You know what? So is everyone else.
That's how time works."

"There is no 7th Calvary coming to your rescue.
YOU are the 7th Calvary. YOU have to make it happen.
There is no one going to come and help you and it's
very, very important that you resist anything that's
going to take away your sovereignty."

"When there is space between you and the
object you are observing you will know there
is no love, and without love, however hard
you try to reform the world or bring about
a new social order or however much you talk
about improvements, you will only create agony.
So it is up to you. There is no leader, there is
no teacher, there is nobody to tell you what
to do. You are alone in this mad brutal world."

"So long as you believe in a two-faced God, you
will create ecstasy and terror side by side. You have imagined a God who is the epitome of both, and by
telling yourself that you are created in the Image
and Likeness of God, you have given yourself the
moral authority to demonstrate both. You love
and hate in the name of God."

Neal Donald Walsch

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty
Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright
force. Whenever you give up that force, you
are inevitably ruined."

Charles Baudelaire:

"Even when she walks one would believe that she dances."

"There are women who inspire you with the
desire to conquer them and to take your
pleasure of them, but this one fills you only
with the desire to die slowly beneath her gaze."

which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity,

hour of adversity."

A mink in her closet,
A Jaguar in her garage,

Re: "Quotables"

A living mind is a still mind

A living mind is a still mind, a living
mind is a mind that has no centre and
therefore no space and time. Such a
mind is limitless and that is the only
truth, that is the only reality.

Jiddu Krishnamurti
Freedom from the Known,109

The ending of noise is only a small beginning

That silence which is not the silence
of the ending of noise is only a small
beginning. It is like going through a
small hole to an enormous, wide,
expansive ocean, to an immeasurable,
timeless state. But this you cannot
understand verbally unless you have
understood the whole structure of
consciousness and the meaning of
pleasure, sorrow and despair, and the
brain cells themselves have become
quiet. Then perhaps you may come
upon that mystery which nobody can
reveal to you and nothing can destroy.
