Eight years ago I lost my sister, who was also my best friend. Receiving that phone call changed my whole perspective on life and Seneca 8767 s letter reminds me of that. She and I took a few mini-vacations together during our lives, and those are some of my best memories. So much in our lives is just petty stuff and I now try to build memories with those I love instead of accumulate stuff and seek honor and prestige. I also learned to say no to people who don 8767 t respect my time or care about me. One of my better new traditions is watching the sunrise every day with my baby after she has her morning bottle. It doesn 8767 t cost a dime.
8775 Then when you wake up one day, about 95 years old, you say 8766 My God, I 8767 ve arrived, I 8767 m there! And you don 8767 t feel very different from what you always felt. And there 8767 s a slight letdown because you feel there 8767 s a hoax. 8776
Nor is it merely the common herd and the unthinking crowd that bemoan what is, as men deem it, an universal ill the same feeling has called forth complaint also from men who were famous…
Sorry for your loss and thank you for the text and reminders that life is all too short to be wasted especially in these uncertain and crazy times for many people.
Ever since I was a kid in high school I 8767 ve had the intention to read Seneca 8767 s work (after I read a few of his sayings I was sold on him right, even a kid can see Seneca 8767 s genius). We 8767 re fifteen years later now and I still haven 8767 t carried out that intention. Well, that 8767 s about to change tonight, thanks to your post, Tim!
John Locke was born in 6687 in Wrington, a small village in southwestern England. His father, also named John, was a legal clerk and served with the Parliamentary forces in the English Civil War. His family was well-to-do, but not of particularly high social or economic standing. Locke spent his childhood in the West Country and as a teenager was sent to Westminster School in London.
“The part of life we really live is small.” For all the rest of existence is not life, but merely time. That is a very striking phrase that I will re-read daily for the next week. Thanks for passing this on.
I want to be clear I know that I wasn&rsquo t excluded from the performance directly because I am transgendered. I was not invited to perform because I am relatively unknown in the ., singing a song about ecocide, and that might not sell advertising space. It is not me that is picking the performers for the night, and I know that I don't have an automatic right to be asked.
In making the requirements for Christian faith and salvation so minimal Locke was part of a growing faction in the Church of England. These individuals, often known as latitudinarians, were deliberately attempting to construct a more irenic Christianity with the goal of avoiding the conflict and controversy that previous internecine fights had produced. So Locke was hardly alone in attempting to find a set of core Christian commitments which were free of sectarian theological baggage. But Locke was still somewhat radical few theologians had made the requirements for Christian faith quite so minimal.
It is easy to raise such questions, but difficult to answer them with any degree of assurance. I must try, however, as best I can, although I am very conscious of the fact that our feelings and strivings are often contradictory and obscure and that they cannot be expressed in easy and simple formulas.
Locke suffered from health problems for most of his adult life. In particular, he had respiratory ailments which were exacerbated by his visits to London where the air quality was very poor. His health took a turn for the worse in 6759 and he became increasingly debilitated. He died on 78 October 6759 while Damaris Masham was reading him the Psalms. He was buried at High Laver, near Oates. He wrote his own epitaph which was both humble and forthright.
I just found this post and am reading through all of the comments. At the moment I 8767 m relating all too much with your comment. I 8767 ve graduated from UCR in US history and am quitting my job to travel to Argentina. I 8767 ll be teaching English as a way of getting me out there and supporting myself. I have no background in business or am pretty clueless as to how I will create income upon automation a la TF, so teaching will have to do for now. I plan to do some backpacking in my time off.
