    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!

    It’s only after you give up trying to hold on to everything that you think will make you happy that you can truly be happy

    Touch her in all ways non physical... Give her intellectual orgasms in multiples and allow temptation to drip from her ears. Go down on her thoughts and taste her perception. Learn her soul and she will fill the void of your filthiest imaginations... Never start with the hands. -A.D. Woods

    Thomas Jefferson
    This is a list of axioms that Jefferson offered to a few friends late in his life. There is a lot of wisdom in them... 1. never put off to tomorrow what you can do to-day. 2. never trouble another with what you can do yourself 3. never spend your money before you have it 4. never buy a thing you do not want, because it is cheap, it will be dear to you. 5. take care of your cents: Dollars will take care of themselves! 6. pride costs us more than hunger, thirst and cold. 7. we never repent of having eat[en] too little. 8. nothing is troublesome that one does willingly. 9. how much pain have cost us the evils which have never happen d! 10. take things always by their smooth handle. 11. think as you please, & so let others, & you will have no disputes. 12. when angry, count 10. before you speak; if very angry, 100. Peace, -Dave

Is giving up the claim to "Truth" better than fighting for it?

Offering prayers 11 years after 9/11, realizing, by their very act of giving of up all claim to truth in the word, that they have found the key to defeat all that evil. (I think I just blew my mind!)

Realizing that offering prayers to counteract evil in the world as evidenced by 9/ll, (by their very action of praying for an end to such evil acts) is in itself the end of evil.

'The poets are supposed to liberate the words - not chain them in phrases. Who told the poets they were supposed to think? Poets are supposed to sing and to make words sing. Writers don't own their words. Since when do words belong to anybody? "Your very own words", indeed! And who are you?' - Brion Gysin

'The ability to soft-boil an egg is not regarded as a virtue in Spain. The more pervious a culture is to Surrealism, the less preoccupied it is with the least imaginative thing you can do with an egg. It's a post-Protestant talent to stand around for four minutes watching water precipitate gastronomic banality.' - Jonathan Meades
