Crazy Diamond Remix | Mindwaves of the Xiren Persuasion

Phi!osophy

I am excited by what might be, not what is, which I find boring and passé. The very static existence of what “is” leaves no room for creation; it’s the unknown that captivates me, pushes me, and drives me.
The unknown is creative paradise; it charms me, enchants me, and within me, ignites a spark of that #jenesaisquoi.

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions”

-Albert Einstein

“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”

— Into the Wild

“I pity those who dream the probable, the reasonable and the accessible more than those who fantasize about the extraordinary and remote. Those who have grandiose dreams are either lunatics who believe in what they dream and are happy, or they’re mere daydreamers whose reveries are like the soul’s music, lulling them and meaning nothing. But those who dream the possible will, very possibly, suffer real disillusion. I can’t be too disappointed over not having become a Roman emperor, but I can sorely regret never once having spoken to the seamstress who at the street corner turns right at about nine o’clock every morning.”

— Fernando Pessoa, from ‘Text 143’, The Book of Disquiet.

“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore.”

— Lady GaGa ♥

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

— Muhammad Ali

“The trouble with resisting temptation is that you may not get another chance.”

— Chaplin
