“All men and women are born, live, suffer and die; what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams, whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things, and what we do to make them come about… We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death. But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live.” Joseph Epstein

Heard this quote for the frst time today, like it quite a bit. Although we all know it, it is interesting that we actually have all been blessed with a body to think and act, and thats all we are … like the thinking man … I think, therefore I am, similarly, I dream, terefore I am.

Dream on!
