salvador dali

I'm going to be going to the Dali exhibit at the High Museum this weekend. Dali spearheaded...

Salvador Dalí
I found this quote from Dali, and I loved it. It led to a series of 'crazy' quotes that I found.

"Since I don't smoke, I decided to grow a mustache - it is better for the health.
However, I always carried a jewel-studded cigarette case in which, instead of tobacco, were carefully placed several mustaches, Adolphe Menjou style. I offered them politely to my friends: "Mustache? Mustache? Mustache?"
Nobody dared to touch them. This was my test regarding the sacred aspect of mustaches."

Paulo Coelho
"Anyone who lives in her own world is crazy. Like schizophrenics, psychopaths, maniacs. I mean people who are different from others.'
Like you?'
On the other hand,' Zedka continued, pretending not to have heard the remark, 'you have Einstein, saying that there was no time or space, just a combination of the two. Or Columbus, insisting that on the other side of the world lay not an abyss but a continent. Or Edmund Hillary, convinced that a man could reach the top of Everest. Or the Beatles, who created an entirely different sort of music and dressed like people from another time. Those people--and thousands of others--all lived in their own world."
~Paulo Coehlo

Dr. Seuss
"Being crazy isn't enough."
~Dr. Seuss

"Give me a museum and I'll fill it."
- Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)
"It's kind of fun to do the impossible."
- Walt Disney (1901-1966)
"Sanity may be madness but the maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be." - Don Quixote (one of my roommates favorite quotes)

a new year

This was one of my favorite books when I was little...the premise: that you choose your "new year." It's the day that feels perfect to you. My new year would be the best day of fall, when the air is at its crisp-est, the leafs have the most variety of color, and the wind blows through browning fields. And all you want to do is pour some hot soup. What a great idea though, the day that you start fresh, celebrate a new year for yourself, and plan what changes you want in the new year.

I have been receiving thoughts from from the "universe" for the past couple of months. It is by the guy who wrote The Secret if you're familiar with that book/movie. The idea is that whatever vibes you send out into the universe is what you receive back. Essentially, you will everything to happen in your life by imagining it will happen. There is a sort of truth to that I think because we see what we want to see in life, and most of what happens to you are the opportunities you choose to see. Here is the note i got yesterday, and it just cracked me up:
People who give, Lila, are given to. People who care, are cared for. And people who love... age slower, run faster, jump higher, eat healthier, tend to live in cottages, are as happy with friends as they are alone, climb more trees, skip when they could walk, kiss when they could talk, take the odd Friday off, experience faster manifestations, and are really popular with animals. And you're just the sort, Lila, we'd expect to find with lots of friends, in a tree, on an island you named after your last squirrel.

Love, baby -
The Universe

This book is the combination of the ideas that form these thoughts from the universe that brighten my day so much. They are like the yogi tea quotes i live for! Go to to sign up for notes from the universe, and if you haven't started buying yogi tea, you are way behind!
