Life_is

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans. - John Lennon

Merwin

Fly me to the moon Let me play among the stars Let me see what spring is like on A-Jupiter and Mars. - Frank Sinatra + my own uploaded Anime image described as: Two young men contemplating apocalypse on a beach.

Divine_Comedy

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend. - Bruce Lee.

Persian_2

Go friends, fetch our beloved; bring me please that fugitive idol! With sweet songs and golden excuses, fetch home the beautiful-faced good moon. And if he promises that "I will come another time", every promise is a trick, he will cheat you. He has such warm breath, that with magic and enchantments he can tie a knot in water and make air solid. With blessedness and joy, when my beloved appears, sit and keep gazing on the miracles of God. When his glory shines, what is the glory of the beautiful? Since his sun-like face kills the lamps. Go, o lightly-moving heart, to Yemen, to the stealer of my heart; take my greetings and my service to that jewel without price. - Rumi's ghazal 163

Merwin

Day after day this summer's rain keeps them from setting up our tombstone. Let us stay home together my love and not know as the rain does not know where it came from and the sea that is all around us does not know its beginning. - W.S. Merwin

Divine_Comedy

This little world clenched between far and close, a blue dot watering down burning exploding… What jolly life do I carve from the death that is already present in the reddening of green forests, unless some other death strikes me first before I reached the final steps of my own walk?

Dionysus

My wish is that my ability to desire you is greater than my ability to fulfill my desires. - Dionysus

Twain

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you did not do than by the ones you did do. So, throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. - Mark Twain

Lennon

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans. - John Lennon

Nothing

She hasn't your strength. She's never had any strength. She's never had anything but heart. ― Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

Candide

The Scariest Monsters Are the Ones That Lurk Within Our Souls. - Edgar Allan Poe

Candide

A hundred times I wanted to kill myself, but always I loved life more. This ridiculous weakness is perhaps one of our worst instincts; is anything more stupid than choosing to carry a burden that really one wants to cast on the ground? to hold existence in horror, and yet to cling to it? to fondle the serpent which devours us till it has eaten out our heart? In the countries through which I have been forced to wander, in the taverns where I have had to work, I have seen a vast number of people who hated their existence; but I never saw more than a dozen who deliberately put an end to their own misery. - Candide, Voltaire

Pushkin

It was a terrible bequest, still fresh in its commemoration. There’s nothing, friends, for me to add, you’ll learn it all from my narration. The tale I tell you will be sad. - The Bronze Horseman, Pushkin.

Sonnet_18

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,

And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;

And every fair from fair sometime declines,

By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd;

But thy eternal summer shall not fade,

Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;

Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,

When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,

So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.


Sonnet 18, Shakespeare

Benedetti

Ya no llueve en tu olvido, ni siquiera en tu pobre redoma o en las tapias, aunque el pasado está escondido y lejos no tienes más remedio que mirarlo. - Mario Benedetti
