We should get married
In the car (1963), Roy Lichtenstein / Mine, Beyonce ft. Drake
- Guy in commercial: I'm here to find true love.
- Charles' response: Well, that's not going to happen.
- Me: What? Why?
- Charles: You don't find true love. You make it.
- Me: Hmm. You're right. Maybe he'll make it then.
- Charles: Maybe, but it's hard to make it when you're busy looking for it.
The female doesn’t want a rich man or a handsome man or even a poet, she wants a man who understands her eyes if she gets sad, and points to his chest and say : “Here is your home country.”
50 states, 50 lines, 50 crying-all-the-time’s.
50 boys, 50 lies, 50 i’m-gonna-change-my-mind’s.
i changed my mind, i changed my mind
now i feel indifferent.
we were young, we were young
we were young we didn’t care.
is it gone? oh it’s gone.
oh, it’s floating in the air.
all that time—wasted. i wish i was a little more delicate.
i wish my name was clementine.
Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most.
Imagine how a man’s life would be if he trusted that he was loved by God. How could he interact with the poor and not show partiality, he could love his wife easily and not expect her to redeem him, he would be slow to anger because redemption was no longer at stake, he could be wise and giving with his money because money no longer represented points, he could give up on formulaic religion, knowing that checking stuff off a spiritual to-do list was a worthless pursuit, he would have confidence and the ability to laugh at himself, and he could love people without expecting anything in return. It would be quite beautiful, really.
I want this to be the essence of non-believers’ understanding of what Christians are like—and if that’s ever gonna happen, it’s gonna have to start with me choosing to not settle for mediocre; to let this quote be a change evoker instead of an ego-stroker. When words spark a light, you must fan it into vitality, feeding it until it becomes a chosen reality—a force of intentionality that’s rooted in conviction and blooming proof of redemption. I am inspired to be rewired by the gospel’s desires that should never expire because my life was meant to transpire the love and the grace that I’ve claimed to embrace.
i myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.
