Posted:A spider crossed the path I trod,
I, like God,
He, busy with the simple act of living
neither demanding nor giving
Why, I ask
should a spider be so much a spider
when i who have the intelligence
fail to know which way to go or the reason why.
We lose ourselves in a maze of learning,
while spider, with his load,
walks on straight road.

Posted:"In the dessert, I saw a creature
naked, bestial,
who, squatting upon the ground
held his heart in his hands and ate of it.
I said, 'Is it good friend?'
'It is bitter-bitter,' he replied.
'But I like it because it is bitter, and
because it is my heart.'"

* Stephen king

"May the butterflies of peace lend you their wings."

-Qcumba zoo



"They shall grow not old,

as we that are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them,

nor the years condemn.

And at the going down of the sun,

and in the morning,

we shall remember them."

-Laurence Binyon





"Just because somebody doesn't love you the way you want them to does not mean that they don't love you with all that they have.



Do not frown even when you are sad because you never know who may be falling inlove with your smile.



The worst way to miss someone, is to be sitting right beside them, knowing that you cannot have them.



Video games don't effect the youth of today.

I mean if pacman effected us,

we would all be running around dark rooms,

munching pills, and listening to repetative music."

-the above 4 are from an adaptation by J Botha



If you see an onion ring..... don't answer it.



"Little things used to mean so much to Shelly.

I used to think they were kind of trivial.

Believe me, nothing is trivial"

-Quote from The Crow



Don't hate yourself in the morning, sleep til noon!

all but few will cry
that while one can touch the sky
neither can fly
one through any gap will squeeze
while other on searching knees
will search for treasure
yet forego its own pleasure
and so of mice and men we may say
stupid and scurrying they will stay

Just to avoid lawsuits and so forth...


After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

Posted:"The most painful state of being is remembering the future, particularly one you can never have."
-Sren Kierkegaard

"Truth always rests with the minority, and the minority is always stronger than the majority, because the minority is generally formed by those who really have an opinion, while the strength of a majority is illusory, formed by the gangs who have no opinion--and who, therefore, in the next instant (when it is evident that the minority is the stronger) assume its opinion . . . while Truth again reverts to a new minority"
-Sren Kierkegaard

"Courage is not living without fear; this is ignorance. Courage is being afraid, being scared to death, and doing the right thing anyway" -not sure who said it, but is wasnt me.

"A single drop, though it may fall in the ocean, will yet cause a ripple"
-Margret Wies and Tracy Hickman (Deathgate cycle)

"Dont do what you cant undo, until you have thought about what you cant once you've done it"
-Robin Hobb.

And there was another one about holding on to something from the past..because something about never knowing if this is just a dream or about proving it was real....if anyone can find this quote for me I will be very happy!


.All things are beautiful if we take the time to look.
