“Meaninglessness does not come from being weary of pain; meaninglessness comes from being weary of pleasure”
There is a hunger, deep inside,
Rooted in the conviction that what we have is insufficient,
It grows, fed by fake ideas of what could be,
Climbing across our minds, creeping into our thoughts
To take possession of our goals
Of our dreams
Of our life
“The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.”
-George Orwell (In Front of Your Nose)
What is your wish?
What is your goal?
What is your dream?
Why aren’t you running?
Chasing your dream like you are crazy, trying to make it become real?
“That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up.”
“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler”
-Henry David Thoreau
“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
“It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.”
―Gabriel Garcia Marques
“Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.”
