Theses on everything

This is the story of how my mind moves.

We are the the future’s loyal fighters,
We are the Workers of Vienna.

“Have you suffered the torment of insomnia, when you count the minutes for nights on end, when you feel alone in this world, when your drama seems to be the most important in history and history ceases to have meaning, ceases to exist?”

– Emil Cioran (via blackestdespondency)

“I had already found that it was not good to be alone, and so made companionship with what there was around me, sometimes with the universe and sometimes with my own insignificant self; but my books were always my friends, let fail all else.”

 Joshua SlocumSailing Alone around the World (via quotes-shape-us)

“¿Hasta cuándo los países latinoamericanos seguiremos aceptando las órdenes del mercado como si fueran una fatalidad del destino? ¿Hasta cuándo seguiremos implorando limosnas, a los codazos, en la cola de los suplicantes? ¿Hasta cuándo seguirá cada país apostando al sálvese quien pueda? ¿Cuándo terminaremos de convencernos de que la indignidad no paga? ¿Por qué no formamos un frente común para defender nuestros precios, si de sobra sabemos que se nos divide para reinar? ¿Por qué no hacemos frente, juntos, a la deuda usurera? ¿Qué poder tendría la soga si no encontrara pescuezo?”

Eduardo Galeano (via musadelosvientos)

“Stop worrying about your identity and concern yourself with the people you care about, ideas that matter to you, beliefs you can stand by, tickets you can run on. Intelligent humans make those choices with their brain and hearts and they make them alone. The world does not deliver meaning to you. You have to make it meaningful…and decide what you want and need and must do. It’s a tough, unimaginably lonely and complicated way to be in the world. But that’s the deal: you have to live; you can’t live by slogans, dead ideas, clichés, or national flags. Finding an identity is easy. It’s the easy way out.”

– Zadie Smith, On Beauty (via viperslang)
