ـ "... إن فى الإنسان منطقة عجيبة سحيقة لا تصل إليها الفضيلة ولا الرذيلة ، ولا تشع فيها شمس العقل والإرادة ، ولا ينطق لسان المنطق ، ولا تطاع القوانين والأوضاع ، ولا تتداول فيها لغة أو تستخدم كلمة ... إنما هى مملكة نائية عن عالم الألفاظ والمعاني ... كل مافيها شفاف هفاف يأتي بالأعاجيب فى طرفة عين ... يكفي أن ترن فى أرجائها نبرة ، أو تبرق لمحة ، أو ينشر شذا عطر ، حتى يتصاعد من أعماقها فى لحظة من الإحساسات والصور والذكريات ، ما يهز كياننا ويفتح نفوسنا على أشياء لا قبل لنا بوصفها ، ولا بتجسيدها ، ولو لجأ إلى أدق العبارات و أبرع اللغات ... " ـ

توفيق الحكيم

Within man lies a deep wondrous spot, to which neither virtue nor vice can reach. Upon which the sun of reason and will never rises. In which the mouth of logic never speaks, the laws and rules are never obeyed, and not a language is used nor a word is ever spoken.
It is a distant Kingdom, beyond words and meanings. With everything is a sheer murmur offering wonders in a blink. From the depths of which, suffice a single tone or a flash of mind or a scent of a perfum, to allow rise of emotions, pictures and memories, a rising that will shake our being and open ourselves to things we can neither describe nor materialize even if we used the most refined of phrases or the most skillful of languages.

Tawfiq Al-Hakim.

Is




And Always :) ,






Francesa: I was just going to have some iced tea and split the atom.

Robert Kincaid: When I think of why I make pictures, the reason that I can come up with just seems that I've been making my way here. It seems right now that all I've ever done in my life is making my way here to you.

Francesca: And in that moment, everything I knew to be true about myself up until then was gone. I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before.

Robert Kincaid: I don't want to need you, 'cause I can't have you.

Francesca: I realized love won't obey our expectations, it's mystery is pure and absolute.

Robert Kincaid: The old dreams were good dreams; they didn't work out, but glad I had them.

Robert Kincaid: Things change. They always do, it's one of the things of nature. Most people are afraid of change, but if you look at it as something you can always count on, then it can be a comfort.



A Special Dedication

To Joe , Thank You :) ... a million ;)






P.S. I meant it to be "Ballade des baladins" but couldn't find the perfect version :)

تانى

و تانى تانى تانى ... ... ... راجعين للـ "هم" تانى




بعد 8 ساعات ونص ها أستئنف حياة كانت متوقفة الـ 10 أيام اللى فاتوا

Somebody to love

Going through songs of George Michael on YouTube i found this one. I totally forgot it and haven't heared for about ten years. Queen's originally , but i've always liked his performance in it and seeing the video for the first time , i liked it even more .



One more try, George Michael

I've had enough of danger
And people on the streets
I'm looking out for angels
Just trying to find some peace
Now I think it's time
That you let me know
So if you love me
Say you love me
But if you don't just let me go...

'Cos teacher
There are things that I don't want to learn
And the last one I had
Made me cry
So I don't want to learn to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because it ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Whose teacher has told him goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

When you were just a stranger
And I was at your feet
I didn't feel the danger
Now I feel the heat
That look in your eyes
Telling me no
So you think that you love me
Know that you need me
I wrote the song, I know it's wrong
Just let me go...

And teacher
There are things
That I don't want to learn
Oh the last one I had
Made me cry
So I don't want to learn to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because it ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Whose teacher has told him goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

So when you say that you need me
That you'll never leave me
I know you're wrong, you're not that strong
Let me go

And teacher
There are things
That I still have to learn
But the one thing I have is my pride
Oh, so I don't want to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because there ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Who just isn't willing to try

I'm so cold
Inside
Maybe ... just one more try...



I Hate George Michael but Love this song.

Decision Making :D


Joe Fox: The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don't know what the hell they're doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino.
Kathleen Kelly: [exits]
Next customer in line: Tall decaf cappucino.
You've got mail quote

It's over ;(


I think i'll have to wake up :((((( my vacation is officially over an hour ago ;(((((

Good Morning Heartache , Billie Holiday

Loved this one ,

Good morning heartache
You old gloomy sight
Good morning heartache
Thought we said goodbye last night
I turned and tossed until it seems you have gone
But here you are with the dawn
Wish I forget you, but you're here to stay
It seems I met you
When my love went away
Now everyday I stop I'm saying to you
Good morning heartache whats new

Stop haunting me now
Can't shake you nohow
Just leave me alone
I've got those monday blues
Straight to sunday blues
Good morning heartache
Here we go again
Good morning heartache
You're the one
Who knows me well
Might as well get use to you hanging around
Good morning heartache...
... ... ... ... ...
Sit down

Stupid MEEEEEEEEEEEEE :@


Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

Unknown

Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped.
Elbert Hubbard (1856 - 1915)

The two most common elements in the universe are Hydrogen and stupidity.
Harlan Ellison (1934 - )

Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain.
Friedrich von Schiller (1759 - 1805)

Strange as it seems, no amount of learning can cure stupidity, and higher education positively fortifies it.
Stephen Vizinczey, An Innocent Millionaire

There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

Real stupidity beats artificial intelligence every time.
Terry Pratchett, Hogfather

I hate me

Yesterday was one of my bad days, i hate me when i lose my temper, i become explosive yet very vulnerable and that's even worse, the worse of all for me. Very tense has been my usual mood for quite some time now, but to explode, in the face of people whom i love and respect and appreciate is not my best situation. Still it happend, and i hated me for that. Despite my friend's saying it was normal and acceptable, yet , i hate me :(

Hard rock :)


Last November i wrote about something that i admit i like, rocks, i started with gypsum for "teasing" reasons ;) and the title was Soft Rock. What i really wanted since then and even before that -and was delayed for whatever reasons - was to write about what i really like; this Hard Rock, the hardest of all rocks, Diamonds.

Today, i was introduced to a Swarovski ring, and i never saw Swarovski crystal before, it was amazing and it revived this state of mind of writing about diamonds from My point of view.
I like them very much; but not for the girl's best friend concept , though very impressive economic concept i admit :) . It's just that I fell in love with the sudden glow of a diamond in face of light. I'm not an expert in diamonds but even the lowest value diamond can give me a shiver when it suddenly boooooom "Glows". I just feel happy watching this glow as if hearing music !!.
I don't know, but i feel like a blazing fire is burning inside the glowig diamond, and that this fire is cold as ice, an icy blazing fire, that's the feeling i alwayes get !! and i alwayes like it.
When i asked my friend today what she feels when seeing a crystal or a diamond glowing , she said that she doesn't feel much, like it but that's all. Well , i feel happy and light-hearted, really , and i follow the diamond with my eyes to catch a sight of every glow of it. Is that normal, apparently not, my friend laughed when i told her what i feel; and i suppose most of my friends will do :)

And by the way, this feeling has nothing to do with the size of the diamond , even the smallest can do this to me ! :)

Mahna Mahna

I LOVE this song , since i was a little girl :) and i used to tease a friend with it when we were working together in a project some years ago :)

When i saw the video lately the nonsense of it made me smile. I am like these pink snowths , i start to hum a nice song and out of the blue a Mahna Mahna comes out and starts to spoile it with its none sense. So , i guess the question IS , when will Mahna Mahna stop :D
