I have always loved this quote. It makes you believe in the possibility of things…especially if you don’t know any better. Who says theories can’t be proven wrong if you only try? I love it! Fly, bumblebee, fly!!! :)1 week ago

I was just reading an entry from maraschin0, on her goal of ‘Collect quotes and sayings’, and found this to be of interest. :) When I searched online to find the author, all I could find was this amazing piece on Scott Adam’s Blog, entitled, ‘Who are you?’ that was the same wording as what maraschin0 posted, but with more added on that I really love:

Sometimes a writer’s job is to say what people are thinking, but say it better than they are thinking it. Watch me do that now.
Have you ever wondered who you are? You’re not your body, because living cells come and go and are generally outside of your control. You’re not your location, because that can change. You aren’t your DNA because that simply defines the boundaries of your playing field. You aren’t your upbringing because siblings routinely go in different directions no matter how similar their start. My best answer to my own question is this:
You are what you learn.
If all you know is how to be a gang member, that’s what you’ll be, at least until you learn something else. If you become a marine, you’ll learn to control fear. If you go to law school, you’ll see the world as a competition. If you study engineering, you’ll start to see the world as a complicated machine that needs tweaking.
I’m fascinated by the way a person changes at a fundamental level as he or she merges with a particular field of knowledge. People who study economics come out the other side thinking a different way from people who study nursing. And learning becomes a fairly permanent part of a person even as the cells in the body come and go and the circumstances of life change.
You can easily nitpick my definition of self by arguing that you are actually many things, including your DNA, your body, your mind, you environment and more. By that view, you’re more of a soup than a single ingredient. I’ll grant you the validity of that view. But I’ll argue that the most powerful point of view is that you are what you learn.
It’s easy to feel trapped in your own life. Circumstances can sometimes feel as if they form a jail around you. But there’s almost nothing you can’t learn your way out of. If you don’t like who you are, you have the option of learning until you become someone else. Life is like a jail with an unlocked, heavy door. You’re free the minute you realize the door will open if you simply lean into it.
Suppose you don’t like your social life. You can learn how to be the sort of person that attracts better friends. Don’t like your body? You can learn how to eat right and exercise until you have a new one. You can even learn how to dress better and speak in more interesting ways.
I credit my late mother for my view of learning. She raised me to believe I could become whatever I bothered to learn. No single idea has served me better.”2 weeks ago

I simply adore this man right here…
He makes me smile.
He’s smart, he’s funny, he’s quite handsome’, he’s charismatic, he’s great with media and makes me want to pay attention…
And, he’s gay (WHO CARES, RIGHT?). I’m so happy he came out a while back and can fully be himself and be happy and content with himself. Sad that women don’t have a chance, but lucky men. :)
I hate that this picture is too large for this post, but I love it just the same. <34 weeks ago

“When I was 5 years old, my mother told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, I told them they didn’t undetstand life.” ~John Lennon 1 month ago

~In the spring of 1975, Muhammad Ali was invited to give the commencement address at Harvard University. Toward the end of his speech, an audience member hollered out, “Give us a poem!” Ali’s response was all of two words: “Me, We.”
The social constructs of race, ethnicity, gender, class, nationality, religion, political ideology and sexual orientation are merely labels that have become so intertwined and embedded in our minds that we fail to see the underlining truth. We are all the same.
