Wise Words

Borrowed, yes. True and tested, nonetheless!

Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity, you will become a statistic.
This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time...I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say let... lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may. 
Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. 
Sic transit gloria mundi
What is called a reason for living is also an excellent reason for dying
The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy. (Or is he?)

This may look like a concoction of quotations stolen from watching Tyler kill and resurrect Jack, from a 14th century German monk's ramblings, from the misdeeds of  a mischievous Greek or from personal travails. For, all truly wise thoughts have been thoughts already thousands of times; but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, till they take root in our personal experience. No doubt, Geothe said that. But, that doesn't mean, I didn't!
