I rememeber

December 13, 2011

when I was in California, I wasn’t upset about being too broke to buy food but I cried because I had no books to read. The few times I had money, I found out the BX had a horrible selection of previously used romance and horror novels, and the only bookstores were in town so I had no way to get there. I went almost two months without reading a book. That makes me so sad.

“In fact, the conviction that the world and man is something that had better not have been, is of a kind to fill us with indulgence towards one another. Nay, from this point of view, we might well consider the proper form of address to be, not Monsieur, Sir, mein Herr, but my fellow sufferer, Soci malorum, compagnon de miseres. This may perhaps sound strange, but it is in keeping with the facts; it puts others in a right light; and it reminds us of that which is after all the most nescessary thing in life- the tolerance, patience, regard, and love of neighbor, of which everyone stands in need, and which, therefore, every man owes to his fellows.” -ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER
