sometimes i can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives i’m not living.
the first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - to control your world is to control your culture. to model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. to write the books. make the music. shoot the films. paint the art.
you may think I’m small, but i have a universe inside my mind.
learn new things and think new thoughts.
good things will soon happen.
rise above little things. be a big thinker. you are what you think. so just think big, believe big, act big, dream big, work big, give big, forgive big, laugh big, image big, love big, live big. carry that list and you’ll start feeling big. be a believer and you’ll be an achiever.
soap & skin - thanatos
i want to be alone and i want people to notice me - both at the same time.
more. more anything. more is better. all i want is more.
recounting the strange is like telling one’s dreams: one can communicate the events of a dream, but not the emotional content, the way that a dream can colour one’s entire day.
i’d rather say less and mean more.
much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.
extraordinary things are always hiding in places people never bother to look.
