    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

'It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto non-existent blindingly obvious. The cry "I could have thought of that" is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is they didn't, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too.' - Dirk Gently

'Civilised life, you know, is based on a huge number of illusions in which we all collaborate willingly. The trouble is we forget after a while that they are illusions and we are deeply shocked when reality is torn down around us.' - J.G. Ballard

'Quietism, Buddhism, Christianity, and other religions, everything which denies the flesh - is the great inferiority to God in ourselves, an escapism seeking sanctuary through fear of life and inability to accept 'this reality'. They were hurt? Or was the odalisque unsatisfactory or too expensive? They expected too much for too little, or were too mean to pay - therefore: "All is illusion". But the stoic smilingly awaits the next shower of shit from heaven. Stoics are not Saviours, Saints or Heroes and are often confused and weary, yet they prefer to find their own way and to accept life as they find it. The schizophrenics, the melancholics and psychotics - they at least are secretive and inflict no religion on others. They prove the possibilities and utilities of 'as if' when totally accepted.' - Austin Osman Spare

'I saw an advertisement the other day for the secret of life. It said "The secret of life can be yours for twenty-five shillings. Send to Secret of Life Institute, Willesden". So i wrote away, seemed a good bargain, secret of life, twenty-five shillings. And i got a letter back saying, "If you think you can get the secret of life for twenty-five shillings, you don't deserve to have it. Send fifty shillings for the secret of life".' - E.L. Wisty

1.When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong. 2.The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible. 3.Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. I rely on the third law way too much for comfort these days.

"Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not provoked, taketh not account of evil; rejoiceth not in unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Love never faileth" – 1 Corinthinans 13 (American Standard Version)

'The slow-witted approach to the HIV epidemic was the result of a thousand years of Christian malpractice and the childlike approach of the church to sexuality. If any single man was responsible, it was Augustine of Hippo who murdered his way to sainthood spouting on about the sins located in his genitals.' - Derek Jarman

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

"act of God" since 1635 AD "Courts have recognized various events as acts of God—tornadoes, earthquakes, death, extraordinarily high tides, violent winds, and floods.

That I was channel-surfing last weekend and ran into Ferris Bueller's Day Off just in time to hear one of Ferris's monologues that dovetails with your Lennon quote... "I do have a test today. That wasn't bullshit. It's on European socialism. I mean, really, what's the point? I'm not European. I don't plan on being European. So who gives a crap if they're socialists? They could be fascist anarchists. It still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car. Not that I condone fascism, or any "ism" for that matter. "Isms" in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an "ism", he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon: "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me." Good point there. After all, he was the Walrus. I could be the Walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off of people."

"What then is truth? A movable host of metaphors, metonymies, and; anthropomorphisms: in short, a sum of human relations which have been poetically and rhetorically intensified, transferred, and embellished, and which, after long usage, seem to a people to be fixed, canonical, and binding. Truths are illusions which we have forgotten are illusions- they are metaphors that have become worn out and have been drained of sensuous force, coins which have lost their embossing and are now considered as metal and no longer as coins." – Friedrich Nietzsche
