There is no proof of the existence of the soul, unless some of our questions
that have no answers reveal something like that.
One of those questions is why poetry tells about the human soul more than all the psychology of our time.
Why is it poets rather than psychologists uncover the soul, why Shakespeare, and not Freud or Jung?
Another question may be: why is it that the better off we are, the more displeased we are?
Or: Why is pessimistic philosophy born in regions of affluence?
Why is man negatively affected by comfort?
* afflueance - the state of having a great deal of money; wealth
MORALE OR MORALIZATION ?
"Why do we always appreciate morality and almost always despise
moralizing? Because morale is an action, moralization is a word. Morale is a
request from yourself, moralization is a request directed at someone else. That is why morale is always moral, and moralization is often hypocritical, thus immoral."
- amazing explanation !
ABOUT GOOD AND EVIL...
"It may sound awkward, but evil gives sense to our existence.
If there is no evil, there is no good.
If there are no good and evil, everything is reduced to mechanics, thus to non-existence (non-sense)."
One nice song.. :)
HOLY TRINITY OF ROCKERS (of 1960s,1970s, 1980) :)
„Holy trinity of rockers : 'sex , drugs and rock'n'roll ' . „
Hmm... How would it sound :
„In the name of sex, drugs and rock'n'rooooooooooooollll. Ameeeeeennn!“
ABOUT BOASTERS :)
„ About man who boast some of his virtue ( intelligence, wealth, knowledge, origin..) , says one spanish proverb :
'A horseshoe that clatters is missing a nail ' „
Really, horseshoe pay attention with clatter if there is missing a nail.. It must be very awful sound..
In same way , people pay attention with boasting and they make such clatter, that it is terrible.. And they miss „nail“ , too...
It is „nail“ in their psychic and spiritual constuction..
My dear frined, AG.. I was thinking about your suggestion to write my quotes in new blogs, but I decide to keep this style.. Reason? Maybe because this blog I feel more as my diary..
For me, it just like I think loudly while reading my books.. And if, in meanwhile, someone dropp in and join me in thinking, I feel pleasure to exchange opinions and maybe share some cup of coffe or tea.. Or maybe even some nice song or photo, for taking a break :)
I know, it is confusing and boring long for many people here, but my primary goal is to have all my thoughts on one place :P
As I know already that this blog is not popular so much, and ppl dont pay attention what I scribble here, I am going to give myself luxury of some fuzzy songs, like this one :D :
with appropriate lyric :
"Sutra je subota
nekom sasvim običan dan,
neko će na Vrelo Bosne
a neko će pospremati stan
Sutra je subota
kazu biće oblačno,
sutra ćeš, tiho, znam
reći "DA" , konacno"
ta-na-nananannnaannaaa----naa nananananana-naaa....naaa nanananana na na naaaaa ))))
About liking "bad boys" :D
"Has it ever happened to you that you actually like a rogue more than a socalled honest citizen? Have you ever wondered why?
I believe that this can only be so because a rogue is more original and more his own. He is what he is.
An honest citizen often acts according to a law that is not his own, that which was imposed upon him, and a rogue acts true to himself, according to his own law.
It does not mean that you like misdemeanours, nor that you approve of crime or sin, it is about the other part of the pair-personality.
We like a man who is his own legislator.
And conversely, we like the acts of a moral man, we do not like the man himself, since he obeys, and obedience is a form of non-freedom. Actions in accordance with a code that does not arise from the soul can easily be odious.
In the end of nineteenth-century poetry, we find certain understanding for rogues and sinners, and the understanding originates from the above. "Be whatever you want to be, but be true to yourself all the way," says Ibsen's Brand.
In certain extreme situations, a rogue seems a free man, and a moral man seems a slave to rules. Faced with a choice like this one, our spontaneous sympathies are with the free man. A slave can be pitied, but no one wishes to identify with him."
- such amazing explanation.. Thank you, dear President !!!
"Two men are gambling on the sinking Titanic. One of them is cheating.
Many people resemble these two in real life."
* resemble - look or seem like
" It was Plato who, long ago, found that it was impossible to discuss anything
before agreeing on the terminology, that is, on the meaning of notions and
- After hours of arguing, they (person X and person Y) realised that they talked about different things from the start.. From the start they disagreed in terminology ..
What a great truth said Plato...
„Someone noticed that the strongest love story always end with death of lovers, and that one which is less strong with their marrige.
Nobody has explained it successfully, yet . “
- Interesting... hmm..
Maybe you have some successfull explanation, hm? Agree or dissagree? I have no any opinion yet..
Would Romeo love Juliet sooo much if he had chance to live with her and meet her bad side.. ? (Everyone has bad side.. there is no angels among ppl)
and vice versa..
"Is there anything more beautiful than a rainbow? But the man who is inside
it, cannot see it."
- :) ... yeahh.. sometimes we are not aware good enough of so many beautiful things in our life...
"During my time in prison, I never noticed a drop in my will to live, but I
often realized that I was finding relief in the fact that I was old enough to know that death was not too far away.
This thought brought me comfort.
I treasured it like a big secret. "
- my dear Mr. President.. :(

