Sometimes I do what I want to do. Sometimes I do what I have to do.


If you want to see the truth you will need contrast, not adherence to a single idea. The truth is in the contrast.


You may know a thing and it is not true. But in understanding, there can be ONLY truth.


EDIT: And the one that started me down a great path:


The truth, that which is happening right now, cannot be written down or spoken. Once it is it becomes knowledge and knowledge is not truth because knowledge is fixed in time. Truth is ever moving, ever changing. Once you pause to reflect, it is not truth.

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." –Mark Twain

Where ever you go, there you are.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. Robert A. Heinlein

I saw the Beach Boys once in Philadelphia and Jimmy Page was sitting in on guitar and Mr T came out to play drums and said

"Let's get this surf thing going" bam bam bam bam. Was awesome and pretty much sums it up for me. I use it a lot.
