'When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.'

~ Jimi Hendrix

'Literati of every class and denomination... Let not the inexperienced be intimidated from assuming the pen.'

~ Columbian Magazine, or Monthly Miscellany, {1786}


'Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according
to conscience,
above all liberties.'

'Art is a way of saying what it means to be alive, and the most salient feature of existence is the unthinkable odds against it. For every way that there is of being here, there are an infinity of ways of not being here. Historical accident snuffs out whole universes with every clock tick. Statistics declare us ridiculous. Thermodynamics prohibits us. Life, by any reasonable measure, is impossible, and my life--this, here, now--infinitely more so. Art is a way of saying, in the face of all that impossibility, just how worth celebrating it is to be able to say anything at all.'

~Richard Powers, 1921-1996

  All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.

Art teaches nothing, except the significance of life.

Henry Miller

I don't care if it is real good,
Real bad,
Or real in~between,
Just as long as it is real.

{From the book, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues.}

“Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.”

~ Albert Einstein

Your choices will change the world.

You create the world.

Nulla tenaci invia est via

Kill Qwerty!

{Even if I can type it in the dark...}

Place your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark.

Do not confuse "duty" with what other people expect of you; they are utterly different. Duty is a debt you owe to yourself to fulfill obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect.

But there is no reward at all for doing what other people expect of you, and to do so is not merely difficult, but impossible. It is easier to deal with a footpad...  Time is your total capital, and the minutes of your life are painfully few.

So learn to say No — and to be rude about it when necessary.

Otherwise you will not have time to carry out your duty, or to do your own work, and certainly no time for love and happiness.

'I read my eyes out and can't read half enough. ... The more one reads the more one sees we have to read.'

Be very, very careful what you put into that head,
because you will never, ever get it out.

~Thomas Cardinal Wolsey (1471-1530)

'We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.'

~ Aristotle
