She didn’t twerk this time, nor declare herself a “fucking whore” and proud of it, but she still classed up last night’s ceremony by asking the audience to thank their teachers then quoting what felt like the whole of the Tempest, but actually only this:
Be cheerful, sir.
Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air.
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself –
Yea, all which it inherit – shall dissolve,
And like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
"♥LIKE : José Saramago, The Cave
We say to the confused, - Know thyself-, as if knowing yourself was not the fifth and most difficult of human arithmetical operations, we say to the apathetic.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way, as if the brute realities of the world did not amuse themselves each day by turning that phrase on its head, we say to the indecisive.
Begin at the beginning, as if beginning were the clearly visible point of a loosely wound thread and all we had to do was to keep pulling until we reached the other end, and as if, between the former and the latter, we had held in our hands a smooth, continuous thread with no knots to untie, no snarls to untangle, a complete impossibility in the life of a skein, or indeed, if we may be permitted one more stock phrase, in the skein of life.
All of us are creative,
few are artists,
rare are masters.
( by Wise One )
"♥LIKE : Mameha from Memoirs Of Geisha by Arthur Golden
We create another secret world,
a place only of beauty.
The very word “geisha” means artist,
and to be a geisha
is to be judged as a moving work of art.
You cannot call yourself a true geisha
until you can stop a man
in his tracks with a single look.
" Remember, Chiyo, geisha are not courtesans.
And we are not wives. We sell our skills, not our bodies.
We create another secret world, a place only of beauty.
The very word ‘geisha’ means artist, and to be a geisha is to be judged as a moving work of art.”
