I have this awesome pen that disassembles itself when I take the cap off. It is actually not very awesome.

“The civilized man does not know what he wants.
 
He works for success, fame, a happy marriage, fun, to help other people, or to be a ‘real person’.
 
But these are not real wants because they are not actual things. They are the by-products, the flavors and atmospheres of real things–shadows which have no existence apart from some substance.
 
[It is a matter] of confusing measurements with reality.”
 
— Alan Watts
