Inspiration Station #2

Editors Note: I'm getting a bit sick of my self righteousness too. This will be my last "free society, unsecure future" post for at least a few days. I promise.
It takes a lot of energy to be this lazy :)

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."— Chris McCandless

In the words of Snoop Dogg, "Preach." I have to agree: they call it the 'pursuit of happiness', not the 'comfort of happiness.'

People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
But when the darkness sets in,
Their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
