Trimming the hedge

How do you do, fellow kids?

Voy a cambiar a borrador un montón de entradas. La policía mental está por todas partes y no quiero que me den la brasa los que creen que piensan cuando sólo sienten y los universalizadores de preferencias, como ya me ha ocurrido alguna vez. En vez de esperar a que ocurra y ocultarlo, voy a ocultarlo antes de que ocurra.

Un abrazo pasivo-agresivo.

On the dichotomy of human reasoning

"But the bad thing about all religions is that, instead of being able to confess their allegorical nature, they have to conceal it; accordingly, they parade their doctrine in all seriousness as true sensu proprio, and as absurdities form an essential part of these doctrines, you have the great mischief of a continual fraud. And, what is worse, the day arrives when they are no longer true sensu proprio, and then there is an end of them; so that, in that respect, it would be better to admit their allegorical nature at once. But the difficulty is to teach the multitude that something can be both true and untrue at the same time. And as all religions are in a greater or less degree of this nature, we must recognize the fact that mankind cannot get on without a certain amount of absurdity, that absurdity is an element in its existence, and illusion indispensable; as indeed other aspects of life testify."

Arthur Schopenhauer

It's wonderful to read my own thoughts in someone else's writing, particularly in respect to things being true and untrue at the same time.

Good ol' bluntness

"i hate tumblr’s (and fuckin society’s) obsession with being ‘intellectual’
doesn’t always mean smart
and fuck that “date a girl who reads” thing
if you fall in love with a girl who drinks jack like apple juice
and likes cutting down trees and getting into fights
do that shit
love is love you bourgeois fucks"

Una entrada seria

"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion."

Molto rall .

El tiempo pasa despacito cuando no estás.
Muy despacito.
Se ensancha la conciencia para ocupar el vacío
que me dejas.
Y se llena de preguntas, despacito, y las guardo para ti.

Siete milenios después, llegas y me besas
(despacito) y enredas despacito tus manos en el pelo
de mi nuca.

Entonces yo, muy despacito, saco las preguntas
una a una
de su jaula de juguete
y vuelan torpes y contentas
a tus ojos curiosos.

Y entonces pienso:
la única manera
de vivirte más tiempo

The More Loving One

Looking up at the stars, I know quite well
That, for all they care, I can go to hell,
But on Earth, indifference is the least
We have to dread from man or beast.

How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.

Admirer as I think I am
Of stars that do not give a damn,
I cannot, now I see them, say
I missed one terribly all day.

Were all stars to disappear or die,
I should learn to look at an empty sky
And feel its total dark sublime,
Though this might take me a little time.

W. H. Auden
