Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.

My opinion from a straight man;
A woman wants to marry another
woman, go for it.
A man wants to marry another
man, go for it.
For people who keep saying that
marriage should be between a man
and a woman, fine. But don’t be
spouting the venom and bullshit
by putting the Gays and Lesbians
They don’t bother me, and they are
not bothering you, the so called
righteous ones. Get over it.
It’s not the end of the fucking
“You do not need to leave your room, remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Do not even wait, be still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you. To be unmasked, it has no choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet. ” – Franz Kafka
“You can’t learn in school what the world is going to do next year.”
– Henry Ford

The trouble with the world
is that the stupid are
cocksure and the intelligent
full of doubt.
It is not materialism that is the chief curse of the world, as pastors teach, but idealism. Men get into trouble by taking their visions and hallucinations too seriously.
– H. L. Mencken

a mirror. Otherwise, all you see is
yourself and whatever is behind you.”

Another conversation between he and she.
She: Good morning.
He: Good morning, or is it a good morning.
She: I see your not in a good mood.
She: Yes, you.
He: Do you really want to know why I’m not in a good mood?
She: Please tell.
He: Well … I slept like shit.
She: Shit is not a good thing.
He: You got that right.
She: Since you slept as you say, like shit then that is not a good thing.
She: So how I can help you to make this a good morning?
He: First off, I need a good, strong mug of black coffee.
She: That’s a good thing for you.
He: Coffee is good, and good for the soul too.
She: I’ll stick with a good cup of tea.
He: Tea is good, but I’m not a morning tea drinker.
She: I know that.
He: Good that we agree on that.
She: How’s the coffee?
He: As good as it gets.
He: Now that the coffee is working, it looks like it’s going to be good day.
She: I love it when you have a good day, and a good evening too.
He: A good day, makes everything right with the world.
She: I hope tonight you get a good night’s sleep.
He: I’m planning on it.
She: Good of you to say that.
He: It’s all good.
Who can do, don’t want to;
Who wants to, can’t do;
Who knows how to do, won’t do it;
Who does it, doesn’t know how to;
and, so, badly goes the world.
— Italian Proverb
You can’t imagine how stupid the whole world has grown nowadays.
— Nikolai Gogol (March 31, 1809 – March 4, 1852
The many great gardens of the world, of literature and poetry,
of painting and music, of religion and architecture, all make the
point as clear as possible: The soul cannot thrive in the
absence of a garden. If you don’t want paradise, you are not
human; and if you are not human, you don’t have a soul.
— Thomas Moore
