lost in paradise

"At school, I was suffocated by the amount of normality I was subjected to. I knew how to count, yet they, the teachers, pushed all these complex forms of mathematics down my throat. I could read, but I wasn’t allowed to read what I wanted. I was force-fed the syllabus because it was deemed the standard. The norm. I was not particularly bright in that I could only absorb information that interested me. Anything else either put me to sleep or made me physically ill."

- Ray Davies

"I wish I could throw off the thoughts which poison my happiness."

- Frédéric Chopin 

"Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is."

- Eckhart Tolle

"You will burn and you will burn out; you will be healed and come back again."

- Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

"My God,” he gasped, “you’re fun to kiss."

- F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is The Night

"No one is a slut. “Slut” is a made-up word to keep women from having as much fun as men. A person who enjoys sex is just a person and a person who is a virgin is also just a person and everyone should lay off each other’s sex lives. Retire the word “slut” please."
