Charles Bukowski
“r o l l t h e d i c e

if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
otherwise, don’t even start.

if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
this could mean losing girlfriends,
wives, relatives, jobs and
maybe your mind.

go all the way.
it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
it could mean freezing on a
park bench.
it could mean jail,
it could mean derision,
mockery,
isolation.
isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance, of
how much you really want to
do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like
that.
you will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with
fire.

do it, do it, do it.
do it.

all the way
all the way.

you will ride life straight to
perfect laughter, its
the only good fight
there is.”
Charles Bukowski

J. Aleksandr Wootton, Her Unwelcome Inheritance

Christopher Isherwood
“They keep telling you, when you’re older, you’ll have experience—and that’s supposed to be so great. What would you say about that, sir? Is it really any use, would you say?"

"What kind of experience?”

“Well—places you’ve been to, people you’ve met. Situations you’ve been through already, so you know how to handle them when they come up again. All that stuff that’s supposed to make you wise, in your later years.”

“Let me tell you something, Kenny. For other people, I can’t speak—but, personally, I haven’t gotten wise on anything. Certainly, I’ve been through this and that; and when it happens again, I say to myself, Here it is again. But that doesn’t seem to help me. In my opinion, I, personally, have gotten steadily sillier and sillier and sillier—and that’s a fact.”

“No kidding, sir? You can’t mean that! You mean, sillier than when you were young?”

“Much, much sillier.”

“I’ll be darned. Then experience is no use at all? You’re saying it might just as well not have happened?”

“No. I’m not saying that. I only mean, you can’t use it. But if you don’t try to—if you just realize it’s there and you’ve got it—then it can be kind of marvelous.”
Christopher Isherwood, A Single Man

“Just remember that this relationship is based on mutual trust and respect, so never reveal your true self.”
Betsy Lerner

Susane Colasanti
“You have to be a responsible adult and support yourself because no one else is going to do it for you.”
Susane Colasanti, Take Me There

Charlotte Eriksson
“I never said it was easy to find your place in this world, but I’m coming to the conclusion that if you seek to please others, you will forever be changing because you will never be yourself, only fragments of someone you could be. You need to belong to yourself, and let others belong to themselves too. You need to be free and detached from things and your surroundings. You need to build your home in your own simple existence, not in friends, lovers, your career or material belongings, because these are things you will lose one day. That’s the natural order of this world. This is called the practice of detachment.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps

“Live Daringly! Give Boldly! Leave Love Everywhere You've Been!”
D.J. Johnson

“Be the girl you want your daughter to be. Be the girl you want your son to date. Be classy, be smart, be real, but most importantly be nice.”
Germany Kent

Christine de Pizan
“What do you care if people talk? Those who talk cannot harm you. Why should you be worried? You should only think about those things that please you. You have only one life in this world: soon you'll reach your eternal rest.”
Christine de Pizan, The Selected Writings

Lukasz Laniecki
“That’s not our role here, provide our parents with a “success story” to share at gatherings.

Our role here is to contribute the best we can to the society. Use our talents and make sure we add the greatest value possible to other people’s lives.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“They (parents) use this guilt-tripping to stop you from fulfilling your plans, but most important, from believing something they don’t (something which contradicts their beliefs)”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“We feel stuck in a rut, unable to say ‘no’ to our parents, unable to put an end to their controlling behavior, unable to grab hold of our own lives, simply because we fear that we will hurt, insult, disrespect or disappoint our parents (entire families).”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Mehmet Murat ildan
“In moments when you feel that life is unbearably heavy, surrender yourself to the circumstances for a while! When life hits you hard and makes you fall down, take a rest on the ground for a while! Momentaneous non-resistance will give you time to gather your strength!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Terry Pratchett
“If you don't turn your life into a story, you just become a part of someone else's story."
"And what if your story doesn't work?"
"You keep changing it until you find one that does.”
Terry Pratchett, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents

Lukasz Laniecki
“They (parents) want life to unfold according to what they believe. Most people want that. The last thing they want and need, is somebody (let alone their own child) telling them that their beliefs about life are bullshit / full of holes/ severely flawed.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“We grow up in a belief system according to which children should always make their parents proud and happy (instead of making themselves proud and happy) - and that’s unfortunately the belief system in most cultures.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

J.D. Salinger
“O tipo da marinha e eu dissemos um ao outro que tinha sido um prazer. Que é uma coisa que me deixa sempre lixado. Estou sempre a dizer « Prazer em conhecê-lo» a pessoas que não tive nenhum prazer em conhecer. Mas se queremos continuar vivos, temos de dizer estas tretas.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Lukasz Laniecki
“It’s safer/ easier to follow the script and complain how broken some things are in that script, than to attempt to change those things.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“None of us has an obligation to accept the definitions of ‘respect’ and ‘gratitude’ our parents espoused, especially when those definitions can be used to guilt-trip us, or when they are being used for the purpose of forcing us to do certain things (as an extortion mechanism).”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Lukasz Laniecki
“They know a lot, but they don’t know everything, and they can’t advise you on anything.

They can only tell you what they believe worked / or didn’t work for them.”
Lukasz Laniecki, You Have The Right Not To Make Your Parents Proud. A Book Of Quotes

Tim Gunn
“Taking the high road is always the best way to go. You feel better about yourself, and the world feels better about you.”

Richie Norton
“Rule 1: Be kind.

Rule 2: Don't be a doormat when they step on you.

Kindness and sticking up for yourself go hand in hand if you want happiness.”
Richie Norton

“We cannot have it all. We must live with our limitations. We cannot hold onto life with higher esteem than it deserves. We live only once, a life best served by dedicating ourselves to reducing the suffering of others, not inflicting evilness, taking satisfaction in just being, and recognizing the glory of nature.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Marie Kondō
“If you missed your chance to read a particular book, even if it was recommended to you or is one you have been intending to read for ages, this is your chance to let it go. You may have wanted to read it when you bought it, but if you haven't read it by now, the book's purpose was to teach you that you didn't need it. There is no need to finish reading books that you only got halfway through. Their purpose was to be read halfway. So get rid of all those unread books. It will be far better for you to read the book that really grabs you right now than one that you left to gather dust for years.”
Marie Kondō, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

Ruthi Postow Birch
“If it's the other guy's fault, you can't fix it. Don't blame other people for your problems. That gives them all the power. Own up to your mistakes.”
Ruthi Postow Birch, How to Build a Piano Bench
