Grad of the 21st: Vol.1

Recently I have discovered just how different life is post-graduation. Its not that everything changes, it just happens to not be quite as intentional as it once was. All of a sudden life is a responsibility, whereas an individual should be responsible for ones life. Seems counter intuitive. Its always funny to me that older generations are like, "you just gotta work hard, its so easy for everything to fall in place" it isn't, stop lying haha. If it was easy, then I wouldn't be working PT anymore... If someone gave me a chance to work hard then I would; but until then I'm clinging to my free spirited idea that what I want to do will be what I eventually do, and that is what I gotta say today.

“The fact to which we have got to cling, as to a lifebelt, is that it is possible to be a normal decent person and yet be fully alive.”- Allen Ginsberg

Thursdays III: Lateness Calls Delay (Light)- RE: Light and Darkness

Love is not consolation. It is light.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Now, God be praised, that to believing souls gives light in darkness, comfort in despair.

William Shakespeare
We must learn to regard people less in light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
Thomas Merton

"Nothing is permanent, Not even Death"
Tony (as portrayed by Johnny Depp in "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus")
