Today is a unique and special day.
It is unlike any other day you have ever experienced.

If you practice keen awareness, you will get
to savor today's uniquely wonderful qualities.

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.
- Soren Kierkegaard

You can safely assume that you've
created God in your own image

one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein


 

My coat and I live comfortably together.
It has assumed all my wrinkles, does not hurt me anywhere,
has moulded itself on my deformities,

All life is an experiment.
The more experiments you make the better.

in the dirt once or twice.
Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.
