“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again.”
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to everything.
"No one ever wrote this sentence before: 'On the feast of St. Stephen, I was driving my hearse to the wholesale liverwurst outlet when, suddenly, a hermaphrodite in a piano truck backed out of a crackhouse driveway and, as my shoes caught fire, I pirouetted across Boris Karloff Blvd., slapping the truck driver six times in the loins with a Chattanooga road map, even though he was humming The Pussycat Song.' " - George Carlin
“Traveling is a fool's paradise. Our first journeys discover to us the indifference of places. At home I dream that at Naples, at Rome, I can be intoxicated with beauty, and lose my sadness. I pack my trunk, embrace my friends, embark on the sea, and at last wake up in Naples, and there beside me is the stern fact, the sad self, unrelenting, identical, that I fled from. I seek the Vatican, and the palaces. I affect to be intoxicated with sights and suggestions, but I am not intoxicated. My giant goes with me wherever I go.”
I scribble a note, say I'm sorry that it happened this way
Exhaling my last breath so free knowing not what to say
The light burns my eyes but I see peace so clear
My heart bids my soul a farewell, feet kickin' the air

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
Time to die." - Roy Batty
