Life Philosophy

Experience life as passionately, as lovingly, as astutely, as intelligently, and as peacefully as is *humanly possible*.

*Definition: Maximum phsyical, mental, spiritual, and societal potential at any point in a human life. Potential varies for each human being, and is subject to change at any point (e.g. manned flight, Gandhi, spoon bending, indigo children, the civil rights movement/act, the polio vaccine, moonwalks, the Cassini probe, dubstep, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, Igor Stavinsky, Michael Phelps, a two term minority American Presidential administration, etc.).

I am...

A thinker, and a feeler. A sensitive soul. A passionate being. Introspective. Human.

Quotes

I’ll have to find credits for/finish these later:

“It’s not in the land, it’s in the man.” – Great Grandma Bessie Crews

“No man crosses the same river twice, for it’s not the same river, and he’s not the same man.” – Heraclitus

“X never, ever, marks the spot” – Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones

“We are the universe experiencing itself”
