Life Philosophy

Stop.

Take it all in.

It's mysterious,

And it's scary.

But it's romantic,

And it's beautiful.

I am...

a thinker. A dreamer. An idealist.

Quotes

"As for me, all I know is that I know nothing." – Socrates

"Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once." -William Shakespeare

"He does not possess wealth; it possesses him." -Ben Franklin

"Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear." -Thomas Jefferson

"A man's character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation." -Mark Twain

"For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring." -Carl Sagan

"For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love." -Carl Sagan

"I was planning on my future as a homeless person. I had a really good spot picked out." – Larry David

"When you're not concerned with succeeding, you can work with complete freedom." -Larry David

"The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.” -Christopher Hitchens
