"What does it matter, a dream of love, or a dream of lies,
We're all gonna be in the same place when we die.
Your spirit don't leave knowing your face or your name,
And the wind through your bones is all that remains.
And we're all gonna be... We're all gonna be...
Just dirt in the ground"
-- Tom Waits 'Dirt in the Ground'
"By the word 'Religion' I've seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination
be called the will of God. I've seen too much religion in the eyes of too many
murderers. Holiness is in right action and courage on behalf of those who cannot
defend themselves. By what you decide to do every day, you will be a good man.
- Kingdom of Heaven
"The greatest journey a man could ever go on is not one that takes place in any location,
nor is it bound by time. It is only bound by the spirit of man, driving forward toward
his destiny, to make full of his dreams, his ambitions, but most importantly, to find the
harmony of his soul.
Step forward into the world and keep pace, keep breathing, keep strong, but above all
else, keep going.
Remember what you leave behind, but also remember what you have to
gain. For a man is made out of his life, not only what he is now, but what he was in his
past, and what he will be in the future."
-- Kris Keegan

walk on the pavement, watch TV, save for your old age, obey the law.
Repeat after me : I am free"
"But a wounded heart
that lashes in defense and ache
should be treated with love
lest it be left to break."
"When on a quest for vengeance, dig two graves." - Confucius

"Lies aren't true, so why would anyone tell them?" - Unknown
"To err is human; to forgive, divine."
"Cogito ergo sum" "I think, therefore I am"
"If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing."
"If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing..."
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails...."
"I may be able to speak the language of man and even of angels, but if I know no love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong of a clanging bell."
- 1 Corinthians 13:1
