The Blog of Alceste

I am Alceste and I write about my life and the awful people in it. Celimene is/was my love, even if she has flaws.

So True

"Honesty is all you need."
Cass Elliot

This man, Cass Elliot is brilliant. His words are very true and are very straight forward. Although others have different opinions on the fact, if you are honest, then you will savor a morally righteous life. 

If only…

"I like not only to be loved, but also to be told I am loved."
George Eliot

Even though I know Celimene loves me, I wish that she would tell me. Because she doesn’t verbalize her love, I sometimes doubt her. Could this be unrequited love? 


     As this yellow rose stands alone distinctly against the others, I do the same. While others think certain things are right, I think otherwise. But I still stand where I may, and fight my battles. When I recall a thought, I am honest to declare, though others do dissent. I stand in a world where the sufficient others think astray, where people envision praise prevailing over honesty. I am that one inseperable rose.

"Love Hurts"

    This song regards how love is cruel. It describes how I felt when I was with, and in the time after I was finished, with Celimene. It was painful and hard to witness the many number of suiters she had, as well as her lies, but, I learned briefly to forgive her. Still, though, there is no good reason to tolerate one’s bad behavior!

Wouldn’t it be great to live here? Here, where mankind is far away. Here, where I can reside subsequently to break[ing] with the whole human race. Here is where it’s as scarce as a desert, where the land [is] unfouled by humankind. Oh, wouldn’t it be great to live here?

Celimene

    I proposed my love, but she was disgusted. She claimed that she is terrified/ Of solitute,/ [and fears that she] lacks the force/ And depth of soul to take so stern a course. But, she declared that if [her] hand in marriage will content [me], / Why there’s a plan that [she] might well consent to. At that moment I realized that she had no adoration, so I declared my final affirmation.

No, I detest you now. I could excuse

Everything else, but since you thus refuse

To love me wholly, as a wife should do,

And see the world in me, as I in you,

Go! I reject your hand and disenthrall

My heart from your enchantments, once for all.

Finally, my love for her ceased.

Defeated

I had her, just about, and she was surrounded and had no way out. I found the letter, I had proof, now I wanted her aloof explanation. She tried to make an excuse and lie when she said, "this was written to a woman friend." I knew I would get the truth from her this time. But then, as if she’d done no crime, she  admitted to it, and remarked,

"No, no, it’s for Oronte; you’re perfectly right.

I welcome his attentions with delight,

I prize his character and his intellect,

And everything is just as you suspect…”

At first, I was the judge and the questioner, but then so quickly she turned the situation, and I asked her,

Could anything be more inhuman?

Was ever a heart so mangled by a woman?

And then I said to her dear face…

She tries my tortued patience to the limit;

She won’t deny her guilt; she glories in it!

And yet my heart’s too faint and cowardly,

To break these chains of passions and be free,

At that moment I found myself begging…

…Pretend, pretend that you are just and true,

And I shall make myself believe in you.

Oh, Celimene, why do I love you so? Why do you have to be so wonderfully aglow? Your flaws are great, but not heavy enough to negate my love for you.

Well, Clitandre...

CalvinKlitandre: Alceste, you little @$%#&!

calvinklitandre:

I don’t believe it! I showed Oronte my poem, and guess what he told me! He said that he himself showed a sonnet of his own composition to Alceste, who then replied:

This artificial style, that’s all the…

 Well Clitandre,

What you say might be true for some, for those who aren’t asking to attain honest criticism. But for those who need the opinion of another for their own benefit, will achieve no assistance with your idea of encouragement. Their work will never achieve what they desire if they do not note the criticism others give. What is the logic behind addressing a proposal that is aspired to be answered in deceit?

"People and their Problems"

Listen to this song, it’s very well written and it’s very true. For all of you who support the achievements of humanity, you need to realize the issues with mankind. The words in this song are very similar to what I feel. Yes, “people and their problems are giving me a pain.” It’s very true. All those “lazy, loafing, good for nothing, drunken slob[s]” make me wish I could get away from humanity and escape from the dumb people on this earth. Listen to it, it’s truly great, (better than that sonnet that Oronte wrote).

Men Are Always Wrong

Humanity has many complications,

They need to understand that in many declarations,

Men…are always wrong, and that’s the reason

That righteous anger’s never out of season;

All that I hear in…conversation

Is flattering praise or reckless condemnation,

So as for my conclusion,

Many people should be forced into extrusion.
