We live with our conscience | On vit avec sa conscience
No matter how late it is, nothing is really late until you die.
Nothing is too late until you die.
Non ! Rien de rien
Non ! Je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait
Ni le mal tout ça m'est bien égal
"Time is life. Time never comes back. Time is an invisible asset we have.
Time is one of the most precious thing we have.
How you use your time, how you deal with your time is actually
how you deal with your life.
Le temps, c'est la vie. Le temps ne revient jamais. Le temps est une possession invisible que nous avons.
Le temps est l'une des choses les plus précieuses que nous avons.
La manière dont vous utilisez votre temps, dont vous gérez votre temps est finalement
la manière dont vous gérez votre vie."
― Humans of New York The Series
"It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
Ce n'est pas parce que les choses sont difficiles que nous n'osons pas,
c'est parce que nous n'osons pas qu'elles sont difficiles."
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
« Le spectacle soumet les hommes vivants
dans la mesure où l’économie les a totalement soumis.
Il n’est rien que l’économie se développant par elle-même. (…)
Pour amener les travailleurs au statut de
producteurs et consommateurs “libres” du temps-marchandise,
la condition préalable a été l’expropriation violente de leur temps. »
(Guy Debord, La Société du spectacle, 1967.)
The spectacle subjugates living men to itself
to the extent that the economy has totally subjugated them.
It is no more than the economy developing for itself.
The preliminary condition required for propelling workers to the status of
“free” producers and consumers of commodity time
was the violent expropriation of their own time.
(Guy Debord,Society of the Spectacle, 1967.)
In a world which really is topsy-turvy,
the true is a moment of the false.
Considered in its own terms,
the spectacle is affirmation of appearance and affirmation of all human life,
namely social life, as mere appearance.
But the critique which reaches the truth of the spectacle
exposes it as the visible negation of life,
as a negation of life which has become visible.
If I was the question, would you be my answer?
If I was the music, would you be the dancer?
If I was the student, would you be the teacher?
If I was the sinner, would you be the preacher?
I've still got a lot to learn, I admit it.
How imperfect a person am I?
Lot to learn - Luke Christopher
“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes
and having fun.”
La créativité, c'est inventer, expérimenter, grandir, prendre des risques, briser les règles, faire des erreurs,

"Sight is much more than meets the eye. It is our thoughts, our memories, our emotions, our judgements,
our experiences, our instincts. All of these aspects of who you are literally color what you see.
And what you see shapes the contours of these diverse aspects of your life."
― Isaac Lidsky
"Our vision is only actionable if we share it. Without sharing, it's just a figment of our imagination."
― Simon Sinek
"The best way to keep a prisoner from escaping is to make sure he never knows he's in prison."
― Fyodor Dostoevsky
"Don't bite off more than you can chew."
"Your value doesn't decrease based on someone's inability to see your worth."
"How odd it is that so much of what isn't said, isn't said because it is the truth."
"Great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by a team of people."
"I don't care if you are black, white, straight, gay, short, tall, skinny, fat, rich or poor.
If you are nice to me, I will be nice to you. Simple as that."
"A person who is nice to you but rude to a waiter is not a nice person."
"Anything that costs you your peace is too expensive."
"Do no correct a fool, or he will hate you.
Correct a wise man and he will appreciate you."

I like you

Beautifully answered by Buddha:
When you like a flower, you just pluck it.
But when you love a flower, you water it daily."
"When a person tells you that you hurt them,
you don't get to decide that you didn't."
― Louis C.K.
"You aren't wealthy until you have something that money can't buy."

Don't bite the hand of someone who is helping you or feeding you.
The higher we are placed, the more humbly we should walk.
Pride is concerned with who is right.
Humilty is concerned with what is right.
"“How does humility manifest itself in leadership and in life?
A humble person is more concerned about what is right than about being right,
about acting on good ideas than having the ideas,
about embracing new truth than defending outdated position,
about building the team than exalting self,
about recognizing contribution than being recognized for making it.”
― Stephen M.R. Covey
The humble man makes room for progress.
"The proud man believes he is already there."
― Ed Parker
Climb the mountain so you can see the world.
Not so the world can see you.
"True humility is being able to accept criticisms as graciously
as we accept compliments."
― Sabrina Newby
Don't be impressed by money, followers, degrees and titles.
Be impressed by humility, integrity, generosity and kindness.
You're never too important to be nice to people.
A meaningful life is not being rich, being popular, being highly educated or being perfect.
It is about being real, being humble, being strong and being able
to share ourselves and touch the lives of others.
It is only then that we could have a full, happy and contented life.
Being polite is easy. Saying "Hello, thank you, please, goodbye" doesn't kill.
Saying sorry doesn't always mean that you were wrong.
Sometimes it means you value your relationships more than your ego.
For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
Find a real meaning in what you do.
"I like simple things, books, being alone, or with somebody who understands."
Freedom. I need freedom.
Love is like the Twitter bird
You’re blue for him, only for 48 hours
First we meet, then we follow each other
We fall apart, and we end up solo
You’d best beware!
And to all those who like your posts
Plastic smiles are often blows of the hashtag
You’d best beware!
Oh Twitter friends and followers
You’ve got it wrong, you’re just popular
You’d best beware!
If you love yourself
I’d best beware!
If I love myself
We’d best beware, they’d best beware
You’d best beware
And then every man for himself
And that’s how we love, love, love, love
How we consume, -sume, -sume, -sume
Stromae - Carmen
For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through through it all
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me
You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you
[Because you loved me] Celine Dion
