It's perhaps just crass to appeal to the notion that we live on a cruel plant hurtling through the cosmos so very very alone blah blah blah, but on the other hand, this level of cognitive dissonance- it's disgusting how people think it's inspiring. To me, it's inspiring to believe that when bad things happen, we are not completely at the mercy of an agency outside of our own- that we still have the ability to do the right thing when wrong things happen.
I know someone that got this tattoo'd across his chest.
