“If there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.”

Albert Camus

“If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide. “

Mohandas Gandhi

Quote of the day …

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”

Dr. Seuss

Quote of the day …

Because I always feel like running
Not away, because there is no such place
Because, if there was I would have found it by now
Because it’s easier to run,
Easier than staying and finding out you’re the only one… who didn’t run
Because running will be the way your life and mine will be described
As in “the long run”
Or as in having given someone a “run for his money”
Or as in “running out of time”
Because running makes me look like everyone else,
Though I hope there will ever be cause for that
Because I will be running in the other direction,
Not running for cover
Because if I knew where cover was,
I would stay there and never have to run for it
Not running for my life,
Because I have to be running for something of more value
To be running and not in fear
Because the thing I fear cannot be escaped, eluded, avoided,
Hidden from, protected from, gotten away from,
Not without showing the fear as I see it now
Because closer, clearer, no sir, nearer
Because of you and because of that nice
That you quietly, quickly be causing
And because you’re going to see me run soon
And because you’re going to know why I’m running then
You’ll know then
Because I’m not going to tell you now.

“Running” – Gil Scott Heron

Quote of the day …

“Our lives today are not conducted in linear terms. They are much more quantified; a stream of random events is taking place”
