Quotable #1

“Everyone’s life is full of scrapbooks. Everyone’s life is a painting with all the colors of the rainbow in it. We all have a story to tell with a beginning, a middle and eventually, an end. But the real story, the true through-line that is our life, is not comprised of factual data detailing how we spent our time on this planet Earth. The real experience is in why we lived our lives as we did. Not whom we married, but why; not where we went on vacation, but why; not how we achieved fame, but why; not whom we loved, killed, saved, cheated, but why.”

– Dirk Benedict, Confessions of a Kamikaze Cowboy

Not necessity, not desire – no, the love of power is the demon of men. Let them have everything – health, food, a place to live, entertainment – they are and remain unhappy and low-spirited: for the demon waits and waits and will be satisfied.
– Friedrich Nietzsche
