I thought about writing a short and fascinating text about myself in the third person. That’s kind of weird. And boring too. So instead I picked some quotes, put them in order and created an overview about what’s going on in the world and in my mind.
“When I paint, the sea roars…”
“I have painted it all my life, at all hours of the day, at all times of the year…” “Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power…”
“See, the world is full of things more powerful than us. But if you know how to catch a ride, you can go places…” Or “you can starve to death in safety.”
“But honestly… I just don’t know what anyone’s thinking.” “Why should things be easy to understand?” “They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”
Remember, “if they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers.”
“At some point, everything’s going to go south on you. You’re going to say, ‘This is it. This is how I end.‘ Now, you can either accept that, or you can get to work. You solve the problem, and then you solve the next problem, and the next, and if you solve enough problems, you get to go home.”
“I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and…” “people only get really interesting when they start to rattle the bars of their cages.”
“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” “Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn’t matter.” “It is the small things, everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keeps the darkness at bay. Simple acts of love and kindness.” So “don’t do drugs, don’t have unprotected sex, don’t be violent. Leave that to me.” “Fuck the war.” “Explore the world.” And “walk on water but only when it freezes.”
