“The limits of my language are the limits of my mind. All I know is what I have words for.”

– Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations (1953)

“No one can build for you the bridge upon which you alone must cross the stream of life, no one but you alone. To be sure, there are countless paths and bridges and demigods that want to carry you through this stream, but only at the price of your self; you would pawn and lose your self.”

– Nietzsche (via silencemadenietzschecry)

“When Jesus Christ was nailed to a cross, he said, “Forgive them, Father, they know not what they do.” What kind of a man was that? Any real man, obeying the Code of Hammurabi, would have said, “Kill them, Dad, and all their friends and relatives, and make their deaths slow and painful.”
His greatest legacy to us, in my humble opinion, consists of only twelve words. They are the antidote to the poison of the Code of Hammurabi, a formula almost as compact as Albert Einstein’s E = mc2.”

“Your true being does not lie deeply hidden within you, but rather immeasurably high above you, or at least above what you commonly take to be your ego.”

– Friedrich Nietzsche (via acrylicalchemy)

“So long as an evil deed has not ripened, the fool thinks it as sweet as honey. But when the evil deed ripens, the fool comes to grief.”

– Buddha, The Dhammapada (via dharmasimulation)

“I am accustomed to sleep and in my dreams to imagine the same things that lunatics imagine when awake.”

– Rene Descartes (via acrylicalchemy)
