 thats a pretty good state to be in. I'm envious of you... just to be content with oneself and be able to sit in silence and be content is awesome, and not very common in todays, society. i like the first paragraph especially...

Existence....Literature....SO WHAT!?!?!?
littlenedved
I heard someone the other day say:

"Comparing oneself to others is how people measure their own existence"

This really struck me. How many times i say to myself i'm not good enough because this person can do this better than me and so forth. But upon reflecting on this statement and talking to a few people about it i find that everyone, has this mentality so is it a comparison to oneself or always a scrutiny of oneself?  Every time you "compare" yourself to someone u say oh look they are so much better than me or so much worse there is never the question of how can this persons strengths opr weaknesses help me to become a better person?


it got me thinking that in todays society everyone is so results driven that today we dont care how we get there or whats in our path but so long as we get to our destination we dont give a damn. This is the cause of our work-a-day world where no one stops to take in whats around them, where people cant enjoy the simple things and this is where i started thinking about this question: Literature, so what ?


Literature is like that word that you cant find, but is always at the tip of your tongue. waiting on the edges of darkness to be pulled out into the light for everyone to see in my time in this course i have found that inspiration can be found in the most mundane places and situations, but can bring about something spectacular, if only i took but three minutes to stop, look and listen.
