Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction. -Picasso

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. -Crowfoot

A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything. -Nietzsche

It is nice, in getting mature enough to see the things you really don't have to want to do any more, certain options fade drop away and we are left with our focus.

A great comeback to any theory
"There are a lot of assumptions in that deduction."

Being out of context, I reckon.
When I want believe in any thing, then I may have to need to believe something-this or something-else. The world as a reaction.
A cabinet will fall if it is top-heavy, whether you believe it will or not.
I no not have to believe in physics, of course.
Physics, it is nothing personal.

I am the reaction, too.

Pay attention, pay attention, pay attention.

  4. I like Subby's response.

    Nietzche's quote probably is out of context but, taken as it is, leaves me thinking we should all get out the knife, slit our wrists, and end it here and now.

    Jeez.

  9. I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. -Nietzsche (#7 Zarathustra)

    Will not a "lunatic" believe based on his own perception of reality? I’m not so sure it’s wise to believe that our perception is much better.
    It is a ponder.

    Pass the salt shaker....

  12. I always liked Stanislaus' approach better, anyway...

    quothe he~"To make good use of life, one should have in youth the experience of advanced years, and in old age the vigour of youth."

    Well...I still act like a kid ;)

  13. I sometimes wonder whether getting older (or more mature) is nothing more than an acceptance of the need to prioritize - in believes as well as actions.

  14. More and more I find that as I watch in open gratitude, the signs emerge. The most amazing surprises fall from the blue and when the gifts are more wonderful than I could have imagined, I know that they are absolutely Grace.
