David Jones

It's a god-awful small affair to the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling "no" and her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen, now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view and she's hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a saddening bore, for she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools as they ask her to focus on-

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go, it's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know, he's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It's on America's tortured brow that Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame 'cause Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes from Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds to my mother, my dog, and clowns 
But the film is a saddening bore 'cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again as I ask you to focus on-

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go, it's the freakiest show
Take a look at the lawman beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know, he's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

The secret of happiness

By Jesse Cline.
Can't wait to go hiking across the Vallum Aelium until we reach Cumbria, and feel the rain upon our (smiling) faces.

Compatible methysergide

Daria - I know you may find this hard to believe, but looks aren't everything.
Quinn - Really?
Daria - See, there's this thing called "personality"? There's also liking the same things, having a similar sense of humor, being able to have five-minute conversations without boring the living hell out of each other...
Quinn - Like you and Tom.
Daria - Did I mention Tom?
Quinn - Well, who else would you be talking about?

Trent's lyrics

- "My heart is like an open wound that reads the tea leaves of its doom."
What?
"Soothe me with redemption's love like a heat-proof kitchen glove."
God, I hope this is a first draft...

- Daria, S03E10 "Speedtrapped"

Ricky Wilson strikes again

Well I'm not waiting for no one, I'm waiting for you
It takes the two of us to gather up, we'll make it through
So let's go, into tomorrow together fighting, we're bows and arrows

You and me on the front line
You and me, every time
It's always you and me, we're bows and arrows

You and me when the sun goes down
It's always you and me when the whip comes round
It's always you and me, we're bows and arrows
You!

Duḥkha: el sufrimiento en el budismo

"Duḥkha" es un término en sánscrito empleado en la religión budista y traducido comúnmente como sufrimiento", "ansiedad", "estrés" o "falta de satisfacción en general". Tradicionalmente se asocia a la miseria, el cambio o la existencia en general (Upatissa, 1961).

Por tanto, forma parte de las Cuatro Nobles Verdades del budismo enunciadas por Siddharta Gautama: "todos los estados temporales son insatisfactorias", o "toda existencia es sufrimiento". La doctrina budista mantiene que esta insatisfacción recidivante debe ser aceptada.

Para el sistema de medicina occidental o biomédico, el duḥkha puede equipararse o estar asociado a un trastorno de ansiedad generalizada que puede producirse al negarse a desprenderse de cosas que se encuentran en cambio constante (trastorno de pánico), o con el sufrimiento físico y mental que acompañan al envejecimiento, la enfermedad o la muerte. También puede relacionarse con el sentimiento de insatisfacción derivado de conseguir algo que no se desea, siendo incapaz de aferrarse a lo obtenido por no conseguir lo que se quiere. La depresión suele ser comórbida de este tipo de trastornos.

En Siddharta, la novela de Hermann Hesse, el personaje de Gautama (o Gotama) Buda mantenía que existe un sufrimiento que persiste en la vida, una insatisfacción básica y sutil que permanece todo el tiempo porque todas las formas de vida se encuentran en un cambio de forma temporal y sin un propósito interior.

Depressed alternative youth

- Daria, do you have to look at everything in such a negative light?
- Could you possibly be referring to the harsh light of reality?
