From real life and from reel life

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational
mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society
that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.
Albert Einstein
..
We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We
read and write poetry because we are members of the
human race. And the human race is filled with passion.
And medicine, law, business, engineering, these
are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life.
But poetry, beauty, romance, love,
these are what we stay alive for.
Professor Keating (Robin Williams) in Dead Poet’s Society

  • Intuition is sacred and I think it is probably one of the most neglected sense we have as humans.

  • Acho que Einstein tinha razão!
    E é fácil perceber porquê!!!
    E Robin Williams, sendo professor, também sabe ensinar-nos onde estão as diferenças...
    Fez-me lembrar que os avanços da ciência parecem caminhar mais aceleradamente... muito embora a espiritualidade esteja a "abrir os olhos" para não se deixar distanciar em demasia...
    Afinal... o que nos mantém vivos...

  • Terry: not only would we lead our lives differently but also that of our planet, if neglecting it ceased!

    Amaral: ela está a abrir os olhos sim, querido. Podemos sentir isto acontecer em diversos ambientes e pessoas.

  • I love these two quotations, Jonicia!
    Yes, yes, yes!!! And we writers and artists and musicians strive to make the poetry, beauty, romance, and love to keep the intuitive mind alive.
