Identity is the compilation of where you spend time. What defines it is a sense of belonging, the people I meet as well as the places I’ve been. I feel like an onion: there are layers and layers, but at the core, there’s nothing.

Olafur Eliason



Humility is the proper estimate of oneself.

Charles Spurgeon

end of meaning


I had motives for not wanting the world to have a meaning; consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption. The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in metaphysics, he is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not seize political power and govern in the way that they find most advantegous to themselves… For myself, the philosophy of meaningless was essentially an instrument of liberation, sexual and political.

Aldous Huxley Ends And Means



An unfulfilled vocation drains the colour from a man’s entire existence.

Honore de Balzac

Albert Camus



Cities should not be seen as as monsters… but communities of people with need.

J.N. Manokaran



The way to find out what you are really living for is to look at your nightmares.
