Swallowing Sea

“She might not have read many books. But when she reads a book, she swallows the very words. If you open the books on her shelves, you will find that the front and back covers encase white pages.” ― Kamand Kojouri

Undefined

“There are no facts, only interpretations.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

The Glass House

“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.” ― Anton Chekhov

“You have peace," the old woman said, "when you make it with yourself.” ― Mitch Albom

“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.” ― Elie Wiesel

A Citadel of Synthesis

There are routes not to be followed, armies not to be attacked, citadels not to be besieged, territory not to be fought over. ~ Sun Tzu

Observing The Cost

“Step follows step, Hope follows Courage, Set your face towards danger, Set your heart on victory.” ― Gail Carson Levine

Ungluing Bondage

"A biochemical reaction has been implanted deep into our seeds from the roots of the Master Gardener. Yearning has manifested as impassioned prescience, where the tactile pleasuring of physical form created by colorless desire dissolves the struggle of living with the vapors of hidden internal fire." -- Laura Lynn Vala

Manus Aeternus

“I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That’s what everyone wants. Not 24-7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche or a blow job or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have a feeling that they can’t hide.” ― Rachel Cohn

Crawling In Crystal Blue

“The more you try to impress, the more you become depressed, and the more they get tired of your coercion. It doesn't make them love you, instead, they'll see you as a little child, trying to draw a senseless picture on a piece of paper, begging people to look at it and admire it by force. You can persuade someone to look at your face, but you can't persuade them to see the beauty therein.” ― Michael Bassey Johnson

Astronauts of the Micro-Wave

You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.” ― Edgar Mitchell

Choosing Weightless Peace

“For a minute, I can feel it: the sense of peace as my mind goes quiet, like I'm already dead. I am weightless and free. Nothing and no one to fear, not even myself.” ― Jennifer Niven

The Composition of Love in Space

"Brahma was excessively sparing with earth, water, and fire... The reckless expenditure of air and ether in his composition was amazing. And, in consequence, he perpetually struggled to outreach the wind, to outrun space itself. Other animals ran only when they had a reason, but the Horse would run for no reason whatever, as if to run out of his own skin." ~Rabindranath Tagore

Sparkling Wings

"When I look at myself in the mirror, I see a unicorn. A badass unicorn." ~ Unknown
