    “There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.”

    “In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.”

    “It is odd that we have so little relationship with nature, with the insects and the leaping frog and the owl that hoots among the hills calling for its mate. We never seem to have a feeling for all living things on the earth.”

    “You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life.”

    “One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.”

    “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

    We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free.” Jiddu Krishnamurti

    One of the best yet. I intend to find out more about Jiddu. I have a friend, Chis Cherry who’s passion is explosives. As kids he would experiment with different formulas to try to maximize their power. Now days he would have been stopped from pursuing his passion. As it is, he now develops things that disarm bombs. He was called in to disarm the Unibomber’s cabin, and also the Shoe-bomber. Some of his robots that he developed use explosives do drive water, like a power washer on steroids. This power washer slices up the bomb into harmless pieces. Who would have thought that explosives would be used to save people?

    Sometimes you persist and level-up…and sometimes you stop wasting time with a marginal hobby and devote yourself to a need that presents itself; and sometime you change careers several times before you connect with a passion. Passion and duty get us up in the morning, life kind of takes over after that; but with a selective memory and a good God overhead, an anonymous life can still look pretty good at the end of the day.

    Improving your craft and reaching others is the journey and its joy. It may lead to fame or it may not, but that’s not the point of the journey.
