Hey, everything is fine. Just working now and saving money. How’ve you been?? Yeah, and tumblr is a little inconvenient for chatting. But we love it anyway.
All the beauty and sublimity with which we have invested real and imagined things, I will show to be the property and product of man, and this should be his most beautiful apology. Man as a poet, as a thinker, as a god, as love, as power. Oh, the regal liberality with which he had lavished gifts upon things in order to impoverish himself and make himself feel wretched! Hitherto, this has been his greatest disinterestedness, that he admired and worshipped, and knew how to conceal from himself that he it was who had created what he admired.
Our attitude toward Nature is more natural: we no longer love her for her “innocence,” her “reason,” her “beauty,” we have made her beautifully devilish and “foolish.” But instead of despising her on that account, since then we have felt more closely related to her and more familiar in her presence. She does not aspire to virtue: we therefore respect her.
To be natural means, to dare to be as immoral as Nature is.
Strive, strive, surmount the obstacles Become the essence of your goals
Pray that you may attain that destiny Fall into the coveted line
Where life is but a theme
Of pretense in lustrous guise
Claims and values
Charts of means and status
Plaques to show your strife
Do your neighbour clones approve Picture perfect illustration
Imitation of life
Where the path is evened out
All obstructions removed
Great viable citizen
Are you happy now?
Then praise your God and bow
The gleam of blinding lies
Become the product
The thing you so desire
To what length would you go to reach your goals?
What mantra will you use to justify your means?
Who will you betray to secure your dream?
What sins will you commit to avoid your sins be seen?
Do not look down
Do not look down
Or the abysmal beast of non-conformity
Might stare some unpleasant truth
Into your desensitized mind
