Life is like photography by ILoveDoodle on Flickr.

Today, we all work because that’s what we’re told to do. But our system is broken. Every company is downsizing, outsourcing, and strapping their remaining employees with bigger workloads. The unemployed masses are left to fight for measly paychecks that come attached to uninspired, mind-numbing jobs. To the many who bought into the old ways of work, the future looks grim.

Life itself can feel a bit like a means to a photographic end.

Deviant Art is wonderfully inspiring, as always. I need to visit it more often, like in the old days.

Inspiration, to me, is an accumulation of seemingly unimportant stuff that will, at one point, make sense in a different light. To get inspired, you need to always be curious of what is happening around you, no matter how unimportant that might seem at the time.

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” – Howard Thurman (via Our Story | The Passion Project)

Rồi thì tất cả cũng là một đoạn phim đời nào đó xa xôi mà mình đã dự phần, nhưng không bao giờ quay về được nữa. Rồi mình cũng chỉ nhìn mình như nhìn một kẻ lạ đóng trong bộ phim mài mại những chi tiết quen mà thôi.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.


Ian Malcolm (Expanded)
This is the full version of the quote I drew yesterday from the book Jurassic Park. Ian Malcolm is such a great character, I think Jeff Goldblum played him pretty well in the movie, but in the book he says some mind blowing things.

A day is like a whole life. You start out doing one thing, but end up doing something else, plan to run an errand, but never get there… And at the end of your life, your whole existence has the same haphazard quality, too. Your whole life has the same as a single day.

Ian Malcolm (Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton)
