      "The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd. Indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible." - Bertrand Russell

      “Nothing is falser than people's preconceptions and ready-made opinions; nothing is sillier than their sham morality...” - Gaius Petronius Arbiter

          There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

            Vīta brevis, ars longa,
            occāsiō praeceps,
            experīmentum perīculōsum,
            iūdicium difficile.

            Life is short,
            and art long,
            opportunity fleeting,
            experimentations perilous,and judgment difficult.

              What would your good do if
              evil didn't exist, and what would the earth look like if all the shadows
              disappeared? After all, shadows are cast by things and people. Here is the
              shadow of my sword. But shadows also come from trees and living beings.
              Do you want to strip the earth of all trees and living things just because
              of your fantasy of enjoying naked light?
              -Mikhail Bulgakov

              When a person can allow darkness equal to light, he becomes internally and externally radiant.

                It's kinda like that scene from Lords of Dogtown:
                "So how's Tony?"
                "You know still fighting with the sun to be the center of the universe."

                "You possess everything you need right now to be happy and fulfilled. Happiness naturally awakens in you through a simple process of awareness. You see life differently because you are different. You see things you have never seen before. Beautiful things. You're much more energetic, much more alive. When you finally awake, you don't try to make good things happen; they just happen. You understand suddenly that everything that happens to you is good, and that all is well, even at times when things are a mess." - Anthony De Mello

                "All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark." - Swami Vivekananda

                    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time.

                    I've never gone to bed with an ugly chick, but I've woken up next to a few.

                      "The three most difficult things for a human being are not physical feats or intellectual achievements. They are, first, returning love for hate. Second, including the excluded. Third, admitting that you are wrong." - Unkown (i read it but don't know who came up with it)

                      "Think of the loneliness that is yours. Would human company ever take it away? It will only serve as a distraction. There's an emptiness inside, isn't there? And when the emptiness surfaces, what do you do? You run away, turn on the television, turn on the radio, read a book, search for human company, seek entertainment, seek distraction. Everybody does that. Its big business nowadays, an organized industry to distract us and entertain us." - Anthony DeMello

                        "If we can but prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy."

                          Fiction is one of the few experiences where loneliness can be both confronted and relieved. Drugs, movies where stuff blows up, loud parties -- all these chase away loneliness by making me forget my name's Dave and I live in a one-by-one box of bone no other party can penetrate or know. Fiction, poetry, music, really deep serious sex, and, in various ways, religion -- these are the places (for me) where loneliness is countenanced, stared down, transfigured, treated. - David Foster Wallace
