“True power comes from knowing the absolute truth about ourselves and that takes ruthless honesty. We have no power without love . Without love and empathy for both ourselves and others we cannot complete our character, which is given to us like seeds are given to farmers, to grow and to harvest from, to create abundance that nurtures us and allows us to share its bounty. We are never a done deal till we leave this planet. Don’t sell yourself short.”
“If we spend the time we waste in sighing
for the perfect golden fruit
in fulfilling the conditions of its growth,
happiness will come, must come.
It is guaranteed in the very laws of the universe.
If it involves some chastening and renunciation, well,
the fruit will be all the sweeter for this touch of holiness.”
- Helen Keller
“I know, I’m slow on the draw with this “like my page stuff.” It’s annoying but part of the molecular structure of society.”
“We, like birds, are meant to fly and sing – that’s all – and all our plans and schemes are twigs of nest that, once outgrown, we leave.”
“Canary Not Contrary”
was that a canary that flew by
no silly that was mad march
a yellow month of daffs then
more cash for the city wankers
oh i meant bankers

they dont wharf down coffee only dogs wharf
oh thats where boats unload then.. is that near barking

“With my last dying breath, I will let out a sound; a seed of a love song growing under the tongue, sprouting into a howl, rising from my lips and into night, to halo the wild forever moon.”
this kind of fire
sometimes I think the gods deliberately keep pushing me into the fire just to hear me yelp a few good lines. they just aren't going to let me retire silk scarf about neck giving lectures at Yale. the gods need me to entertain them. they must be terribly bored with all the others and I am too. and now my cigarette lighter has gone dry. I sit here hopelessly flicking it. this kind of fire they can't give me.
“It’s possible to forget how alive we really are. We can become dry and tired, just existing, instead of really living. We need to remind ourselves of the juice of life, and make that a habit. Find those places inside that jump for joy, and do things”
“I’ve always liked men better than women, but I’d marry again if I found a man who had fifteen million dollars,
would sign over half to me, and guarantee that he’d be dead within a year.”
- Bette Davis