Funny is a sober man among drunks. For in the company of drunks, the drunks are the majority and they set the standard of normality. In such company a sober man seems abnormal.
- yes really.. :) There was situations when I used to feel same as sober man..
NEW WORDS :
Real men are not rough. They have emotions and they are not ashamed of
them. Homer's famous heroes, whose heroic deeds he described so vividly, do not hide tears.
When Patroclus saw his Achaeans killed before Troy, "tears streamed
down his cheeks like water down a rocky mountain." Achilles said to him: "Why do you cry, Patroclus, like a little girl running behind her mother and crying until the mother takes her in her arms?" And when Patroclus was killed, Achilles "fell on the ground.. . and cried, with such pain that even his mother Tehida heard him in the depths of the sea." Antioch cried, "shedding bitter tears."
Homer and his heroes are no less manly because of their tears.

Intelligent devil vs. good -natured fool :D
"It is better to deal with an intelligent devil rather than a good-natured
fool," says a proverb.
This is probably so because an intelligent rascal is guided by interest, thus being, contrary to a good-natured fool, mainly predictable. You know where you stand and what you can expect.
- :D so true :D

True love only chooses to reside in a noble heart. Selfish hearts cannot love.

Nietzsche was a very sensitive man, not at all like his own Ubermensch.
Atthe age of 44 he lost his mind and-according to biographers-the immediate cause was a scene at a Turin square, when the philosopher, upon leaving his flat, saw a carriage driver giving his horse a merciless whipping. He went to the animal, embraced it gently and cried, and then just collapsed. He lived for another 12 years, but he never returned to his senses.
We are what we are, not what we think or wish we are.
- Yes.. no matter who much someone denied existing soul..
A clever man knows how to speak. A wise man knows how to be silent too.
- yea.. :)
" Two faces of things: A seemingly proper man may seem to be truly honest, and he can be a fearful Philistine who would not mind breaking many rules, but does not do that out of fear or weakness. Some condemn the tumultuous lives of others out of secret envy, because they are incapable of living that way. A weak person is usually unaware of this envy and considers it to be morality, which it is certainly not.
Two men, one weak and one strong but moral, seem to behave the same.Let us say, they do not drink or sin, the first due to either a lack of will or fear of consequences, and the second on principle, out of desire suppressed. It is difficult to tell which one it is, but one is certain: only the latter case is morality. The first is weakness, and weakness is not a virtue."
- wowww.. such amazing conclusion!!! I always wonder about conection between morality and inner strnght... This quotes opened my eyes.. Thank you dear President !!
"Between sorrow and indifference, i will choose sorrow. "
- me too...

" How big is disappointment? As big as hope was. Big hopes create big
- yeahh.. very true..
"A happy man does not have a life story. One may say: boring as a biography
of a happy man living in peaceful times. At least that is what it looks like. And is it
so? Is there a truly happy man? Is an average Swiss or an average Swede truly
happy today? Bauer and Ibsen tell us something about that."
- "boring as a biography of a happy man living in peaceful times." - cool :)
"Excessive reading does not make us smarter. Some people simply "devour"
books. They do it without the necessary intervals of thought, which are necessaryin order to "digest," to process what has been read, to absorb and comprehend it.
When people of that kind speak, pieces of Hegel, Heidegger and Marx come out
raw, unprocessed. Reading requires personal contribution as much as a bee
requires "inner" work, as well as time, to transform pollen into honey."
