“Never surrender your hopes and dreams to the fateful limitations others have placed on their own lives. The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets. Judge not by their words, but accept advice based on the evidence of actual results. Do not be surprised should you find a complete absence of anything mystical or miraculous in the manifested reality of those who are so eager to advise you. Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience.”
Anthon St. Maarten

“It would be perfect if everyone who makes love, is in love, but this is simply an unrealistic expectation. I'd say 75 percent of the population of people who make love, are not in love, this is simply the reality of the human race, and to be idealistic about this is to wait for the stars to aline and Jupiter to change color; for the Heavens to etch your names together in the sky before you make love to someone. But idealism is immaturity, and as a matter of fact, the stars may never aline, Jupiter may never change color, and the Heavens may never ever etch your names together in the sky for you to have the never-ending permission to make endless love to one another. And so the bottom line is, there really is no difference between doing something today, and doing something tomorrow, because today is what you have, and tomorrow may not turn out the way you expect it to. At the end of the day, sex is an animalistic, humanistic, passionate desire.”
C. JoyBell C.

“It had happened. I had brought the dream out into reality and it had dissolved. It was just a dream and had found no purchase in the real world where it was dependent on other people for its realization.

James Franco, Actors Anonymous

“The best way is to accept the reality for what you have rather than to run after or curse the reality for what you don't have.... Respect, love and care those who are with you !!!!!!!”

“The rules read: the world is as it is, and it should not be improved. The game of dominoes played to win, and everything else is sheer "philosophizing.”
Krleža, Miroslav

“I’d rather be a heart,
keeping my body alive and well
although I tend to get lost sometimes
in the mix of so many emotions,
yet there is still a certain beauty in loosing yourself.
I have a mind
with intellect and intelligence
but my brain does not consist of
compassion and character,
so I will live this life
with both side by side,
but my beating heart will lead the way.”

“Idea is an introduction to creativity that gives birth to reality.”
Stephen Magnus

“Abiding reality of God only comes through the moment of surrender and obedience towards the will of God, and it is at moments like this that we truly live in the reality that we are sons and daughters of God.

It is a reality that the disturbances of life and the wrong things that come are gifts from God serving His will in our lives, turning the narrow way into the Christ way!”
John M. Sheehan
