There is a way out of the mind.

That’s why she’s in love with you, you know… There were a lot of other boys, but they didn’t scare her. She rather frightened them, I think. You’re very different. But I think you frightened her, and that’s why she likes you.

Passion makes a person stop eating, sleeping, working, feeling at peace. A lot of people are frightened because, when it appears, it demolishes all the old things it finds in its path.

No one wants their life thrown into chaos. That is why a lot of people keep that threat under control, and are somehow capable of sustaining a house or a structure that is already rotten. They are the engineers of the superseded.

Other people think exactly the opposite: they surrender themselves without a second thought, hoping to find in passion the solutions to all their problems. They make the other person responsible for their happiness and blame them for their possible unhappiness. They are either euphoric because something marvelous has happened or depressed because something unexpected has just ruined everything.

Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it - which of these two attitudes is the least destructive?

I don’t know.

our cat is fat lazy hoe but i love him

I think everyone has inner demons. Things we don’t want people to know, things our insides struggle with on a daily basis. Mistakes, setbacks, failures- the whirlpool of emotions we can hide from ourselves for so long that before we know it- they erode us, our minds, and our health. There is a false and flashy magical bubble, an isolated picture we can project to society- yet the fears we sleep with, only each of us knows. I used to have this thought about how often strangers give me strength, and how the people I love give me my motivation. Light communication between people we hardly know, a smile passed, a hand lent, a door held open…can reassure us that there are always people willing to help, even if you just focus on the subtle things- to remove you from a negative thought in your mind. So try to simmer your anger. In a way, by doing for others, you do for yourself- and there is a cycle of positive energy built.

      Then, there are the people that you love. They in a sense motivate you, perhaps indirectly build a pressure of desire on you, but they still insist you fight. They pull your courage to fight the little battles, to assure you in your weakest moments that you are still strong. They help you build a certain to desire to live, and flush those demons- or help you use your demons to your benefit. Sometimes they even create your demons. It might be true that fear and love share the same root, but keep around you the people who encourage your desire. Once your desire dies, so do you.

You have not yet discovered that you have a lot to give, and that the more you give the more riches you will find in yourself. It amazed me that you felt that each time you write a story you gave away one of your dreams and you felt the poorer for it. But then you have not thought that this dream is planted in others, others begin to live it too, it is shared, it is the beginning of friendship and love.
— Anaïs Nin

Whatever you set your mind to, your personal total obsession, this is what kills you. Poetry kills you if you’re a poet, and so on. People choose their death whether they know it or not.

Cinema is a language. It can say things-big, abstract things. And I love that about it.    I’m not always good with words. Some people are poets and have a beautiful way of saying things with words. But cinema is its own language. And with it you can say so many things, because you’ve got time and sequences. You’ve got dialogue. You’ve got music. You’ve got sound effects. You have so many tools. And you can express a feeling and a thought that can’t be conveyed any other way. Its a magical medium.    For me, it’s so beautiful to think about these pictures and sounds flowing together in time and in sequence, making something that can be done only through cinema. Its not just words or music-it’s a whole range of elements coming together and making something that didn’t exist before. It’s telling stories. It’s devising a world, an experience, that people cannot have unless they see that film.    When I catch an idea for a film, I fall in love with the way cinema can express it.    I like a story that holds abstractions, and that’s what cinema can do.
