“If you’re free you’ll never see the wallsChris Cornell, ‘Exploder’, Audioslave, 2002
If your head is clear you’ll never free fall
If you’re right you’ll never fear the wrong
If your head is high you’ll never fear at all”
“You might say, well, what’s the right way of being in the world? – if there is such a thing – and it’s not acting in accordance to a set of rules. It’s attempting continuously to transcend the flawed thing that you currently are. And what’s interesting about that is that the meaning of life is found in that pursuit.”Jordan Peterson, The Joe Rogan Podcast, Episode #1139
“I think the most important thing for a father these days is to just show that’s possible to do what you love and be really good at it. And then come home with tenderness and affection for them – missing them – and give them everything you’ve got when you get home and then start it all again the next day.
Figure out what it is that makes you happy, work hard, forget about the rest, come home, and be a good man, be a fucking man, and go to sleep and wake up early and do it again.”J.T. Van Zandt

“In this world there are those who listen to the flow of currents within themselves, and there are those who quiet those currents so that they can more easily hear the directions being shouted at them from the loudspeakers at each corner of the prison-yard fence.This has always been an important divider of people – where they get their instructions from. Who they listen to. What they accept as reality and what they reject.”Mark Driver, Just Another Empire
“We must let go of the life we have planned so as to accept the one that awaits us.”Joseph Campbell
