“Live!”

L Ron Hubbard portrait“There is only one way, really, to get into a state of living and that’s live!  There is no substitute for an all-out, over-the-ramparts, howling charge against life.  That’s living. Living does not consist of sitting in a temple in the shadows and getting rheumatism from the cold stones.  Living is hot, it’s fast, it’s often brutal!  It has a terrific gamut of emotional reactions.

“If you are really willing to live, you first have to be willing to do anything that consists of living.”
