    I have little mini-quests like helping the 'less fortunate' pack out city council and school board meetings and stuff like that in order get things done in my community. It's sort of a part of my broad, nebulous mission in life to promote social justice, but I prioritize my other quests. Screwing up my own life in pursuit of making others' lives better would be counterproductive.
    “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.”

    I don't quest for anything.

    I have a quest for knowledge. And I know it's a never-ending quest but it's the only one I want to do.

    This is as profound as it is simple and it totally resonates with me.

    Irresponsibility, unaccountability, hedonism and self-congratulation.

    I been reviewing some of my books which make me think about this, I dont really understand self-actualisation besides becoming contented, which I'm not sure it is, and I did decide that I liked the idea in both Orwell and Simone Weil about seeking to eradicate unnecessary or avoidable poverty, ignorance and suffering but I keep coming back to the idea of "Living Life With a Capital L", I'm not sure what it means exactly though.

    It branches out from a quote that I remember from years ago about filling your days with life not your life with days, so how do you do that? Or what does that involve? Could that be considered a quest?

    I'm also ambivalent as to whether or not it would just result in more consumerism or impulse buying in the present day and age.
