Some of my favorite quotes....

During a clean I stumbled on my old diary, which has some nice words of wisdom. I decided to compile and put them online, so here they are.

1. I have only just a minute, only 60 s in it, forced upon me - can't refuse it. Didn't seek it, didn't choose it, but it was up to me to use it. I must suffer if I loose it, give account if I abuse it. Just a tiny little minute. But eternity is in it. 

2. Do not tell your problems to people. 80% do not care about them and 20% are happy that you have them.

3. All that is precious in life is a secret. Love is a secret. Life is a secret. The world is a secret. Your feelings, your emotions are secret. You are the biggest secret. 

4. Everything is changing. And this is all there only to heat you up, to bake you. You are baked in joy, and you are baked in sorrow. You are baked in this event, and you are baked in that event. If you put your finger deeper into things you will get burned, so move lightly. 

5. (a) Reality exists as an objective absolute - facts are facts independent of man's feelings, wishes, hopes or fears.

(b) Every man is an end in himself, not the means to end of others. He must exits for his own sake, neither sacrificing himself to others nor sacrificing others to himself. 

(c) The pursuit of his own rational self interest and of his own happiness is the highest moral purpose of his life. 

Best regards,
