510Too much self-contemplation will make you not forget anything in your life. Never mind fretting about the mirrors. You have to be truly perverse to understand goodness, and looking endlessly into your own centrifugal self will get you there, quickly. However, I doubt you’ll ever be eloquent enough to understand the opposite point. We get stuck on perverse.– Page read by FARRAH KARAPETIAN.

509We’re not advanced, we’re just better at decorating using myths and symbols. Doubts are not more explicable now, facts aren’t less disconcerting. We’ve always known everything, our ancestors have always known everything, yet we make the same mistakes they made. We march to our tombstones with our bodily eyes looking nowhere, a little more gray, a little more complacent.– Page read by NORA MENKEN.

508Am I an inept artist? No, just dishonest and predictable. There is no secret formula to be an artist, you just have to do a good job at it and share it in the end, that’s all. There are no shortcuts. Charlatanism + ecstasy=lazy art, right?– Page read by NICHOLAS FENNESSY.

507We live frugally and then we say goodbye, that’s the goal. In reality we always aspire to quit everything, and we repetitively ask for forgiveness. Life says goodbye to us instead. And then we turn to dust. The end — Page read by CHRIS PARIS.

506Waiting with a quivering lip for answers, I melted after a string of non-words. Life is impossible at low temperature, that’s why I reached the conclusion that Silence cannot accept normal temperatures and therefore it is doomed to fall.– Page read by MAT GLEASON.

505How smart are you and I? Under duress, we become too obsessed with survival issues, neglecting creativity and love. If we stop analyzing, pondering, figuring out, measuring and weighting every issue we will become smarter. I know, you don’t believe me, do you?– Page read by SEAN RILEY.

504“It” is that place where things are divided between Blue and Green. When you return to “it”, your heart softens. You can eat pizza there all day long. By the way, any pizza is a personal pizza if you try hard and believe in yourself. But your heart is hard, you never try anything, and you don’t believe in yourself: you will never return.– Page read by AARON KUNIN.

503Can you have a long-distance relationship with someone you’ve never met? Because that’s exactly what you’re having and you do not know it. The finger of Providence is actually quite ignorant. It’s always better to hide behind a curtain.– Page read by BAILEY PARKS.

502Let me break down this low murmur for you, so you can explain if you’re either a “helper” or a “doer”. You see, you think your mental glitch is your bread-and-butter, but you cannot be any more mistaken. You have a high functioning, emotionless intellect, but your madness is as plump as a peach. Go retrace your own steps.– Page read by MELISSA RECALDE.

501There are two kinds of people in this life: people to pee in the shower and people who eat in public while lying to others. Don’t ‘please’ or ‘thank you’ them. Both have their souls in skin and bones. What else could be expected? When your friends act like little monsters, pretend they’re strangers and have no business here.– page read by TED MIRACCO.

499My muse went away to a distant place. I will be a little worthier of you now and a little less worried about my own unity. I will finally unlearn all my hobbies. I know the answer already: stop making the world better.– Page read by VALERIE NOELL.

498It’s always been hard to be bohemian. Is it harder now? Does art matter anymore? Does reading matter anymore? We want to be digitally liked. We stray away from reality and don’t feel sorry about it. Who can survive this? I’m going to take a shower now.– Page read by JEREMY MIKUSH.

497Quit pretending you’re weaker than you are. What are you ashamed of exactly? When you fill better after being ill you will be thankful. It happens all the time. You will then forget what you went through. It happens all the time.– Page read by BRETT AMORY.

496My great expectations have completely dissolved. The cause of it was me, the fault of it was mine. There are many things that I may regret in this world where no one regrets anything. But I think I’ll go for a walk instead.– Page read by TEMPE WILLIAMS.
