Charmed Life Passing

Memorial Gathering

“You can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be a hundred.”

 

Woody Allen (1935 -)

"We spend our life until we're twenty deciding what parts of ourselves to put in the bag, and we spend the rest of our lives trying to get them out again."

 

Robert Bly (1926 -)

“Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.”

Henry Miller (1891 - 1980)

“Men were only made into ''men'' with great difficulty even in primitive society: the male is not naturally ''a man'' any more than the woman. He has to be propped up into that position with some ingenuity, and is always likely to collapse." 

 

Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957)

“Human Dignity has gleamed only now and then and here and there, in lonely splendor, throughout the ages, a hope of the better men, never an achievement of the majority.”

 

James Thurber (1894 - 1961)

“Everything that has a beginning has an ending.  Make your peace with that and all will be well'

 

Buddist saying

"If the world would only build temples to Machinery in the abstract then everything would be perfect. The painter and sculptor would have plenty to do, and could, in complete peace and suitably honored, pursue their trade without further trouble."

Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957)

“Normally, we do not so much look at things as overlook them....”

 

Alan Watts (1915 – 1978)

“For certain is death for the born

And certain is birth for the dead;

Therefore over the inevitable

Thou shouldst not grieve.”

 

Bhagavad Gita (250 BC - 250 AD), Chapter 2

“I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.”

Alan Watts (1915 – 1978)

"The artist is a receptacle for the emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web."
 
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)

 

 

 
He is Gone
 
You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.
 
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
 
You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes,
 
love and go on.
