So I was sitting in a cafe shop doing absolutely nothing, then my thoughts just went to these quotes I read a while back…
“For the Present is the point at which time touches eternity.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters
“In the external scheme of things, shining moments are as brief as the twinkling of an eye,
yet such twinklings are what eternity is made of —
moments when we human beings can say “I love you,” “I’m proud of you,” “I forgive you,” “I’m grateful for you.”
That’s what eternity is made of: invisible imperishable good stuff.”
― Fred Rogers, The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things To Remember
I don’t know what exactly they put in these caffeine filled cups that makes people become temporarily contemplative about life and stuff, but I am in that state right now. And because I’m beginning this wordpress site in such a state, I figured those two thought-provoking quotes could be the perfect opening to all the posts that would follow. In a way, they are what this is all about.
They say people change all the time. I agree, they certainly do. Age, physical appearance, as well as ideas and goals.
But for me, I found out that there are certain questions about life and society that I just can’t seem to stop thinking about no matter how much time passes, where I am, or what I’m doing. Without fail, my thoughts always come back to questions of virtue and morality in the society, and then existence and identity in the individual sense. Or vice versa.
So, to anyone wondering, there is no thesis statement to this blog site. I haven’t found one. All I have are questions and thoughts, maybe half-answers, but never a definite answer. I doubt anyone out there is interested in reading all these stuff, but I have to write this down because it’s a public site after all… all of the posts are my own opinion, not associated with any organization or group or whatever. I hope I don’t offend anyone, but if I do, I really didn’t mean it. Sorry.
