The elemental fact, present in our consciousness every moment of our existence, is: i am life that wills to live, in the midst of life that wills to live.... The essence of the humane spirit is: preserve life, promote life, help life to achieve its highest destiny. The essence of evil is: destroy life, harm life, hamper the development of life
The great object of education should be commensurate with the object of life. It should be a moral one; to teach self-trust: to inspire the youthful man with an interest in himself; with a curiosity touching his own nature; to acquaint him with the resources of his mind, and to teach him that there is all his strength.

We are not made up only of our light and happiness but also of darkness and sorrow. to deny the darkness of yourself is to deny half of who you are, and when you love, truly love, you need to love the whole person not just the part that smiles and waves, but the part that thinks murderous thoughts and knows that pain is both pleasure and temptation, but still thinks puppies are really cute.

So what’s it like to live without emotions? (geary) it’s hard. imagine a world without taste. a world where you can see the colors and all, but you can’t feel it. a beautiful clear day can never choke you up. a child’s laughter doesn’t make you smile. you don’t look at a bunny and think ‘how cute.’ you feel absolutely nothing. it’s like being wrapped in thick cotton all the time.
