More William Blake:

I care not whether a man is Good or Evil.
All that I care is whether he is a wise man or a fool.
Go, put off Holiness and put on Intellect.

"The human mind is so complex and things are so tangled up with each other that, to explain a blade of straw, one would have to take to pieces an entire universe... A definition is a sack of flour compressed into a thimble.”

May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibilities.
~ Mary Anne Redmacher ~

Sometimes you have to take a great leap and build your wings on the way down

Success is never final. Failure is never fatal. It is the courage that counts

Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest

Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach the stars

I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning to sail my ship

If there is no passion in your life, then have you really lived? Find your passion, whatever it may be. Become it, and let it become you and you will find great things happen FOR you, TO you and BECAUSE of you.

The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names.

Explanation: You can't think more clearly than you are able to correctly describe the things you have to refer to. Example of confusion: "War on terror." Fact: Terror is an emotion, not a thing or person or state. It's insane to call out the military to deal with an emotion.

Who originated that quotation (above)? I don't know, but it sounds like Lao Tse.
