Always listen to the art."

"Happiness belongs to those who are sufficient into themselves. For all external sources of happiness and pleasure are, by their very nature, highly uncertain, precarious, ephemeral and subject to chance."
Arthur Schopenhauer
Heimo Zobernig
"No one worth possessing
Can be quite possesed;
Lay that on your heart,
My young angry dear;
This truth, this hard and precious stone,
Lay it on your hot cheek,
Let it hide your tear.

Hold it like a crystal
When you are alone
And gaze in the depths of the icy stone
Long, look long and you will be blessed:
No one worth possessing
Can be quite possessed."

"You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world -
And I told you
First apply within,
To discover the world
within you.

You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars -
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars
You put yourself

It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.
Erma Bombeck
" To dream magnificently is not a gift given to all men, and even for those who possess it, it runs a strong risk of being progressively diminished by the ever-growing dissipation of modern life and by the restlessness engendered by material progress. The ability to dream is a divine and mysterious ability; because it is through dreams that man communicates with the shadowy world which surrounds him. But this power needs solitude to develop freely; the more one concetrates, the more one is likely to dream fully, deeply."
Charles Baudelaire
