US states I've been to
18. New York
20. North Carolina
21. South Carolina
26. New Jersey
31. New Hampshire
32. West Virginia
34. Rhode Island
States I've not been to
1. New Mexico
2. North Dakota
3. South Dakota
I guess I will have to visit the remaining ones at some point, just to complete the list. And why not complete the list of Canadian provinces as well, though Nunavut might be a bit challenging.
Though, next of the previously unvisited locations I was thinking I might visit India, Nepal, China, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Argentina, Chile, Yukon, Alaska, Hawaii and then perhaps Africa in some way. Brazil, Peru, Korea and Russia might be worth visiting at some point as well. Not necessarily in any particular order. Of these locations I'm thinking Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Yukon, Alaska and Hawaii might be decent enough to visit alone, but I'm thinking other location might be nicer to visit with some company.
Some Nietzsche quotes, just for the sport of it...
“I mistrust all systematizers and avoid them. the will to a system is a lack of integrity.”
"Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity."
"You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist."
"Faith: not wanting to know what the truth is."
"A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions--as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all."
"Today as always, men fall into two groups: slaves and free men. Whoever does not have two-thirds of his day for himself, is a slave, whatever he may be: a statesman, a businessman, an official, or a scholar."
"They muddy the water, to make it seem deep."
"Is life not a thousand times too short for us to bore ourselves?"
"I know of no better life purpose than to perish in attempting the great and the impossible."
"It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book."
"To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering."
"Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies."
"My solitude doesn’t depend on the presence or absence of people; on the contrary, I hate who steals my solitude without, in exchange, offering me true company."
"A thought comes when it will, not when I will."
"He who climbs upon the highest mountains laughs at all tragedies, real or imaginary."
"Many are stubborn in pursuit of the path they have chosen. Few in pursuit of the goal."
"One loves ultimately one's desires, not the thing desired."
"Most people are far too much occupied with themselves to be malicious."
"The vanity of others runs counter to our taste only when it runs counter to our vanity."
"Character is determined more by the lack of certain experiences than by those one has had."
"We would not let ourselves be burned to death for our opinions: we are not sure enough of them for that."
"Every word is a prejudice."
Sometimes it's almost scary how much I have in common with this guy.
