The Story of Our Lives

"It was the same everywhere! Everywhere they looked for "freedom" and "luck" in the past, out of sheer dread of their present responsibilities and future course. They drank and caroused for a few years and then they slunk away to become serious-minded gentlemen in the service of our state."
Demain by Herman Hesse

What are you going to do with yourself?
I think I'll get a predictable, stable, but well paying job, and settle into a complacent bourgeoisie lifestyle after a short flare of releasing youthful energy.

Who really matters?

"Every man is more than just himself; he also represents the unique, very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world's phenomena intersect, only once in this way and never again. That is why every man's story is important, eternal, sacred; that is why every man, as long as he lives and fulfills the will of nature, is wondrous, and worthy of every consideration. In each individual the spirit has become flesh, in each man the creation suffers, within each one a redeemer is nailed to the cross."
-Damien, Herman Hesse
