Man, the bravest animal and most prone to suffer, does not deny suffering as such: he wills it, he even seeks it out, provided he is shown a meaning for it, a purpose of suffering. The meaninglesness of suffering — not the suffering — was the curse that has so far blanketed mankind.
Discussion is when you try to decide what is right, and an argument is when you try to prove who is right.
Simple and straightforward doesn’t necessarily means easy.
In reality, feeling intense anxiety—that means you’re on the right track towards becoming yourself.
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
