“Make a Radical Change in Your Lifestyle” / “If You Never Did, You Should”


“Don’t dwell on negative thoughts, you loser.”   (God, @TheTweetOfGod)



“Life is nothing but a long-ass, complex series of moments, each of which is filled to the brim with countless opportunities.  They’re right there, in front of and around and inside each and every one of us, constantly.”   (Manimal)



“I believe we were created to evolve.  Otherwise Jesus would have said, ‘Now, don’t do a thing until I get back!’”   (Swami Beyondananda)



“Almost nothing important that ever happens to you happens because you engineer it.  Destiny has no beeper; destiny always leans trench-coated out of an alley with some sort of ‘pssstt’ that you usually can’t even hear because you’re in such a rush to do something important you’ve tried to engineer.”   (David Foster Wallace)



“It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one’s life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than ‘try to be a little kinder.’”   (Aldous Huxley)



“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt.  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 conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secured 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.  If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you as crazy.  But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”   (Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild)



“If you never did, you should.  These things are fun, and fun is good.”   (Dr. Seuss)
