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.

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.
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.
