    Henry Rollins once said that pain is “probably the only thing that is your own.” I see myself as a block of stone standing resolute in the chaotic river of life that swirls around me. I’ve used pain, loss and anger to chisel out a form from the uncarved block I started with. I’m left with a sturdy structure, but, one with sharp edges and just as likely to roll over and ...[text shortened]... shonest and fragile inventions. Better to be carved out of stone with a chisel honed sharp by pain.
    Get off your high horse.

    Everyone knows that the king of pain is Sting.

    I'm not quite sure I agree with this, but it is something to think about. Emergent strategies at least, adopted by some or many to deal with the biological horrors and mental contretemps of life. Fragile, yes. Not necessarily dishonest in all cases.
    Humans lie to themselves more than anyone else. Perhaps it’s not intellectually dishonest to believe that family will always be there for you, that there’s a higher purpose in life and that God or Gods guide your path. However these things all amount to adult security blankets. Life is not all candy and rainbows. It’s sharp edges and uncertainty.

    Upon your death, mired in the muck of ignorance, you’ll leave a legacy of idiocy behind you. I’ll take my chances in the pool of knowledge.
