“I like how since the 2010’s people are acting like women just came into existance and are this brand new thing that need to be protected”

“That might be the dumbest thing I’ve read in my entire life but okay.”

“Why does /v/ hate girl gamers so much? Is their any solid scientific evidence that they’re not good at games or are only in it for the attention?”

“The fact that they need a new term (“girl gamer”) even though there’s already a valid term for them (gamer) speaks volumes.”

“Most of calories people are eating, they don’t come from food directly. They come from food products. They are essentially caloric substances like sugar, like vegetable oils, starches. These products have energy density twice as high as whole foods. Of course we can eat food products. We can eat biscuits, or chocolate, or ice cream, of course we can. And we did this for many years. But this was just a compliment of a diet that was based on whole foods. Today it’s the reverse.”

“Actually [life expectancy increase has] stalled and this generation is expected to die younger than their parents. Especially in developing countries that are genetically vulnerable to diabetes and heart disease at young ages.”

“The point is the doing of them rather than the accomplishments. There is no actor but the action; there is no experiencer but the experience.”

“The perfect way is only difficult for those who pick and choose. Do not like, do not dislike; all will then be clear. Make a hairbreadth difference and heaven and earth are set apart; if you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against. The struggle between “for and “against” is the mind’s worst disease.”

“Can you look at a situation without naming it? Naming it, making it a word, causes fear.”

“It is indeed difficult to see the situation simply – our minds are very complex – and it is easy to teach one to be skillful, but it is difficult to teach him his own attitude.”

“The greatest mistake is to anticipate the outcome of the engagement; you ought not to be thinking of whether it ends in victory or defeat. Let nature take its course, and your tools will strike at the right moment.”

“Simplicity is the shortest distance between two points.”

“While being trained, the student is to be active and dynamic in every way. But in actual combat, his mind must be calm and not at all disturbed. He must feel as if nothing critical is happening. When he advances, his steps should be light and secure, his eyes not fixed and glaring insanely at the enemy. His behavior should not be in any way different from his everyday behavior. no change taking place in his expression, nothing betraying the fact that he is engaged in mortal combat.”

“Empty your cup so that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality.”

“The man who is clear and simple does not choose. What is, is. Action based on an idea is obviously the action of choice and such action is not liberating. On the contrary, it creates further resistance, further conflict. Assume pliable awareness.”

“Forms are vain repetitions which offer an orderly and beautiful escape from self-knowledge with an alive opponent.”
