Opinions Mean Nothing / Asians / What is Fun?

“Opinions mean nothing; they may be beautiful or ugly, clever or foolish, anyone can embrace or reject them.”

Whatever you say, no one could really care less. It’s not their problem, so deal with your own problems. Geez man, figure it out. Sorta reminds me of that recent Big Sean song…

Love And Its Impact

Reading the book Siddhartha,  I stumbled upon a quote that said “It seems to me, Govinda, that love is the most important thing in the world.” In this quote Siddhartha, a man who leaves home for spiritual enlightenment, (not Buddha) talks to his friend Govinda in his later years.

In the tragedy Romeo and Juliet, Romeo meets Juliet on the balcony even though their families hate each other. This is a perfect example where love beats fear. Love plays other roles also. For example, a student’s love for learning can get him to college or a man’s love for sports can get him the Olympic medal. In history, one important example where love played a big role is when Henry VIII separated from the Roman Catholic Church and created the Anglican Church so he could divorce his wife Catherine of Aragon for Anne Boleyn.
