  • What is our life compared to the cosmos?
  • Obedience is the rapist of creativity
  • One of the biggest happiness inhibitors is exhaustion.
  • Freedom does not exist, therefore free will does not exist.
  • When we experience loneliness, we seek the company of others; yet it is while we entertain others that we experience true solidarity.
  • We do nothing without the permission of nature.
  • The best things in life aren't free.. They're covered in your sweat and blood, and smeared with the pride of invention and stamina. The best things in life, demand the best from you.
  • Sometimes a man must build a bridge; a catalyst, to join his present with his future; his reality to his dream.
  • All men are cavemen. no matter how civilized a man may seem -- at his heart, all he knows is the hunt.
  • Before we can contemplate our purpose, we must first discover how truly small we are.
  • Our capacity for love is less than our capacity for longing. We miss those who have left us, far more than we could have loved them.
  • the art of compromise is essential to personal peace.
  • A good song makes you feel like you're hearing your own thoughts out loud for the first time.
  • To be independent of want, to give, and never ask, to show forgiveness, and always own a patient hope; this be the yearning of a simple heart.
  • Love is a risk we can't risk not taking.
  • Into the thick and silent trees I wander, seeking to lose myself, and find a truth.
  • We are creatures of habit; humans. It is through the rituals of our mothers, and the sins of our fathers that we find our comfort.
  • Lies are usually less offensive than the truth.
  • Be still! One can't find himself, who keeps moving himself.
  • All fears are rooted in our foundational fear of death.
  • Freedom in the natural is only an illusion.
  • Silence. Love. Reverence. The holy trinity.
  • Love is a sweet nectar secreted from our hearts; addictive on the lips of the receiver. But we know that when sweet nectar becomes familiar; our admiration for it disappears.
  • Sometimes, you just have to be quiet, and let nature do the talking.
  • People only change when the pain of changing is less than the pain of remaining the same.
  • Why does man, with his eager heart, always seek that which he cannot have? I'll tell you the truth, my friend. A man without a dream is a dead man.
  • A good life is one inspired by vision, and guided by wisdom.
  • I've never seen proof that 'the future' exists, therefore, I don't believe in it.
  • Nothing truly dies. They simply transform; change status. Be it body, love or dreams, death is simply another tool of creation.
  • A beautiful heart is worth more than a world of jewels, and harder to find.
  • Only when men stop dreaming, can there be peace.
  • Depression is good for a man... If only for diversity.
  • Every human I meet is a mirror that reflects my imperfections.
  • Happiness isn't hard to find, it's hard to keep.
  • Clarity is often found in the fog.
  • it is better to enjoy many small rewards, than to refuse them in waiting for one large reward.
  • The only sin is pride; all sins fit this description.
  • Faith is accepting your ignorance, and aggressively following your heart.
  • When I think of love, I think of death. The fear of dying without love, drives my motivation to find it.
  • A competent man is incapable of jealousy in anything. He trusts his woman in all things, and does not speak ill of her relationships with those who were there before him, but delights in her independence.
  • Every action we commit comes for a deep, subliminal selfishness.
  • My position on freewill and fate is this: Humans are made to follow a path, a wide path; but a path nonetheless.
  • Whether the world is just or unjust; fair or unfair; karma or no, all we can be is good men, and hope for the best.
  • Man's Fire Has but a moment of breath In which to build a ship of truth On which to sail his soul on the sea of immortality For death takes all things; beauty, courage and youth, But death cannot take truth.
  • In solitude you will find your artist.
  • Those who weigh life with science or morals, do not fully understand the truth; that life is purely metaphysical.
