Maybe running in circles isn't something reserved for animals...maybe we're doing it on our own.
"If you put people on a racetrack, regardless of the context...if the gun goes off...they'll run.
I’ve seen people beaten down by life, to the point where mediocrity becomes their standard of living. Those are the people that become incapable of making history. We spend so much time trying to be extraordinary only to find out that we’re ordinary, and then we die.
Part of the whole “growing up” thing is to understand mortality and what you must do to be remembered. You only live forever in the things that you create, but what happens if you don’t create anything?
You’re forgotten. That’s what happens."
