‘‘when the mind is still, the universe surrenders’’

‘‘i came, i saw, i concured’’

Follow your bliss.

J. Campbell

In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
Drive your cart and your plow over the bones of the dead.
The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.
Prudence is a rich ugly old maid courted by Incapacity.
He who desires but acts not, breeds pestilence.
The cut worm forgives the plow.
Dip him in the river who loves water.

A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.
He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star.
Eternity is in love with the productions of time.
The busy bee has no time for sorrow.
The hours of folly are measur’d by the clock, but of wisdom: no clock can measure.

All wholsom food is caught without a net or a trap.
Bring out number weight & measure in a year of dearth.
No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.
A dead body, revenges not injuries.
The most sublime act is to set another before you.
If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise.
Folly is the cloke of knavery.
Shame is Prides cloke.

William Blake

Only part of us is sane: only part of us loves pleasure and the longer day of happiness, wants to live to our nineties and die in peace, in a house that we built, that shall shelter those who come after us. The other half of us is nearly mad. It prefers the disagreeable to the agreeable, loves pain and its darker night despair, and wants to die in a catastrophe that will set back life to its beginnings and leave nothing of our house save its blackened foundations. – Rebecca West

Selfish persons are incapable of loving others, but they are not capable of loving themselves either.

Erich Fromm


‘Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.’

-Charles Bukowski


A Charles Bukowski fan. I read “Notes from a dirty old man” most likely when I was too young. The man really is very funny.

How about these lines from a Ricky Nelson song on the radio long ago -

“It’s alright now. I’ve learned my lesson well. If you can’t please everyone, you gotta please yourself”.
