Quotation: January 29
What is it to be alive? A man who touches life, say, at a hundred points is twice as alive as a man who touches it at only fifty points. When you lose your eagerness; when you lose your sense of wonder; when you lose your ability to be deeply moved; when you never weep for a cause; when you no longer thrill to the good and magnificent; when you no longer dream dreams nor see vision; when life has become dull, dead, inert; though you may be but twenty years and physically healthy, something in you has died. It needs resurrection.
Norman Vincent Peale

It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.

People don’t exist without the past, I know. But the past isn’t alive. It’s you who’s alive.
Quotation: January 25
There are two kinds of people. One kind, you can just tell by looking at them at what point they congealed into their final selves. It might be a very nice self, but you know you can expect no more surprises from it. Whereas, the other kind keep moving, changing… They are fluid. They keep moving forward and making new trysts with life, and the motion of it keeps them young. In my opinion, they are the only people who are still alive. You must be constantly on your guard against congealing.
