I like that. Here’s one: if I am not for myself, who will be? If I am for myself only, what am I? And if not now, when?

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are

“I don’t know why we are here, but i’m certain it isn’t to enjoy ourselves.” - old philosopher

An original…

“Life. You can’t live with it and you can’t live without it”.

Thank you very much ladies and gentlemen. 77nick77 has left the building.

“Wheels have been set in motion, and they have their own pace, to which we are…condemned. Each move is dictated by the previous one - that is the meaning of order. If we start being arbitrary it’ll just be a shambles: at least, let us hope so. Because if we happened, just happened to discover, or even suspect, that our spontaneity was part of their order, we’d know that we were lost. A Chinaman of the T’ang Dynasty - and, by which definition, a philosopher - dreamed he was a butterfly, and from that moment he was never quite sure that he was not a butterfly dreaming it was a Chinese philosopher. Envy him; his two-fold security. ”
― Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
