Quote by Junior Seau
As I was coming up, it always seemed like I was learning. If it wasn't from school, it was the 'hood. The influences of the 'hood are very powerful.
This quote highlights the formative experiences and sources of education for the speaker during their upbringing. It suggests that while formal schooling was certainly a factor, the influential role of their neighborhood and surrounding environment cannot be underestimated. The quote underscores the power and impact of the 'hood in shaping the speaker's knowledge and perspective, highlighting how learning can occur not only through traditional educational channels but also through the unique dynamics of their community and the challenges they faced growing up.
I am beginning to see that all my troubles have their root in a habitual and absolute dependence upon my personal prestige, security, and romantic attachment. When these things go wrong, there is depression. Now this absolute dependence upon people and situations for emotional security is, I think, the immense and devastating fallacy that makes us miserable. This craving for such dependencies, this utter dependence upon people and situations, can only lead to conflict. Both on the surface and at depth. We are making demands on circumstances and people that are bound to fail us. The only safe and sure channel of absolute dependence is upon God himself.
I love being on stage if I'm not on a set. If I'm at home, I'm usually in my office editing or reconstructing my website or whatever it may be. I just love putting creativity into a performance, so if the right script comes along, and I certainly am reading comedies and dramas now, then I'm ready willing and able to give it a shot.
