“I believe in looking reality straight in the eye and denying it.”
— Garrison Keillor
“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.”
“‘You have plenty of courage, I am sure,’ answered Oz. ‘All you need is confidence in yourself. There is no living thing that is not afraid when it faces danger. The true courage is in facing danger when you are afraid, and that kind of courage you have in plenty.”
~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Frank Baum
“The Rainbow Fish shared his scales left and right. And the more he gave away, the more delighted he became. When the water around him filled with glimmering scales, he at last felt at home among the other fish.”
~ The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister
You have to remind yourself of who you want to be and what you want to do in life. You have to remind other people, even if you don’t know them or even if they don’t know you. You have to remind them who you are and what you are doing or what you want to do because otherwise you might forget yourself and then you do something completely different which is not you but you don’t know because you have stop reminding everybody and yourself of what you want to do.
You don’t just find yourself, you create yourself. There is no such thing as finding yourself. You have to create yourself, create something different which nobody has ever seen before. You have to show people your burning heart of passion. Lets all stand together and create a revolution, all those who are different, lets start a violent free revolution. Loosen that tight tie of yours and start a revolution with me. I know you want to break free from that chains from the ‘rat race’ that is holding you back. I know you are tired of the ‘rat race’. No one is going to win anyway. This is not even a race, SO STOP RUNNING. What are you running from anyway? You do the same routine everyday. Aren’t you getting tired of it? Sometimes I love routine but sometimes I hate it. I just want to rebel for a little while before I get back into routine. When I am sick of it again, I’ll break free from it and do something else. Everybody needs to break free from routine, just to recharge your batteries. If you don’t break free from it, it will kill you. And you know that big ball of radiation you call the sun. Well, if you stay in one place too long it will burst you into flames. I got that last sentence from a ‘MyChemical Romance Song’. That band may have broken up but their songs still lives forever in our hearts.
BREAK FREE FROM ROUTINE OTHERWISE YOU WILL DIE. You will know when all this routine thing is suffocating you, I hope you do otherwise you are already dead.
I cried the first time I watched this video.
Turns out, I'm smarter than a 5th grader.
