How do people go on with their lifes without alcohol?
How? I mean, HOW?

”Mirror means the acceptance of the self. So, I have lived in a house without mirrors because I couldn’t stand, I couldn’t accept myself. The mirror was an enemy. Now, the mirror cannot be your enemy, the mirror has to be your friend, otherwise you are badly off. So instead of seeing the mirror as a symbol of vanity-no danger there-I saw the mirror as a symbol of acceptance. So that when I hold the mirror to you, when the critics and the interviewers and the film-makers come and they ask me inappropriate questions. I take my mirror and I hold it up to them and I say don’t project on me. You see this mirror here? It is not out of vanity-it is a deforming mirror. It doesn’t reflect me, it reflects somebody else. It reflects a kind of monstrous image of myself. So I can play with that.”
- Louise Bourgeois, Destruction of the Father. Reconstruction of the Father

Sometimes loneliness is all there is…

”This was freedom. Losing all hope was freedom. If I didn’t say anything, people in a group assumed the worst. They cried harder. I cried harder. Look up into the stars and you’re gone.”

”I can sympathize with Ken Kesey who once said that he stopped writing because he was tired of being a seismograph—an instrument that measures rumblings from a great distance. He said he wanted to be a lightning rod.”
- Tom Wolfe
”Because I, a mestiza,
continually walk out of one culture
and into another,
because I am in all cultures at the same time,
alma entre dos mundos, tres, cuatro,
me zumba la cabeza con lo contradictorio.
Estoy norteada por todas las voces que me hablan
simultáneamente.”
- Ana Mendieta

”To the artist there is never anything ugly in nature.”

hateful:

"Perhaps the only difference between me and other people is that I’ve always demanded more from the sunset. More spectacular colors when the sun hit the horizon. That’s perhaps my only sin."
