“Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.”
_Max Ehrmann c.1920
“Who then knows whence it has arisen,
Whence this emanation hath arisen,
Whether God disposed it, or whether he did not?
Only he who is its overseer in highest heaven knows.
Or perhaps, he does not know!”
”...The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity…
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?”
“Choose your companions from the best; Who draws a bucket with the rest soon topples down the hill.”
“I am death, the mighty destroyer of the world, out to destroy. Even without your participation all the warriors standing arrayed in the opposing armies shall cease to exist.
_Bhagavad Gita – Vishnu to Prince Arjuna
“How it is that we still refuse to be comforted for those who we nevertheless maintain are dwelling in unspeakable bliss; why all the living so strive to hush all the dead; wherefore but the rumor of a knocking in a tomb will terrify a whole city. All these things are not without their meanings.”
—Herman Melville -Ishmael speaking in Moby Dick
“Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
_Tennyson. Thanks CWOTUS
I’m sure you’ll have some cosmic rationale
But here you are in the ninth
Two men out and three men on
Nowhere to look but inside….
... here you are with your faith
And your Peter Pan advice
You have no scars on your face
And you cannot handle pressure
Before there was Autotune

Wish I would have been around then. I would have asked her out
My mom loved this song. She said it reminded her of…me
As a kid I had the very serious hots for this girl. Still a fan today
