Quote reblogged from My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck By Lightning with 24 notes

Begin the morning by saying to thyself, I shall meet with the busy-body, the ungrateful, arrogant, deceitful, envious, unsocial. All these things happen to them by reason of their ignorance of what is good and evil. But I who have seen the nature of the good that it is beautiful, and of the bad that it is ugly, and the nature of him who does wrong, that it is akin to me, not only of the same blood or seed, but that it participates in the same intelligence and the same portion of the divinity, I can neither be injured by any of them, for no one can fix on me what is ugly, nor can I be angry with my kinsman, nor hate him, For we are made for co-operation, like feet, like hands, like eyelids, like the rows of the upper and lower teeth. To act against one another then is contrary to nature; and it is acting against one another to be vexed and to turn away.
— The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, Translated by George Long. Bk 2 Written among the Quadi on the River Gran (via my-ear-trumpet)

"One thing is certain: the arts keep you alive. They stimulate, encourage, challenge, and, most of all, guarantee a future free from boredom. They allow growth and even demand it in that time of life we call maturity but too often enter it with a childish faith that what we learned in youth is sustenance enough for the years when most men are mentally famished but won’t admit it—or when they are apt to curb their hunger with the sops of complacency, security, and the assurance of death."

The practical choice isn’t between capitalism and “welfare-state socialism.” It’s between a system that’s working for a few at the top, or one that’s working for just about everyone. Which would you prefer?

Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long.

I remember once in high school I posted as my Facebook status, ” ‘Even if the whole world becomes my enemy, I will fight as I always have.’ “

I got so many comments from adults about how it was “such a good sentiment” and “quotes like this are a beautiful thing to keep in mind.”

And I’m just thinking.

It’s a quote.

By Shadow.

In a Sonic game.

It IS good, though.

Inside, we are ageless and when we talk to ourselves, it’s the same age of the person we were talking to when we were little. It’s the body that is changing around that ageless centre.
