one life, one chance

”courage is not the absence of fear. courage is fear walking.” Susana David

life is not primarily quest of pleasure as Freud believed, or a quest of power according to Adler. i see life as a quest for meaning, the greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life. Victor Frankl saw three possible sources of meaning; in work (doing something significant), in love (caring for another person) and in courage during the difficult times.

‘long’ time ago i saw it written in big letters ‘one life. one chance’. that simple deep sentence changed my view of life forever. 4 better.

personal note:

when separate we are ordinary.

when together we are exceptional.


big boys don’t cry

from motion picture ”Interstellar”:

Cooper: You’re a scientist, Brand

Brand: I am. So listen to me when I tell you that love isn’t something we invented – it’s observable, powerful. Why shouldn’t it mean something?

Cooper: It means social utility – child rearing, social bonding

Brand: We love people who’ve died…where’s the social utility in that? Maybe it means more – something we can’t understand, yet. Maybe it’s some evidence, some artefact of higher dimensions that we can’t consciously perceive. I’m drawn across the universe to someone I haven’t seen for a decade, who I know is probably dead. Love is the one thing we’re capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can’t yet understand it.

personal note:

she saved my life. did it more than once.

guess she will never ever leave me.

probably not even when I ‘die’.

She >> Love

ab as aurora borealis

i wish to visit Iceland like no other country. and ‘must’ see aurora borealis in this life.

there’s only one thing i do mind about Iceland and that is they ‘don’t like’ dogs, rather prefer cats. in other words, dogs were banned in Reykjavik till 1984.

who am i to judge; Iceland is absolutely divine on photos, with or without dogs.
