"Blue is the typical heavenly colour. The ultimate feeling it creates is one of rest. When it sinks to almost black, it echos grief that is hardly human."

If you want to provoke, you should provoke someone who is stronger than you, otherwise you are misusing your power.

my own quote

"
the peace... in war

i'd rather be  
at war  
fighting  
the just fight  
for the right  
than  
be at peace  
that is born  
of surrender  
of bowing  
to tyranny   "

"I nearly have lived my own life and I'll love 'til the last take of breath. I'm in a position to say 'hey, my time ends soon, I don't need to care about other person's futures'.
But that's just wrong. This thought would make me blind and would stab my progeny's future so they'll never have it as comfortable as I am allowed to have it in my last days now."

~ Civilant during a discussion about environment in our city hall.

Little man, big speech.

"To get married, to have children, to get trapped in
the family structure.  To go someplace to work
every day and to return.  It was impossible.  To do
things, simple things, to be part of family picnics,
Christmas, the 4th of July, Labor Day, Mother's
Day... was a man born just to endure those
things and then die?  I would rather be a
dishwasher, return to a tiny room and drink
myself to sleep."

- Charles Bukowski

“But it is not what I am saying that is hurting you; it is that you have wounds that I touch by what I have said. You are hurting yourself. There is no way I can take this personally.”
