I have a favorite book that I find is full of wisdom.
“Children have a different convention of the fearful until they have been taught the proper things to be shocked at.”

“I'm quite sure there is a simple way. The trouble is that simple ways so often come out of such complicated research.”

“It’s not my fault if I’m not any good at things like that.” “I’ll differ there,” Coker told her. “It’s not only your fault—it’s a self-created fault. Moreover, it’s an affectation to consider yourself too spiritual to understand anything mechanical. It is a petty and a very silly form of vanity. Everyone starts by knowing nothing about anything, but God gives him—and even her—brains to find out with. Failure to use them is not a virtue to be praised;”

“When a day that you happen to know is Wednesday starts off by sounding like Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere.”

― John Wyndham, The Day of the Triffids

I was sworn to secrecy but learned this from my gramma when I was 7.

Beans, beans the musical fruit
The more you eat 'em the more ya' toot
The more ya toot the better ya feel
So eat beans at every meal

But the prize was: d'ere was a loyttle boyd soyttin' on the coyb of Foyst 'n Toyty-Toyd, oytin' woyms an' choypin' an' boypin'.

Gramma was fun.

We had a president with confused speeches, so we jokingly attributed a quote to him, saying:

"Life is like a Death,
except it's totally different."

I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown
which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments.

I hate the Morrison quote since it's the story of my social life I've been trying to uplift somehow.

I actually love quotes from this forum

"Insanity is just a situation." by barker
and
"seen a woman" by stormofwind

would be great to have a close circle of real, daily friends to mention these jokingly on a casual occasion.

My recent practical and also imagination opening favourite quote was probably coined by Toni Iomi as in a song written by him, Dio and Butler stating
"A story told, that can't be real
somehow must reflect the truth we feel."

Creativity's nice but I don't like how artists just abandon themselves into drugs as if only thing they achieve magically is just channelling some muses and other than that they just destroy their health.
It is a kind of sacrifice they made for us actually :D open the gates of creativity by the means of drugs we don't have to take because they did it.

A propos I like the Towelie quote from South Park
"You can't get stoned to solve problems,
you've got to solve problems first and only then get stones as a reward."

I hate South Park, it's that kind of speak that has created this society that doesn't concern themselves with what comes out of their mouths. I didn't allow my daughter to watch that show.
Now look at today...Lets give our children simulated war play, sure we had cops and robbers but not to the extent of virtual blood and gore. These poor children are being primed, and then we have a mass shooting and everyone wonders why. Free speech, yea, but where does one daw a line???

Unfortunately creative people are frequently drawn to self destruct through chemical abuse, I believe it's because they ride a find line between this world and the next, and living here is hard to take for them.

In comedy business you've got to fill the void with something so they become unnecessarily offensive, same with Bill Maher. He offers great insight into some core values though, just too offensive so as to fill the show. Boring now that he speaks about Trump incessantly, you've got to skip to new rules and some interviews maybe. I mentioned Asra Nomani here, she was in his show.

Yes you're right it shaped us into uttering rude words we like to say provided the speech's got at least some style in it. People don't like that sometimes.
Been fun though we've been 11-12yr old and watched that show and it kind of helped us to get a grasp on questioning the authorities and seeing how teachers were capable of being thoroughly retarded so as to not only blame ourselves for other people's sh*tes. There's been Ken Robinson speaking about how schools do slaughter creativity although the best part of South Park comes when you forget kids and begin to appreciate Randy March, the middle aged man addicted to porn with all the specifics of moderns relationships so insightfully narrated. Notable episodes would be the one where he got obsessed with the high class dish cooking or the one about Tiger Woods. Also tolerance camp was very accurate.

Smoking so as to reach inspiration?
Yes it reminds me of an experience of my own. It works. In my case though, not marijuana. Although that might be working too, but is it not making people too passive? There are some marijuana-influenced bands such as Stoned Jesus but one can't listen to it for too long.
Damn... sorry for mah bad English, dime is not a pipe I got mistaken.

"Today is "Zadushnica", child. Give me the wheat - we must boil it. An the eggs, and the cheese. Go get them from the cupboard. I'll start with the bread, we must prepare. It's a very important day. The day of those who have gone - day of their souls. And ours too. On this day, we must meet the souls of the ones we've lost. The soul is alive, child. Death is only a long sleep. People say "eternal sleep" and "rest" for a reason. A soul can do anything. It can move, it can fly and smell good food too. The soul likes the light, so we will light candles. The souls, child, they visit us and go back. They check on us, guide us, they are always around us. Remember - on a big sabbat, always leave food and water for the visitors. They have their own world and everyone has company, all souls. We must not grieve too long here on Earth. We must not cry, because we disturb the soul's dream and make it sad.
Don't be sad, child, if a soul is being forgotten, it can remind of itself. It can appear in a dream and speak even.
Come now, eat. Eat for the dead."

I don't know who wrote this, I just love it. Today is "Zadushnica" here, All Hallow's eve for the slavs. The veil is thin today.

Thank you it rocks.
February is by lore the last month. March is from Mars which rules Aries, the first sign. September October and so go Sept - 7 Octo - 8 ... January from twin faced Janus with rites of passage. February the last 12th with cleansing and purging and endings/completion? I don't really know it is a mysterious time.

Also now we have Saturday last day of the week with the thinnest veil.
Lunar cycle in about an hour and some minutes shifts from 29th lunar day to last 30th day of the cycle.
edit: also 22nd day of month referring to cycle of 22 sacred letters of Hebrew/Phoenician languages https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_o ... _alphabets hence the Major Arcana of Tarot consisting of 22

I saw this on Pinterest- “I love everybody. Some I love to be with, some I love to avoid and some I’d love to punch in the nose.”
