'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
I guess that's me then. Thanks for clearing that up ;-)
"Take care, brethren, that there
not be in any one of you an evil,
unbelieving heart that falls away
from the living God.
But encourage one another
day after day, as long as it is still
called "Today" so that none of you
will be hardened by the deceitfulness
Hebrews 2 3:12-13
'For me, insanity is super sanity. The normal is psychotic. Normal means lack of imagination, lack of creativity.'
- Jean Dubuffet
"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)
a retired friend of mine recently gave her younger sister some sage advice for her upcoming job interview:
"don't use any big words; take a bath; and smile"
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.
'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".'
