“The capital-A Automatons of Greco-Roman myth aren’t clockwork. Their design is much more divine. They’re more intricate than robots or androids or anything else mortal humans could invent. Their windup keys are their human Masters. They aren’t mindless; they have infinite storage space. And, because they have more than one form, they’re more versatile and portable than, say, your cell phone—and much more useful too. The only thing these god-forged beings share in common with those lowercase-A automatons is their pre-programmed existence. They have a function—a function their creator put into place—a function that was questionable from the start… Continue reading
Love is a story about soul mates, a story about destiny; one written by a man from the perspective of a man, which I find to be interesting.
Maybe it’s just me, but it always seemed to me that even though women are romantic by nature, it’s as if romance itself was created by men. It is men who crave for a love so perfect that there’s no room for doubt, it is men who are capable of going to extreme lengths in order to fight for their love. It is men who believe in their feelings until the very end. Continue reading
Ask yourself this simple question: what makes that little muscle inside your chest beat? I mean, really, really beat. Insanely strong, in such a way that you can feel it furiously pumping blood inside your body. What’s your passion? What do you live for? What are you willing to die for? Continue reading
“Can’t repeat the past?…Why of course you can!” – Francis Scott Fitzgerald
I’ve been reading F. S. Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby once a year ever since I was seventeen. To say that it’s my favorite novel would be an understatement. It is one of the few pieces of literature that I consider to be perfect in every aspect.
But now, on its 90th anniversary, I don’t want to write a review. I did that a couple of years ago.
In my humble opinion, Gatsby’s story is about the past. It’s a story about obsession, it’s a story about the way we think things are supposed to happen. You know, we all have that story as to how things are supposed to unfold in our lives. The story we develop during our loneliest of nights. Gatsby had a story; one that required Daisy’s love to happen. He wanted to repeat the past just so it wouldn’t matter all the time he spent (and all that he did) after he lost her. He wanted to make so that it would be as if he never lost her at all. Continue reading

“Believe that you can run farther or faster. Believe that you’re young enough, old enough, strong enough, and so on to accomplish everything you want to do. Don’t let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself.” – John Bingham
All that we are requires faith. Not just in a religious sense, but also… self-confidence, trust, power, courage, perseverance, ambition. We must believe that we are doing the right thing. We must believe in our actions, in our thoughts, in our feelings, in our destiny.
You are what you believe in. I am what I believe in. We all are the by-products of our beliefs.
This is extremely important. What you believe in is going to determine how your future will look like. Your thoughts will shape your world for you. There is no reality other than the one we interpret ourselves.
That is all.
Believe that you are good enough.
Believe that you can do better.
Believe that you can…
And you WILL.
