Posted:My religion consists of a humble admiration of the unlimitable superior who reveals Himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.

Posted:Oh Jello, you had to get me started!
When I took my (I love the name of this class) Oral Interpretation class, we had to keep a journal in which we collected quotes that moved or somehow struck a chord in us. I will find it and post them up...until then...

"It's hard to hear a whisper when hate is shouting in your ear."- Will Ryker, ST:TNG

"If in all the truths in the world you pick one and follow it blindly, it becomes a falsehood and you a fanatic."- Jack Marshak

"And with the power of conviction, there is no sacrifice."- Invincible: Pat Benetar

"There is no blinder man than a man with a mission."- Jack Marshak

Consciously or unconsciously, every one of us does render some service or other. If we cultivate the habit of doing this service deliberately, our desire for service will steadily grow stronger, and will make, not only our own happiness, but that of the world at large.
-- Gandhi

I like nonsense -- it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope...and that enables you to laugh at all of life's realities.
-- Theodor S. Geisel, a.k.a. "Dr. Seuss"

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
-- Douglas Adams

Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blue prints of your ultimate accomplishments.

Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. you only need a heart full of grace. a soul generated by love.

"The further I get from the things I care about, the less I care about how much further away I get." - Robert Smith, The Cure.

I like my sig quote too obviously.. oh and that Samuel Johnson one that Bender said somewhere... ummmm "Tis better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all, as it is better to be wronged than to wrong"... or something like that anyway.. (terrible memory..)

Uproot your questions from their ground and the dangling roots will be seen. More questions!
--Mentat Zensufi

Seek freedom and become captive of your desires. Seek discipline and find your liberty.
--The Coda

You cannot manipulate a marionette with only one string.
--The Zensunni Whip

Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class--whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy.
--Politics as Repeat Phenomenon: Bene Gesserit Training Manual

Laws to suppress tend to strengthen what they would prohibit. This is the fine point on which all the legal professions of history have based their job security.
--Bene Gesserit Coda

We tend to become like the worst in those we oppose.
--Bene Gesserit Coda

-Such a price the gods exact for song: to become what we sing
-Seek freedom and become captive of your desires. Seek discipline and find your liberty.

Posted:Proverbs of Hell
By William Blake

1 In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
2 Drive your cart and your plow over the bones of the dead.
3 The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.
4 Prudence is a rich, ugly old maid courted by Incapacity.
5 He who desires but acts not, breeds pestilence.
6 The cut worm forgives the plow.
7 Dip him in the river who loves water.
8 A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.
9 He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
10 Eternity is in love with the productions of time.
11 The busy bee has no time for sorrow.
12 The hours of folly are measur'd by the clock; but of wisdom, no clock can measure.
13 All wholesome food is caught without a net or a trap.
14 Bring out number, weight and measure in a year of dearth.
15 No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.
16 A dead body revenges not injuries.
17 The most sublime act is to set another before you.
18 If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise.
19 Folly is the cloak of knavery.
20 Shame is Pride's cloke.
21 Prisons are built with stones of law, brothels with bricks of religion.
22 The pride of the peacock is the glory of God.
23 The lust of the goat is the bounty of God.
24 The wrath of the lion is the wisdom of God.
25 The nakedness of woman is the work of God.
26 Excess of sorrow laughs. Excess of joy weeps.
27 The roaring of lions, the howling of wolves, the raging of the stormy sea, and the destructive sword, are portions of eternity, too great for the eye of man.
28 The fox condemns the trap, not himself.
29 Joys impregnate. Sorrows bring forth.
30 Let man wear the fell of the lion, woman the fleece of the sheep.
31 The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship.
32 The selfish, smiling fool, and the sullen, frowning fool shall be both thought wise, that they may be a rod.
33 What is now proved was once only imagin'd.
34 The rat, the mouse, the fox, the rabbit watch the roots; the lion, the tyger, the horse, the elephant watch the fruits.
35 The cistern contains: the fountain overflows.
36 One thought fills immensity.
37 Always be ready to speak your mind, and a base man will avoid you.
38 Every thing possible to be believ'd is an image of truth.
39 The eagle never lost so much time as when he submitted to learn of the crow.
40 The fox provides for himself, but God provides for the lion.
41 Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night.
42 He who has suffer'd you to impose on him, knows you.
43 As the plow follows words, so God rewards prayers.
44 The tygers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction.
45 Expect poison from the standing water.
46 You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.
47 Listen to the fool's reproach! it is a kingly title!
48 The eyes of fire, the nostrils of air, the mouth of water, the beard of earth.
