[ forever toughts ]
from 1961 ' notebook . . .
"the more the senses are alert and sensitive the sharper the brain is"
"self-critical awareness is essencial"
"social values are based on doing something for the sake of something else"
"why do we choose the worst and not the better ? why hate rather than love ? why be mean when there are soaring mountains and flashing streams ? why jelously and not love ? why war and not peace ?
"how little we know about ourselves. we seem to know so much about other things, the distance to the moon, the atmosphere of venus, how to break out the atoms, but we know so little about ourselves. to go to the moon its far more exciting than to go into ourselves, wich is a much longer journey than to go to the moon, no machines are available to take this journey and no one can help, no book, no theories, no guide. You have to do it yourself."
"you are the accumulated result of the many thousand centuries of man."
