What's So Bad About Feeling Good? The imperialist ideology of force, from whatever side it comes, must be shattered for all time.

|THE CORRUPT FEAR US · THE HONEST SUPPORT US · THE HEROIC JOIN US.|
|~ ANONYMOUS ~|
|~ George Orwell ~|
I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs, that honesty is always the best policy.
|~ George Washington ~|
I shall concern myself anew about the boundary
Between the love-deed-Yes and the power-deed-No
And pressing forward honor reality.
We cannot avoid
|~ Martin Buber ~|
What's outside of Pleasantville?
|~ Gary Ross ~|
My political opinions lean more and more to Anarchy …philosophically understood, meaning abolition of control … The most improper job of any man … is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.
|~ J. R. R. Tolkien ~|
If rules make you nervous and depressed, and not desirous of participating in the Wiki, then ignore them and go about your business.
|~ Lee Daniel Crocker ~|
|~ Elbert Hubbard ~|
|~ Augustine of Hippo ~|
Whatever pretended pessimists in search of notoriety may say, most people are naturally kind, at heart.
The law of levity is allowed to supersede the law of gravity.
~ R. A. Lafferty ~
Of course I'm sane, when trees start talking to me, I don't talk back.
~ William Blake ~
|The realization that life is absurd and cannot be an end, but only a beginning. This is a truth nearly all great minds have taken as their starting point.|
|~ Albert Camus ~|
All of us, without being taught, have attained to a belief in some sort of divinity, though it is not easy for all men to know the precise truth about it, nor is it possible for those who do know it to tell it to all men.
~ Julian the Philosopher ~
We are all absolutely free. If everybody could go into dhyana at will, nobody could be controlled — by fear of prison, by fear of whips or electroshock, by fear of death, even. All existing society is based on keeping those fears alive, to control the masses. Ten people who know would be more dangerous than a million armed anarchists.
~ Robert Anton Wilson ~
It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.
|~ William Kingdon Clifford ~|
We live beyond words, as also we live beyond computation and beyond theory.
There is no reason whatever to assume that the languages of science are less limited than other languages.
~ Wendell Berry ~
As soon as men live entirely in accord with the law of love natural to their hearts and now revealed to them, which excludes all resistance by violence, and therefore hold aloof from all participation in violence — as soon as this happens, not only will hundreds be unable to enslave millions, but not even millions will be able to enslave a single individual.
~ Leo Tolstoy ~
I am the dreamer and the doer
I the hearer and the knower
I the giver and the taker
I the sword and the wound of sword.
If this be true, then let sword fall free from hand.
I embrace myself.
I laugh until I weep
And weep until I smile…
~ Ray Bradbury ~
|~ Eliezer Yudkowsky ~|
There Was Never Just One.
|~ The Bourne Legacy ~|
|There probably is a God. Many things are easier to explain if there is than if there isn't.|
|~ John von Neumann ~|
God is an Iron.
|~ Spider Robinson ~|
No one is exempt from talking nonsense. The great misfortune is to do it solemnly.
~ Anthony de Mello ~
There’s something out there and it’s laughing at us.
Anything that happens, happens.
Anything that, in happening, cause something else to happen, causes something else to happen.
Anything that, in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again.
It doesn't necessarily do it in chronological order though.
~ Douglas Adams ~
Mostly Harmless (1992)
Let's not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.
|~ James Thurber ~|
|We're old souls in a new life baby. |
They gave us a new life
To live and learn.
|~ Paul Williams ~ |
~ Phantom of the Paradise ~
|I don't do drugs. ... I've got enough bizarre chemicals floating around in my head. I'm just naturally like this.|
|~ Terry Gilliam ~|
~ Walt Disney ~
|The movie never changes. |
It can't change; but every time you see it, it seems different because you're different.
You see different things.
|~ 12 Monkeys ~|
~ Gautama Buddha ~
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
~ Paul of Tarsus ~
That power which circumstances placed in my hands, and which is an emanation of divinity, I am conscious of having used to the best of my skill.
I have never wittingly wronged any one.
~ Henrik Ibsen ~
A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation.
He hardly knows which is which.
He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing.
To himself, he always appears to be doing both.
~ L. P. Jacks ~
|~ The Stranger ~|
~ The Big Lebowski ~
I am convinced that everyone can develop a good heart and a sense of universal responsibility with or without religion.
~ Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama ~
|I am an Anarchist not because I believe Anarchism is the final goal, but because there is no such thing as a final goal.|
|~ Rudolf Rocker ~|
I've never seen anybody really find the answer, but they think they have.
So they stop thinking.
But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom.
The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.
~ Ken Kesey ~

This page was created as a place to hold a form of long standing graphic and quote presentation that was on my talk page up until today — I intend to reduce the length of this considerably in coming days, and perhaps refine some variants I have in mind in coming weeks. ~ ♞☤☮♌Kalki·†·⚓⊙☳☶⚡ 17:23, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
