Life Philosophy

Humans are social creatures. You’ll only be happy as a loner if you’re a wolf.

I am...

a law student from Oxford, England. I’m still trying to find out how to fit productivity, spirituality, self-development, etc. into a busy life. I have some pretty strange views on varied things, including sexuality (everyone’s bi), so if you’re overly logical, some of my arguments may not make sense.

Quotes

“Life is islands of ecstasy in an ocean of ennui… At best we wander from one much-worn sandbar to the next… having lived in moderate happiness with moderate success with an average wife and family for seven years, I found suddenly, around my thirty-second birthday, that I wanted to kill myself. And to kill several other people too…
I hated myself and the world… the limitations of myself and of life. In literature this refusal is called romanticism; in psychology, neurosis.” Luke Rhinehart

“Real music, proper music, was country and western music. On Saint Andrews, even the rastas knew it. Johnny Cash? He was a God. Willie Nelson? A demigod.” Neil Gaiman

“Worship is not necessarily theological. The word is a contraction of ‘worth-ship,’ which means appreciation. Notwithstanding understandable prejudice, itself a feeling in any humanist, in fact they too engage in worship. They do so when, like myself, they sit in their garden and do not argue with the flowers, but simply absorb their delight, and thus find benediction. They do so when for a while they allow music to nourish their hearts, when they have any kind of aesthetic experience, when in fellowship they possess a sense of profound kinship of hearts in communion, and when they find emotional satisfaction in devoted service to an ideal or a great cause, or when they see an infant gazing into its mother’s eyes. This appreciation others call worship. It is an emotional response to something or someone, beyond yet related to oneself.” – Lord Sorenson
