Hip School Preppy

Intellect. Inspiration. Individuality.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.
~Robert Fulghum

We love ourselves to the point of idolatry; but we also intensely dislike ourselves — we find ourselves unutterably boring. Correlated with this distaste for the idolatrously worshipped self, there is in all of us a desire, sometimes latent, sometimes conscious and passionately expressed, to escape from the prison of our individuality, an urge to self-transcendence. It is to this urge that we owe mystical theology, spiritual exercises and yoga — to this, too, that we owe alcoholism and drug addiction.
~Aldous Huxley, from his essay Drugs that Shape Men’s Minds, which eventually was published in the book Moksha.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.~John Wooden
The clearest way into the Universe is through the forest wilderness.

What if evil doesn’t really exist? What if evil is something dreamed up by man, and there is nothing to struggle, against except our own limitations? The constant battle between our will, our desires, and our choices?

“Do me a favor…Stand up, walk to wherever the nearest wind is, and just look outside. You may not know this, but there’s an entire planets-worth of summers, friends, sunsets, street lamps, songs, late nights, great films, and night skies waiting for you. Your life is amazing as you want it to be, but first, you have to let it be that way.”

Wisdom means to choose now what will make sense later. I am learning everyday to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be, to inspire me and not terrify me.
~Tracee Ellis Ross
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take Pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place. 
~Iain Thomas
