The Quiet Philosophy of A Young Girl

I noticed that whenever I focus all my attention on one thing, everything becomes background noise. The people sitting around me are like extras on a TV set. They don’t matter to me at all, but they’re still here. They matter to someone, somewhere else. It makes you wonder if you’re just in the background of someone else’s life. Is it really possible that we are somehow all connected or are we all just living here taking and buying everything we can get on hands on? Do we all have a purpose or just a select few? Time changes Life so quickly. One minute, you’re the same person you’ve always been; then ten years later you’re a totally different person. All of your experiences aren’t anything new, they’ve been happening for centuries. Life is just a series of trying to make up your mind. (Timothy Fuller)

We teach each child the same lessons; we give each adult the same job; we learn to grow old through the people we meet on the way out.

I can sit and wait for hours and watch hundreds of people walk by and I still won’t care about them. They are just seamlessly wandering around trying to get to the place they need to go. I find it interesting that some people won’t ever help a stranger as if you weren’t a stranger yourself!

I think I’ve discovered the secret of life — you just hang around until you get used to it. (Charles Schulz)
