HYMN TO ISIS
For I am the first and the last
I am the venerated and the despised
I am the prostitute and the saint
I am the wife and the virgin
I am the mother and the daughter
I am the arms of my mother
I am the barren and my children are many
I am the married woman and the spinster
I am the woman who gives birth and she who never procreated
I am the consolation for the pain of birth
I am the wife and the husband
And he is my rejection
Always respect me
For I am the shameful and the magnificent one.
At every moment of our lives we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss.
How is it possible for the beauty that was there only minutes before to vanquish so quickly?
Sometimes you get no second chance and that it's best to accept the gifts the world offers you.
If I must be faithful, I have first of all, to be faithful to myself.
If I'm looking for true love, I first have to get the mediocre love out of my systems.
Anyone who has lost something they thought was theirs forever finally come to realize that nothing really belongs to them.
It is not time time that changes man, nor knowledge; the only thing that can change someone's mind is love.
But if I don't think about love , I will be nothing.
All my life, I thought of love as some kind of voluntary enslavement… Freedom only exists when love is present. The person who gives him or herself wholly, the person who feels freest, is the person who loves the most.
In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel.
No one loses anyone because no one owns anyone. The is true freedom: Having the most important thing in the world without owning it.
There is always a right moment to stop something.
Being young inevitably means making mistakes.
Passion: it can be used to describe the beauty of an earth-shaking meeting between two people… It's there in the excitement of the unexpected , in the desire to do something with real fervor, in the certainty that one is going to realize a dream. Passion sends us signal that guide us through our lives, and it's up to me to interpret those signs.
The great aim of every human being is to understand the meaning of total love. Love is not to be found in someone else, but in ourselves; we simply awaken it.
The universe only makes sense when we have someone to share our feelings with.
Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it -- which of these two attitudes is the least destructive? I don't know.
I've learned that waiting is the most difficult bit, and I want to get used to the feeling, knowing that you're with mw, even when you're not by my side.
Profound desire, true desire is the desire to be close to someone.
What is real always finds a way of revealing itself.
I've met a man and fallen in love with him. I allowed myself to fall in love for one simple reason: I'm not expecting anything to come of it.
Important meetings are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.
The most important experiences a man can have are those that take him to the very limit; that is the only way we learn, because it requires all our courage.
It wasn't necessary to know your own demons in order to find God.
Every human being experiences his or her own desire; it is part of our personal treasure and although, as an emotion, it can drive people away… it brings those who are important to us closer. It is an emotion chosen by my soul, and it is so intense that it can infect everything and evryone around me.
The strongest love is love that can demonstrate its fragility.
If love is real, freedom will conquer jealousy and any pain it causes me.
If you want to achieve your objectives, you have to be prepared for daily dose of pain and discomfort.
Sex has come to be used as some kind of a drug: in order to escape reality, to forget about problems, to relax. And like all drugs, this is a harmful and destructive practice.
If a person wants to take drugs, in the form of sex or whatsoever, that's their problem; the consequence of their actions will be better or worse depending on the choices they make. But if we are talking in terms of making progress, we must understand that "good enough" is very different from best.
We all have a rock inside us, and in order to make love, the hands on both clocks have to be pointing to the same time… If you love another person, you don’t depend on sex act to feel good. Two people who live together and love each other need to adjust the hands of their clocks, with patience and perseverance, until they realize that making love is more than just an encounter, it is "genital embrace."
When a teacher helps someone to discover something, the teacher always learns something new too.
Ever since we were expelled from paradise, we have either been suffering, making other people suffer or watching the sufferings of others.
Man has understood that suffering, if confronted without fear, is his passport to freedom.
When I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself.
We are human beings, we are born full of guilt; we feel terrified when happiness becomes real possibility; and we die wanting to punish everyone else because we feel impotent, ill-used and unhappy.
Pain and suffering are used to justify the one thing that should bring only joy: love.
Life is too short, or too long… to allow… the luxury of living it so badly.
Original sin was not the apple that Eve ate, it was her belief that Adam needed to share precisely the thing she had tasted.
Certain things cannot be shared. Nor can we be afraid of the ocean into which we plunge our own free will; Fear cramps everyone's style. Man goes through the hell in order to understand this. Love one another, but let's not try to possess one another.
They all believe that man feels desire for only eleven minutes a day, and that they'll pay for fortune for it. That's not true; a man is also a woman, we wants to find someone, to give meaning to his life.
Bodies always understand each other, even when the souls do not.
Love was necessary if one was to experience pleasure in bed.
