Daydreaming








Dreamers
They never learn
They never learn
Beyond, beyond the point
Of no return
Of no return

 

 

 


And it's too late
The damage is done
The damage is done

 


 

 

This goes
Beyond me
Beyond you

 

 

 

The white room
By a window
Where the sun comes
Through

 

 


We are
Just happy to serve
Just happy to serve
You

Life itself is a quotation





“Don't talk unless you can improve the silence.”






“The mind was dreaming. The world was its dream.”



 


“I am not sure that I exist, actually. I am all the writers that I have read, all the people that I have met, all the women that I have loved; all the cities I have visited.”






“Reality is not always probable, or likely.”






“Time is the substance I am made of. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.”





“Being with you and not being with you is the only way I have to measure time.”

Jorge Luis Borges

Eugene Onegin






“It's a lucky man, a very lucky man, who is committed to what he believes, who has stifled intellectual detachment and can relax in the luxury of his emotions - like a tipsy traveller resting for the night at wayside inn.”






“He filled a shelf with a small army of books and read and read; but none of it made sense. .. They were all subject to various cramping limitations: those of the past were outdated, and those of the present were obsessed with the past.”






“But even friendship like our heroes' 
Exist no more; for we've outgrown 
All sentiments and deem men zeroes-- 
Except of course ourselves alone. 
We all take on Napoleon's features, 
And millions of our fellow creatures 
Are nothing more to us than tools... 
Since feelings are for freaks and fools. 
Eugene, of course, had keen perceptions 
And on the whole despised mankind, 
Yet wasn't, like so many, blind; 
And since each rule permits exceptions, 
He did respect a noble few, 
And, cold himself, gave warmth its due.”





“..depression still kept guard on him, and chased after him like a shadow - or like a faithful wife.”







“Thus heaven's gift to us is this: That habit takes the place of bliss.”

Alexander Pushkin

Ray Man





“I believe in the relation between photography and music; And thats my inspiration.”





“It has never been my object to record my dreams, just the determination to realize them.”





“Nature does not create works of art. It is we, and the faculty of interpretation peculiar to the human mind, that see art.



 

“I like contradictions. We have never attained the infinite variety and contradictions that exist in nature. Tomorrow I shall contradict myself. That is the one way I have of asserting my liberty, the real liberty one does not find as a member of society.” 



 


“The streets are full of admirable craftsmen, but so few practical dreamers.”

Man Ray

A Mammal's Notebook








“The dandy cleans his monocle every day, a silver monocle with a lens of smoked gold, given him by a beautiful lady but, suddenly overcome with sadness, he has lost the monocle case.”






“I am tired of always dying with a broken heart.”

Erik Satie

Sunday's Manifesto





“The proletarians have nothing to loose but their chains. They have a world to win.”





“Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.”




 


“Reason has always existed, but not always in a reasonable form.”





“It is not the consciousness of men that determines their being, but, on the contrary, their social being that determines their consciousness.”






“Moments are the elements of profit”





“Necessity is blind until it becomes conscious. Freedom is the consciousness of necessity.”





“The less you eat, drink, buy books, go to the theatre or to balls, or to the pub, and the less you think, love, theorize, sing, paint, fence, etc., the more you will be able to save and the greater will become your treasure which neither moth nor rust will corrupt—your capital. The less you are, the less you express your life, the more you have, the greater is your alienated life and the greater is the saving of your alienated being.”





“The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.
[These words are also inscribed upon his grave]”

Karl Marx
