“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”—Lao Tzu (via brotherofosiris)
“Oh, you think darkness is your ally. You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man. By then, it was nothing to me but blinding!”—Bane, The Dark Knight Rises
“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.”—
Still one of my most favourite quotes. Attitude: It is everything.
“Most of you tense up when you encounter negative energy. That attracts even more energy that is negative. To avoid being affected by negative energy, relax. Any process of relaxation will work. Then visualize or imagine a peaceful feeling. By imagining and then experiencing the feelings you want, you will not pick up negative energy.”—Orin (via wildlikehoney)
Not sure if you've heard yet or not because it was just posted but that whole rent problem was seen by NME Magazine and they wrote an article about it. Here is the link www(.)nme(.)com/news/various-artists/65257?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=fanpage-nmenews-discriminationbullshit and you'll have to take out the brackets.
I hadn’t so thanks :) It’s kind of crazy how many media outlets have put something out about this haha. We really had no idea that it would interest so many people, we just wanted to vent a little! The guys made a really good statement on the band site (vilipend.ca) that I think captures the whole feeling about the issue.
