But this is human life: the war, the deeds,
The disappointment, the anxiety,
Imagination’s struggles, far and nigh,
All human; bearing in themselves this good,
That they are sill the air, the subtle food,
To make us feel existence, and to shew
How quiet death is.

He cannot grow old, for he has never been young; he cannot become young, for he has already grown old; in a sense he cannot die, for indeed he has not lived; in a sense he cannot live, for indeed he is already dead.

Søren Kierkegaard, The Unhappiest One (via silencemadenietzschecry)

In my dreams the world would come alive, becoming so captivatingly majestic, free and ethereal, that afterwards it would be oppressive to breathe the dust of this painted life.

La nocturna esconde al día.

La nocturna esconde al día.

It is dreadful when something weighs on your mind, not to have a soul to unburden yourself to. You know what I mean. I tell my piano the things I used to tell you.

Frédéric Chopin

"Sin embargo, la sumisión no es el único método para evitar la sole­dad y la angustia. Hay otro método, el único que es creador y que no desem­boca en un conflicto insoluble: la relación espontánea hacia los hombres y la naturaleza; relación que une al individuo con el mundo, sin privarlo de su indivi­dualidad. Este tipo de relación -cuya expresión más digna la constituyen el amor y el trabajo crea­dor- está arraigado en la integración y en la fuerza de la personalidad total y, por lo tanto, se halla sujeto a aquellos mismos límites que existen para el crecimiento del yo."

Erich Fromm
