raise kids to be ethical and employable (don't laugh)
don't spend more than we earn so I don't have to be a cart lady at Walmart when I'm 70
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
Not happiness: whenever I focus on something outside me that I love, which I do whatever I want to, I feel extremely happy and peaceful. That is nice, but killing for my ambition.
Rather than pursuing happiness, I pursue a certain intensity of feeling, and a sense of intimacy with others. However, this is my natural interest (I'm sx/so). From a more rational, detached point of view, I can be interested in achieving something concrete, but that never gives me a lot of satisfaction; I think achieving things is only part of my "quest" because I want to be attractive for others.
I quest for truth.
I quest for the hidden secrets not yet known to public.
I quest for spirit.
I quest for my ideal self.
I quest for what is right.
I quest for time.
I quest for my wife.
I don't quest for what i already have. I don't quest for what I know.
