Begin at the beginning … and go on till you come to the end: then stop. Lewis Carroll

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.

“When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it’s not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.”

Now don’t say you can’t swear off drinking; it’s easy. I’ve done it a thousand times.
W.C. Fields

Never use a big word when a little filthy one will do.
Johnny Carson

If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong.
Anonymous

What is the definition of “is”?

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love. Einsein

itsonlythewind

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living but not a life. We’ve added years to life, not life to years. — (via kari-shma)

I think it’s the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately.
George Carlin

The absence of alternatives clears the mind marvelously.
Henry Kissinger

An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.
Niels Bohr

Just be who you are, wait your turn, don’t push. Be beautiful, be graceful. If you’re going to get angry, be angry behind closed doors. Don’t ever let them see you sweat. Just hold your head up no matter what, and don’t ever let anyone stomp you out.

THREE PROOFS THAT JESUS WAS A WOMAN
He had to feed a crowd, at a moment’s notice, when there was no food.
He kept trying to get the message across to a bunch of men who just didn’t get it.
Even when he was dead, he had to get up because there was more work to do.

“The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.”
—U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, 1928

Daily Thought: Some people are like slinkies – not really good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs .

What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things. — unknown

Quotes

“It is an interesting and demonstrable fact, that all children are atheists and were religion not inculcated into their minds, they would remain so.” ~ Ernestine Rose

“To surrender to ignorance and call it God has always been premature, and it remains premature today.”~ Isaac Asimov

“Toleration is not the opposite of intolerance but the counterfeit of it. Both are despotisms: the one assumes to itself the right of withholding liberty of conscience, the other of granting it.” ~ Thomas Paine

“Faith is a cop-out. It is intellectual bankruptcy. If the only way you can accept an assertion is by faith, then you are conceding that it can’t be taken on its own merits.” ~ Dan Barker

“Good people will do good things, and bad people will do bad things. But for good people to do bad things – that takes religion.”  ~ Steve Weinberg

“If we believe absurdities, we shall commit atrocities.” ~ Voltaire

“In science it often happens that scientists say, “You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,”  and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.”  ~ Carl Sagan

“The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.”  ~ Thomas Paine

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.” ~ Harvey Fierstein

“And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in all the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. ” ~ John Steinbeck

“As human beings, we are endowed with freedom of choice, and we cannot shuffle off our responsibility upon the shoulders of God or nature. We must shoulder it ourselves. It is our responsibility.” ~ Arnold J. Toynbee

“Those who cling to the untrue doctrine that violence never settles anything would be advised to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and of the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.” ~ Robert A. Heinlein

Live ur life in such a way that when ur feet hit the floor in the morning Satan shudders and says “Oh shit she’s awake!”

Bluto quote

—”Dead! Bluto’s right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part

The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing… not healing, not curing… that is a friend who cares.

“I must create a system, or be enslaved by another man’s.”
– William Blake

“Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world. Unreasonable people attempt to
adapt the world to themselves. All progress, therefore, depends on unreasonable people.”
– George Bernard Shaw

“We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.”
– C. G. Jung

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
– Albert Einstein

“Now Christianity sounded good at first to the naive convert. Love, peace and charity –
what’s wrong with that? I’ll tell you what’s wrong – a series of unprecedented
horrors perpetrated by so-called Christians: The Inquisition, the Conquistadores,
the American Indian wars, slavery, Hiroshima and the present-day Bible Belt.”
– William S. Burroughs

“Science and magick are frequently different maps for very similar territory. Following the path of least resistance, science ignores magick’s hard-to-travel path. Magick uses myth and science uses ambiguous terminology: semantically, both say the same thing. Each principle is expressed as ‘An unknown something is doing we don’t know what’. Each law is a variation of ‘It did it again'”
– Camden Benares, Zen without Zen Masters.

Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.
– Sir Arthur Eddington

“I would rather live in prison in a George Orwellian world, than a pacified society of happy boys and girls. I would rather know my enemy and let you know the same, who’s windows were smashed and who’s tires were slashed. And where to point the fucking blame”
– Propagandhi

“Nothing is given to man on earth except a potential and the material on which to actualize it. The potential is a superlative machine: his consciousness; but it is a machine without a spark plug, a machine of which his own will has to be the spark plug, the self-starter and the driver; he has to discover how to use it and he has to keep it in constant action. The material is the whole of the universe, with no limits set to the knowledge he can acquire and to the enjoyment of life he can achieve. But everything he needs or desires has to be learned, discovered and produced by him – by his own choice, by his own effort, by his own mind.”
– Ayn Rand, The Virtue of Selfishness

“A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what’s going on.”
– William Burroughs

“It is a little known fact the the so-called “Law of Gravity” was actually one of Sir Isaac “shecky” Newton’s best practical jokes, and it was such a wonderful knee-slapper that generations of teachers have devoted themselves to keeping the hoax alive. In truth, there is no such thing as “gravity.” Rather, the Great Earth Goddess sucks.”
– Bruce Bethke, Headcrash

“The media of sameness and separation represent the world in its most religious form – the structuring of the social in images.”
– Hakim Bey (Millennium, pg 38)

“So I am public agent and don’t know who I work for, get my instructions from street signs, newspapers and pieces of conversation I snap out of the air the way a vulture will tear entrails from other mouth.”
– William Burroughs( The Soft Machine ,Ch. 3 ,Pg 18)

I ask you to look both ways. For the road to a knowledge of the stars leads through the atom; and important knowledge of the atom has been reached through the stars.
– Sir Arthur Eddington

“Politics offer yesterday’s answers to today’s questions”
M. McLuhan

‘Doubt.
Doubt thyself.
Doubt even if thou Doubtest yourself.
Doubt all.
Doubt even if thou Doubtest all.
It seems sometimes as if beneath all conscious doubt there lay some deepest certainty.
O kill it! Slay the snake!’
– Crowley,(The Book of Lies ,Ch. 51)

“Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.”
Oscar Wilde

“The family circle has widened. The worldpool of information fathered by electric media-movies, Telstar, flight-far surpasses any possible influence mom and dad can now bring to bear. Character no longer is shaped by only two earnest, fumbling experts. Now all the world’s a sage”
Marshall Mcluhan (The Medium is the Massage)

“There are very few people today who have heard of Plato and Aristotle. Not one in a thousand, perhaps ten thousand, of those few have ever read either of them, even in translations. But there are also very few people whose thinking, such as it is, is not conditioned by the ideas of those two men.”
– Crowley(The Book of Thoth, pg 33)

”Love, work and knowledge are the wellsprings of our life. They should also govern it.’
– Wilhelm Reich

“Perhaps much of what is taken to be real is mainly determined by thought. Perhaps the appearance of the physical world is magickal because the orderly processes of science fail to take the observer into account. The order of the universe may be the order of our own minds.”
– Fred Alan Wolf (in Taking the Quantum Leap)

“Only through absolute loyalty to each other can the few control the many.”
– Peter J. Carroll (in PsyberMagick)

“There is no law except the law that there is no law”
– John A. Wheeler

“Is Man one of God’s blunders, or is God one of Man’s blunders?”
– Nietzsche

“Any sufficiently advanced form of magick will appear indistinguishable from science.”
– Stokastikos’s Law

“If only one fifth of your spells work you have real power. If only one fifth of your divinations work you have a serious disability.”
– Peter J. Carroll (in PsyberMagick)

“Everything is true-Everything is permissible!”
– Hassan i Sabbah

“…Every jumbled pile of person has a thinking part that wonders what the part
that isn’t thinking isn’t thinking of…”
– They Might Be Giants

“Magick will not free itself from occultism until we have strangled the last astrologer with the guts of the last spiritual master.”
– Peter J. Carroll (in PsyberMagick)

“I am chaos. I am the substance from which your artists and scientists build rhythms. I am the spirit with which your children and clowns laugh in happy anarchy. I am chaos. I am alive, and I tell you that you are free.”
– Eris (in Principia Discordia)

One of the annoying things about believing in free will and individual responsibility is the difficulty of finding somebody to blame your problems on. And when you do find somebody, it’s remarkable how often his picture turns up on your driver’s license.” ~ P. J. O’Rourke

One of my favorite quotes is by Judge Judy, “Beauty is temporary … stupid is forever.” It may be a bit blunt but it’s right to the point.

“ “More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.” ”

They came for the Communists, and I didn’t object For I wasn’t a Communist;
They came for the Socialists, and I didn’t object – For I wasn’t a Socialist;

They came for the Jews, and I didn’t object – For I wasn’t a Jew;
Then they came for me – And there was no one left to object.”
