keen quotes

There’s a weight in my chest whenever you’re around, whenever my fingers find itself interlocked with yours, and whenever I am out of breath at the way you kiss me mid-sentence. You make my heart so full, so heavy that it aches, when some time ago it felt like it would forever remain hollow. You make me feel ways I never thought I’d allow myself to feel again, but more. Better, fuller, and exactly everything I never thought I’d deserve. I am grateful for our little unnamed place. You and I, somewhere deep down, I remind myself we are exactly as we should be. That you are here for good, and exactly right for me.
—  Keen Malasarte, What We Are Is Enough For Me.
Dear old love,
I want you to remember
that sometimes
I get afraid of your absence
I get afraid that once
this conversation is over
you will no longer find the need
to find me in all the chaos
To answer,
when I call
To acknowledge me,
when I am near
I get afraid
you’ll disappear again
when I slowly start
to show you my heart
that if I tell you
everything I want to say
you’ll be halfway out the door
I want you to remember,
that sometimes
to love
means to try again
even when it hurts
even when you’re terrified
of the outcome
even when you’re far away
because love waits
love surrenders
and love forgives.
—  Keen Malasarte, The Letter I Almost Sent.

See, when you meet someone
for the first time,
you don’t really imagine that they would
turn out to be someone important to you.
You don’t really assume that
when you first learn someone’s name
that after awhile you would begin to really
get to know them inside and out,
or how you begin to pick up their habits,
and start talking like them,
or finishing the food off their plates
you don’t really see these things
happening, when you first meet someone.
Without really expecting it, this someone
who was only just a stranger to you before,
can all of a sudden mean so much more,
can become someone so special,
and someone you can’t see yourself
living without.

Lawyerlarrie & Lapelosa

Are they one and the same?

Lawyerlarrie has a quotation from Anacharsis at the top of her blog. Anachasris was a Scythian philosopher in the early 6th century BC . Of course, his words about rich people being able to ignore the law are totally applicable to the 21st century.

So, who do we know in the larrydom who’s keen on quoting Greek and Roman philosophers and writing in Latin? Who likes to boast about their superior powers of critical thinking? Oh wait, that’s all of them. But…there’s only one interested in the Greeks and Romans…

Also of note is that Lawyerlarrie blocked me as soon as the blog was created. If not, I’d have satirised the hell out of that first post with the critical thinking ‘receipt’. How did Lawyerlarrie know to block me, I wonder?

Lukaku: I know what defenders are going to do before they do it

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku believes he has become a clinical goalscorer because he extensively studies opponents before coming up against them.

The Belgian, who has already secured two big money moves in his career despite being only 22, currently sits second in the Premier League goalscoring charts with 16 from 25 games. 

And the former Chelsea player says he spends a great deal of time analysing his own game and that of his opponents, insisting he can predict what defenders are going to do when he comes up against them.

“There is a company in France which films all my games and makes clips of every action that I made on the pitch,” Lukaku told the Telegraph.

“They make clips of every other player as well. Defenders from other teams and strikers throughout Europe.

"When I watch a match I know what teams are going to do, I know what their patterns are because I watch the games and I know and I see the movements.

"Like every time we play against Arsenal I know what this player or that player is going to do, the runs. And most of the time it is true.”

Lukaku has received high praise for his exploits in front of goal this season, but the former Toffees star is letting nothing get to his head.

“I am getting better at everything,” he added. “I am strong, tall, very fast. I can dribble, I can score with both feet and my head.

"I can hold up the ball so like when people say: ‘oh he’s unplayable’ I’m saying: ‘OK, I am unplayable that day but I have to try and be unplayable every single game’.”

Teeming homeowners are telling every penny and sack barely afford to pay the quoted requitement, stranglehold alone a few small fees tacked on, thusly find a unfalse company that includes every expense in the approve judge.

You also need in passage to give birth to sure the business you are owing to is registered in addition to the appropriate organization. Many states affect businesses of this type to register in there with yourselves much that they can ensure that all the rules are followed in order to provide quality all for customers.

Because if that’s the case then I don’t want this kind of modern idealization of love if it means I’d have to hide how I feel about someone all the time just to keep things interesting.
