Proverbial Postulation

11 Jun

Woke from a slumber and sought out the City of Books to make up for lost brain stimulation sleeping. Parched for something, anything, to squeeze every drop of juice out of to feed my mind. Downtown. Bookstore. And I am Found.

What would you attempt to do if you knew that you could not fail?

“Do one thing everyday that scares you.”-Eleanor Roosevelt

“You are so much sunshine to the square inch!” -Walt Whitman

Oh, the I could shrink the surface of the world,
so that  suddenly I might find you
standing at my side!” -Wang Chien

“There is no use trying,” said Alice; “one can’t believe in impossible things.                  “I Dare say you haven’t had much practice,”said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” – Lewis Carroll

“One must still have chaos in oneself

to give birth to a dancing star.”- Nietzsche

“This is what you shall do:love the earth and the sun and the animals, despise richs and give alms to everyone that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your labor and income to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning god, have patience and indulgence towards the people, take off your hat to nothing known and unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in te silent lines of its lips and face and in between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body…”            -Walt Whitman

“Madness exists only in society.

It does not exist outside the forms of sensibility that isolate it,

and the forms of repulsion that expel it or capture it.”

– Foucault
