I have never had a set path– never believed in one. Life is an adventure, you take it as it comes. People come and go, opportunities pass by. Life is all just one coming of age story. Each class, each adventure, each person, each world event shapes your beliefs, your thoughts, your soul.
I don’t dwell on the past. I just keep moving forward. Memories will always be there. Don’t like them, laugh them off. No need to be serious. Life should be fun.
Where does life lead me? How does it shape me? follow me.
For if we allow that human life is always guided by reason, we destroy the premise that life is possible at all.
Tolstoy, War and Peace Vol. III
I am no bird; and no net ensures me; I am a free human being with an independent will.
Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
Being alone in the wilderness, it had looked within itself, and, by heavens! I tell you, it had gone mad.
Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
Reason was given to man to help him escape his anxiety.
Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
Vice and Virtue are to the artist materials for an art.
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

But it is important to know this, to know your roots. To know where you started as a person. If not, your own life seems unreal to you.
Khaled Hosseini, And the Mountains Echoed
