Predictability or Chaos?

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, thoroughly used, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming …....

"F*#@, what a trip!"

I love this.

It is ok that some go through their life in a planned and predictable way - that is probably one way of living a relatively untroubled life.

It is also ok that others have no plan or direction but tend to live for the day with perhaps an overall goal but no sure plan of how that might be achieved.

I would never be so arrogant as to suggest there is a right and wrong way of living our lives.

I would however say judging the way other people live their lives in unhelpful at best and downright rude at worst.

Enjoy the quotation anyway!

Trevor, that´s exactly what Sarte called "contingency".

It was Sartre, Jean Paul Sartre, not Sarte.
