And yet a marathon has nothing to do with 2 halfs.


Everything is connected

The key to learning is to remember that some things will make sense later. No need to stumble over understanding every detail now. And the joy of education is the part when all the pieces of knowledge begin to work together towards explaining the phenomenon of the world around us. All things are connected because we are made up of the same molecules reorganized.

The problem of relating to doctors when they give out a diagnosis is that until you get to know them, they have a vested interest in sounding competent, possibly greater than the interest in giving a correct treatment.

my therapist calls suicide a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
on one hand he's kinda right. things aren't bad ALL the time therefore what you are dealing with is usually a temporary problem. but my problems will be with me till the end. the sooner the end the sooner the problems are gone.


There's this moment while I'm running at full momentum, where I can imagine things from my childhood with intense detail.

when your natural state is to change, sitting still can cause exceeding instability.


why good girls go for bad boys

when finding a mate... we all have to choose from the fishes that live in the sea. we may have a difficult time deciding who will be right for us and for our future. a girl has to choose from what may seem like a pool of ego driven, thick-skulled, maniacs running around the soccer field paying attention only to their own senseless campaigns. Which is a nearly unbearable proposition. Faced with the pressure to choose a mate who will make her happy and provide the stability of a relationship she will undoubtably notice any boy that stands out above the norm. Wether he stands out for treating her different than the other boys, for being specifically talented, or for being a complete asshole it makes no difference. Whatever makes the decision easier as a means of coping with the pressure of having to make the decision. Even if that leads her to a great deal of trouble. I make decisions like this sometimes. I believe when it comes to relationships boys receive less pressure to get themselves into a relationship from both self inflicted and external influences.


Our freedom has enslaved us. Trapped our lives in a soulless traditionless, happiless, loveless pond of short lived pleasure and self inflicted misery.

Where to Run in the Pack

The fear of running at the front, is that if you fly too high, you have a long way to fall. But if you run from the back, your confidence gains it's rank without risk. And the psyche deals with gain much easier than it does with loss, no doubt. So it is better in the warmup races to run from the back and experience the freedom of pressure and the pleasure of understanding where one belongs. But not so much as to forget the responsibility of pushing yourself to your own limit and letting the rest try to match up.



The idea that happiness is only in transition from one state to another. But once we reach this new state we adapt to it's pleasure and eventually loose the happiness we originally incurred.

Who do you say I am?

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. 

It's not what we eat but what we digest that makes us strong... not what we profess but what we practice that gives us integrity.
Francis Bacon Sr.

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation... We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Suffering is the sole origin of consciousness.

Make friends with pain and you will never be alone.
Ken Chlouber
