My religion is seeing the glass half empty and offering the water inside of it to those who are in need of understanding. I am a pessimist of kindness. Life goes terribly wrong indeed, but that doesn’t mean we can’t help a fellow human being find their way towards the light while possessing a little bit of sadness in our souls.
the philosophical cure
is not optimism
but rather pessimism.
“the world is beautiful
and there’s no reason to be sad.”
“look at all these countries
let’s go get some ice cream
and just listen to some sad records.”
—I Am The Architect of My Own Destruction, page 92
