Love Quote – “Love Someone more than Yourself” – 4/1/2022

“We are afraid of the hurt that love can cause. We are often willing to avoid it, at all costs. When thinking for this, we believe it better to be feared, than to be loved, though only the latter requires more risk. When we love someone else more than ourselves, then when the other is lost, we comprehend loss. There is no true realization of value, until what was lost is not returning. Are people so easily able to eject love from their hearts, as though it was merely a flake of debris? Why not let love attach itself, as though something unable to be freed, and as if you are barred within it?”

Quote – “Why the Cycle of Hatred is Unstoppable” – 2/23/2022

“It should be common knowledge, in our world, that no person hates without their reasons. This is the trigger to the cycle, that in being unstoppable, is so because of the existence of knowledge. If all humans were ignorant, we’d not be hateful. If all humans were omniscient, we’d have an infinite number of reasons to transform our loves into hatreds. However, there is no reason for a person to be ignorant enough to fear, while there are plenty of reasons to be knowledgeable enough to hate. Being ignorant comes with infinite excuses to not have first-hand knowledge, and to remain ignorant. There is never a reason to not bypass one’s fear to know a truth that will indeed shock them outside of their comfort. It is because in being ignorant, one keeps remaining the biggest wound for humanity to endure, being the open gap between people.”

Quote – “What is Strength?” – 4/14/2021

“If the greatest weakness of all is for the individual to believe he lacks one, then this is his greatest imperfection. Awareness of capability does not come without the same for its opposite. We are not capable if we are not also aware of how we are incapable. Pushing limits is one way to be capable, though without an awareness for weakness, there is nothing to withstand and no way to show strength.”

– Modern Romanticism

Philosophy – “Why Living in the Moment is a Sign of Low Intelligence” – 11/3/2020

“Has not the average person been aware of their steps, ahead? Is it a commitment to fear, to stay where one is? The future always looks the bleakest to those who cannot face it. They would rather see the light of the moment, as it grows larger with each waiting hour that passes.”

– Modern Romanticism

All long-term effects are the greater outcomes, regardless of one’s opinion upon them. A low intelligence is often the sign of personal disregard for responsibility. For to “live in the moment”, is to lack responsibility. How is it? Why not step forward, if one wishes to face where one lacks a choice? It is in a person’s dutifulness, to comprehend that “lacking a choice” means to do the selfless thing. It is the case, while “living in the moment” means to know what one has, though will never gain. Of wisdom, which is there in the future, makes the person comprehend that life is never lived, while we are stilled and frozen.

It must be, that in the comprehension of potential betrayal to what one holds close to heart, that to “live in the moment” is to defend oneself. A personal weakness, this is, for to be frozen, never to drag the dead weight that are one’s own memories, makes the person without a desire to take a risk. Reality is not meant to bend to one’s own decisions, though to one’s own indecisions. As in, when no one has a choice, people take a risk, and take back their freedoms. To step into the future, is that risk, and is that lack of a choice. For what nation under the shadow of a tyrant, has not restricted choice? If that be the case, then it is in the people’s dutifulness of lacking choice, to take them back. We are most responsible to do right, when control is upon us, and we can return our freedoms to us.

We are not free when we are bound to restriction, nor are we free when we lack the courage to take back what we recognize most. If we recognize darkness, then we should be willing to take the moment’s light, to reveal what awaits, ahead.

Humans are bound by their obligations to have something more. But, when all we hold is a nothingness, we are inevitably committed to take back what we know to be everything.

The long-term of effects, is always how we decide our future by abstaining from the mere moment. It is to comprehend fear, sleep with fear, and breathe fear. It is to know it, hold it, and make love to it. It is to find fear, bring it home, to understand it. If we cannot be willing to plunge our bodies into risk, we are dead. For is the corpse not stiff? Is the corpse not frozen, without movement of blood? It was due to our death, because of fear, and because we did not swallow it. We merely allowed ourselves to drown.

