I realized that if what we call human nature can be changed, then absolutely anything is possible. And from that moment, my life changed.
But when it really happens I'm very fascinated, I'm waiting for the moment, because the moment where life abandons you and death steps in, that moment must be fantastic, no?
Having felt people's love and support first hand through difficult moments in my life makes me feel it's our responsibility to help one another.
Insist on yourself; never imitate.? Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life's cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another you have only an extemporaneous half possession.? That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him.
Once in one's life, for one mortal moment, one must make a grab for immortality; if not, one has not lived.

In history as in human life, regret does not bring back a lost moment and a thousand years will not recover something lost in a single hour.
But now science, spurred on by its powerful delusion, hurtles inexorably towards its limits where the optimism hidden in the essence of logic founders. For the periphery of the circle of science has an infinite number of points and while there is no telling yet how the circle could ever be fully surveyed,the noble and gifted man, before he has reached the middle of his life, still inevitably encounters such peripheral limit points andfinds himself staring into an impenetrable darkness. If he at that moment sees to his horror how in these limits logic coils arounditself and finally bites its own tail - then the new form of knowledge breaks through, tragic knowledge, which in order to be tolerated,needs art as a protection and remedy.

Your home is regarded as a model home, your life as a model life. But all this splendor, and you along with it... it's just as though it were built upon a shifting quagmire. A moment may come, a word can be spoken, and both you and all this splendor will collapse.

All the sculptures of today, like those of the past, will end one day in pieces... So it is important to fashion ones work carefully in its smallest recess and charge every particle of matter with life.
Tattoos are like stories - they're symbolic of the important moments in your life. Sitting down, talking about where you got each tattoo and what it symbolizes, is really beautiful.
A man with a so-called character is often a simple piece of mechanism; he has often only one point of view for the extremely complicated relationships of life.
Life is all memory except for the one present moment that goes by you so quick you hardly catch it going.
The most momentous thing in human life is the art of winning the soul to good or evil.
The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.
Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.
