‪The Greek word for return is nostos. Algos means suffering. So nostalgia is the suffering caused by an unappeased yearning to return.‬

Killing oneself is, anyway, a misnomer. We don’t kill ourselves. We are simply defeated by the long, hard struggle to stay alive. When somebody dies after a long illness, people are apt to say, with a note of approval, “He fought so hard.” And they are inclined to think, about a suicide, that no fight was involved, that somebody simply gave up. This is quite wrong.

“The universe doesn’t owe you some sense of cosmic purpose. It’s indifferent to your existence. In the grand scheme of it all, we are inconsequential grains of sand in a false god’s hourglass.

— Jay Camacho, The Nihilism of Now


Mitchell Heisman, age 35, shot himself september 18, 2010 in harvard yard on the top step of memorial church in front of a tour group of more than 20 people after he finished writing 1905 pages explaining why he chose to take his life.


He did not take his own life in a moment of madness, he had been trying to find meaning and purpose, but after he studied for years and questioned everything, he got to the conclusion that “There is nothing to take seriously!” This is not the story of a sad of a lonely man, it’s the story of the human condition in this world.

Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.

Jim Rohn


The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized – never knowing.

Jim Rohn


We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.

Jim Rohn






Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.

Jim Rohn


If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planed for you? Not much.

Jim Rohn
