From the late, great Bill Hicks

'The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: Is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey – don't worry, don't be afraid ever, because this is just a ride." And we … kill those people. "Shut him up. We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real." It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because – it's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.'

- Bill Hicks

I just posted this one somewhere else today but thought it belongs here too...

It's from Henry David Thoreau's inspiring Walden; the book that probably had the single-most impact on me as I was entering adulthood.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartanlike as to put to rout all that was not life..."

OMG, that was one of my favorite readings in high school. I rememer showing that to my instructor --trying to explain that I undertand his emotional dynamic................I think my teacher that I was weird

Thoreau has an amazing subtle intimate flare with nature that I think has never been matched.....

Great read.

I first heard this quote in 'Dead Poet Society' - one of my all times favorite movies - then got the book. Wowsers!

There was another quote in there that really struck a chord with me. The gist of it was that one can feel more lonely amongst thousands of people than on one's own. That's when I started to make peace with being a loner.

Here's a few favorites by Krishnamurti:

"God is in what is"

"Resistance to what is breeds insensitivity."

"Life is its own reason"

"People think they are free because they can travel around and think whatever they want."

"True freedom is freedom from the known."
