"Man is something that must be overcome."

“To those human beings who are of any concern to me I wish suffering, desolation, sickness, ill-treatment, indignities - I wish that they should not remain unfamiliar with profound self-contempt, the torture of self-mistrust, the wretchedness of the vanquished: I have no pity for them, because I wish them the only thing that can prove today whether one is worth anything or not - that one endures."

I had a great time on the weekend in Sydney with Azita and Javid. Javid arrived, he can stay, there is nothing more to overcome. Azita has to overcome, she needs to stay, she doesn't ever want to go back. I am afraid I am too comfortable now ... I definitely need something to overcome. I wish I had been born in Iran, then I would have had to "overcome" all my life and I would certainly be a much greater person than I am now. The only way to overcome is to set myself obstacles. Perhaps I am slowly coming to the realisation that I should be in the US? But that is hardly a difficult goal for me... it would be too easy to get a job there. I am cursed to have had too comfortable a life! It is good that I understand both east and west though...

Oh yeah, dating non-Australian women has been more fun, there is more to overcome and so it is more rewarding in the end. Perhaps I should find someone really beautiful who is a moody bitch as well -- even more to overcome!!
