we are who we are

"they say the eyes are the mirror to your soul. bullshit. it's the hands. they are the sign of a true gentleman."

how is it like not to feel anything and at the same time to be able to create masterpieces with the help of your soul? I sometimes wonder why people, often, so very often, creators of works of art that others stare at and would not even be able to describe in words, could be such insensitive or lack even the most common of manners. I tell it from the start. I am not about to hand out names. walking the streets, one can, at times, be a party to events that may change thoughts, mentalities. or people. as a whole. I once saw a singer, strolling. his melodies talk about love, women and all the shapes and forms they can take or come to life in. one young girl went to ask for an autograph. politely, with a smile on her face and pen and paper in her hands. he, as from another world, where signs of affection are
perhaps outlawed, passed by, in an obvious change of pace, without even the slightest of gestures. almost infuriated his air dared to be breathed in and out by someone else. and I cannot help asking: where did he, then, find all those words to depict femininity and endearment, when, at such a pure display of affection, he remained cold and untouched?

people don't change. a gentleman would walk but never run.

People do change.

Actually, life’s paths are so mysterious and unique that people can instantly change and not only for a moment, but for the rest of their lives…

And sometimes people act simply (and so effortlessly) rude because they somehow feel poisoned inside or too scared to accept that they are also made of flesh and soul...

I also think that a true gentleman would always walk, never run, indeed, but also never judge.

Oh, and I might say that shoes are also the sign of a true gentleman
:), besides hands, soul, thoughts, words, actions :)

era un citat din Arthur Lustig (personajul interpretat de Robert de Niro in Marile Sperante) :)

nu l-ai (mai) pus intre ghilimele, desi observ ca e inclinat, asa ca am simtit nevoia sa-mi exprim propria parere :)

plus, noroc cu arthur lustig, m-a facut sa scriu un comment in engleza.
