"Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you."
"The border between the Real and the Unreal is not fixed, but just marks the last place where rival gangs of shamans fought each other to a standstill."
Robert Anton Wilson
"Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained."
"Stop worrying about your identity and concern yourself with the people you care about, ideas that matter to you, beliefs you can stand by, tickets you can run on. Intelligent humans make those choices with their brain and hearts and they make them alone. The world does not deliver meaning to you. You have to make it meaningful…and decide what you want and need and must do. It’s a tough, unimaginably lonely and complicated way to be in the world. But that’s the deal: you have to live; you can’t live by slogans, dead ideas, clichés, or national flags. Finding an identity is easy. It’s the easy way out."
"You do not immortalize the lost by writing about them. Language buries, but does not resurrect."
