Hullo, Beautiful

"I respect kindness in human beings first of all, and kindness to animals. I don't respect the law; I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer."

ATTITUDE

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.  
It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances,
than failures, than successes,
than what other people think, say or do.  
It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.  
It will make or break a company... a church... a home.  

The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day.  
We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.  
We cannot change the inevitable.  
The only thing we can do is play the one string we have, and that is our attitude...

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes”

"When you write in prose, you cook the rice.
When you write poetry, you turn rice into rice wine.
Cooked rice doesn't change its shape, but rice wine changes both in quality and shape.
Cooked rice makes one full so one can live out one's life span . . .
wine, on the other hand,
makes one drunk, makes the sad happy, and the happy sad.
Its effect is sublimely beyond explanation."

haha! xD ..can't lie, kinda scared to reach bottom [..but that's a great quote!]

@Missy! so happy to see Henry Miller here, haven't read anything by him in a long time -- one of a kind author

@Tallen...someone read me the Wu Qiao quote you posted yesterday; thought it was very innovative & true, what a brilliant way to describe poetry.. (the other quotes were awesome as well, but the latter really stood out to me)

edit:

eek! (forgot) @Lepp good quote mister *pats head* <3
[in seriousness, I love that quote now..found myself in complete accord with most of its sentiments, thank you for introducing me to it ^-^]

"Here is the topography of false starts. Here
a whole constellation is lousy with desire.
Here what passes for love is the same
as anywhere. Here no one has said
a prayer for the stars, and here no one
comes, except to leave, except to stay
long enough to bruise."

-- Paul Guest, from “The Report from Home”


“If there is to be any peace it will come through being, not having.”

Hey! xD yea.. ..like his quotes, seems like he was very intelligent. I originally found him through Anais Nin when I was a teen (..must admit, ..was a little shocked by his novels tho. )

Haha. Maybe I’m just not easily shocked any more. The DU has warped my tiny, pure, fragile little mind. I was basically a choir girl before I joined this website.




Ok that was total arse.... but I dig his books. 😂
