Quote of the day…

My God’s Better Than Your God

My god’s better than your god,
My special book tells me so,
It tells me how to think, who to love,
And how my life should go.

My god’s better than your god,
He waits only for me,
Your name’s not on his list,
You are my enemy.

My god’s better than your god,
His book is filled with truth,
Your book’s all wrong you see,
I have all the proof.

My god’s better than your god,
His ways are just and right,
His laws are like a roadmap,
That guide me to the light.

My god’s better than your god,
Yours is weird and wrong,
I have never heard of him,
And he’s been around too long.

My god’s better than your god,
He’s all shiny and real,
Your god belongs in hell,
He’s not the real deal.

My god’s better than your god,
Cause he’s without sin,
You’re a heathen non-believer,
Not good enough for him.

My god’s better than your god,
Yours has a silly name,
And your book is stupid,
Really dumb and lame.

I will go to heaven,
Cause I’m better than you,
I can do anything,
I’m amongst the chosen few…
…Cause my god’s better than your god,
You have to say its true,
Cause if you don’t,
My god will come,
And make you suffer till you do.

Quote of the day…

“I could not become anything; neither good nor bad; neither a scoundrel nor an honest man; neither a hero nor an insect.

— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Nothing is more humiliating than to see idiots succeed in enterprises we have failed in.”

Quote of the day…

“It’s the fault of course, of our philosophy of life; and our philosophy is the inevitable byproduct of a language that separates in idea what in actual fact is always inseparable. It separates and at the same time it evaluates. One of the abstractions is ‘good,’ and the other is ‘bad.’ Judge not that ye be judged. But the nature of language is such that we can’t help judging. What we need is another set of words. Words that can express the natural togetherness of things. Muco-spiritual, for example, or dermatocharity. Or why not mastonoetic? But translated, of course, out of the indecent obscurity of a learned language into something you could use in everyday speech or even in lyrical poetry. How hard it is, without those still non-existent words, to discuss even so simple and obvious a case as Ruth’s! The best one can do is to flounder about in metaphors.”

Aldous Huxley

Quote of the day…

“The men of old knew that life comes without warning, and as
suddenly goes. They denied none of their natural inclinations, and
repressed none of their bodily desires. They never felt the spur
of fame. They sauntered through life gathering its pleasures as
the impulse moved them. Since they cared nothing for fame after
death, they were beyond the law. For name and praise, sooner or
later, a long life or short one, they cared not at all.”

– Lao Tzu
