“Don’t attend your own funeral as a guy named Phil Shiftly.” Great commercial. The primary point seems to be BOREDOM, doesn’t it?
Boredom is a great problem in our over-saturated, technology-addicted culture.
“I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored.”
― Louis C.K.
“Is life not a thousand times too short for us to bore ourselves?”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
“The Beatles saved the world from boredom.” ― George Harrison
“I am never bored; to be bored is an insult to one’s self.”
― Jules Renard
“… millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.”
― Susan Ertz
“I don’t believe in an afterlife, so I don’t have to spend my whole life fearing hell, or fearing heaven even more. For whatever the tortures of hell, I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse.”
― Isaac Asimov
