    Found this quote by spiritualist Don Miguel Ruiz https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don_Miguel_Ruiz

    “The real you is loving, joyful and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.”

    I think it was Rilke who said: "When I drink a one glass, I become another person. And that person likes to drink soooooo very much."

    Found a poem by Rilke that's a bit more complex but mentions drink: https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/worl...f-the-beloved/

    “I can control my passions and emotions if I can understand their nature” – Spinoza...

    This was, in essence though not in name, our lesson for this past week in our Emotional Resilience class Chapter Six (and perhaps other chapters as well)... https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/...urces?lang=eng My second time going through these lessons... I'm in charge of refreshments tonight

    “It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.” -

    In life, the challenge is not so much to figure out how best to play the game; the challenge is to figure out what game you're playing

    A very intriguing topic to talk or think about: "Is the reality an illusion?". or "Are we living in a simulation?" LOL

    “I suppose therefore that all things I see are illusions; I believe that nothing has ever existed of everything my lying memory tells me.

    ― Rene Descartes

    "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."

    - Albert Einstein


    All laws are simulations of reality.

    John C. Lilly


    “Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.”

    ― Niels Bohr

    ...and so on and so forth...

    Some (mostly) interesting thoughts in this article on reality: https://philosophynow.org/issues/61/...ure_Of_Reality

    "The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless." - Jean-Jacques Rousseau
