949 – “I can explain everything better through music. You hypnotize people to where they go right back to their natural state which is pure positive, like in childhood when you got natural highs. And when you get people at their weakest point, you can preach into the subconscious what we want to say.”

-Jimi Hendrix

855 – Quote about your mind

“You’ve been given a mind of your own. You didn’t have to buy it. You didn’t have to earn it. The most powerful and entertaining tool a thing can possess and you were all given one for free. Don’t give it away for someone else to use. Don’t let someone else buy it from you for peanuts. It’s yours. Use it for yourself. It can literally create anything. It does not have the restrictions you have been taught it has. It can comprehend anything. So have fun, and f**k anyone that tries to take it away from you. Fill it with whatever you want to fill it with… and see what kind of magic you produce.”

809 – A Poem by Octavio Paz With Translation

 

Hermandad

Homenaje a Claudio Ptolomeo

Soy hombre: duro poco
y es enorme la noche.
Pero miro hacia arriba:
las estrellas escriben.
Sin entender comprendo:
también soy escritura
y en este mismo instante
alguien me deletrea.

-Octavio Paz

Homage to Claudius Ptolemy

I am a man: little do I last
and the night is enormous.
But I look up:
the stars write.
Unknowing I understand:
I too am written,
and at this very moment
someone spells me out.
