We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us. Ideas of the Stone Age exist side by side with the latest scientific thought. Only a fraction of mankind has emerged from the Dark Ages.
"when americans visit vienna, rome, or prague, they marvel at the art and architectures of the so called dark ages. on their way back to their hotels, they have to pass through the newer buildings of the last 100 years, the so called modern era, and they dont marvel at all. yet they seem convinced, that they live in a light age compared to the dark age. haha, must it roar from the skies at such willful blindness. "
this is quote!
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear—not absence of fear. Except a creature be part coward, it is not a compliment to say he is brave; it is merely a loose misapplication of the word. ~Mark Twain
I used to kind of like that song "Can't Fight The Moonlight" from Coyote Ugly ... This puts a different spin on it:
Don’t knock on any random door like a beggar.
Reach your long hands out to another door, beyond where
you go on the street, the street
where everyone says, “How are you?”
and no one says How aren’t you?
Tomorrow you’ll see what you’ve broken and torn tonight,
thrashing in the dark. Inside you
there’s an artist you don’t know about.
He’s not interested in how things look different in moonlight.

“Allow me to give my lord one last piece of counsel," the old man had said, "the same counsel I once gave my brother when we parted for the last time. He was three-and-thirty when the Great Council chose him to mount the Iron Throne. A man grown with sons of his own, yet in some ways still a boy. Egg had an innocence to him, a sweetness we all loved. Kill the boy within you, I told him the day I took ship for the Wall. It takes a man to rule. An Aegon, not an Egg. Kill the boy and let the man be born." The old man felt Jon's face. "You are half the age that Egg was, and your own burden is crueler one, I fear. You will have little joy of your command, but I think you have the strength in you to do the things that must be done. Kill the boy, Jon Snow. Winter is almost upon us. Kill the boy and let the man be born.”
The one thing I would guess about the Lord of Judgment is that He probably won't blame your parents
"Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise" ~ Victor Hugo
"Forced to choose between honor on the one hand, and those he loves on the other, what would he do?"
"If you accomplish something good with hard work, the labor passes quickly, but the good endures; if you do something shameful in pursuit of pleasure, the pleasure passes quickly, but the shame endures" ~ Gaius Musonius Rufus
From The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge, should have read this a long time ago:
BTW, Bach-y-Rita invented a haptic system that allowed the blind to see IN THE SIXTIES. You gotta wonder how many great ideas like this gets ignored and people just don't know about it.
George Burns: 'It is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate. '
I have often noticed that when chickens quit quarreling over their food they often find that there is enough for all of them. I wonder if it might not be the same with the human race.
You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”– Dr. Suess
