Quotes:"I sometimes wonder if that is what Krishna meant-
Among other things - or one way of putting the same thing:
That the future is a faded song, a Royal Rose or a lavender spray
Of wistful regret for those who are not yet here to regret,
Pressed between yellow leaves of a book that has never been opened."
- T. S. Eliot -

"But look at how soon we're all forgotten. The abyss of endless time that swallows it all. The emptiness of those applauding hands. The people who praise us; how capricious they are, how arbitrary."
- Marcus Aurelius -

"When we're deluded there's a world to escape. When we're aware, there's nothing to escape."
- Bodhidharma -

"In a time of skeptic moths and cynic rusts,
And fattened lives that of their sweetness tire
In a world of flying loves and fading lusts,
It is something to be sure of a desire."

Skepsikyma

The First round is acceptance. I will argue that john snow is the son of lyanna stark and raegar targaryen (who supposedly kidnapped her and killed her) and that Ned stark was actually johns uncle. MAJOR SPOILER ALERT for anyone who has not watched up to season 5 of the game of thrones series or/and (as the books and TV series are different) read all of the books. Thanks!...
