revolutionary to do so?
There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature.William Upski Wimsatt (via floravarga)
Learn how to control your emotions. Choose them, don’t let them choose you.KushandWizdom (via canihaveaseizure)
In modern society most of us don’t want to be in touch with ourselves; we want to be in touch with other things like religion, sports, politics, a book - we want to forget ourselves. Anytime we have leisure, we want to invite something else to enter us, opening ourselves to the television and telling the television to come and colonize us.Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)
First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.Mahatma Gandhi (via purplebuddhaproject)
