If one understands eternity as timelessness, and not as an unending timespan, then whoever lives in the present lives for all time.
If a person tells me he has been to the worst places I have no reason to judge him; but if he tells me it was his superior wisdom that enabled him to go there, then I know he is a fraud.
I sit astride life like a bad rider on a horse. I only owe it to the horse’s good nature that I am not thrown off at this very moment.
I don’t know why we are here, but I’m pretty sure that it is not in order to enjoy ourselves.
