    That which does not kill me, had better run pretty damn fast.

    Not very poetic, I don’t even know who wrote it, but it fits me.

    “If you can’t fuck it and it doesn’t dance, eat it or throw it away.” Pat Cadigan

    From the novel “Synners”. I love this because it’s a long way from how I behave. Mind you, the big move has sent me down this path a ways.

    “Never retreat, never explain, never apologize–get the thing done and let them howl.” Nellie Mcclung

    (One of the Famous Five who forced the Canadian legal system to recognize women as “persons”) Again, advice I need to hear often.

    Ok, my other ticket:

    Screw me once, shame on you.

    Screw me twice, shame on me.

    My Grandpa taught me that.

    “The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter—’tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”

    —Mark Twain

  14. cIII 9.8.2008


    There is really nothing you must be.

    And there is nothing you must do.

    There is really nothing you must have.

    And there is nothing you must know.

    There is really nothing you must become.

    However, it helps to understand that fire burns,

    and when it rains, the earth gets wet.

    Japanese Zen scroll
