Forget Convention

If you want a quality, act as if you already had it.

William James (via philosophy-quotes)

Happy birthday Jesus.

Happy birthday Jesus.

Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

the Buddha (via philosophy-quotes)

In a quiet revolution in thought and argument that hardly anybody could have foreseen only two decades ago, God is making a comeback. Most intriguingly, this is happening not among theologians or ordinary believers, but in the crisp intellectual circles of academic philosophers, where the consensus had long banished the Almighty from fruitful discourse.

Time Magazine (April 7, 1980)

If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.

Noam Chomsky (via philosophy-quotes)

I had a dream about a place last night that was so beautiful.  It was a landscape of black marble with waterfalls and currents of water everywhere.  People were laughing and enjoying the water and there was no stress in sight.  Everything was peaceful and exciting.  I wish I could go back and take photographs of it, but I can’t.  So instead, I’m going to have to find a way to live my dream.
