About Me

ABOUT ME

PHILOSOPHY

You know all that money we spend on weapons and defense every year? Trillions of dollars.
Instead, if we spent that money feeding and clothing the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over,
not one human being excluded ... not one ... we could as one race explore inner and outer space together in peace, forever. -Bill Hicks

He who wants the world to remain as it is doesn't want it to remain at all. - Erich Fried

Where liberty dwells, there is my country. -Benjamin Franklin

The reason we have poverty is that we have no imagination. There are a great many people accumulating what they think is vast wealth, but it's only money... they don't know how to enjoy it, because they have no imagination. -Alan Watts

It is also in our language if I say, " I love you", you don't know when i've said "I", what "I" is doing. I could say "I hate you". So we don't know until later. In other words the word love or the word hate changes the function of the word "I". ..And then I was going to say, "I love flowers", oh..but i love you!
You see, the word later changes the meaning of the word that comes before. Present is always changing the past. So when you get the idea in your mind that the point i'm getting at is very difficult to acquire. That idea is one that your putting there to keep yourself from seeing the other point of view. Above all you must not take that seriously. It is just a method of postponing it. -Alan Watts

After all, it is the divinity within that makes the divinity without; and I have been more fascinated by a woman of talent and intelligence, though deficient in personal charms, than I have been by the most regular beauty. -Washington Irving

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it. -Tolle

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice. -Cherokee Expression

So many people spend their HEALTH gaining wealth, and then have to spend their WEALTH to regain their health. -A.J Materi

Then there is the most dangerous risk of all is€“ the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later. -Randy Komisar
