Action is the crux to which all change is possible making any goal achievable
All people are innately good and forgiving but are situationally evil and relentless
And some look through a broken spyglass onto the horizon in search for gold
At the end of the day everybody is doing what they can to get by
Beasts aren’t sent with wrath because the time is short but, rather, are shaped over time from the wrath that was wrought forth within them.
Desperate times calls for more than simply desperate measures. It calls for putting one's values aside till the desperation subsides" --Mental Hell, Chapter 3
Desperate times calls for rambunctious behavior" -Mental Hell
Everyone has an idea of what you need to do with your life. Only you have the facts of what you really need to do.
Faith can't be reasoned with. Otherwise it would've been called Fact.
God has to pay a price for the monsters that we create" -Mental Hell

I adore men with values and women who are devoid of them" -James "The Buck" Bukowitz from Mental Hell

In order for one to come off as a professional at something is to vehemently disagree with other professionals. People have blind faith in confident fools
In order to fulfill on ambition, one must be effective at all dealings' became a maxim Dante got to live by, and now he is paying the price of his effectiveness and that price far beyond what he could handle."--Mental Hell, Ch 3
In our dire need to comprehend the divine, we created it, named it, clothed it, inundated it with details so trivial and punished others who disagree with it.
In our quest for wisdom, we should care lest we lose our humanity along the way

I’d like to believe that our very essence is that of love. At times it’s hard to believe when our experiences remind us of the cold, callous, selfish and liars out there who’ve crossed our paths and hurt us. These hurts have led us to protect our selves by hiding out and shunning our light, our love and our essence from the rest of the world. In the name of self-preservation we, in turn, have become cold, callous, selfish and liars, therefore passing down the cycle of pain to the next generation, forcing them to do the same to protect themselves. The cycle breaks once a single person makes the decision to be vulnerable, to be frail to be their essence, knowing that it could very well lead to a world of pain. In the end, it is worth it to one day have the world full of people who are unafraid of their light and are willing to love unconditionally without fear or consequence. This is the world I would like to live in. This is the world we owe to the future generations
Just like water in an aquarium, a mind left to stagnate brings forth death to whichever life that dwells within it

Lord save me from the minds that are plagued by good intentions
Lord save me from this abomination that I have to face in the mirror each and everyday
Mediocrity is but a by-product of the dispassionate
Nature's perfectly cruel in the most just ways
Never hurt a woman unless you absolutely and positively mean it" - James "The Buck" Bukowitz
No vice is more irksome than that of voicing one's virtues
Nothing is more relentless or as dispassionate as time
Of course God's forgiving and kind. It takes a supernatural being to be capable of such a thing.
One can't get upset at the dying fields when he is constantly warring with the rain clouds
Only a fool would sit on the sidelines hoping for something worthy of mention to happen to them
People aren't predestined with a purpose. Like an elaborate lie, we make it up as we go along
People aren't predestined with a purpose. Like an elaborate lie, we make it up as we go along
People aren’t helpless because they want to be helpless. People are helpless because it’s all they know.
People aren’t stupid. They’re ignorant.
People have a hard time ignoring a person who speaks their mind let alone forgive them for doing something they could never do
People have blind faith in confident fools
People tend to deny their personal truths because it makes them feel ugly. People will do anything to feel beautiful, even if it means having to lie to themselves
People who don’t have a certain thing will tend to see it in one of two ways: as something that they absolutely must have or something that no one should ever have
So many ways to hell and only one leading to heaven. It truly takes a Divine force to keep an imbalanced universe such as this one from collapsing in on itself
Sometimes one has to go against what is proper in order to do what is right
Start cutting corners on whatever it is you do and those corners will seek to get even with you sooner or later
The germ of genius with a definite purpose is contagious. Otherwise, it's pathogenic.
The irony of life is that no one gets out of it alive
The lord taketh and the lord taketh away. That is all" --Buck from Mental Hell
The mind holds a specific image of who we currently are, not who we are yet to become. Subconscious fears change since it can't fathom life as the new-self. In that, it will fight, create stories, excuses and limiting theories on why one should remain where they are. Why would it do such a thing? Because it's what it knows. It knows it exists in the current reality and has no guarantees that it will exist in the new one. It also knows you (its host) is alive with the current reality and has no guarantees if you will be alive if you make the transition to the new one. Just trust in that you're enabling in the divine will of the universe to unfold in order to move the world forward. Yes, your work will elevate the level of human consciousness. That is how important you are!
The mind is, by far, the most complex tool ever created. The day we’ll discover every minutia of its inner workings is the day we’ll know everything there is to know about this universe.
The mind, unlike a box, cannot simply filled whatever that you wish and then remove it once you decide it’s a hazard leaving it unscathed. Rather, it’s like a living being and what you put inside it gets ingested and assimilated. It becomes a part of it and to remove it takes a tremendous amount of consistent work and dedication only to realize that it was best not to have taken whatever it is in to begin with.
The more resistant we are to the oncoming chaos, the more we will be stuck in a constant struggle and are unable to move forward. One must embrace the chaos in open arms and once the self-destruction ensues, then self-development can follow. One can't get upset at the dying fields when he is constantly warring with the rain clouds
The object of the poet is not to accurately describe an emotion brought about from an experience, but rather, the poem is an acknowledgement that words have rendered themselves useless and the attempt to write is merely an acknowledgement of that moment
The only accidents I know of are incidents that have been subjected to a serious case of mislabeling
The path less taken disinterests me while the path frequently taken appalls me. I'd rather find a path never taken before
The secret of life isn't an attempt to explain everything but, rather, to understand that certain things can't be explained. Demanding that everything is to be dissected neath a microscope is madness. Hence the attempt to explain everything is madness.
The unintelligent have no rights to own anything let alone their own thoughts which they have no choice but to hand over to anyone. Chaos almost certainly ensues in such a case
There are no perfect people, just perfect expectations of people
To deny expression is a form of lying and a mode of suicide.
To share wisdom with the immature is like giving goldbricks to a child.
True lust knows no bounds. Marriage or otherwise" - Buck, Mental Hell
Voicing one's virtues is the deadliest of vices
We cannot simply allow the treacherous few determine the fates of themany. At such times, the virtuous should be held to equalaccountability of the vile for their inactions
We suffer not because suffering is inevitable. Suffering is inevitable when you keep trying to suppress those feelings you're afraid of. Feelings you labelled as 'bad' and believe you should have never had them in the first place. You'll never get out of this rut lest you learn to sit with the feeling no matter how horrible it feels. Give it (the feeling) the acceptance it deserves and illusion of suffering is reveled
Whether you say you can or you can't is absolutely fine as long as it's not someone other than yourself who's saying it to you
Who I am and what I am are two entirely different and distinct entities. One I happen to know quite well, the other, I fear, I know nothing about and the space between the two is that which even infinity cannot occupy
You can kill the poet but never his rhyme
