heaven [Sunday
08/27/06 - 10:41am]
Do not ask God the way to heaven; he will show you the hardest one.
Stanislaw J. Lec (1909 - 1966)

The way to heaven isn't through working and wasting your life with things you don't wanna do. It's getting closer and closer to a life that is paradisiac. It's creating harmony and happiness. It feels good, not bad - which is why it must be right.

concealing oneself [Wednesday
08/23/06 - 1:42pm]
Ha! this quotes-meme is turning out to be very useful! now secret_seeker posted her choice of quotes and i especially liked this one.

Talking much about oneself can also be a means to conceal oneself.
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)

The only thing i do not like about the quote is that it's nothing but common sense. But even common sense can be interesting. I think the only reason i talk about myself to people i don't really know that well is to make them see a certain picture of me. Something that isn't truely me but more compatible with what most people would rather want me to be like. I shouldn't do that and this quote reminded me of that.

making people laugh [Tuesday
08/22/06 - 1:20pm]

You cannot be mad at somebody who makes you laugh - it's as simple as that.
Jay Leno (1950)

Isn't it weird? A simple laugh and it's impossible for me to hold any grudges against the person who caused me to laugh. Being able to make others laugh must be the most practical thing on earth because noone could ever dislike you. Didn't know it was such an important talent O.o

other people's pain [Tuesday
08/22/06 - 1:02pm]
Sometimes you feel other people's pain worse than your own. We're armored against
our own troubles. We can't afford to give in to despair. Then you see someone else struggling, and it breaks your... heart.

Sean Stewart
Perfect Circle, 2004

gottahavelove posted this after i tagged her with a quotes-meme and i had to put it here because it's just so true and i'm kind of glad other people feel the same.

common sense = humor [Monday
08/21/06 - 12:52pm]

"Common sense and sense of humor are the same thing moving at different speeds.
A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing."

Clive Jones

Found this quote today and thought celya might like it since it doesn't make any sense and says something about humor. I don't really get it so i'll leave it here till i find the time to grok it.
