i speak without speaking, please speak for me.

“The mind is its own place, and in itself, 
can make heaven of Hell, and a hell of Heaven.”
~ John Milton

I came across something last night I posted about a year ago in regards to things that might lend some insight into the tangled paradox that is my mind. I spend a lot of time writing about things from my point of view... it's kind of nice letting someone else say how I feel, for me. I figured it warranted a resuscitation...

“Do or do not, there is no try.”
~ Yoda

“Wise has awoken, and you know they say that you deserved it, 
whenever you die with your eyes open ...”
~ Jadakiss

“If you wanna make the world a better place,
take a look at yourself and make a change ...”
~ Michael Jackson

“We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics.
They will only grow louder and more dissonant.
We've been asked to pause for a reality check.
We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.
But in the unlikely story that is America,
there has never been anything false about hope”
~ Barack Obama

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.

“I told you that I was happy for you, and given the chance I'd lie again ...”
~ Tim McGraw

“I know that I am intelligent,
because I know that I know nothing.”
~ Socrates

“Here I go, losing my control.
I'm practicing your name so I can say it to your face.
It doesn't seem right, to look you in the eye.
Let all the things you mean to me, come tumbling out my mouth.
Indeed it's time to tell you why, I say it's infinitely true.”
~ Bic Runga

“When I say, "I love you,"
it's not because I want you or because I can't have you.
It has nothing to do with me.
I love what you are, what you do, how you try.
I've seen your kindness and your strength.
I've seen the best and the worst of you.
And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are.
You're a hell of a woman.”
~ Joss Whedon

“In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king”
~ Erasmus

“Back to that good old fashioned way of getting cash money by earning it.
No bogus hocus pocus, I bring back to focus.
Skills if you notice my position is lotus”
~ KRS-One

“With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink,
and my bended arm for a pillow;
I have still joy in the midst of these things.
Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness
are to me as a floating cloud” 
~ Confucious

“Though we both know that the worst part about it,
is I would be free when you wanted me
... if you wanted me”
~ John Mayer

“It's been a while since I've seen you so how have you been?
Did you get my letter I wrote you, but I did not send.”
~ Eliot Sloan (Blessid Union of Souls)

“Get busy living, or get busy dying...”
~ Andy Drufresne

“The true man wants two things – danger and play.
Therefore he wants woman, as the most dangerous plaything.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche

“You know what I'm sick and tired of, Harry?
I'm sick and tired of having to eke my way through life.
I'm sick and tired of being a nobody...
But most of all, I'm sick and tired of having nobody.”
~ Lloyd Christmas

“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians.
Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
~ Mohandas Gandhi

“Ain't nobody tell us it was fair,
No love for my daddy, cause the coward wasn't there.
He passed away and I didn't cry.
Cause my anger, wouldn't let me feel for a stranger.
They say i'm wrong and i'm heartless,
But all along I was looking for a father - he was gone...”
~ Tupac Shakur

“Softly, as if I played piano in the dark,
found a way to channel my anger not to embark.
The world's a stage and everybody's got to play their part.
God works in mysterious ways
so when he starts the job of speaking through us
we be so sincere with this here.
No drugs or alcohol so I can get the signal clear - as day.
Put my glock away, I got a stronger weapon
that never runs out of ammunition so I'm ready for war, okay...”
~ Andre 3000

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you,
I could walk in my garden forever.”
~ Alfred Lord Tennyson

“What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought
without accepting it”
~ Aristotle

“A kiss is a lovely trick, designed by nature,
to stop words when speech becomes superfluous.”
~ Ingrid Bergmen

“You have to believe in yourself.
Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.”
~ Sun Tzu

“Not everything that counts can be counted,
and not everything that can be counted counts”
~ Albert Einstein

“Don't worry, about a thing. Because every little thing is gonna be alright.”
~ Bob Marley

... and to close:

“An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast;
a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.”

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal

with the intent of throwing it at someone else;
you are the one who gets burned.”

“It is better to travel well than to arrive.”

“The tongue like a sharp knife...
Kills without drawing blood.”

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle,
and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

“Three things cannot be long hidden:
the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe,
deserve your love and affection.”

~ Siddhārtha Gautama (Buddha)
