Figured this thread could be some sort of clipboard, to put quotes and stuff you like of any origin and any mood. Chat, books, movies, music and whatnot. cat

Ima add two now, a classic quote from The Catcher in the Rye (Bass prolly recognizes this one:) and a haiku by japanese poet Bashō.


"I figured I could get a job at a filling station somewhere, putting gas and oil in people’s cars. I didn’t care what kind of job it was, though. Just so people didn’t know me and I didn’t know anybody. I thought what I’d do was, I’d pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. That way I wouldn’t have to have any goddam stupid useless conversations with anybody. If anybody wanted to tell me something, they’d have to write it on a piece of paper and shove it over to me. They’d get bored as hell doing that after a while, and then I’d be through with having conversations for the rest of my life. Everybody’d think I was just a poor deaf-mute bastard and they’d leave me alone."

~J.D. Salinger



"kono michi ya / yuku hito nashi ni / aki no kure

No one
walks along this path
this autumn evening. "

~Matsuo Bashō

The classic, brilliant and most amazing movie ever - Bladerunner

Batty played by Rutger Hauer to Deckard played by Harrison Ford

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain. Time to die.

"A subject to which few intellectuals ever give a thought is the right to be a vagrant, the freedom to wander. Yet vagrancy is deliverance, and life on the open road is the essence of freedom. To have the courage to smash the chains with which modern life has weighted us (under the pretext that it was offering us more liberty), then to take up the symbolic stick and bundle, and get out! The healthy wayfarer sitting beside the road scanning the horizon open before him, is he not the absolute master of the earth, the waters, even the sky?… His estate has no limits, his empire no law. No work bends him toward the ground, for the bounty and beauty of the earth are already his.

To have a home, a family, a property or a public function, to have a definite means of livelihood and to be a useful cog in the social machine, all these things seem necessary, even indispensable, to the vast majority of men, including intellectuals, and including even those who think of themselves as wholly liberated. And yet such things are only a different form of the slavery that comes of contact with others."

~Isabelle Eberhardt

Also, another haiku...

"at the crescent moon
the silence
enters the heart"

~Chiyo-ni

"Lao Tzi loved to take a walk in the morning, he just walked a long way down the road in silence watching the sun rising above the land. His neighbour and friend knew about that habit of his and every morning he took a walk with Lao just watching the sun saying nothing. One day a cousin of the friend of Lao Tzi came to see his relative and just in time for the daily routine.
That day they walked a mountain road, with the green plain drowned in the morning mist at their feet, and the rising sun giving a life to that view, the Cousin said : "What a beautiful morning!!" ......no more words were said that day except Lao Tzi's : "Please, never take that man on a walk with us again""

It's raining today, bliss. =)

"The rain surrounded the cabin ... with a whole world of meaning, of secrecy, of rumor. Think of it: all that speech pouring down, selling nothing, judging nobody, drenching the thick mulch of dead leaves, soaking the trees, filling the gullies and crannies of the wood with water, washing out the places where men have stripped the hillside. Nobody started it, nobody is going to stop it. It will talk as long as it wants, the rain. As long as it talks I am going to listen."

"Far back past deep, dark, silent trees
where no city's seed has e're been sown,
in a forest by the crashing seas,
there lives the hermit all alone.
Wouldn't leave if, per chance, he could;
the slightest change would raise his ire.
Content to wander in the wood,
to dream alone beside the fire."


~ R. Logue

Saw this series recently, the quote in this poster just describes is so nicely...

"A whistle blows, recalling a thousand emotions crowded in their hearts
The train waddles along the stellar ocean with the endless dreams and romances aboard
Into their childhood which everyone has passed through once
they started a journey, the mysterious lady Maetel and Tetsuro"

"Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer."
