Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’
The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person.
Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters (via stxxz)
Whoever thought that he had understood something of me had merely construed something out of me, after his own image.
Friedrich Nietzsche (via stxxz)
Talking about dreams, desire’s fear’s and hopes…,
Bread / Bacon / Peanut Butter / Banana / 100ml Double Cream / 2 Eggs / Butter / Oil / Powdered Sugar
Beneath the incessant parade of images, nothing.
Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment (via stxxz)
Message Of The Week
And the message for this week is as follows………. . Running is a great metaphor for life. We often bring unnecessary drama to our lives and make mountains out of mole hills for no reason confusing self preservation with passion. Life can be hard but sometimes you have to suck it up and keep it moving. As the grey hairs have begun to pepper my beard I’ve slowly begun to realise that not every adverse situation deserves a reaction and the ability to turn the other cheek is actually a strength and not a weakness.Either way I believe you perform better when you run with love and not anger in your heart. Be it work or family there will always be those who feel their sole purpose in life is to antagonise you into a negative reaction. Breath deep, smile, keep it moving and the payback will be so much sweeter. Keyboard motivational speaking lesson over but hopefully you get my meaning. Keep calm and run on. #positivity #strength #moleskine #nike #books #bridgethegap #rdc #rundemcrew
