di Michele Marsonet. “Immaginiamo dei marinai che, in mare aperto, stiano modificando la loro goffa imbarcazione da una forma circolare a una più affusolata. Per trasformare lo scafo della loro nave essi fanno uso di travi alla deriva assieme a travi della vecchia struttura. Ma non possono mettere la nave in bacino per ricostruirla da capo. Durante il loro lavoro stanno sulla vecchia struttura e lottano contro violenti fortunali e onde tempestose. Questo è il destino degli scienziati”. La metafora, di grande potere suggestivo, si deve a Otto Neurath, economista, sociologo e filosofo austriaco che fu, negli anni ’20 del secolo scorso, uno dei fondatori del Circolo di Vienna. E’ noto che tale Circolo rappresenta la fucina del neopositivismo logico, e cioé di quella corrente di pensiero che considera la riflessione sul metodo scientifico il compito principale – per non dire l’unico – della filosofia.

You’re only gonna be remembered for your actions and words, so stop thinking and wishing and start doing.
If you’ve fallen over, staying down will not get you back up.
Not matter what you’re doing, some one else is worse at it.
If some one is talking shit about you to you, crying over it will rarely make them stop. But if you cry hard enough in their face, they’ll probably get annoyed and leave you alone. That’s what I’ve seen, anyway.
Remember, it’s your feet that keep your upright. So train them to be resilient to the crap life gives you.

Life sucks, but you should still make the most of it. It’s all you’re going to get.

Review: I was so shocked with “Pink Flamingos” that it’s hard, I mean really hard to give my opinion about it. “Pink Flamingos” was so difficult to watch. I was not expecting anything like this. I felt nauseated while watching some scenes of the film and I can’t understand why this was made.
The war between Connie & Raymond Marble and Divine for the title of “The Filthiest Person Alive” almost drove me mad, because i could count with my fingers the number of minutes when happened normal things in “Pink Flamingos”.
I know that probably you think I am being too rude, mostly because “Pink Flamingos” it’s a classic and a well known cult movie but I thought it was sick and nasty. But, even though I felt nauseated with the film,
I had to admit that John…

Today is the six-year anniversary of my lowest low. I’ve been so busy with school and work and the general living of life that I almost forgot–and that’s the way it should be. But, I noticed the date on my phone. Every year I make point to quietly celebrate everything that it means to be increasingly removed from then, because in all awkwardness and sincerity and vulnerability, there are people and things I love so much in my life now that I didn’t even know existed six years ago and I am so glad to have gotten here.
