If you constantly find yourself trying to prove your worth to someone, you’ve already forgotten your value.


Don’t be eye candy, be soul food.

What’s the meaning of “don’t be eye candy, be soul food.”?
It means that your appeal shouldn’t be physical but should come from your internal qualities, i.e. don’t just be beautiful on the outside, be beautiful on the inside as well.

In framing an ideal we may assume what
we wish, but should avoid impossibilities.

Niggas thought I was gon’ rest in peace
But I’mma rise in peace, know’what’I’m’sayin’?
This goes out to all them fake ass record companies
And them fake ass record labels
Who thought they was just gon’ toss some fuckin’ dirt on our grave
And walk out the door with our masks and ■■■■, know’what’Im’sayin’?
‘Naw man, we gon’ hunt y’all niggas down man
We gon’ hunt y’all niggas for the rest of y’all life man
The last niggas that did ■■■■ to us, the studio burned down
The last label that did some ■■■■ to us, they had to file bankrupcy
Feel me?, we not playin’ no fuckin’ game no mo’ man, Maccabees
Niggas want us Buried Alive, y’all want us Buried Alive
We gon’ write rhymes underground, in the underworld
On a fuckin’ tombstones, inside the caskets
That’s Mental Caskets though, cause y’all niggas is mentally dead
It’s the return of the livin’ dead man

There is no emotion; there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos; there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.

—The Jedi Code, Star Wars Galaxies

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

—The Sith Code, Star Wars Galaxies

Immortal Technique, remember me when I’m gone
I encrypted my lyrics to stay alive in a song
so you’ll always keep a piece of my spirit inside
when you struggle to complete what I started before I died
but some of you won’t survive the changes the Earth makes
swallowed by tsunamis, hurricanes, and earthquakes
and that’s just the first stage if you cannot reverse ways
and realize that we are one regardless of our birthplace

A simple man see a statue of a god and falls down and worships it. A wiser man sees the statue and thinks, “That is just carved wood covered with a little gold.” A wiser man yet sees the statue and knows that it is just a simple visual aid to helping one conceive of and understand a complex universal truth.
-The Upanishads [paraphrased from memory, just because that’s the gist, nobody cares if it’s the exact wording of some English translation or not]
