"There is no escape. You can't be a vagabond and an artist and still be a solid citizen, a wholesome, upstanding man. You want to get drunk, so you have to accept the hangover. You say yes to the sunlight and pure fantasies, so you have to say yes to the filth and the nausea. Everything is within you, gold and mud, happiness and pain, the laughter of childhood and the apprehension of death. Say yes to everything, shirk nothing. You are not harmonious, or the master of yourself. You are a bird in the storm. Let it storm! Let it drive you!"Herman Hesse
Adaptation being the meaning of life? Let change create who you are? I feel like this should say more about balancing change and who you want to be. I like it though it definitely promotes thought.
Makes me think...
My favorite writer when I was a teenager.... this is just the reminder I needed.
