I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.
I am interested in ideas. I am not interested in doing the same thing over and over again. The reason I take photographs is to make discoveries for myself. Always trying to piece together the puzzle, that’s where I get my rush. Once I find the answer I am looking for that’s usually it for a project, the excitement and energy is gone. I move onto something else, or away from that subject matter until I can view it with fresh eyes again.

Those who have the ability to be grateful are the ones who have the ability to achieve greatness.
You’re only given one little spark of madness, You mustn’t lose it.
"We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, ‘O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?’ Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"
Going to miss this guy. RIP Robin Williams. Thanks the childhood memories.
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself
Just because someone stumbles and loses their way doesn’t mean they are lost forever - Charles Xavier
When you’re truly passionate about an idea and also believe in yourself and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you can do it — whatever ‘it’ is — it shows. And, then people want to invest in you, take a risk on you. Then, suddenly, you’re doing the once-‘impossible’ thing, immersed in it, feeding on the high-stakes energy, loving it because you’re doing what you love to do.
Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.
