"“My concept of death for a long time was to come down that mountain road at 120 and just keep going straight right there, burst out through the barrier and hang out above all that…and there I’d be, sitting in the front seat, stark naked, with a case of whiskey next to me and a case of dynamite in the trunk…honking the horn, and the lights on, and just sit there in space for an instant, a human bomb, and fall down into that mess of steel mills. It’d be a tremendous goddamn explosion. No pain. No one would get hurt. I’m pretty sure, unless they’ve changed the highway, that launching place is still there. As soon as I get home, I ought to take the drive just to check it out.” (February 16, 2005) written 4 days before he committed suicide."
Hunter S. Thompson
"Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant."
Robert Louis Stevenson
"You cannot receive what you don’t give. Outflow determines inflow."
Eckhart Tolle
"You are not accidental. Existence needs you. Without you something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it. Thats what gives you dignity, that the whole existence will miss you. The stars and sun and moon, the trees and birds and earth - everything in the universe will feel a small place is vacant which cannot be filled by anybody except you. This gives you a tremendous joy, a fulfillment that you are related to existence, and existence cares for you. Once you are clean and clear, you can see tremendous love falling on you from all dimensions."
"‎> peoples’ unquenchable thirst for negative gossip and scandal > media capitalizes on thirst, relentlessly harassing ‘public’ figures, family members, and friends for a ‘juicier’ story > stress and scrutiny from public microscope destroys lives, families, relationships, and even kills > creates more gossip to google, tweet, facebook about, etc > fuels media to move on to next victim"
"We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust."
David Levithan
"Its so hard to talk when you want to kill yourself. That’s above and beyond everything else, and it’s not a mental complaint-it’s a physical thing, like it’s physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don’t come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people’s words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet."

"Patience does not mean to passively endure. It means to be far sighted enough to trust the end result of a process. What does patience mean? It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience means to be shortsighted as to not able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never runs out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full."
"We often look outside of ourselves by being of service to others and feel that if I can help solve their problems, my problems will be solved. This is a backwards mentality. When you see the enriching of yourself that aligns your love, passion and confidence infused together in harmony, you become a matrix of inner divine self where that light shines brightly for others who are willing to take it in. It’s not about who agrees or disagrees with your perspective, it’s about your willingness to simply be in the vibration to share unconditionally. That is the understanding."
Brad Johnson
"Forgiveness is the key to breaking the cycle of karma and reincarnation. Forgiveness doesn’t mean “What you did was okay.” It simply means, “I’m no longer willing to carry the heavy toxic burdens of anger, resentment, and victimhood in my soul.” You can work on healing, uplifting, and changing situations from a place of forgiveness, instead of from a place of resentment. Forgive yourself and everyone, and you are free!"
"I will remember the kisses, our lips raw with love,
and how you gave me everything you had
and how I offered you what was left of me."
Charles Bukowski
"In visions of the dark night
I have dreamed of joy departed
But a waking dream of life and light
Hath left me broken-hearted."
Edgar Allen Poe (A Passage from A Dream)
"Every thought you produce, anything you say, any action you do, it bears your signature. You are like a candle. Imagine you are sending Light out all around you. All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions. If you say something kind, your kind words go in many directions, and you yourself go with them. We are transforming and continuing in a different form at any moment."
 Thich Nhat Hanh
"The Victorian period was not only a haunted age; it was also, in every sense of the word, a hallucinatory age, lending itself to every type of illusion, even at the level of bricks and mortar. The Victorian house, the Victorian street, encouraged illusion and hallucination, the Victorian theatre was a hotbed of optical tricks, only the kitchen escaped the obsession with the manufacture of articles which appeared to be something else: moneyboxes disguised as books, substantial-looking doors that on examination was merely cunning paintwork, solid-looking chairs that were, in fact, featherlight, being manufactured from papier mache."
Ronald Pearsall, The Table-Rappers: The Victorians and the Occult
