, I've probably just changed a life myself! =)
