All quotes from Alan Watts’

In reality there is no past and there is no future, there is just now.

Regard everything that you are doing as play, and don’t imagine for one minute that you’ve got to be serious about it.

There really is no necessity to go on living.

This is the real secret of life: to be completely engaged with what you’re doing in the here and now—and instead of calling it work, realize that this is play.

The whole continuation of the human race will be a drag—which is, in fact, what it’s become because of this attitude—and this is the reason why we’ve invented the atomic bomb and are preparing to commit suicide. Because… we think we must happen. And to the degree that we think we must happen, we hate it and are going to bring it to an end and stop it.
