Words of wisdom

I won't start this post by telling you I'm sorry I was absent for three days.
I'm almost convinced that nobody noticed this, although in my soul, I'd be glad to know that there was at least one person who missed me.
These days I'm very busy, both professionally and personally speaking, and blogging is no longer a priority. I'm missing it, but what can I do, in life there are more important things than this.
I managed, a few days ago, to see,
on a friend's recommendation, The Life of David Gale movie. It's a very interesting movie and I highly recommend it. I extracted two passages from it, that impressed me and made me think about my own life.  
Read them, you won't regret it.

Fantasies have to be unrealistic... because the moment... the second... that you get what you seek... you don't... you can't want it anymore. 
In order to continue to exist... desire must have its objects perpetually absent. 
It's not the "it" that you want. It's the fantasy of "it." 
- So, desire supports crazy fantasies.   …
This is what Lacan means when he says that we are only truly happy... when daydreaming about future happiness.   ….
- Or why we say... the hunt is sweeter than the kill. Or be careful what you wish for, not because you'll get it... but because you're doomed not to want it once you do.
So the lesson of Lacan is, living by your wants will never make you happy.
What it means to be fully human is to strive to live by ideas and ideals... and not to measure your life by what you've attained in terms of your desires... but those small moments of integrity, compassion...rationality, even self-sacrifice. Because in the end, the only way that we can measure the significance of our own lives... is by valuing the lives of others.
   ... we spend our whole lives trying to stop death. 
Eating, inventing, loving, praying... fighting, killing.
But what do we really know about death?
Just that nobody comes back.
But there comes a point in life... a moment... when your mind outlives its desires... its obsessions... when your habits... survive your dreams... and when your losses...
Maybe death is a gift.

Nu o să încep acest post prin a mă scuza că am fost absentă 3 zile.
Sunt aproape convinsă că nimeni nu a observat acest lucru, deşi, în sufletul meu, m-aş bucura să ştiu că i-a fost cuiva dor de mine.
Zilele acestea sunt foarte ocupată atât din punct de vedere profesional cât şi din punct de vedere personal, iar bloggingul nu mai poate constitui o prioritate. Îi duc lipsa, dar ce pot face, în viaţă sunt lucruri mult mai importante decât acesta.

Am reuşit zilele trecute să văd filmul The Life of David Gale, la recomandarea unei prietene. Este un film foarte interesant, pe care vi-l recomand şi din care am extras două pasaje, care mi-au dat de gândit în mod deosebit. Citiţi-le, nu veţi regreta.
