A New and Different Sun

2 12 2009

“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 conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure 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.”
— Chris McCandless (or Alexander Supertramp)





Launch the Revolution

21 09 2009

“Hers was the generation that would launch the revolution, but which for the moment was turning blue for the want for air. The generation reaching consciousness in a society that lacked any. The generation that despite the consensus that declared change impossible hankered for change all the same.”

– Junot Diaz, “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao”
