When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will no peace - one of my favorites by Jimmy Hendrix


I graduated high school.
I have a job.
I don't have un protected sex
I have never stolen from someone
I have never been arested for a violent or disgusting crime.
I have never sold drugs
AND I smoke marijuana - Hunter S. Thompson
I have as much authority as the Pope, I just don't have as many people who believe it.
George Carlin

If it's true that our species is alone in the universe, then I'd have to say the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.


The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done

You know an odd feeling? Sitting on the toilet eating a chocolate candy bar.

Millions long for immortality who don't know
what to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Susan Ertz

==========

For what do we live, but to make
sport for our neighbours,
and laugh at them in our turn?''

spoken by Mr. Bennet in
"Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen

==========

For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all the horrors of the half known life.

"Moby Dick" by Herman Melville

==========

Resentment is like taking poison and
waiting for the other person to die.

DESIDERATA
Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
~ written by Max Ehrmann in the 1920s
