"If it be a thing external that causes you grief, know that it is not the property that causes it but your own conceit and perception of the thing, which is wholly in your power to change." - Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
I read Marcus Aurelius' book Meditations in a weird fit of first year student pretentiousness but it has so many amazing things in it about being a rational thinker and learning to set aside worries and fears over stuff you can't change and concentrate on those you can.
This quote, among many others from Meditations, just convinced me to be a bit less neurotic about worrying over things too much. Tomorrow is another day and all of that stoic and pragmatic crap...
Also, this one.. "Waste no time arguing what a good person should be. Be one."
"You think your life is a movie, or book, or comic, or something. And you think you're the main character that everyone can read. You're not! You live in your own fucking head and I can never tell what you are thinking." - a crappy person that I'm kinda paraphrasing
Something that came up in one of those teen relationship arguments we all have when we don't know any better, but this message stuck with me since. I remember at the time being really wounded by it cos it implied I was self absorbed and pricked my bubble of how I saw myself at the time. Painfully, it was quite true. But it was a bit of a wake up call that reminded me it wasn't all about me and I shouldn't assume anyone else could understand what I was thinking unless I actually expressed it. I still haven't learnt the whole lesson but I'm a bit more self aware now. Still hate the person who said that though...
Foxing (chosen by @Kei_ above) are great but..
Does "God" even care? An interesting question. Perhaps he now only exists as some pseudo-theological construct, occasionally tinkering with minor site functionality fixes and encouraging zealotry from afar?
Yay! Congrats to you all.
Hilarious outcome for the mod candidates considering the shit Warlock gave staff when he was going through his paranoid witch hunts for staff spies.
Still, all seems like good news and I second looking forward to the chess.
..at the edge of the precipice I stared hard in to the blackness..and beheld the terrible visage of that dark void gazing back..in that moment a thought occurred to me..why give a shit?
@Kirn only in your heart bby.
@Kirn should be the next mod. He's no fun anymore without his fangs.
@ccc is nostalgic...
