“I think it’s a really special thing to find love. It’s beautiful. Nothing can match it. But I want to make sure I find other things in life that I love – besides love.”
“I hate people, at a certain place in my heart, I hate them. People. Humans. I do – but it’s only because I see the blatant potential for amazing things that we could do if not for the smallest, ignorant ideas we have that we let control us. We let the smallest parts of us really infringe upon the greatness we could be doing.”
– OG Maco
“Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 90 . . . time is a concept that humans created.”
– Yoko Ono
“Friends with benefits isn’t a purely sexual relationship – It’s two people who like each other, having sex, not a random hookup. And when two people who like each other have sex, eventually someone catches feelings and everything is fucked. You might be able to treat the relationship as killing time. I might not. I may be in love with you.”
– Mila Kunis
“If you had told me when I was 10 that in the future you’d have cellphones, you can listen to music anywhere, you can make music on a computer and computers are cheap and everyone can afford them, and you can read any book and watch any movie, I would’ve thought I’m never going to be depressed again in my life. But with all these technological advances, I still figure out ways to be anxious and depressed. It’s fun but it hasn’t really made people happier.”
“The NEW American Dream is to become rich and famous by happenstance – or sex tapes – and to get there with as little work or talent as possible. And as a result, we are suffering – though many of us don’t know it – as quality becomes a notion of the past. We’re ruining art, our planet, and our health, all due to our newfound obsession with instant gratification, with the short term quick-fix.”
“Children are the future. The future of swearing.”
– Matt Tong
“I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized. I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. Every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude.“
– Bruce Lee
“So, this is the new year?… I don’t feel any different.”
– Kele Okereke
“I don’t worry. I’m a man who believes that I died 20 years ago, and I live like a man who is dead already. I have no fear whatsoever of anybody or anything.”
– Malcolm X
“Hip-hop is at its most commercial point right now. They use it in phone and calling card commercials. It’s like jazz was, really like a rebel music at one time and now it’s elevator music, so you’ll probably hear hip-hop in elevators in a minute.”
I was just watching Sunday morning programming on PBS with my seven year old younger brother and Mr. Rogers Neighborhood came on. Some time during the opening of the show when Mr. Rogers sings, my little brother all of a sudden started musing on life and mortality.
(Little Brother) “Mr. Rogers died, didn’t he?”
Being the awkward person that I am. I didn’t really know what to say.
(Little Brother) “You can’t live forever, you know”
(Myself) “That’s true-”
I was actually about to give a mini-speech on how death isn’t a bad thing and how it’s an important part of life and how we shouldn’t be afraid of it, but my little brother interrupted me.
(Little Brother) “-but you can always LIVE for the most of your life.”
He said it just like that, with the emphasis on the word “live”. I’m not even sure he fully understood the depth and significance of what he had said, and maybe I’m looking too deeply into it, but I was left speechless and contemplating on if I had really been living for the most of my life.
The introspection only lasted for a couple of minutes of so. Later on we both marveled at how cool the process of making converse sneakers was. The “Picture Picture” segment is our favorite part of the show!
Anyway, I just thought it was cool that my little brother had such an interesting view on life at his age.
Live for the most of your life.
