    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

    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

"Look... Reality is greater than the sum of it's parts, also a damn site holier. And the lives of such stuff as dreams are made of may be rounded with a sleep but they are not tied neatly with a red bow. Truth doesn't run on time like a commuter train, though time may run on truth. And The Scenes Gone By an The Scenes To Come flow blending together in the sea-green deep while Now spreads in circles on the surface. So don't sweat it. For focus simply move a few inches back or forward. And once more...look" (That is pure zen folks. RIP Ken Kesey. Died 2001)

"There was self-inflicted turmoil, on the subject, at hand. In a if-then experience... does one relate upon a truth or a lie as a deduction. Still there's always a card in play---until its like the last throw in a pitch game. Still if and still then. What is to be seen is then unchangeable when, if then applies." -SAB

'We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won't do harm - yes, choose a place where you won't do very much harm, and stand in it for all you're worth, facing the sunshine.' - E. M. Forster

"look again at that dot. that's here. that's home. that's us. on it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was lived out their lives. the aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar", every "supreme leader", every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-- on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. :))))))))))) -carl sagan

"Early in the morning, today, the sun shonemagnificently through the rain-stained window-pane. The light upon my skin must have a small shadow of the rain it passed through to reach me in it. There was a cool in the warmth of it. I am this light now and it is me, like vitamins and the beach." -sherbear

'It is my considered opinion that the human race (soi disant) is cruel, idiotic, sentimental, predatory, ungrateful, ugly and egocentric to the last ditch and that the occasional discovery of an isolated exception is as deliciously surprising as finding a sudden brazil nut in what you know to be five pounds of vanilla creams. These glorious moments, although not making life actually worth living, perhaps, at least make it pleasanter.' - Noël Coward
