Life Philosophy

“Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It’s us. Only us.” – Rorschach (Watchmen)

I am...

a drummer, dreamer, and poet


“I think there must be something wrong with me, Linus. Christmas is coming, but Im not happy. I dont feel the way Im supposed to feel. I just dont understand Christmas, I guess. I like getting presents and sending Christmas cards, and decorating trees and all that, but Im still not happy. I always end up feeling depressed.” -Charlie Brown

“Love is where YOU are not.” – Swami Dhyan Giten

““I see in the fight club the strongest and smartest men who’ve ever lived. I see all this potential and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars, advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of the history man, no purpose or place, we have no Great war, no Great depression, our great war is a spiritual war, our great depression is our lives, we’ve been all raised by television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won’t and we’re slowly learning that fact. and we’re very very pissed off.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club”

‎”There are no truths. Only interpretations.” – Nietzche”

‎”Many people want desperately to believe [in God], but they just can’t. They may feel tortured that their faith has evaporated, but they can’t will it back into existence. If an autopsy could be done on their spiritual life, the cause of death wouldn’t be murder or suicide. It would be natural causes – the organic death of a belief system that collapsed under the weight of experience and reason.” – William Lobdell

‎”Sometimes it feels like someone took a knife baby, edgy and dull, and carved a 6 inch valley through the middle of my skull.” – Springsteen

‎”The shudder of awe is humanity’s highest faculty” – Faust”

“The real problem of humanity is the following: We have Paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions, and god-like technology.” – E. O. Wilson

‎”Insanity is relative. It depends on who has who locked in what cage.” – Ray Bradbury
