11 May


by Salvador Dalí

One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.

Salvador Dalí, born on 11 May 1904, Sun in Taurus, Moon in Gemini, Ascendant in Cancer, Spanish painter.

I don’t do drugs. I am drugs.

The only difference between me and a madman is I’m not mad.

You have to systematically create confusion, it sets creativity free. Everything that is contradictory creates life

Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.

Don’t ever discount the wonder of your tears. They can be healing waters and a stream of joy. Sometimes they are the best words the heart can speak.

All I want from you is to trust me with what little you can, and grow in loving people around you with the same love I share with you. It’s not your job to change them, or to convince them. You are free to love without an agenda.

Each relationship between two persons is absolutely unique. That is why you cannot love two people the same. It simply is not possible. You love each person differently because of who they are and the uniqueness that they draw out of you.

Forgiveness is not about forgetting. It is about letting go of another person’s throat… Forgiveness does not create a relationship. Unless people speak the truth about what they have done and change their mind and behaviour, a relationship of trust is not possible. When you forgive someone you certainly release them from judgment, but without true change, no real relationship can be established… Forgiveness in no way requires that you trust the one you forgive. But should they finally confess and repent, you will discover a miracle in your own heart that allows you to reach out and begin to build between you a bridge of reconciliation… Forgiveness does not excuse anything… You may have to declare your forgiveness a hundred times the first day and the second day, but the third day will be less and each day after, until one day you will realize that you have forgiven completely. And then one day you will pray for his wholeness.
