It's good not knowing

This world is a beautiful place. Even though there's crap happening all around but as they say, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. It's just the way you see things that make them good or bad. One of the things that I find really amazing in the universe is that you don't know what's about to happen. If someone, by chance has the gift of finding out what is going to happen in the future, I suspect he would be a very sad person. Even the most pessimistic person in this world is not 100% sure that bad stuff is going to happen to him. There's still a little chance that something good can happen. Although, that is another thing that his pessimism will not allow him to appreciate it.

It's just good, not knowing what's about to happen. It's happening to a lot of people around the world everyday - you think that you have life all figured out, when it suddenly strikes you in the face and something totally unexpected suddenly happens. It just tells you that no one has life completely figured out. Everyone is surprised one time or the other. That, I feel is beautiful. And I don't think we are supposed to figure out life completely. If we ever do, it would be a sad day in the history of humankind. Although, I think that god would not let that happen. Life can't get too boring. Just believing that whatever shit you're in, you'll get out of it if you believe you can. This is where god is important. God gives so many people the faith that they are gonna come out of shit some day. Even if you have a little bit of optimism to appreciate that happens to you, I think you'll do just fine. As a tribute to Steve Jobs - Stay hungry, stay foolish.

i think one of the foremost things that make life worth living is art.

science makes it possible. art gives us a reason to live.

another beautiful thing is human relationships...

i can imagine how a person in love finds beauty in everything... it's amazing... how we look at things change them....
