Quote from Bill Hicks:
There is a point, is there a point to all of this? Let's find a point. Is there a point to my act? I would say there is. I have to. The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think that it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. [Audience member shouts 'bollocks'] There is a lot denial in this ride, the ride, in fact, is made up of denial "All things work in Goatboys favour". The world is like a ride at an amusement park. It goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride..." And we... kill those people. Ha ha "Shut him up." "We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real." Just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. Jesus mudered; Martin Luther King mudered; Malcolm X murdered; Gandhi murdered; John Lennon murdered; Reagan.... wounded. But it doesn't matter because: It's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love.

The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defences each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.
Hope you don't mind my copy and paste.

Do you take this opinion for your own?

Is the world (for me: life) like a ride?

I think the most of people stand between imagination life like a ride and deadpan thing.
So... for everyone a ride means something else.
It can be a roller coaster or only casual go-kart ride.
Anyway, a ride without bank account , without close friends is not so easy and simple.

But, it is not true, that money, family and generally stability give full of happiness.
Inside the heart, inside the soul is a strong feeling, that must be something more...
I think it has to be finding without ceaselessly.
Unfortunately, the most of people resign or never feel this missing.
All of us have only one chance to live here and the live should be so great as it possible.

I like Bill Hicks, however, he had some kind of hysteria underneath his comism. It wasn`t 100% healthy. But I liked his philosophy, he had some deep thoughts, it wasn`t just for laughs.

I strongly advocate to check out comedy of Louis CK.

If somebody has time and want to think about something abstract:

There are at least two kinds of games. One could be called finite, the other infinite. A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play.
The rules of a finite game may not change; the rules of an infinite game must change.
Finite players play within boundaries; infinite players play with boundaries.
Finite players are serious; infinite players are playful.
Finite players win titles; infinite players have nothing but their names.
A finite player plays to be powerful; an infinite player plays with strength.
A finite player consumes time; an infinite player generates time.
The finite player aims to win eternal life; the infinite player aims for eternal birth.

-James Carse

And what kind of player are YOU?

Sometimes, its better to enjoy all life's journey, than to expect prize, on the end.
