I’m not an pessimist...I’m an experienced optimist”
“It’s a secondhand world we’re born into. What is novel to us is only so because we’re newborn, and what we cannot see, that has come before- what our parents have seen and been and done- are the hand-me-downs we begin to wear as swaddling clothes, even as we ourselves are naked. The flaw runs through us, implicating us in its imperfection even as it separates us, delivers us onto opposite sides of a chasm. It is both terribly beautiful and terribly sad, but it is, finally, the fault in the universe that gives birth to us all.”
― Katherine Min, Secondhand World

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned, it’s that people are willing to embrace you if you share your story.” – Danny Glover
:roflmao: Bill Hicks on news reports:

"Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.
Here's Tom with the Weather."
I plan to remember those long gone in their undeniable youth. It is the one place where life was lived in eternal hope and joy was pure exhilaration. As well as it was replete with innocence and bereft of sadness. I will let those memories define them and take those smiles that I was lucky enough to share and embrace them for all time. - me (I hope that is allowed)
