Nature boy


(Delona zanemarite)


A trace of strangeness in this sense easily enters even
the most intimate relationships. In the stage of first
passion, erotic relations strongly reject any thought of
generalization: the lovers think that there has never
been a love like theirs; that nothing can be compared
either to the person loved or to the feelings for that
person. An estrangement -- whether as cause or as
consequence it is difficult to decide usually comes at
the moment when this feeling of uniqueness vanishes
from the relationship. A certain skepticism in regard to
its value, in itself and for them, attaches to the very
thought that in their relation, after all, they carry out
only a generally human destiny; that they experience an
experience that has occurred a thousand times before;
that, had they not accidentally met their particular
partner, they would have found the same significance in
another person.

Simmel, The Stranger



Za kaligrafiju je bitan trenutak raku-hitsu, kad kist prvi put takne papir: ako je pozornost prevagnula prema početku poteza, njegov će završetak biti preslab; ako prevagnula prema završetku, početak će biti preslab; ako je rascijepljena na početak i završetak, oni neće biti dobro povezani; ako je razvučena od početka prema završetku, potez će biti predugačak. Statika i dinamika, potez i mirovanje moraju biti savršeno izbalansirani - kao u no drami! Kist u ruci treba držati čvrsto, ali ne zgrčeno; odlučno, ali ne kruto. Učitelj će učeniku opetovano nepredviđeno iz ruke iščupati kist pun tuša, provući mu ga kroz šaku, da ga takvim "šokom" nauči da podsvjesno nadzire držanje kista: jer ono ne smije biti odveć labavo. Same pokrete kista ne čini šaka; oni potječu od lakta ili čak ramena: potez ne ispisuju prsti, nego cijela ruka, cijeli čovjek - u tome je jedna od tajni umjetnosti zen kista!

Devide, Japan



Nada se construye sobre piedra. Todo se construye sobre arena, pero debemos construir como si la arena fuese piedra.

Ništa nije izgrađeno na kamenu. Sve je građeno na pijesku, ali moramo graditi kao da je pijesak kamen...

Jorge Luis Borges



Najiskrenija, najljudskija i zbog toga naljepša riječ koju je igdje izgovorio čovjek jeste: "Možda" .

Sandor Marai, Dnevnik



Miss Tick sniffed. "You could say this advice is priceless," she said. "Are you listening?"
"Yes," said Tiffany.
"Good. Now...if you trust in yourself..."
"Yes?"
"...and believe in your dreams..."
"Yes?"
"...and follow your star..." Miss Tick went on.
"Yes?"
"...you'll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren't so lazy. Good-bye."

Terry Pratchett, The Wee Free Men



"So whoever loves must try to act as if he had a great work: he must be much alone and go into himself and collect himself and hold fast to himself; he must work; he must become something!"

Rilke and Benvenuta: an Intimate Correspondence



Saslušaću te, ali će biti i onoga što neću dobro primiti. Možda zato što mi nedostaje, ili imam obilnije. Dovoljno je ako sebe prihvatiš. Tako ćemo imati zajedničko ishodište. Svako ima svoju nemoć koja se ne može poreći. Možeš potpuno postojati: ako nema poricanja, ako na sve možeš reći da.

Lajos Kesegi


I was a Flower of the mountain yes when I put the rose in my hair like the Andalusian girls used or shall I wear a red yes and how he kissed me under the Moorish wall and I thought well as well him as another and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.

Joyce, Ulysses
