Quotes tagged “The Person You'll Become”
This is the freedom of real education, of learning how to be well-adjusted. You get to consciously decide what has meaning and what doesn't. That is real freedom. That is being educated, and understanding how to think.
None of this stuff is really about morality or religion or dogma or big fancy questions of life after death. The Capital T truth is about life before death. The real value of a real education has almost nothing to do with knowledge, and everything to do with simple awareness; awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sight all around us, all the time, that we have to keep reminding ourselves, over and over:
This is water.
This is water.”
