Edward Jay Epstein - Journalism

"The problem of journalism is simple. Journalists are rarely in a position to establish the truth of an issue themselves, since they didn't witness it personally. They are entirely dependent on self-interested sources to supply their facts. Every part of the news-making process is defined by this relationship; everything is coloured by this reality." ~Edward Jay Epstein

Jim Jarmusch - originality

"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to." ~Jim Jarmusch

This stretches on and on, this sea of white and grey;
Its beauty simply is not real, like mem’ry dimmed away."

"But (sic) life experiences and common sense (and sensibility) are ultimately the better forms of education." ~Carlos Silverio Bueno

"But the words also lend themselves to all other peoples of the world, who even now look up to their own governments to realize in their behalf the fundamental liberties that are due to all men, under the proposition that all are created equal as an inalienable right of all humanity that exist on God's earth." ~Caloy Bueno on Abraham Lincoln Gettysburg Address, 4 August 2017

"Filipinos are traditionally a hospitable people. We are generous even to strangers. That presupposes that we are a caring people -- but there is something about genuine caring that is somehow incompatible with the Filipinos' psyche -- while we can indeed be generous (when we want or need to, such as on special occasions), Filipinos generally have a xenophobic streak inherent in them (the fear of the stranger) -- this undercuts the required genuine caring attitude..." ~Caloy Bueno on Culture of Caring, 6 October 2017

What we think and what we say tells how honest we are. What we say and what we do shows our integrity.

What we know and believe in explicitly or implicitly informs our existence. And how we live directs us to our destiny.

When we die, our legacy is with those who really know who we were -- and whose lives were touched by us, just as they also touched our own..." ~Caloy Bueno, February 1, 2018
‪"Whether you believe in predestination ('manifest destiny') or a deterministic future (through your own choices/decisions and its consequences), nobody can really say how or even if we can reach such ends for our lives.

"A narcostate is a country where politicians amass wealth by engaging in the fantastically lucrative drug trade in order to buy themselves into power during elections thereby enabling themselves to amass still more wealth by using the power they have bought.
