我走我的路。你呢?

Reading Daniel Bell.

Those who do not choose their own plans of life, says John Stuart Mill are no better than apes..
” The human facilities of perception, judgement, discriminative feeling, mental activity, and even moral preference, are only exercised only in making a choice..He who lets the world, or his own portion of it, choose his plan of life for him, has no need of any other faculty than the ape-like one of imitation…”
—On Liberty (Three Essays)

How much time do we spend upgrading ourselves? Or do I spend most of the time wondering what life has in store for my otherwise mundane existence?

Here’s another inspiration from Michael Walzer’s book Thick and Thin.

“Jean- Paul Sartre’s account of the self-creation of the intellectual. The intellectual achieves his guardianship by constantly critisizing and radicalizing (himself) ”

Live

Learn

Laugh.

Education Education Education.

What more could I say?

読書の秋.

My favourite season.
Autumn leaves.

Its subtle beauty.

The meloncholia of autumn drifts in the air that i breathe.

As i walk the walk, with a silly grin on my face, i greet the red and gold leaves with an enthusiam long forgotten.

After the midterm exams, I am so looking forward to a walk down 明治神宮外苑。With my hegemon and our books. Cos nothing, absolutely nothing, beats reading a good book together with someone you connect with.

Merci, mon Dieu.

Il est gentil, non?
