..........Thought for the day:



Lifes' journey is not to arrive safely at the grave

in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in

sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy Shit, what

a ride.."

I AM NOT THERE

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there. I did not die.

-Robert Hepburn (In Memory of Norbert C. Gessner)

"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
-Theodore Roosevelt, "Citizen in a Republic", April 23, 1910

Oscar Wilde is one of the wittiest human beings that ever lived. The problem with quoting him is that there are so many great ones to choose from (several years worth if you limit it to one a day). Here's a sampling:

Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.

America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between.

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

I am not young enough to know everything.

I think that God in creating Man somewhat overestimated his ability.

One can survive everything, nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation.

Work is the curse of the drinking classes.

Scandal is gossip made tedious by morality.

To get back my youth I would do anything in the world, except take exercise, get up early, or be respectable.

Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.

Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about.
