If only you could sense how important
you are to the lives of those you meet;
how important you can be to people you
may never even dream of. There is
something of yourself that you leave
at every meeting with another person.

It is a question of how much flavor is

The love of a friend is a thousand
times greater than the touch of lover

The lovingly familiar look on a loved ones
face is far greater than even the finest of riches

Philosophy is the taste of paradise
and the sting of reality.

We have the power to create our own realities.
If you dont like your current reality, change it!

We are all just aliens. Your clothes are really spacesuits.
Your car is really a spaceship. Living on planet earth
can be just like living on any other planet.
What kind of alien are you?

The golden opportunity you are seeking is within yourself.

It takes a minute to have a crush.. an hour to make a friend, a day to fall in love.
It takes forever to forget someone.

Love is a secret. If you want to keep it, dont tell anyone about it,
even the person you love

To see me is to see past the physical and into the mental.
To know me, is to see past the mental and into the heart.
To love me is to see past the heart and into the soul.

My love is indescribeable.
I have felt it, and been rejected.
That shall never stop me.
I will continue to love through any difficulty,
any hardship, any boundary.
Love is inescapable, and unstoppable.

Life throws a lot of things at you, its not necessary to catch them all,
but be aware of whats coming so you can get out of the way.

Statements from Ken:

ROMANCE: Fairy tale told to keep one in denial

One can either accept, trust, and respect me as I am
or they can go find one they can or else someone else
sick enough to try to mold to their image.

One does not change what they love.
They submerse themselve into the bliss of their presences.

One must be happy alone to be happy with another.
A relationship is sharing.
Not taking something you don't have from another.
Can't give what ya don't have.

First thing is to always keep an open mind and
measure EVERYTHING against common sense.
It saves a lot of blows about one's head and shoulders.

People in love, it is well known, suffer extreme conceptual delusions;
the most common of these being that other people
find your condition as thrilling and eye-watering
as you do yourselves.
Julian Hartono

To love someone is to give them the key to your heart

Although we've come, to the end of the road.

He who controls the information, controls the world.

I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things;
then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful.
*Amor Fati : let that be my love henceforth!
I do not want to wage war against what is ugly.
I do not want to accuse; I do not even want to accuse those who accuse.
Looking away shall be my only negation.
And all in all and on the whole; some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer.
Friederick Nitch
*Amor Fati : a love of fate.

~The only way to keep what you have in life is to give some of it away~

You will find that silence or very gentle words are the
most exquisite revenge for insult.

If it looks good...
You`ll see it
If it sounds good...
You`ll hear it
If it`s marketed right..
you`ll buy it
But..if it`s real.. You`ll feel it.

What garlic is to salad, insanity is to art.

80% of all questions that begin with the word `why' can be answered with
the simple sentence `people are stupid.'
(Kevin Carson)

Somebody loves you far more than you know...
With a love that keeps growing as days come and go...
Somebody needs you to make life worthwhile...
Needs your warm touch and the joy of your smile...

I loved you before I could say the words,
I will love you after I can't
say them anymore.

May you be bathed in the light of a rainbow.

The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being.
His heart withers if it does not answer another heart.
His mind shrinks away if he hears only
the echoes of his own thoughts
and finds no other inspiration.
Patrick Hambrugsten

I am strongly in favor of common sense, honesty and common decency.
This makes me forever ineligible for public office.

I can LET things happen, or, I can MAKE things happen.

It's funny but people with guilty consciences usually are a little paranoid.
And they lash out at people....
It's all gonna catch up with him and he will apologize some day.
And you will forgive him, because you feel sorry for him.
But it will never be the same.
I'm sorry.

Indifference is the strongest force in the universe.
It makes everything it touches meaningless.
Love and hate don't stand a chance against it.
It lets neglect and decay and monstrous injustice go unchecked.
It doesn't act, it allows.
And that's what gives it so much power.

A wise man once said to me,
"Emotions make you weak, the weak shall die, and the strong shall thrive."
To which I replied,
"Emotions make you weak, but they also make you human."
That is when I learned the wise man
was really a fool in disguise.

I'm an upside hourglass, my weight is in my past,
the future clear, bright and empty....
some one please turn me over.

My life is like jello, you can open up the package,
water it down with the heat and cold of my past,
stir me up and attempt to cool my hot core,
but the more effort you put into understanding me,
the more confused you become
and the worse I taste.
Jessica Julia (again, thanks)

Get up, go to work, come home, go to bed,
It's rotten, but it pays the bills. :)

A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil--but it needs a little
mulch of letters and phone calls and small silly presents every so often--
just to save it from drying out completely.

I've never been a communist
. Sometimes I have to explain that to people.
I am very much in favor of the whole capitalist system,
and that's compatible with the fact
that much of it can be improved.
At the heart of capitalism is continuously
finding what is stupid and pointing it out.
Maybe that helps you stop doing it.
Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert.

Watch the TOES you step on today...They may be connected to the BUTT you

No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars,
or sailed to an uncharted land,
or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.

Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and
the blind can see.

Carpe diem, mi amour, you have to seize the day, that's what your life is for.

If young ears shouldn't hear it, perhaps old mouths shouldn't say it.

Live, love, have alot of fun.

The way you measure your lifes worth is how much you enrich others.

Suppressing the TRUTH has never met with success for long, it is only temporary

I got a paper plate in my head 'cause they were out of the metal ones.

Last night I got a dog for my boyfriend. It was a fair trade.

When asked what he thought of Western Civilization, Ghandi replied,
"I think it would be a great idea."

I'll burn that bridge when I come to it.

If God is a matter of opinion (and not fact), then when I pray,
I am praying to my opinion,
and thus, I am praying to myself.

Life is too short, so love the one you got, cause you might get run over or
ya might get shock
