a little proverb i came up with (oh well, why not eh?)

the wise man is silent about his victories. the wiser man is open about his failures.

jesus he knows me

a nice quote:

'Sir, we ought to teach the people that they are doing wrong in worshipping the images and pictures in the temple.'
Ramakrishna: 'That's the way with you Calcutta people: you want to teach and preach. You want to give millions when you are beggars yourselves. ... Do you think God does not know that he is being worshipped in the images and pictures? If a worshipper should make a mistake, do you not think God will know his intent?'

- The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna

don't judge a book by its cover; don't judge this quote by its obscure reference. i found it in J.D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey, which i heartily recommend to anyone liking The Catcher in the Rye. and please, look beyond the simple message of teaching and preaching in this quote, the bigger message tells a lot more...

happiness # 21

feeling sad

Monday, August 13, 2007

close, open

There always is an age
in which you think you've seen it all.
But you have never cried enough.
We'll build paper walls around us
so that a single stroke of wind can kill.

We have never cried enough.

We die our days in paper-cuts
and hide our bruises because we never fall.
But we are snowflakes, going down
Never staying long enough.

sadness # 3

to think about all the things going on while i am writing this... it is truly insufferable, and intolerable. all we seem to be able to do is steal each other's breath. for no apparent reason but to choke in our own anxieties over the possible lack of air out there.

will i ever better the world? will we?

sorry if i sound like a tormented adolescent kid. but this is how i feel. so actually, fuck sorry. it is what it is. let things be that are.
