if life isn’t some kind of divine miracle its the luckiest natural accident ever or i guess some kind of strange inevitable byproduct of infinity
(and/ or the matrix)
……………despite everything horrific that happens every day i still think the human experience is better than there never being any experience of anything
Expectation is the root of all heartache.
No matter how far you travel, you can never get away from yourself.
“I rushed through life. Now I’m relaxing. And I’ve gotten more out of relaxing than I did out of rushing.”
“What were you rushing toward?”
“Didn’t you get satisfaction from your achievements?”
“No. They only caused me to want more achievements.”
When perfectionism is driving us, shame is always riding shotgun and fear is the backseat driver.
Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.

The difference between science and philosophy is that the scientist learns more and more about less and less until she knows everything about nothing, whereas a philosopher learns less and less about more and more until he knows nothing about everything.
