Writes of Passage Pt3

1. “What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them. And they have changed since then.”
~ T.S. Eliot

2. “Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life.”
~Anais Nin

3. “I lapsed into my pathetic cut-off period. Often with humans, both good and bad, my senses simply shut off, they get tired, I give up. I am polite. I nod. I pretend to understand because I don’t want anybody to be hurt. That is the one weakness that has lead me into the most trouble. Trying to be kind to others I often get my soul shredded into a kind of spiritual pasta.No matter. My brain shuts off. I listen. I respond. And they are too dumb to know that I am not there.”
~Charles Bukowski

4. “My solitude doesn’t depend on the presence or absence of people; on the contrary, I hate who steals my solitude without, in exchange, offering me true company.”
-Friedrich Nietzsche

5. “Knowledge without understanding is just a book on a shelf.”
~ Dr. Nina M. Knight

6. “There is no blue without yellow and without orange.”
– Vincent Van Gogh

7. “Go into yourself and test the deeps in which your life takes rise; at its source you will find the answer to the question whether you must create.”
-Rainer Maria Rilke

8. “When the roots are deep there is no reason to fear the wind.”
-African Proverb

9. “The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”
~ William Blake

10. “Our youth are forced to pass through schools that dont teach, then told to search for jobs that dont exist and finally left stranded to stare at the glamorous lives advertised around them.”
-Huey P. Newton
