Revenge Doesn’t Work, So I Love The Worst

Posted in Uncategorized on March 27, 2020 by marksamuels

Don’t try getting even with those who have annoyed you in the past. I’ve been there. It’s always a further disappointment, even if you “succeed”. Try reaching out with kindness and understanding instead. And even if they don’t respond, it’s still good in the greater scheme of things. Left, Right and Centre haters: take note.

But still Dedicated to The Weird.

Stay safe and well, friends and would-be enemies alike; you’re all still in my thoughts and prayers, whether you want to be or not.

Une charogne, Charles Baudelaire

Posted in Uncategorized on March 14, 2020 by marksamuels

“Many of those to whom Baudelaire finds an echo, see, in his passionate longing ‘pour trouver du nouveau’, their own aspiration towards something beyond themselves and the pitiable quest for material comfort and happiness, something in which to lose themselves, a return to a spiritual philosophy of life, to a difficult religion which will make demands on man for effort and sacrifice and will not play him false.” Enid Starkie.
