"People will always choose safety over freedom" -Napoleon Boneparte

I am a finite being trying to understand an infinite universe. I am not meant to know the answer to the question of life. I couldn’t handle it, but I think, in truth, I have to try. I have to search to understand, knowing, all the while, that I can only go so far, knowing that I will reach a barrier, and then the hard part is knowing that I must overcome it, and the hardest part is knowing that once I do, I must die.

and of life.


Here's to knowledge.




The power to question is the basis of all human progress.
