To Be

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

To be.

Our lives are a collection of actions - to be born, to grow, to learn, to achieve, to become, to love, to teach, to give, to exist. Our body functions naturally on a list of "to do's": to breathe, to see, to smell, to taste, to hear. We were born with the instinct to do and to be. But the greater parts of doing and being are the adjectives and nouns that fit in between our actions. How did we do and how are we being? All of us will exist as long as our bodies continue to do the job it was created to do, but life is greater than simply existing. The ultimate goal of life is to have lived
