This week I’ve been doing a lot of maintenance on the backend of my website. Upgrading software, cleaning up hard drives, backing up databases, editing wikis and much more.

It is good to get back into working on my own personal blog. I’ve been tied up in steemit.com for so long.

HOW ONE SHOULD CONTEND AGAINST DIFFICULTIES

“Difficulties are what show men’s character. Therefore when a difficult crisis meets you, remember that you are as the raw youth with whom God the trainer is wrestling.

‘To what end?’ the hearer asks.

That you may win at Olympia:…”

The image of the Virgin Mary in some way represents the feminine aspect of God. To pray to the Mother Mary is to seek the submission of the feminine to the will of the masculine, and that the union of both will produce the dreams of man. The divine child of his dreams. The child that will champion his values and create the future paradise.

“Feminine virtue is nothing but a convenient masculine invention.” – Ninon de L’Enclos

“Man’s most foolish visceralism is his propensity to conflate the beautiful with the virtuous, for in doing so, he invariably sees a woman for who he’d like her to be rather than for who she is. It is this flaw of instinct in which he perceives nobility as an attendent characteristic of beauty that man costs himself considerable self-detriment.” – Unknown

“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery—isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.”

― Charles Bukowski, Factotum
