Courage and character

You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.

Epicurus

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.

For women only

The only time a woman really succeeds in changing a man is when he is a baby.

More Salvador Dali’s quotes +

I am working on a second post about Gala and Salvador Dali. I am reading what I found about them and trying to understand what really motivated both.

I’ll tell you soon about their relationship from my point of view (based on available information).

Some people asked me why it is necessary to know about lives of famous people.

My answer is simple: we must learn about people as much as possible because it can decide our fates. Today one person can be responsible for what happens with millions or billions people.

Just remember the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. At that time we were very close to the nuclear war.

Not long ago we learned that relationships between men and women can have very serious effect on the fate of our country (remember the presidential candidate Edwards and the head of CIA general Petraeus).

When I read today about people who want to become President of my country I ask myself: “Why do they think that they are capable? What motivates them? How can we decide who is the best person for the job?”

I am not strange. I am just not normal.

A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.

One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.

People love mystery, and that is why they love my paintings.

It is not necessary for the public to know whether I am joking or whether I am serious, just as it is not necessary for me to know it myself.

Let my enemies devour each other.

Ask “Do I Want to Be Married?” Every. Single. Day.

Two weeks ago I read a post by Adriana Eissa: “Ask “Do I Want to Be Married?”. Every. Single. Day.”

I liked the post and suggested Adriana to enter it in my challenge “OUR WAYS“. She kindly did it.

Please read her post. In the nearest future I am going to ask you to vote on all entries in the challenge.

A Happy Heart and Soul

Sunset Girl. Photographer Unknown. Sunset Girl. Photographer Unknown.

Crazy talk, right? No. It’s actually sound advice.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the life long commitment of a beautiful, healthy, transformative marriage but it’s never a death sentence, never was supposed to be an obligation you no longer enjoyed or questioned.

When you wake up in the morning ask yourself…

“Do I want to be married?”

“Do I want the job I have?”

“Do I like the life I live?”

“Do I want to be here, this stage of my life?”

ASK IMPORTANT QUESTIONS AND YOU’LL RECEIVE IMPORTANT ANSWERS.

If the answer is yes (and I hope it’s a yes) then you’ve recommitted yourself to something wonderful. Reinvest in that something wonderful with a fresh heart and open yourself to a new perspective.

You made the choice to continue, so do so with enthusiasm. Your resolve will be stronger for it. Appreciate that…
