You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.

Education is an admirable thing. But it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

Before making any commitment, we should ponder it from every angle and be attentive to the possible consequences. If we’ve jumped into something blindly, it’s wise to hesitate and ask, “Should I press on or draw back?” But having thought about our decision intelligently, why have any doubts? Make a well-considered choice and don’t look back. This is the wisest approach.

Si tú me olvidas - Pablo Neruda

QUIERO que sepas
una cosa.

Tú sabes cómo es esto:
si miro
la luna de cristal, la rama roja
del lento otoño en mi ventana,
si toco
junto al fuego
la impalpable ceniza
o el arrugado cuerpo de la leña,
todo me lleva a ti,
como si todo lo que existe,
aromas, luz, metales,
fueran pequeños barcos que navegan
hacia las islas tuyas que me aguardan.

Ahora bien,
si poco a poco dejas de quererme
dejaré de quererte poco a poco.

Si de pronto
me olvidas
no me busques,
que ya te habré olvidado.

Si consideras largo y loco
el viento de banderas
que pasa por mi vida
y te decides
a dejarme a la orilla
del corazón en que tengo raíces,
piensa
que en ese día,
a esa hora
levantaré los brazos
y saldrán mis raíces
a buscar otra tierra.

Pero
si cada día,
cada hora
sientes que a mí estás destinada
con dulzura implacable.
Si cada día sube
una flor a tus labios a buscarme,
ay amor mío, ay mía,
en mí todo ese fuego se repite,
en mí nada se apaga ni se olvida,
mi amor se nutre de tu amor, amada,
y mientras vivas estará en tus brazos
sin salir de los míos.

Pablo Neruda

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow —
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!
O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Stop everything and listen to this song. You won’t regret it.
"Inside Out" - Spoon - They Want My Soul (2014)

Time’s gone inside out
Time gets distorted with
This intense gravity
I don’t got time for holy rollers
Though they may wash my feet
And I won’t be their soldier

There’s intense gravity in you
(There’s intense gravity in you)
I’m just your satellite
(I’m just your satellite)

Ooh, and I know that time’s gone inside out
And now it’s only like I told you
Mmm, though they may wash my feet
They do not make me complete

Break out of character for me
Time keeps on going when
We got nothing else to give
We got nothing else to give

Ooh, cause our time’s gone inside out
I don’t make time for holy rollers
Mmm, there’s only you I need
They do not make me complete

A perfect end to a full day of sorting through development theories and  conspiracies. ONE DAY.

"It’s not about
Win or lose
Because we all lose
When they feed on the souls of the innocent
Blood-drenched pavement

..One day we’ll all be free
And proud to be
Under the same sun
Singing songs of freedom like
ONE DAY.”

Can I quote this on my paper?

<3 to Matisyahu and Bob Marley

Maroon 5 will always be one of my favorite pop acts. They get it.

Maroon 5 – “Unkiss Me” - V (2014)

If you respect me
Don’t protect me
You can tell me,
I can handle it
Stop pretending ‘cause we’re going down

If you let go
Then just let go
It’s disrespectful
How you’ve handled this
Never ending, kinda run around

I lied to my heart ‘cause I thought you felt it
You can’t light a fire, if the candle’s melted
No, you don’t have to love me if you don’t wanna
Don’t act like I mean nothing
But if you’re gonna, well, then you better

Unkiss me,
Untouch me
Untake this heart
And I’m missing
Just one thing
A brand new start

Can’t erase this,
Can’t delete this,
I don’t need this,
I can’t handle it
I just feel it that you’re over us

If I wait here,
If I see you
It won’t matter,
What’s the point of this?
We’re in pieces because you’re over us

I lied to my heart ‘cause I thought you felt it
You can’t light a fire, if the candle’s melted
No, you don’t have to love me if you don’t wanna
Don’t act like I mean nothing
But if you’re gonna, well, then you better

Unkiss me,
Untouch me
Untake this heart
And I’m missing
Just one thing
A brand new start
So unkiss me
So unkiss me

So, baby, let go
Gotta let go
It’s disrespectful
I can handle this
Never ending, kinda run around

Unkiss me,
Untouch me
Untake this heart
And I’m missing
Just one thing
A brand new start
So unkiss me
So unkiss me
Unkiss me
