blessed are the forgetful:

for they get the better even of their blunders. -Friedrich Nietzsche how happy is the blameless vestal's lot! the world forgetting, by the world forgot. eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd. -Alexander Pope constantly talking isn't necessarily communicating... finally saw the movie again, now i want it on dvd (add it to my giant collection). it's an interesting concept when you think about it. permanently take out memories from your mind, to completely erase never feel pain from them again. but erasing the pain, you also erase the good things (and the lessons learned). i don't think it'd ever go through with that type of process (or procedure), but just think if it were possible. i mean, i know i've forgotten bits and pieces here and there...selective amnesia if you will. it's just interesting to think about. but if you watched the movie, it also shows you don't know what you have until it's gone (or almost) at the same time. makes you stop and think, always re-thinking everything that you did...or want to do. second guessing yourself. sucks though. i always end up in that cycle, a never ending depressing cycle--that i hope one day to break...
