“If we affirm one moment, we thus affirm not only ourselves but all existence. For nothing is self-sufficient, neither in us ourselves nor in things; and if our soul has trembled with happiness and sounded like a harp string just once, all eternity was needed to produce this one event – and in this single moment of affirmation all eternity was called good, redeemed, justified, and affirmed.” -Friedrich Nietzsche
“Let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.” -Khalil Gibran
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.” -Paul the Apostle in I Corinthians 13:1

Original blog intro:
You may know Glen as that guy from your school, dorm, church, or club. “Oh,” you say, “He’s a nice guy. And he’s smart. Not the most talkative or engaging person, but I don’t mind hanging out with him. He’s a chill guy.”
But beneath that stupid smile of his lies something deeper. Beneath that smile lies a conglomerate of thoughts, a curiosity to discover himself and the world around him.
To do so, he writes. Random things. Interesting things. Boring things. Words. Ideas. Whatever. And he hopes that by sharing his thoughts to the world (okay, let’s start with his friends and family), people will see Glen in a new light.
