    I was reading a book of quotes and became inspired. My favorite was:

    "If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?"


    How about you guys?

    A quote attributed to Kurt Vonnegut, I think it was from one of his books. Taken with a grain of salt, it does make you think. "If you can do a half-assed job of anything, you're a one-eyed man in the kingdom of the blind". Specifically, it makes me think of the bosses at my job! icon_rolleyes.gificon_exclaim.gificon_eek.gif

    I'm really being a nerd here, but I was watching the 12 Kingdom anime series when the main character retorts to one of the characters:

    "Before one can be old and wise, they must first be young and dumb."

    From an Oklahoma newspaper in 1909, a printed passage read:

    "Young man, as you perambulate down the pathway of life toward an unavoidable bald head bordered with gray hairs it would be well to bear in mind that the cemeteries are full of men this world could not get along without, and note the fact that things move along after each funeral procession at about the same gait they went before. It makes no difference how important you may be, don’t get the idea under your hat that this world can’t get along without you." —Abilene Reporter.

    One thing begets the next. A man has a weakness, he's flawed. That flaw leads him to guilt. The guilt leads him to shame. The shame he compensates with pride and vanity. And when pride fails, despair takes over and they all lead to his destruction. It will become his fate... Something's gotta stop the flow
    ~From the movie Ink

    or maybe there's no obligation now"

    since I met you, my life is better than any ABBA song.
    Even Dancing Queen."

    “Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth”
    ― Pema Chödrön

    "The only reason we don't open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don't feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else's eyes."
    ― Pema Chödrön
