Day 24

I read Kant before I went to bed last night. I just read one paragraph, but it’ll do for now. I don’t want to read 15 pages a day anymore; if I don’t understand what the message is, what’s the point of reading? I can always write a story to laugh at myself when I failed to understand, so there is no reason not to try.

It just occurred to me that writing a good children’s story is very challenging. What do you want to explain to a child? How do you explain it to a child so s/he can understand and remember the message as time passes by? A children’s story is like any other story, but it’s more difficult to write one that inspires a reader to remember it in his/her subconscious for the rest of his/her life.

Perhaps the only way human beings can avoid self-destruction is through education, but no matter how much education one can receive, there is always a possibility that the weakness in human beings prevails. Choices are possible, but one’s responsibility comes with her ability to choose.

We can’t prevent something from going wrong because life is not logical. Everyone controls her/his own energy. To stay alive means to obtain energy, but at the same time to have the energy under control. Balance is the key and the question is how to balance, whereas the rest is up to us.
