"For what purpose humanity is here should not even concern us: why YOU are there, THAT you should ask yourself: and if you have no ready answer, then set for yourself goals, high and noble goals, and perish in pursuit of them! I know of no better life purpose than to perish in attempting the great and the impossible"

"You are your own forerunner, and the towers you have built are but the foundation of your giant-self. And that self too shall be a foundation.

And I too am my own forerunner, for the long shadow stretching before me at sunrise shall gather under my feet at the noon hour. Yet another sunrise shall lay another shadow before me, and that also shall be gathered at another noon.

Always have we been our own forerunners, and always shall we be. And all that we have gathered and shall gather shall be but seeds for fields yet unploughed. We are the fields and the ploughmen, the gatherers and the gathered."

Words, words, words....

Sometimes things work out. Sometimes they don't.

My mom had a pretty miserable life. 40 years married to a jerk. When my father passed in 2002, I thought, well, now maybe she can enjoy life. Come to find out she was in early stage Alzheimer's. Started having vile hallucinations, too. Now It has progressed to the point where she is in an absolute living hell. I'm really not exaggerating, though I surely wish I was. My one wish for her was that, after her husband passed, that however many remaining years she had left, they would be good for her.

Words can be great, but they cannot always overcome life.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Sorry to hear that Chessman.

At least your Mom's life was a success in one way.

She had you. Someone who loves her so much.

At the end, life is just a collection of memories. Mine and yours are totally different. Words are the only way to pass it on, the experience and the knowledge.

Just wanting to learn and be inspired by the knowledge that successful people have passed on here...

Here's one I live to now, after suffering from severe depression...

Everything in life is fixable, whether that be eduacation, friends, families or jobs. It is also never to late to fix these things.

At 33, in 2nd year of university and perfoming magic again shows that this can be done.

As someone else posted, If you commit suicide, the jerks win.
hey... Smile Smile Smile ... what is this signature saying about me?!

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan
