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.

The Book of Secrets



I opened it to read a few old lines, they made me smile once again. Pity how things start.... to end.
I wondered, is it wrong to be simple?, is it an execuse to be taken advantage of?, or it's just that life is too complicated to be handled simply?.
For a moment, I thought I wanted to to act simple once again, but really, nothing is that simple anymore.

The strangest thing is, it reminded me that I mostly show up in dreams, in white !! so far it's a white jacket, white dress, and white blouse !! check that out meshmesha :)!?

Life is not complicated, people are :( nothing simple I agree (sigh).

White is the color of your heart...that's simply my explanation.

White, white, white is the color of my clothing,
White, white white is everything I have.
I wear white, shining and bright,
I wear white since my love's a baker.
I wear white, shining and bright,
I wear white since my love's a baker.

hahaha, thanx meshmesha, but I'm just a human being, so it can't be exactly "White" :)
Anyway, u r probably right, people are the complicated thing in life so nothing is that simple anyway.

Nice song by the way :D my love's a backer :D :D :D what a simple song
