“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”
Mr. Tesla invites attention to-day, whether for profound investigations into the nature of electrity, or for beautiful inventions in which is offered a concrete embodiment of the latest means for attaining the ends most sought after in the distribution of light, heat, and power, and in the distant communication of intelligence. Any one desirous of understanding the trend and scope of modern electrical advance will find many clues in the work of this inventor.
If you dont have the time to read; you dont have the time or the tools to write. - On Writing —- Stephen King
—Stephen King quote (via stephenking-quotes)
“Time being of the essence in the purity of speech, sketching language is undisturbed flow from the mind of personal secret idea-words, blowing (as per jazz musician) on subject of image.” In 1957, Jack Kerouac published “Essentials of Spontaneous Prose,” in response to a request from Allen Ginsberg and William S.

it spread its wings,
and i no longer had internet connection.
in the dead of night, yeah,
that’s where the best
whisperers told their stories
to themselves lying in their
La-Z-Boys while some people
were out clubbing or working
the graveyard shift at the morgue
or security at JC Penny’s.

some television sitcom I forgot the
name of because I was
preoccupied with trying to get the
internet to work again but i needed
that thing to spread its wings again
and maybe then it would work,
but over the sound of every little
particle of earth shifting outside,
I don’t think it could hear me beckon
it to come forth and fix the mistakes
it had made. I was stuck.
that hadn’t been the first time.
