People want to give up the responsibility of being able to understand. And because they can’t understand, then they have faith. And they put their faith into people who say they can understand. And I think that’s a situation that’s ripe for a predatory relationship.Paul Stamets
The purpose of accepting authority is to learn to outgrow it.Elaine Pagels
We long to be here for a purpose. Yet despite much self-deception, none is evident. The significance of our lives and our fragile planet is then determined only by our own wisdom and courage. We are the custodians of life’s meaning. If we crave some cosmic purpose, then let us find ourselves a worthy goal.Carl Sagan
Your drug is a heart breaker. My love is a life taker.Weezer
Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.Søren Kierkegaard
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.John F. Kennedy
I have good news: there is no cure. You just wake up another day and fight it. Day after day until that’s who you become: a fighter.What the Hell Did I Just Read
Biology enables, culture forbids.Yuval Noah Harari, Sapiens
Civilization begins with distillation.
Do you know what love is? It’s a hot bath. What happens to things when you leave them in a bath for too long? Huh? They get soft; fall apart. […] It’s a war, baby: this life. The things we endure. You said you saw the future and it’s an apocalypse. Who survives that? The lovers? Or the fighters? They sell us this lie that love is gonna save us. […] Love isn’t gonna save us… it’s what we have to save. Pain makes us strong enough to do it. All our scars, our anger, our despair: it’s armor. Baby, god loves the sinners best ’cause our fire burns bright bright bright. Burn with me.
