At beyond continent of reality, there are oceans of ideas…

Today I’ll post only ideas, quotes, thoughts from the books I’m reading. Tomorrow – no posts, I’ll be on the flight to South Africa. Aaaaaa!!😶

  • He would be a great stand up-comedian. But he is a scientist. He is the author of many books: a strange novel-hybrid and philosophical writings with the hidden message “we never been modern”. He reminds about monsieur Hulot from the movies of Jacques Tatis. And his name is Bruno Latour, who said about himself: “People are always saying that my books are provocative, yes it is, but they are also forgetting that I’m right” and “A human being doesn’t discover the knowledge – a human being produces the knowledge.”

“You who are on the inside, this world terrifies you because, according to you, it’s ‘without a divine master’. But don’t you see that it’s also without a human master? You who are on the outside, this call for renewal of ‘God’ horrifies you because, according to you, it would bring back the old tyranny of the divine. Don’t you see that this world is forever without a creator?” Bruno Latour

  • I’m not the same person I was yesterday. My thoughts are ‘created’. Me and only me can choose how people will see me. All changes begins inside. Your thoughts about other people are the message to yourself about yourself.
  • Whenever I look at the ocean, I always want to talk to people, but when I’m talking to people, I always want to look at the ocean.
  • Everyone who has ‘something/someone’ is afraid of losing it. And people with ‘nothing’ are worried they’ll forever have nothing. Everyone is the same.
  • I’d once been told that if a man wanted something he did not have, no matter how elusive that thing was, if his feet do not restrain him from chasing it, he would eventually grab it.
  • I once heard that when fear takes possession of the heart of a person, it diminishes them. This could be said of my brother, for when the fear took possession of his heart, it robbed him of many things – his peace, his well-being, his relationships, his health, and even his faith.
  • Nothing happens more than once.
  • Why do you want to write? What forces you? “A sense of wonder”!
  • Always finish a chapter with ‘Cliffhanger‘!! The term ‘cliffhanger’ is known to have originated from Thomas Hardy’s novel A Pair Of Blue Eyes in which Hardy left 1 of his protagonists, Henry Knight, hanging off a cliff staring below. The term is used for end-of-episode-situations where the plot is left what you would call ‘hanging’, so the audience becomes curious about what happens next.
  • Stig Claesson about the writing process => “The good title isn’t enough for the book. I’m writing the title of the book first…then I’m looking for a quote (motto) and I’m writing it on the next page. So there’s a third page, – waiting. There I’m starting to write my story and it better be damn good.”

  2. Enjoy South Africa, from a South African….I don’t know if you’re from there, or have ever been there, but if not, please take extra care of yourself. OH, and if you’re going to Gauteng (originally Johannesburg), try go to the lion park in 4 ways. You get to play with the small ones. Their teeth are bloody sharp, but it’s a very good experience!

  3. Plenty to digest here!
    Sometimes it’s surprising to read some of these quotes, and to realize that you have had the same thoughts, maybe different wording, but same message!
