“Everybody is fundamentally the ultimate reality. Not God in a politically kingly sense, but God in the sense of being the self, the deep-down basic whatever there is. And you’re all that, only you’re pretending you’re not.”—Alan Watts (via rapuntsel)
“I myself feel that our country, for whose Constitution I fought in a just war, might as well have been invaded by Martians and body snatchers. Sometimes I wish it had been. What has happened, though, is that it has been taken over by means of the sleaziest, low-comedy, Keystone Cops-style coup d’etat imaginable. And those now in charge of the federal government are upper-crust C-students who know no history or geography, plus not-so-closeted white supremacists, aka ‘Christians,’ and plus, most frighteningly, psychopathic personalities, or ‘PPs.’”— Kurt Vonnegut (via fuckitbukowskiwasright)
Aristotle spoke of dividing man into three aspects: the mind, the body, and the spirit: "Speech is the expression of ideas or thoughts or desires. Handwriting is the visible form of speech. Just as speech can have inflections of emotions, somewhere in handwriting is an expression of the emotions underlying the writer’s thoughts, ideas, or desires."
Meaning: The size of the writing reveals whether a person is feeling socially extroverted or introverted. It also reveals your capacity for concentration.
Note: Sometimes your size changes, look at the definitions that describe your mood.
1. Overly Large Handwriting:
This person demands to be seen & heard
This writer overdoes (exaggerates) the size in compensation for an inner feeling of smallness and/or unimportance
Obsession with attention & will go to great lengths to obtain it
Displays obsessive tendencies by writing huge letters (to call attention on himself)
2. Large Handwriting (in general):
Reaches out to other people
Unwilling to concentrate on small details
Wants to be noticed by others
This writer goes to many places
Does not like limited territory
Reasons Why: [Reason 1]: The desire to be big & important - “Look at me. I’m big & important. I’m impressive, & I want you to know it.” [Reason 2]: Extravagance - some large writers are flamboyant people who lean toward the lavish & luxurious lifestyle. [Reason 3]: Big planners - these people tend to see the “big picture,” they perceive matters on the grand scale who might take overwhelming projects. [Reason 4]: Showing off, these are usually fancy dressers who gesture broadly, take big steps, talk loudly, and seem to burst forth upon the scene.
3. Medium Handwriting:
If the writing is neither “big” nor “small,” then this person is feeling normally social and who has average ability to concentrate
There’s not that much definitions to medium, but it’s considered an ‘ideal’ size when you usually write
4. Small Handwriting:
Small means introversion, this person is not reaching out to people expansively, instead he is holding himself tightly to a limited space -which also shows in your handwriting
Four Reasons: [Reason 1]: Introversion - this is the tendency to direct one’s interest upon oneself rather than on external objects, people, and events. Feeling of wanting to be alone. This is shutting down stimuli, resulting in restricted movements by the hands. [Reason 2]: Concentration - in the mood to concentrate on small details, by shutting out stimuli, as your mind narrows its focus - the hand automatically limits itself. [Reason 3]: Small self-image - these people feel small in importance, shrunken self-esteem with letters that are small and weakly made. [Reason 4]: Economy - These people do not wish to waste paper, usually compulsively economical in all aspects of their life
5. Microscopic Handwriting:
Extreme writing results an extreme in personality, few people write this way, they are shrinking within themselves and/or concentrating to an exaggerated degree. There is nothing in this world at the moment except for himself and his thoughts, exceptionally introverted, tuning out the entire world.
Two Distinctions of Micro Writing: [Distinction 1]: Teeny & ‘read-able’ handwriting - This is a deep thinker, the truly deep thinker becomes intensely introverted in order to descend deep within himself and satisfy a quest for personal knowledge, Gandhi also wrote this way - it’s from hours of meditation, of being alone [Distinction 2]: Teeny & unread-able handwriting, and is distorted, it’s only when you cannot read their handwriting AT ALL - This is a disturbed person. This person is cut off from normal environmental relationships.

“Ah! realize your youth while you have it. Don’t squander the gold of your days, listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant, the common, and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals, of our age. Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing… A new Hedonism—that is what our century wants. You might be its visible symbol. With your personality there is nothing you could not do. The world belongs to you for a season… The moment I met you I saw that you were quite unconscious of what you really are, of what you really might be. There was so much in you that charmed me that I felt I must tell you something about yourself. I thought how tragic it would be if you were wasted. For there is such a little time that your youth will last—such a little time. The common hill-flowers wither, but they blossom again. The laburnum will be as yellow next June as it is now. In a month there will be purple stars on the clematis, and year after year the green night of its leaves will hold its purple stars. But we never get back our youth. The pulse of joy that beats in us at twenty becomes sluggish. Our limbs fail, our senses rot. We degenerate into hideous puppets, haunted by the memory of the passions of which we were too much afraid, and the exquisite temptations that we had not the courage to yield to. Youth! Youth! There is absolutely nothing in the world but youth!”—Oscar Wilde; Dorian Gray
