A Farewell Letter

99px_ru_photo_143129_devochka__angelochek_sidit_na_oblake_i_siplet

If for an instant God were to forget that I am rag doll and gifted me with a piece of life,

possibly I wouldn’t say all that I think, but rather I would think of all that I say. 

I would value things, not for their worth but for what they mean. 

I would sleep little, dream more, understanding that for each minute we close our eyes

we lose sixty seconds of light.

I would walk when others hold back. 

I would wake when others sleep. 

I would listen when others talk, and how I would enjoy a good chocolate ice cream! 

If God were to give me a piece of life,

I would dress simply, throw myself face first into the sun, baring not only my body but also my soul. 

My God, if I had a heart, I would write my hate on ice, and wait for the sun to show. 

Over the stars I would paint with a Van Gogh dream a Benedetti poem,

and a Serrat song would be the serenade I’d offer to the moon. 

With my tears I would water roses, to feel the pain of their thorns, and the red kiss of their petals.

My God, if I had a piece of life… 

I wouldn’t let a single day pass without telling the people I love that I love them. 

I would convince each woman and each man that they are my favorites, and I would live in love with love. 

I would show men how very wrong they are to think that they cease to be in love when they grow old, 

not knowing that they grow old when they cease to love! 

To a child I shall give wings, but I shall let him learn to fly on his own. 

I would teach the old that death does not come with old age, but with forgetting. 

So much have I learned from you, oh men…

I have learned that everyone wants to live on the peak of the mountain,

without knowing that real happiness is in how it is scaled. 

I have learned that when a newborn child squeezes for the first time with his tiny fist his father’s finger ,

he has him trapped forever. 

I have learned that a man has the right to look down on another only

when he has to help the other get to his feet. 

From you I have learned so many things, but in truth they won’t be of much use,

for when I keep them within this suitcase, unhappily shall I be dying.

Sometimes life is against you You see it turning……

Never Give Up

Sometimes life is against yoularge (9)
You see it turning……
From dark to darker
Wishing it’s just a nightmare
And soon you’ll wake up……
Wishing it’s just the night
And soon there will be light……

But you realize you were wrong
It’s all very true
It’s neither a nightmare nor the night
It’s just things are no longer right……

In a corner you sit……
Crying blood instead of tears
Waiting sadly alone
In that little seat of yours
Thinking that that would change the world……

Unfortunately that’s not true
The world just won’t change for you
The world isn’t yours….And isn’t free for you

If you want it……Go for it
Stand up and think quick
Try to change it…..to suit you
Try to fix it…….and make it yours

If you fail……Try once more
Never give up……Never lose hope
And remember it’s your goal……
Things don’t change from the first shot
And light was invented 
After a thousand try or more

“Life is all about challenges, There’s no point in living if there’s no one strong to play, It’s better if I can’t win.”

” Kuroko no Basket” quotes

“The only one who can beat me, is me alone.” 

“I am a supporting actor, a shadow. But a shadow will become darker if the light is stronger and it will make the white of the light stand out. As the shadow of the main actor, I will make you, the light, the number one in Japan.”

“ The reason I like playing basketball is because I can compete with lots of strong opponents!”

“I’ll sacrifice myself any day, to protect everyone. That’s why I came back!”

“Life is all about challenges, There’s no point in living if there’s no one strong to play, It’s better if I can’t win.”

“Man proposes, God disposes”

If you wanna climb a mountain, you obviously aim for the top but you gotta enjoy the scenery too.

Once you look up to someone, you can’t overtake them.

Don’t give up! There’s no shame in falling down! True shame is to not stand up again!

Let go and move on. We cannot enjoy the Present if we are still stuck in the Past

I want my future to find me, Not my past.

Dance Academy quotes

“Every dancer knows that being technically perfect isn’t enough. We need to know why we dance. For me it’s to be connected. I’m inspired by my friends.” 

“Its usually fear that stops you from trusting your partner, unless they have dropped you before, then its a learning experience.” 

“Its everybody’s dream, No one is going to hand it to you. You have to prove that it is special to you.” 

“You think its one moment that grows you up when really its a thousand moments and when it happens, there’s no turning back.” 

“The odds were in my favor because I now have more than a best friend, I have a sister, one who I would trust with my life.” 

“I think that’s why we do trust exercises because most of the time, the problem isn’t only with the other person. The hardest part of pas de deux is trusting yourself to trust someone else. You need someone there to steady you, to put their faith in you.”

“Last summer when I came home from the academy for the holidays, I discovered that my mom had given away most of my old toys away. She couldn’t understand why I was so traumatised. From her point of view, it wasn’t part of my life anymore. It was time to move on. But when you’re an only child, your toys becomes your friends and I wasn’t ready to move on.” 

“Success is 90% hard work and 10% raw talent.” 

“You can’t stay blaming the world , Else the world wins…” 

“I want my future to find me, Not my past.” 

“Sometimes you don’t know something is broken until its too late to ever be put back together again. You can paper over the cracks but you know they’re there waiting to find you out.” 

“My grandfather used to say, the only reward for a good life is a good life. Its your duty to work hard, right whatever wrongs you had and make it count.”

“You need someone there to steady you, to put their faith in you, so you can be extraordinary.” 

“The key to happiness is having something to do, having something to love, and having something to dream about.” 

“I don’t know why we have to pretend we don’t care about not winning. We should get to celebrate the victories and be disappointed when you lose something that matters. Because its honest and then you can move on, realising that no win can feel avoided and no loss can hurt you, unless you let it.” 

“Sometimes there’s nothing left to say. You only want to be left alone and the only person you want to hear from is silent..” 

“I don’t know why I do it, why I mess up what I want the most. I need to learn to be brave, to stand up and say what I want. Even if it is just admitting it to myself. Because that’s the only way I’m ever going to get it.”

“The thing about fear is that you can run from it. You can pretend it doesn’t exist but at some point, it will always find a way to catch up to you. I guess that’s why people go swimming with sharks and jump out of planes, Why they fall in love because the only way to conquer fear, Is to live dangerously – To stare it in the face..” 

“Dreams are complicated. I forget they only one third of the happiness puzzle. Sometimes i’m running after my dreams so fast i missed the detours that leave me to places new and unexpected. That doesn’t mean i’m going stop dreaming. Without them I’ll be lost, because there’s nothing more magical then when you catch one and get to hold it in your hands for one perfect moment.”

“Sometimes “Perfect” isn’t what we want and sometimes it can make us selfish and let other people down.” 

“Hip Hop, It’s not about steps and It’s not about technique. I don’t want you to be perfect I want you to be real.” 

“Wanting to dance isn’t enough to make you dancers. Get your head out of the clouds and start thinking critically. You have to face your physical limitation, not everyone is meant to be a dancer. Prepare yourself for a lifetime of hard-work, sacrifice and more often than not – disappointment.”

“As dancers we learn to be in control of our bodies down to the last millimeter, because if even one finger is out of alignment, it all falls apart, so you practice movements until they’re perfect. You learn to control gravity, to control pain, and refuse to let yourself get away with anything. But there’s one thing that doesn’t follow the rules, that you wish you could control but can’t – your heart.”

“So, apparently there is this basic human reaction to fear. It’s called the fight or flight response. When something scares us our first response is to run, very fast, in the opposite direction. The second response is actually much harder. It’s where you ignore every instinct and instead of running you stay and fight.”
