“To be a human being among human beings, and remain one forever, no matter what misfortunes befall, not to become depressed, and not to falter—this is what life is, herein lies its task.”—Fyodor Dostoevsky
“When you were telling me about Bab al-Shams (Gate of the Sun), you used to say that stories are like wine: They mature in the telling. Does that mean that the telling of a story is like the jar it’s kept in?”—Gate of the Sun by Elias Khoury
Risin’ up, straight to the top Have the guts, got the glory Went the distance, now I’m not gonna stop Just a man and his will to survive
Come on! You know you love it. And I need a song that makes me want to get out of bed and dance this morning because I have a lot of revision to do. Enjoy, and I hope your day’s plans are more interesting than mine.
This is the exact song I needed today, even if its crappy outside and it’s Monday. Damn I feel good!!
