- I don’t want to hurt you.
- It’s a little bit late now.
For children, childhood is timeless. It is always the present. Everything is in the present tense. Of course, they have memories. Of course, time shifts a little for them and Christmas comes round in the end. But they don’t feel it. Today is what they feel, and when they say ‘When I grow up,’ there is always an edge of disbelief—how could they ever be other than what they are?
Our life always expresses the result of our dominant thoughts.
Happy Earth Day, in honor of our blue planet, not green. Also a good day for everyone to remember, that science and technology achievements produce higher environmental protection, not vice versa, so more wealth imply more innovation and makes possible a greater investment in cleaner energies. Therefore, something that a lot of people tend to ignore, economic growth and ecological improvement go together, not confronted.
Also a great day to begin to read The Rational Optimist, by Matt Ridley who inspired my previous words.
Life is not an easy matter… You cannot live through it without falling into frustration and cynicism unless you have before you a great idea which raises you above personal misery, above weakness, above all kinds of perfidy and baseness.
Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.
~ Falsely yours
Isn’t it sad to go to your grave without ever wondering why you were born? Who, with such a thought, would not spring from bed, eager to resume discovering the world and rejoicing to be part of it?
Albert Camus, “The Myth of Sisyphus”
