"It was on this day, during this terrible and wonderful run, that a thought occurred to me, a thought which has never left me: I’ve always considered THE question to be,
"Why am I alive? Why am I here? What’s the point of me?" And to that I say,
"WHO CARES! FORGET THE WHY. You are in a raging forest full of beauty and agony and magical grapey beverages and lightning storms and demon bees. THIS IS BETTER THAN THE WHY."

Treat every moment as your last. It is not preparation for something else.

You can trust math…. Quantities and their relation. Rates of change. The vital statistics of God or equivalent. When all else fails. When the boulder’s slid all the way back to the bottom…. When you do not know your way about. You can fall back and regroup around math. Whose truth is deductive truth. Independent of sense or emotionality. The syllogism. The identity. Modus Tollens. Transitivity. Heaven’s theme song. The nightlight on life’s dark wall, late at night. Heaven’s recipe book…. What it is is: listen: it’s true.

do you ever have second-hand obsessions

like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend

You teach people how to treat you by what you allow, what you stop, and what you reinforce.
