Or. Do. They? O.o
1.))) Every experience in this life is a lesson. The most difficult moments hide the lessons we most resist learning.
2.))) The things that make us angry show us when we need to practice letting go. Typing that sentence is a million times easier than figuring out how to actually do it.
3.))) Expectations are the surest way to bring oneself meaningless suffering.
4.))) Everyone is wrong, all the time. Nobody knows what the fuck is going on. The more we resist our own basic ignorance, the further we are from true knowing.
5.))) Any statement can seem wise and profound, with the right measure of language and conviction.
6.))) A great way to relieve some of the pressures of the burden of existence is to remember you are just a mostly hairless monkey with delusions of grandeur and too much capacity for complex thought.
7.))) With all the complexities of the human mind, even the most intelligent and capable of us are still pretty fucking stupid and clueless most of the time.
8.))) For all the grandly evolved capabilities, ideals, achievements, responsibilities, and sense of self importance displayed by humankind, we are all at our core simply grasping blindly to find our place and our path in the accident of existence. You are not nearly as important as you think you are. Neither am I. Neither is anybody. There’s a sense of calm in that.
9.))) Talking has fuck all to do with getting shit done. Real motherfuckers get shit done.
11.))) Fuck self-imposed limitations, in lists and in life!
