Sayings or interesting quotes that I encountered...
Public Domain / in my own words:
"Make not your dreams true but dream your truth, because dreams and hopes constitute our truth"
"The essence of things is not in their past, in their being or in their relations, but in the view each of us has on them: That is exactly why people think that they are talking about something, and that they know what really is the case"
"Make Love AND War, because life is life balancing with life"
"Finding the meaning of life most likely is not the meaning of life"
"It may be true that it's better to be a Socrates dissatisfied, than a pig satisfied, but what hope is here for those millions and millions of dissatisfied pigs ?"
"Look life into the eyes or admit that you're dead... but never forget that to live is to love, create, shape, and be... it is blossoming during a finite summertime that will end in fall - and this makes life, meaning and finiteness synonymous"
"scholars knit socks for the spirit"
"...man who neglects what is actually done for what should be done learns the way to self-destruction rather than self- preservation"
"Christians and moralists and cultured aesthetes, and bright young scientists and Smilesian business men - all poor little human frogs trying to blow themselves up into bulls of pure spirituality, pure idealism, pure efficiency, pure conscious intelligence, and just going pop, ceasing to be anything but the fragments of a little frog..."
- Aldous Huxley
"No one is as smart as all of us"
- Seth Godin
"Now, it’ s a commonplace that researchers always conclude that more research needs to be done in their field. But in this instance it is really true. There is more scholarly work on the life-habits of the dung fly than on existential risks."
- Nick Bostrom
