"to recreate the syntax and measure of poor human prose and stand before you speechless and intelligent and shaking with shame, rejected yet confessing out the soul to conform to the rhythm of thought in his naked and endless head" - Ginsberg
"Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of
powerful feelings...recollected in moments of tranquility"
"Why is it easier to pick up the pen when I'm not happy? Why is
dilema the aphrodisiac of the writer. I want to be happy. But I
want to write. I am finding that when I'm content, I have less to
write about. Why is this.
PARADOX!"- Brandon Boyd
"I live more on time. What is remembered later does not seem as true to me. I have such a need of truth. It must be that need of immediate recording which incites me to write almost while I am living, before it is altered, changed by distance or time"- Anais Nin
"In the world of the dreamer there is solitude: all the
exaltations and joys came in a moment of preparation for living.
They took place in solitude. But with action came anxiety and the
sense of insuperable effort made match the dream, and with that
came weariness, discouragement and the flight into solitude
again. And then in solitude, in the opium den of remembrance, the
possibility of pleasure again." - Anais Nin
"We go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continously on ant autopilot, with nothing really human required of us. Stop. Go. Walk here. Drive there. All action basically for survival. All communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient, polite manner. "Here's your change." "Paper or plastic?' "Credit or debit?" "You want ketchup with that?" I don't want a straw. I want real human moments. I want to see you. I want you to see me". - Waking Life
