Gentlemen, let's broaden our minds

Lucky you; today you get music, photos, and quotes! Best combo ever. Beats Happy Meals.

Newton Faulkner - Dream Catch Me

(not the type of thing I usually like, but it's pretty cool, not to mention mood-matching)

The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing.

~Eric Berne

*I wish I can remember how I edited that photo, because I quite like it.

"There" is no better a place than "here." When your "there" has become a "here", you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here."
~ dunno

“It is no surprise to me that hardly anyone tells the truth about how they feel. The smart ones keep themselves to themselves for good reason. Why would you want to tell anyone anything that’s dear to you? Even when you like them and want nothing more than to be closer than close to them? It’s so painful to be next to someone you feel strongly about and know you can’t say the things you want to.”

~ Henry Rollins

Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.
~ Soren Kierkegaard

“Time was passing like a hand waving from a train I wanted to be on. I hope you never think about anything as much as I think about you”

~ Jonathan Safran Foer

“There are some dreams that get stuck between your teeth when you sleep, so that when you open your mouth to yawn awake they fly right out of you.”

~ Jodi Picoult, Vanishing Acts

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
~ Dahl, The Twits

“I always knew looking back on my tears would bring me laughter, but I never knew looking back on my laughter would make me cry."

~Cat Stevens

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you.”

~Winnie the Pooh


Hey I've got a question for you. I want to know what you think is worse:

Believing in something and not standing up for it/not acting upon it,


Fiercely denying something you already know, that place deep down that's full of wisdom and intestines, is true?

:O This is awesome. I love the song. And the quotes.
You quote-freak.
And the photos, I quite like the first one too!

P.S. The second one is worse.

Fati said...

Yeah I agree.. The second one is worse.

second one is worse...

Mark said...

Where do you get your quotes from?! Wise guru.
The song is great.
I think the first one is worse. Like believing racism is bad but being prejudiced against blacks or Americans.

Maybe it depends on the situation.

Keep it up! :]

The second one, cuz if you don't stand up for something you believe in doesn't mean you stopped believing in it. So, the second one.
Love your blog

aaaaaaah Danya... the perfect thing to read after a bad day.
Simply... <3

ugh they both suck. At first I was thinking the second one because if you deny it doesn't really mean you don't believe in it, but then I remembered how painful it is to actually do that. It's as painful as not standing up for what you believe in. I'm kinda stuck there, forced to do both, if you know what I mean.

ma7jooz you do another post like this! and the song is just beautiufl.

Oh, and Danya, the singer's name is Newton in case you haven't noticed :)

Well, Samar, that's all the more of a reason for me to empathize with the poor sucker - named after the most ridiculous man in the history of humanity.

Danya A. said...

I bet he tells people to call him Newt; he's that ashamed.
