Fight Club

Tyler Durden:

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived.

I see all this potential, and I see squandering.

God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy s**t we don't need.

We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives.

We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very p**sed off."

This quote really speaks to me right now. I really feel this part of me not wanting to settle for a life not lived on the edge. A life not lived passionately for Jesus and not for me.
