Many of my best qualities, or at least the most useful ones, would be obsolete in the world in which I would like to live. In other words, as I approach perfection I only do so in relation to this world. In an ideal society, I would be nothing but a primitive man with some potential for growth.
Speaking of following, I really need to read Issac Assimov’s guide to the Bible.
Anticipation of greatness is a near guarantee of mediocrity. It sucks to have to psyche yourself out, but it helps to do so if you want to avoid disappointment. Don’t build up the movie. Don’t overthink the date. Let it happen naturally, and allow yourself to be surprised if things go wonderfully well and take it in stride…
Do your kegels every morning when you take your vitamins.
When I flew home on leave for the first time from the Military I had jumped out of more planes than I had landed in.
Perhaps one reason people get so wise in their old age is because they have done so much in their dreams.
Affirmative Action is o.k. in some cases as long as there is no lowering of the standard.
Contrary to what I used to think, I am only conveniently moral.
I will own a Rolex. Right now I am leaning toward the Submariner with the blue face. Color I am usure of because I don’t know what my sense of style will be in the future. I won’t buy it until I am in my profession and doing well, so I have a while to decide. And when…
I hope I can fix my study habits before my study habits fix me.
Being right is boring, not knowing is through-provoking, but being wrong is absolutely exhilerating.
Korn is very refreshing. Pantera with less power and more groove.
The year 2000 computer glitch is going to be everywhere in the news here in a couple years. Procrastination.
Let your body function as closely as possible to how it was intended to function. Any modification of this natural process is nearly guaranteed to have a side effect.
I need to get the “for dummies” books on the following subjects: Windows 95′, Wine, Beer, Photography, Classical Music, Internet, Ettiquete
I need to get myself a decent 35mm camera and learn the basics of photography. This will be one of my future loves.
The ideal way to pursue greatness is to first eliminate weaknesses rather than nurturing strengths.
Few things would make me happier than being wrong about something major.
I must seek out the works of Bertrand Russell.
If you are not torn on complex moral issues, you are probably wrong.
Life is better through a pair of Revos. — [ UPDATED 2014 ] My first good pair of sunglasses was a pair of Revos. This is back when they were good. They had really good layering, and I remember that whenever I came home to California from the Military I would see my home through Revos and feel…
When is it o.k. to draw humor from a subject or situation that is painful to others? Are there certain things that simply should never be funny due to the subject matter? Or is it o.k. to laugh at anything as long as you are not exposing the people who are sensitive to the subject of the humor?…
The more questions you have floating around in your mind at any given time, the more answers you can glean from day to day experiences. You can see it like this: knowledge and truth are jumping out of every experience, yet unless you have the appropriate question or curiosity associated with that body of answers, you will not…
Why is it that nothing at all is of interest when you have 40 channels of T.V. in perfect clarity, yet when your cable goes out and you only have one channel full of static, your attention is riveted regardless of what’s playing? I know the answer. We want what we can’t have and we lose interest in…
When just lying around with copious free time I always feel compelled to go and workout. This usually leads to my making plans to do so. Inevitably, however, as soon as I am faced with carrying out those plans, I feel and urge to excercise my right to not do anything I don’t want to. So, given a…
I am only 23 but I already see so much that I should have done differently. I am really happy now…so just imagine how happy I’d be if if I would have… Yeah, this is healthy…
Excercise bathes the mind.
Don’t ever try to be spontaneous.
I recently noticed something interesting about myself; when I make a list of things to do I usually keep it around for a short period of time and then make a newer, more revised version of the current agenda. What I noticed is that I always dispose of my older agenda immediately. I don’t seem to like the…
Without strength, good intentions are worth nearly nothing at all.
