I am as frustrated with society as a pyromaniac in a petrified forest.
A. Whitney Brown

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

Old age, believe me, is a good and pleasant thing. It is true you are gently shouldered off the stage, but then you are given such a comfortable front stall as spectator.

There are 4 quotes by MLK Jr that I love:

I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.


Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.


Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.


Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

"The unquestioned life is not worth living."

-Aristotle

"Yesterday's moral philosophy becomes tomorrow's jurisprudence or welfare economic; yesterday's philosophy of mind becomes tomorrow's cognitive science"

-can't remember

Though clipped, this one too:

"The real starting point of all philosophy is self love, the effort to persist in one's own being. The longing not to die, as Spinoza said, is our essence and the affective basis of all knowledge . . . I am given reasons against immortality, but it is not with reasons that the heart is appeased. To live is not my right, but it is my necessity . . . I will not abdicate my life -- my life must be wrested from me."

- Miguel De Unamuno

I like to picture Jesus as a figure skater. He wears like a white outfit, and He does interpretive ice dances of my life's journey.

I liked the quote from Miguel De Unamuno.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
