Words of Wisdom

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Anyway, it seems like one of my roads has come to it's end. I've probably been driving on it with a flat anyway, and on an empty tank. It's like I've got lots to write about, but what's the point? Sorry, I'm going on another of my bitching, whining rants aren't I? Well, maybe this one can be of service. If I have to go, at least maybe I can leave you with some parting words of wisdom? Advice? No? Well let's see...some are overused, some may be lame, some mean more to me than others, but most of these I try to abide by. Hope at least one of these makes you think.

Carpe Diem. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take. It is easy to be flexible when you're spineless. It's better to shut your mouth and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and prove it. Pay attention to what a man is, not what he has been. Actions speak louder than words, and speak fewer lies. Don't tell someone you love them unless you mean it. The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention. Honesty truly is the best policy. It is with true love as it is with a ghost; everyone talks about it, but few have seen it. Dream as if you'll live forever, Live as if you'll die today. Cuando amor no es locura, no es amor.(When love is not madness, it is not love) Take more pictures. Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours. Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Do something that scares you every day. Fight racism everywhere you find it. Everyone is necessarily the hero of his own life story. Don’t let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was. When you cease to dream, you cease to live. Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood. Just do it. It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything. Choose life. The things you own end up owning you. The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off. People who drink to drown their sorrow should be told that sorrow knows how to swim.

What happens is not as important as how you react to what happens.

Alright, enough bullshit huh? Anyway, lots of crap going on, and this line "...It has occurred to me that the more I actually live my life, the less I care to write about it." from eeecho_42 has also got me thinking.

I guess I'm going to give it a shot, and it's not as if I haven't up to this point, but I'm kind of a wreck right now. Not that you can see, I mean the body on the car's all good but the engine's falling apart and the brakes are leaking. I just hope I can get the damn thing fixed before it dies completely. Things aren't really that bad I know, it could always get worse. I'm being dramatic, whatever. Things have to change, and I've probably been bitching about that for months now. The school year's about to start and I'm hoping it'll be different, the Fenyx will rise again.

Everything happens for a reason.

Take care everyone,

Carpe Diem
