Well it’s honestly not the full quote, it’s from one of Shakespeare’s plays.

I just thought it was cool and wanted to share

This quote is very true for me, especially lately as I am attending a funeral tomorrow for my brother in law. I really have to try to just think happy thoughts as I have had problems with him in the past and have opinions about him.

Doesn’t sound like you guys had the best relationship. Hope the funeral goes okay tho…

Right. I haven’t read any of Nietzsche, but I do like his aphorisms. Maybe I will get around to reading him one day.

We mustn’t forget that the subjection of women is so great and so old that we often refuse to comprehend the abyss that separates them from us.

I close my eyes and there is nothing there, no self, no thoughts or sound, just an abyss, not even any emotion of anger or hate. Is something in the abyss looking at me?
