“When the sound and wholesome nature of man acts as an entirety, when he feels himself in the world as in a grand, beautiful, worthy, and worthwhile whole, when this harmonious comfort affords him a pure, untrammeled delight; then if the universe, if it could be sensible of itself, would shout for joy at having attained its goal and wonder at the pinnacle of its own essence and evolution. For what is served by all the expenditure of suns and planets and moons, of stars and Milky Ways, of comets and nebula, of worlds evolving and passing away, if at last a happy man does not involuntarily rejoice in his own existence.”

-Goethe

“Let the mind beware, that though the flesh be bugged, the circumstances of existence are pretty glorious.”

-Jack Kerouac
