When you're doing something, just do it.

"Materialism is the red herring of The Sims," he says, "Nobody seems to pick up on that. The more you play, the more you realize that all the stuff you buy eventually breaks down and creates all these little explosions in your life. If you play long enough, you start to realize that those little things won't really make you happy."

"No man for any considerable period can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true."
--Nathaniel Hawthorne, 'Scarlet Letter'

I already am, I always was, and I still have time to be.

People will believe anything if you whisper it.

“Everything you forget cries for help in your dreams.”
--Elias Canetti

“Zen is very simple. Dishwashing time, just wash dishes; sitting time, just sit; driving time, just drive; talking time, just talk; walking time, just walk. That’s all. Not special. But that is very difficult. That is absolutes thinking. When you’re doing something, just do it. No opposites. No subject, no object. No inside, no outside. Outside and inside become one. That’s called absolutes.”
--Zen Master Seung Sahn
