"Picture a growing forest, where each seed is a person you have met, talked to, had fun with, loved, even hated...in you life so far.
We each are born from from this... We come from a long family of multiple paths. Each one leading to something different, something extraordinary, it is called life.
As it is, we start from basically nothing, then we grow, bit by bit, at various rates, sizes... We do a number of different things from each other on the way up. Everybody has there tree, there branches... They represent are choices in life, are actions, are emotions, are thoughts... All comes on the board, when it is a question about life, and here we start, we grow, we go...
So we start small, we are the fruit of our family. Being our life, our aim is personal, unique, and most of the times unclear. And this is normal, because in the beginning, we live in the shade of others whom are taller, bigger, and as time goes by and we find our way to the sky... Sometimes there are still clouds. It is not something to be afraid of, we can be, there is no rule, it's just that life goes on, we go on and moments like yesterday shall change your day, and maybe even the day after. This path, set by faith, god, someone maybe, or just you, is to be followed and enjoyed, but never alone.
Our lives are constantly crossed, mixed up, intertwined... with others's, even though, our choice in life are different, we always come close to others. Keep in mind we probably started 100000 miles away from each other, we still meet these people, and they become close. That is one of many beauties of life. An other can be, that you crossed someone, maybe once, twice... And finally you actually saw them. A criss cross patten, is a good summary, but as I said, some you meet more than one.
There are moments in life, you get so close to people, you almost get stuck to them, as DNA, you connect naturally, and easy. These people are not just anybody, they are your friends, your family, you loves... and probably in the end your personal and unique future family. We all leave a mark, sometimes it's just drawn, sometimes it goes as far as burned on, in the end, it is remembered for ever.
So this life, this climb, this growth... is a unique path for all, whom is shared, briefly to forever, by many people from all walks of life. It shows one important thing, in all cases... we are in constant movement, and we have to constantly make choices for us and others. Just remember to live your life to the fullest, to the best, while enjoying every inch, every second of it, because you only get one go at it. So appreciate the view as it is your turn, then, you can say that your are living THE dream, with THE people at you side, after making THE best choices, to bring you THE happiness and THE life you wanted."

"Leave behind the expectations of what you MUST do in your life.

Abandon the known.

Abandon the comfortable.

Abandon the accepted.

Because in the end, as your lungs are taking in the last few breaths they will ever take,
you will look back on the people you've loved, the places you've been, and all you've
accomplished.

So,

Embrace the unknown,

Escape your comfort zone,

Love what is different.

It just might give you some good memories."

"As long as men believe in the ego as their ultimate reality, as long as men accept such fantasies as nations, money, and military power as "real", no program of social action can do more than shift the locus for injustice. While eros prevails, justice can be little more than a balancing of the power of various interest groups. In that situation minorities are bond to lose."

"“Junk the ancient rules of thought by which our predecessors fought
Their clashing minds did throw a spark that scorched the world and wreaked the dark
Let no science fix our path if only numbers make its math
Our brains will run will surely see on some sweeter philosophy
Until beneath a quite sky atop the rubble we will stand and finally demystify the message in fate's reprimand
Even an atomic blast can't rub the future from the past
If with incinerated grace we still become the human race.”"

"[A] nation, though generally regarded as an important aspect of reality, has no substance apart from what the imagination of men gives it. The border between the United States and Canada is "there" only in so far as men have commonly agreed to imagine that it is there.[...] To be sure, such fantasies about nations have all sorts of important and very real consequences, but they are still fantasies. Nations will only exist as long as men imagine that they do.[...] The same may be said of that other powerful ingredient in modern, secular society: money.[...] The value of a dollar is only what people pretend it is. Alexander Hamilton's picture intrinsically has no more value than George Washington's."

"Death is such a bitch. The ultimate bitch. The queen of all bitches. She allows herself to be always present, yet so distant all at once. Just when you've almost forgotten about her existence, she pops up again and makes you think, "How did I ever forget?". She makes you question the choices you've made, but only once it is too late. But that is why she is the ultimate bitch. She owns the title. If she didn't, we would not respect her the way we do. Just when it seems like she's lost her touch, BAM. It is necessary for her to be THE bitch or we would not respect death, and we would not be gracious for life. I can't help but respect her more than life honestly. Death has the most power. The power to allow life where she sees fit until she decides to claim it as her own. As I grow older, there is one idea that only grows stronger. Respect is everything, you bitch."
