Wow. You certainly get your money's worth with that one. Some wonderful, if mystical, imagery.

These books are definitely treasures. I love them.

I don't know where I ran across this one or who said it.

"Today is unique! It has never occurred before and it will never be repeated. At midnight it will end, quickly, suddenly, totally. Forever. But the hours between now and then are opportunities with eternal possibilities."

Dorothy: How can you talk if you haven't got a brain?
Scarecrow: I don't know, but some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don't they?

“It is said that for money you can have everything, but you cannot. You can buy food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; knowledge, but not wisdom; glitter, but not beauty; fun, but not joy; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; leisure, but not peace. You can have the husk of everything for money, but not the kernel.”
- Arne Garborg

"Please don’t make the mistake of thinking the arts and sciences are at odds with one another. That is a recent, stupid, and damaging idea. You don’t have to be unscientific to make beautiful art, to write beautiful things.

If you need proof: Twain, Adams, Vonnegut, McEwen, Sagan, Shakespeare, Dickens. For a start.

You don’t need to be superstitious to be a poet. You don’t need to hate GM technology to care about the beauty of the planet. You don’t have to claim a soul to promote compassion.

Science is not a body of knowledge nor a system of belief; it is just a term which describes humankind’s incremental acquisition of understanding through observation. Science is awesome." - Tim Minchin

That's very thought-provoking. We do have that artificial and harmful distinction between science and the arts. It applies to religious belief, too. So many times, Christians dismiss science and scientists dismiss Christianity, as if the two were mutually exclusive. :?

Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are.

I always prefer to believe the best of everybody; it saves so much trouble.
