“This was my first lesson about gambling: if you see somebody winning all the time, he isn’t gambling, he’s cheating. Later on in life, if I were continuously losing in any gambling situation, I would watch very closely.”

― Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X

 

I’ve led most of my life like a typical sixties brat. You know, drugs, sex, and rock ‘n’ roll.”

 ― Gary Goldstick, Saving the Karamazovs

I will lift up mine eyes unto the pills. Almost everyone takes them, from the humble aspirin to the multi-coloured, king-sized three deckers, which put you to sleep, wake you up, stimulate and soothe you all in one. It is an age of pills.
Malcolm Muggeridge.

She always says, my lord, that facts are like cows. If you look them in the face hard enough they generally run away.

“Did you ever fly a kite in bed?
Did you ever walk with ten cats on your head?
Did you ever milk this kind of cow?
Well, we can do it. We know how.
If you never did, you should.
These things are fun and fun is good.”

Dr. Seuss, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

“I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
An if each and all be aware I sit content.
One world is aware, and by the far the largest to me, and that
is myself,
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand
or ten million years,
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness,
I can wait.”


–   Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