Quote – “Perception is not to Love” – 10/31/2020

“We are not to love, out of perception, for to perceive merely means to see the form. The form, being limited, is what perception comprehends only as such. As in, perception only sees itself, being of limitation. It is to then love, that perception is forgone, as the limitation becomes the unlimited. We are forever, in love.”

– Modern Romanticism

Quote – “Treating Love like Life” – 10/16/2020

“Treating love like life, is the same as wanting your way. You will be inclined to cheat. Then, you will lose. Then, you will play by the rules, knowing that what has been lost, was valuable, though cannot be taken back.”

– Modern Romanticism

Philosophy – “As Art and Progress are Unified” – 9/26/2020

“Pragmatism cannot at all survive, in its purist way with survivalist methods, without an artistry that would uplift the hopes of the pauper, rather than lower them.”

– Modern Romanticism

If one cannot understand it in clearness, both the arts and sciences go hand-in-hand. As in, both creativity and progress are always unified. One cannot simply state that to do away with arts, one is left with progress, or left with pragmatism. For to be one with the survivalist approach, is to the sink oneself in the mere living of it. When one lives in survival, one buries themselves in survival. One does not, as art would do, rise out of it.

To understand what the arts do upon life, it is to inspire truth to be formed of it. We live, so that we may not die. For what would be the point in living, if death was upon our doorstep? The human will to survive often comes into contact with the acceptance of inevitable defeat. That is when we embrace those closest to us. As it is, we will embrace those who were never close to us, whether of familial or through friendship, simply because they are a fellow human. We do not wish to die, alone. We deny the end, as long as possible, because the human need to be loved or to be kept inspired, is as strong as death.

If one holds pragmatism in lone importance, then one is leaning themselves towards the most pragmatic thing to do. And, that is, to end something. What is the ending? It is death. For rather than to prolong a thing, which would pertain to the continued existence of life, death comes along as pragmatic. When we call upon God to aid us during a time of desperation, we wish to be lifted. These words have been written everywhere. Love lifts us. Towards where? Towards infinity. We wish to last for as long as possible, before our end arrives.

We are beautiful, and not anymore beautiful than another, unless we have not been loved. As beautiful beings, we desire acceptance and appreciation for talents, for skills, by way of gratitude. In the name of gratitude, art has its calling. The artist who believes they create for themselves, does not. All viewers to art are seeing what has been made, with grateful eyes. Art is there for gratitude’s sake, and as it would lift life through inspiration, becomes the same as a mother who could be grateful for her child’s birth. Her grateful smile is for the gratitude of this successful creation, born from her womb. Creation of art, is creation of life. More creation of art, is made for the continual existence of life, through the inspiration it evokes.

For it is never pragmatic to prolong a life, as it is never pragmatic to prolong suffering. However, through love upon life, one comprehends that through the struggles, unification of understanding between life and death, is meant to be. People are meant to survive. Though, through love or the arts, people can be uplifted to greater realms.

Quote – “Why Respect is Objectively Earned” – 9/21/2020

“Were a person to believe respect as automatic, then they confuse it for love. It is always that a person wishes to be noticed, making them inevitably in yearning for love. Respect, however, is always earned, because were it not, we could respect anyone. We could loosely ‘respect’ the psychopath, and their ways. We could loosely ‘respect’ the pedophile, and their ways. To love any sadist, merely means to utilize criticism that would indeed back the imperfect person from their faults, to a time when they weren’t faulted. In this sense, love turns the imperfection to a perfection.”

– Modern Romanticism

Quote – “The Differences of Criticism” – 9/19/2020

“As hatred cannot be offered by use of words, then it falls to criticism to undertake speech made through use of intellect or idiocy. For when the former takes place, being of intellect, then it is the debate that stages the ground. When it is the latter taking place, being that of idiocy, there is no intellect, and there is merely the insult being hurled.”

– Modern Romanticism

Quote – “Corrupted Justice” – 9/9/2020

“The path to Justice is slender and perfidious, fraught with missteps of ambition and despair, egotism and doubt.

Should you choose this road, beware those who would waylay your hopes and disembowel your dreams.

Remain sure and remain true.”

– Path of Exile (Izaro Phrecius)
