    Obviously before the reality of Islamism really hit home in the west.. Love and a certain faith never run parallel

    Despite me and Hicks having VERY different opinions on religion, All I gotta say is that this is one of the best quotes about life. Sometimes we forget that life is a ride and that whatever we're going through is just a part of ride and that all we gotta do is take our time, calm down and realize it's just a ride. We worry too much, we let things bother us that shouldn't. Sometimes things don't work out like we want them to, we get hurt, go through hard times, but at the end of the day, it's just a ride.

    "The world is like a ride at a amusement park and when you choose to go on it you think it's real – that's how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, "

    The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while.

    Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: 'Is this real? Or is this just a ride?' And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid — ever — because… this is just a ride.' And we kill those people.

    'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry; look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.' It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that — ever notice that? — and we let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because… it's just a ride, and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort. No worry. No job. No savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy bigger guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

    Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, into a better ride. Take all that money we spend on weapons and defense each year and, instead, spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would do many times over — not one human being excluded — and we can explore space together, both inner and outer, forever. In peace.

    Such a beautiful speech, though our world has alot to go through. Our government is obsessed with war and power.
