Kyoichi Katayama Quotes

"De pronto, tuve una horrible certeza. Por más tiempo que viviera, jamás podría esperar una felicidad mayor que la que sentía en aquel momento. Lo único que podía hacer era intentar conservarla para siempre. Me horrorizó la felicidad que sentía. Si la porción de dicha que corresponde a cada uno estaba fijada de antemano, en aquellos instantes quizá estuviera agotando la parte que a mí me correspondía para mi vida entera, Y, algún día, los mensajeros de la luna me arrebatarían a mi princesa. Entonces sólo me quedaría un tiempo tan largo como la vida eterna."

Stephen Batchelor Quotes

Quotes About Bending Reality

"When you are awake, your mind is limited. When you are dreaming, your mind is unlimited. Creation is a genius. The mind is a powerful aspect to reality, but no one can truly tell you what reality is, or how reality should be. You can only tell yourself. However, what if you can tap into your mental functions, and truly blur the line to the point, that whether you are awake or asleep, your mind makes the world real? Whats the difference between bending the world in your dream, and bending the world in reality? The truth is, there is no difference, when you live in imagination." - Author: Lionel Suggs

Quotes About David O Selznick

"She turned down her street once more, glaring at the garish lights someone had put up along their house. Might as well light the roof with "Santa Park Here". Sheesh. The closer she got to home, though, the lower her heart sank. The overly bright house looked suspiciously like... No. Oh, no. He wouldnt. He had. Light up animated animals were dotted all over her lawn. The circle of life has apparently found our power outlet. And why the fuck is there a Star of David on my roof? She wasnt exactly the most church-going member of the community, but youd think Simon would know what religion she was. After all, she knew exactly who was going to officiate at his funeral. She picked up her cell phone and called Emma. "Im going to kill him." - Author: Dana Marie Bell
