“the raw execution of the institution of the brain: the mind. delicate, yes. yet, deeper than the roaring of oceans.

o’, what a wonder . . . to relish in its beauty. to relish in its splendor. to crack the uncrackable . . .

. . . forever will the secrets of the universe be still within its being.”


“Tis entirely more tolling to accept the coldness of reality than to relish in the warmth of any fantasy.


‘Tis entirely more destructive to simply delight in any fantasy than to accept the genuine nature of this reality.”


“. . . however, experience is, at times, confused with simply enduring. complacency. simply being surrounded by a situation but, not really being a part of it. being surrounded by a certain group of people but, never engaging them in attempt to understand them. never talking to them.

how can you control what you don’t know?

how can you be controlled by someone/something that doesn’t even know you?”


as individuals, we oppose _______ and all of his/her supporters; yet, we all either know someone like _______, have someone like _______ in our families, or could be just as bad as _______ ourselves, either in the same way or in a different way. but, we still love ourselves with all the flaws that we have. and, we still love our flawed family members. and, we still love our “asshole” friends. and, we still watch our horrendous TV shows and movies with all the scandal we can handle. yet, we call out other people for not representing a culture the “correct” way.

fix yourself, first, to fix the ones around you.
