Alan Watts: All retch and no vomit
Wonderful short video clip sent to me by my wonderful wife by way of Nana, narrated by Alan Watts:
If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You will spend your time doing things you don't like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don't like doing, which is stupid!
What we are doing is we are bringing up children and educating them to live the same sort of lives we are living... in order that they may justify themselves and find satisfaction in life by bringing up their children to bring up their children to do the same things so it's all retch and no vomit — it never gets there.
