Favorite Quote:  “If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and

maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could

mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your

endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better

than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be

alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight

there is.” ― Charles Bukowski, Factotum

Seriously?

Can you tell an older male educated with a very limited worldview wrote this question? Why on earth do they automatically assume that everyone is familiar with their   concept of ‘heaven’, or ‘God’, or the ‘pearly gates’??!! Does no one look for greater meaning anymore than regurgitating outmoded force fed brainwashing dogmatical religious as long as you say you’re sorry at the end you’ll go to someplace better beliefs?

I do good now, and expect NOTHING in return; that is NOT how doing good works, you heathens.

See you in Hell!
