My Fez With Things

A Cherished Gift Bought at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey by a Dear Friend. Now the Fez Lives in the Suburbs of Detroit Posing for Pictures and Occasionally Being Worn.

Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values.  
~Ayn Rand

"People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”
~ Jim Morrison

No quote here. Just me and my fez celebrating my last girlfriend’s birthday, knowing she’s in the arms of the guy who convinced me to break up with her.

"When we are unhurried and wise, we perceive that only great and worthy things have any permanent and absolute existence, that petty pain and petty pleasure are but a shadow of reality."

It is a fact that cannot be denied: the wickedness of others becomes our own wickedness because it kindles something evil in our own hearts.
