Some of my favorite quotes (in no particular order)
"Shivering with sweat, cold tremors over the skin, I turn the colour of dead grass, and I'm an inch from dying."
"...Again and again...because those I care for best, do me most harm."Oscar Wilde:
"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth."
"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."
"One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry." (Ah, so true. More than not, when marriage is official on paper, things oddly seem to get worse).Rumi:
"This is love: to fly toward a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of Life. Finally, to take a step without feet."
"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make any sense."Albert Pike:
"What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal."
"Faith begins where Reason sinks exhausted."Blaise Pascal:
"Belief is a wise wager. Granted that faith cannot be proved, what harm will come to you if you gamble on its truth and it proves false? If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Wager, then, without hesitation, that He/God exists."Lord Alfred Tennyson:
"A smile abroad is often a scowl at home."
"There lives more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds."
"I the heir of all ages, in the foremost files of time."William Blake:
"To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour."
"What is now proved was once imagined."
"When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do."//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Quotes for Your Creative Drive:
Quote, "Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world!" End of quote — Archimedes.Emphasis:
Move the world, today!
Quote, "A day wasted on others is not wasted on one's self." End of quote. Charles Dickens.Emphasis:
Anything you do or create — exception to the rule of what you say
to ignorant people — is not wasted time on you! especially if you're an artist or writer entertaining an audience.//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
I am still working on my poem Farewell Vanishings
, formerly Farewell Footsteps
, despite being very busy for quite some time now. One of the reasons for the name change is I found myself in the poem relating to footsteps
a little too much, therefore, I don't want it to focus on that one particular piece of imagery. I want to expand the poem more to relate to other things.
Here is a teaser excerpt from the poem:
"Softest on the grass plods, loudest on the lumber,
Farewell! light-to-heavy footsteps always leaving,
Therewith my going moments enticed right then
Like vultures in wait to pluck the muses in men,
Then peck! n' peck! at Earth to form our graves;
Would-be futures are enslaved by eternal slumber."
From - Farewell Vanishings
The poem touches up on moments throughout Life that come and go, love(s) that come and go, even the tiniest things we sometimes hear, think about, observe and dissect to understand, and how our thoughts just then came about, and later change.
I hope you'll enjoy this upcoming poem. I plan for it to be a longer piece than anything I've written before.

I am tired of deviantArt users who Favorite for the sake of favoring for
page views! If that is the case, you need not to be on here. Doing that
does not define an artist or a writer; it just makes you look desperate.
I caught on to this behavior after seeing some users Favorite my work,
and when looking through the pages upon pages within their Favorites,
they already added many other people's work after mine in a short time.
To those who do this, please take your pretentiousness somewhere else!

A stellar Fractal Artist:
Is a madwoman when it comes to creating Fractals.

PERMANENT FEATURED POETS/WRITERS:
Here are some really interesting writers/poets, equally great,
and are NOT to be assumed to favoritism in the order listed:
Is a small-letter poet extraordinaire, brief in his power of word choice
that tends to speak for everyone, whose work is exotic and profound,
and sometimes mixes archaic with modern diction: time overlapping.
Is a modern minstrel/poetic song writer whose work offers and shows
much knowledge through the eyes of an experienced wandering soul,
and is young at heart but very strong in almost everything he writes.
Is a high-spirited and sometimes experimental poet, although
random at times, she goes about writing of the smallest things in
the most eloquent of ways, most would pay no mind, pays mind.
A masterful Metal Artisan:
Are you into original, unlikely and daring metal artwork?
Then stop by Rajala's Gallery to see some of the best
uniquely designed furniture and metalwork!
Nothing he does is cast iron. It is all forged with hammers
and traditionally done with near seamless welding.
