No, but I've got the tee shirt, so I might be tempted to give an insider's view if I heard it IRL.
“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
Yes, because it sounds like they are more concerned about following the social protocol than in finding the right person.
A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
It feels alien to me but i recognize it as a valid life goal and need. Some people seem just born to that role, like a fish to water. I admire their skills and level of...well..professionalism in this area very much. Compared to them, I often feel like a hack
I can't relate... the notion of having your greatest aspiration in life depend on another person to that degree just makes my skin crawl, a little.
Like everyone else has said here.. whatever works for each individual. It doesn't disturb me if someone else has a fulfilling life achieving that 'dream.' That's their business. They're not hurting anyone.. and it's their life, not mine.
But yeah, if it were posed to me, as in, "wouldn't your life's purpose be realized if you became a wife?!"
I'd just.. back the fuck away...
