A wave on the ocean has a beginning and an end, a birth and a death… If a wave only sees its form, with its beginning and end, it will be afraid of birth and death. But if the wave sees that it is water and identifies itself with the water, then it will be emancipated from birth and death. Each wave is born and is going to die, but the water is free from birth and death.
– Thich Nhat Hanh
“To be bitter is to attribute intent and personality to the formless, infinite, unchanging and unchangeable void. We drift on a chartless, resistless sea. Let us sing when we can, and forget the rest..”
― H.P. Lovecraft
Taparica: Aren’t you afraid? Aren’t you afraid of dying?
Francisco Manoel: I never tried it..
~ Cobra Verde
The darker the night,
The brighter the stars.
The deeper the grief,
The closer is God.
If light is in your heart, you will find your way home.
You don’t think you are strong enough?
~Madame Gorski, Sucker Punch
You are safe.
It’s all safe.
~Madam Gorski, Sucker Punch
You can deny angels exist, Convince ourselves they can’t be real. But they show up anyway, at strange places and at strange times. They can speak through any character we can imagine. They’ll shout through demons if they have to. Daring us, challenging us to fight.
~Sweet Pea, Sucker Punch
Sometimes I just want someone to hug me and say, “I know its hard. You’re going to be okay. Here is chocolate and 6 million dollars.”
The pleasure that is in sorrow
is sweeter than the pleasure of pleasure itself.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley
