I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
-Heinlein

He who knows not and knows not he knows not, He is a fool - Shun him.
He who knows not and knows he knows not, He is simple - Teach him.
He who knows and knows not he knows, he is asleep - Awaken him.
He who knows and knows that he knows, He is wise - Follow him.
- Chinese proverb

- Chinese proverb

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

I don’t know what it is about youThat makes me catch my breathe every time you look at meThe nerves that make me shakeBeing near your body gives mine this magnetic pull towards you.What it is about you?
I’ve been in love. I’ve been hurt from it, and I’ve felt like floating on a cloud from it.I’ve been there. I’ve felt crazy feelings before. And I’ve had my share of “crushes” – but this, this is no childish crush.
I never fall for anyone like this. I’m so guarded. Too guarded. With SO many expectations because I learned that’s what will protect me.
I don’t know what it is about youBut I can’t find a flaw.Because even your flaws to others, just make you an even more beautiful person to me. You are such a REAL person. You have passion in your soul. So gentle and so powerful at the same time. Your humility is stunning. You are truly a man in every sense of the word. You are exactly the kind of person I want in my life.Is this what it is about you?
Is that what it is that makes me want to knock down every wall I’ve created. I’ll risk it all and never think twice.
And God your eyes! The only thing that could make your eyes more perfect would be me inside of them, us together.
But here comes reality. You have someone else. Although whenever we are together (innocently of course) you can’t deny what we both know we feel. I don’t need to ask if you feel the same because I already know you do. And out of whatever reason, if you feel she is what you want in your life, then so be it. I can respect that. But please be honest with yourself, don’t deny the truth. Don’t be scared to lose the comfort and go out on this crazy limb with me. Maybe we’ll fall flat on our asses, but the thought of what it very well could be is amazing and I would take that leap with you.
I’ve never met such a perfect person for me.That’s exactly what is is about you…

“It’s when I’m standing six feet away from you and not being able to find the words to tell you how much I love you and how much I miss you that I want to just scream to the whole room that I’m still in love with you. It’s when I’m sitting alone with the phone in my hand dialing your number and hanging up that I would trade a thousand tomorrows for just one yesterday. Then I could just call you to tell you goodnight. It’s when I am really sad about something and need someone to talk to that I realize you’re the only one who really knew me at all. It’s when I cry myself to sleep at night and it hits me how much I would give to hold you at that very moment. It’s when I think about you that I realize no one else in the world is meant for me.”

When ‘Eve’ asked ‘Adam’ “Why am I?”Humanity became awareOf self, of others and the void;And learned we didn’t have to care.Since then we’ve tried in diverse waysTo fill the void the question leaves.Among them we continue to Diminish our capacitiesWith alcohol and drugs and sexAnd other ways to numb our mindSo if we ask the “why?” of lifeThe emptiness we cannot find.Some say it shouldn’t be a crime.But since we all add up to be,Subtracting some we should think is                                A crime against humanity.

When ‘Eve’ asked ‘Adam’ “Why am I?”
Humanity became aware
Of self, of others and the void;
And learned we didn’t have to care.
Since then we’ve tried in diverse ways
To fill the void the question leaves.
Among them we continue to 
Diminish our capacities
With alcohol and drugs and sex
And other ways to numb our mind
So if we ask the “why?” of life
The emptiness we cannot find.
Some say it shouldn’t be a crime.
But since we all add up to be,
Subtracting some we should think is                                
A crime against humanity.
