I know it's not a Grateful Dead quote,
but this one works for me:
"You can't always get what you want.
But if you try sometimes,
You just might find
You get what you need."
--The Rolling Stones

Catch-22 should be required reading for everyone.

Open your eyes, Clevinger. It doesn't make a damned bit of difference who wins the war to someone who's dead.

my favorite quote

Argument closes off the door to the senses. It always masks violence. Continued too long, argument leads to violence. I have no violent intentions toward you.

the late, great HST

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."

It used to be framed on the wall of my office when I worked for the Clamshell Alliance against the Seabrook nuclear power plant on the seacoast of NH.

It wasn't a bad credo to have on tour, either.
