J’ai tant rêvé de toi que tu perds ta réalité.
Est-il encore temps d’atteindre ce corps vivant
Et de baiser sur cette bouche la naissance
De la voix qui m’est chère?

J’ai tant rêvé de toi que mes bras habitués
En étreignant ton ombre
A se croiser sur ma poitrine ne se plieraient pas
Au contour de ton corps, peut-être.
Et que, devant l’apparence réelle de ce qui me hante
Et me gouverne depuis des jours et des années,
Je deviendrais une ombre sans doute.
O balances sentimentales.

J’ai tant rêvé de toi qu’il n’est plus temps
Sans doute que je m’éveille.
Je dors debout, le corps exposé
A toutes les apparences de la vie
Et de l’amour et toi, la seule
qui compte aujourd’hui pour moi,
Je pourrais moins toucher ton front
Et tes lèvres que les premières lèvres
et le premier front venu.

J’ai tant rêvé de toi, tant marché, parlé,
Couché avec ton fantôme
Qu’il ne me reste plus peut-être,
Et pourtant, qu’a être fantôme
Parmi les fantômes et plus ombre
Cent fois que l’ombre qui se promène
Et se promènera allègrement
Sur le cadran solaire de ta vie.

Robert Desnos, “Corps et biens”.

“The most improper job of any man… is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.”

O the mind, mind has mountains; cliffs of fall
Frightful, sheer, no-man-fathomed. Hold them cheap
May who ne’er hung there.
I wake and feel the fell of dark, not day.
And I have asked to be
Where no storms come.

Honest – towards ourselves and whoever else is a friend to us.

Courageous – towards  the enemy.

Generous – towards the defeated.

Polite – always, this is what the four cardinal virtues want us to be.

“I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of  those who make things beautiful.”

“Whoever is dissatisfied with himself is continually ready for revenge, and we others will be his victims, if only by having to endure his ugly sight. For the sight of what is ugly makes one bad and gloomy.”

“Here and there on earth we may encounter a kind of continuation of love in which… possessive craving of two people for each other gives way to… a shared higher thirst for an ideal above them… Its right name is friendship.”

“My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati… Not merely to bear what is necessary, still less conceal it… but love it.”

“I love him whose soul squander itself, who wants no thanks and returns none, for he always gives away and does not want to preserve himself.”

“I will not deceive, even myself.”

“To create things on which time tests its teeth in vain; in form, in substance, to strive for a little immortality – I have never yet been modest enough to demand less of myself.”

If somebody says something about you and it hurts you, then it means that you’re holding a similar judgment against yourself.

What would you say is the the biggest obstacle to your success right now? A lack of time? Maybe a lack of capital? Or maybe a lack of good employees?

Nope. All wrong.

The biggest obstacle to success is a lack of optimism.
