Distraction

 

“If you’re born with a gift, to behave like its an achievement is not right. It’s just an accident that we happen to be on earth, enjoying our silly little moment, distracting ourselves as often as possible, so we don’t have to really face up to the fact that, you know, we’re just temporary people with very short time in a universe that will eventually be compeletely gone. And everything that you value, whether it’s Shakespeare, Beethoven, da Vinci, or whatever will be gone. The earth will be gone. The sun will be gone. There will be nothing. The best you can do to get through life distraction. Love works as a distraction. And work works as a distraction. You can distract yourself a billion different ways. But the key is to distract yourself.” – Woody Allen, Irrational Man
