I’m bored my friends! Yes, oh yes, it is Saturday night and I’m here. At my computer. How I love sitting here. Only not really.
Today I was in a pretty bad mood for various reasons. I went to the Spectrum, which should have made me sublimely happy since it is home to my favorite shop — Manga House — but my sour mood did not permit me to enjoy all of its anime and manga bliss. I bought Alison’s birthday present.
Last night I was in the mood for feeling sappy and melodramatic and romantic, so I watched Titanic. I know, I know, how lame am I?
I’m also disappointed because the person I was thinking of asking to Winter Formal is not available. Goddamn him. Now I need to think of someone else… I’ll probably end up not going. *weep*
Fun Quotes I enjoy:
“He who knows nothing, loves nothing. He who can do nothing understands nothing. He who understands nothing is worthless. But he who understands also loves, notices, sees. . . . The more knowledge is inherent in a thing, the greater the love. . . . Anyone who imagines that all fruits ripen at the same time as the strawberries knows nothing about grapes.”
“Never, in sooth, does the lover seek without being sought
by his beloved.
When the lightening of love has shot into this heart, know
that there is love in that heart.
When the love of God waxes in thy heart, beyong any doubt
God hath love for thee.
No sound of clapping comes from one hand without the
Divine Wisdom is destiny and decree made us lovers of
Because of that fore-ordainment ever part of the world
is paired with its mate.
In the view of the wise, Heaven is man and Earth woman:
Earth fosters what Heaven lets fall.
When Earth lacks heat, Heaven sends it; when she has lost
her freshness and moisture, Heaven restores it.
Heaven goes on his rounds, like a husband foragaing for
the wife’s sake;
And Earth is busy with house wiferies: she attends to
births and suckling that which she bears.
Regard Earth and Heaven as endowed with intelligence,
since they do the work of intelligent beings.
Unless these twain taste pleasure from one another, why
are they creeping together like sweethearts?
Without the Earth, how should flower and tree blossom?
What, then, would Heaven’s water and heat produce?
As God put desire in man and woman to the end that the
world should be preserved by their union,
So hath he implanted in every part of existence the desire
for another part.
Day and Night are enemies outwardly, yet both serve one
Each in love with the other for the sake of perfecting their
Without Night, the nature of Man would receive no
income, so there would be nothing for Day to Spend.”
~Muslim poet and mystic, Rumi.
