Sometimes you come across a quote, a line, a statement that just nails it, at some level. Cosmic, comic, whatever.

If you'd like to share it, post it here, duly credited!

Basic Human Needs

Wouldn't it be neat
If the people you meet
Had shoes upon their feet
And something to eat?
And wouldn't it be fine now,
If all human kind had shelter?

And wouldn't it be grand
If we all lent a hand
So each one could stand
On a free piece of land.

And wouldn't it be thrilling
If folks stopped their killing
And started in tilling the land.

Basic human needs,
Basic human deeds,
Doing what comes naturally.
Down in the garden,
Where no one is apart,
Deep down in the garden,
The garden of your heart.

And wouldn't it be daring
If folks started sharing,
Instead of comparing,
What each other Was wearing?

And wouldn't it be swell
If people didn't sell they're mother...
Earth.

Basic human needs,
Basic human deeds,
Doing what comes naturally.
Down in the garden,
Where no one is apart
Deep down in the garden
The garden of your heart.

Not just churches
Not just steeples.
Jive me peoples
Helping peoples

Step On The Velocity

"Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws of perspective, an eye unprejudiced by compositional logic, an eye which does not respond to the name of everything but which must know each object encountered in life through an adventure of perception. How many colors are there in a field of grass to the crawling baby unaware of 'Green'? How many rainbows can light create for the untutored eye? How aware of variations in heat waves can that eye be? Imagine a world alive with incomprehensible objects and shimmering with an endless variety of movement and innumerable gradations of color. Imagine a world before the 'beginning was the word'."

Another Glass Of Water Does Not Exist

"I'm no longer a child and I still want to be, to live with the pirates. Because I want to live forever in wonder. The difference between me as a child and me as an adult is this and only this: when I was a child I longed to travel into, to live in wonder. Now I know, as much as I can know anything, that to travel into wonder is to be wonder. So it matters little whether I travel by plane, by rowboat, or by book. Or by dream. I do not see, for there is no I to see. That is what the pirates know. There is only seeing, and in order to go to see, one must be a pirate."

Specially one don't check his facts.
