mixed mood

Not sure how to proceed through the day, if at all. So let's spend time in the extremes ...

Here are the first three verses of Genesis:

1. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Pick any word in the first verse, count its letters, and move ahead by the corresponding number of words. For example, if you start at beginning, you'd count 9 letters and move ahead 9 words, landing on the in the second verse. Count that word's letters and continue in this manner until you've entered the third verse.

You'll always arrive at God.

Qyotes from Friedrich Nietzsche :

One should die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly.

If you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.

A good writer possesses not only his own spirit but also the spirit of his friends.

Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man.

Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter.

To predict the behavior of ordinary people in advance, you only have to assume that they will always try to escape a disagreeable situation with the smallest possible expenditure of intelligence.
