RE: TTA's Words of Wisdom.
I vaguely remember what my mother has been shouting every morning for the last few years.

I think it was something along the lines of "Wake up and get the fuck out of your bed; you've overslept again and are going to miss school".

Hm... Consider

Well in a few more years time you will be hearing your mum shout "Wake up and get the fuck out of your bed; you've overslept again and are going to be late for work" and as you peer at your alarm clock thinking of what pathetic excuse to give your boss you may think "You know bemore was right, fuck this work shit"

Cool

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

-Bemore.

Consider Hmm is right... I think we had the same Mother.


And for her I always had the same reply: just 5 more minutes ma - jus fife morzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Sleepy

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

RE: TTA's Words of Wisdom.
Amongst all the religious garble growing up, mom often recited this gem:

"Love many, trust few; always paddle your own canoe."

And I absolutely love this, I feel at peace after reading.


Quote:Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its shams, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

"Don't be afraid to look at that natural world as all that there is. the miracles, if I can call them that, of the material world, if looked with the most honest and curious eyes, far outweigh the supernatural in beauty, scale and rarity."

-Unknown

I thought this was beautiful so I thought it was worth sharing.

Everything good comes to an end.

Everything bad comes to an end.... only to be replaced by something even worse.

This gives me the warm fuzzies:
Quote:Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.
Avoid quiet and placid people, unless you are in need of sleep.
Rotate your tires.
Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself, and heed well their advice, even though they be turkeys.
Know what to kiss, and when.
Consider that two wrongs never make a right, but that three do.
Whenever possible, put people on hold.
Be comforted that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment, and and despite the changing fortunes of time, there is always a big future in computer mainteinance.

Remember the Pueblo. Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle and mutilate. Know yourself; if you need help, call the FBI.
Exercise caution in your daily affairs, especially with those persons closest to you—that lemon on your left, for instance.
Be assured that a walk through the ocean of most souls would scarcely get your feet wet.
Fall not in love therefore; it will stick to your face.
Gracefully surrender the things of youth—birds, clean air, tuna, Taiwan—and let not the sands of time get in your lunch.
Hire people with hooks. For a good time, call 606-4311... ask for Candy.
Take heart amid the deepening gloom that your dog is finally getting enough cheese;
and reflect that whatever misfortune may be your lot, it could only be worse in Milwaukee.

You are a fluke of the universe; you have no right to be here, and whether you can hear it or not, the Universe is laughing behind your back.
Therefore, make peace with your God, whatever you may perceive Him to be: hairy thunderer, or cosmic muffin.
With all its hopes, dreams, promises and urban renewal, the world continues to deteriorate.

Give up.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
