Try to keep that in mind.

Life, living, is all about stripping silly egocentricities away and learning to be open and unfearing of the things in life you know little about.

A man who has lost fear, and retained his desire to learn and to experience will stay a child until he dies. Nothing matters.

Yes we have societal constraints and we have laws and politics.... but unless you have a desire to trulu behave in a manner that is hurtful or has a negative effect on things or people around you, this can never hold you back from experiencing your life in an open and free way. Existentially you can control the direction.... or you can not control it. Thats the joy of existing free.
This is probably post digging, but I thought this was a great post. Really goes to show how being younger (I'm 19) on a board with some great adults can really help you out in learning a thing or two about life.
