Learning Kicks Ass

"I exist. It's sweet, so sweet, so slow. And light: you'd think it floated all by itself. It stirs. It brushes by me, melts and vanishes. Gently, gently. There is bubbling water in my throat, it caresses me- and now it comes up again into my mouth. For ever I shall have a little pool of whitish water in my mouth - lying low - grazing my tongue. And this pool is still me. And the tongue. And the throat is me....
My thought is me: that's why I can't stop. I exist because I think… and I can't stop myself from thinking. At this very moment - it's frightful - if I exist, it is because I am horrified at existing. I am the one who pulls myself from the nothingness to which I aspire." - Sartre

"Death is not a event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinte temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present....The solution of the riddle of life in space and time lies outside space and time....It is not how things are in the world that is mystical, but that it exists." - Wittgenstien
