The Most Universal Human Characteristic..

“There are two kinds of sufferers in this world: those who suffer from a lack of life and those who suffer from an overabundance of life. I’ve always found myself in the second category. When you come to think of it, almost all human behavior and activity is not essentially any different from animal behavior. The most advanced technologies and craftsmanship bring us, at best, up to the super-chimpanzee level. Actually, the gap between, say, Plato or Nietzsche and the average human is greater than the gap between that chimpanzee and the average human. The realm of the real spirit, the true artist, the saint, the philosopher, is rarely achieved.
Why so few? Why is world history and evolution not stories of progress but rather this endless and futile addition of zeroes. No greater values have developed. Hell, the Greeks 3,000 years ago were just as advanced as we are. So what are these barriers that keep people from reaching anywhere near their real potential? The answer to that can be found in another question, and that’s this: Which is the most universal human characteristic - fear or laziness?”
From the film Waking Life (Richard Linklater, 2001)

The Light From Within..

I found this video suitable to go with the quote, so I decided to put them together..


People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

While She Was Dreaming..

Another piece that I finished it's design just now.. Well I guess this one needs a little definition..

Definition:
In the picture you can see a girl in pose of sleeping.. But Because of the the way her hair is you may also think she's falling or going through depth of water..
At the background on top you can see darkness.. That's were the girl seems to be falling from.. And then at the bottom of the background you can see light and brightness.. This is were the girl in the picture will fall..
In conclusion our character is falling to a better place.. And as long as she is asleep and this is happening in her dreams, falling will not hurt her eventough it may seem scary and dangerous..

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.

Change..




It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad..
