“You read any Greek myths, puppy? The one about the gorgon Medusa, particularly? I used to wonder what could be so terrible that you couldn’t survive even looking at it. Until I got a little older and I figured out the obvious answer. Everything.”

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” Yoda.

Still she rises an hour before work
to walk the river path, arms stretched out
awkwardly like swan wings to work the fat.
It must be nice, I say, to be pretty;
some desires you never grow out of.

“Anger … it’s a paralyzing emotion … you can’t get anything done. People sort of think it’s an interesting, passionate, and igniting feeling — I don’t think it’s any of that — it’s helpless … it’s absence of control — and I need all of my skills, all of the control, all of my powers … and anger doesn’t provide any of that — I have no use for it whatsoever.”

[Interview with CBS radio host Don Swaim, September 15, 1987.]” 
― Toni Morrison

A man can’t eat anger for breakfast and sleep with it at night and not suffer damage to his soul.

When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”

Song for a Singer

When you go underground with all your airs,
Your kindly lies and your ridiculous prayers,
You shall not ever fear to face again
The strong man’s rage, the woman wild with pain
Nor song nor sigh will beat upon your brain.

The world will mourn you neither less nor more
Than all the pawns who played the game before;
The lover-lad will kiss his love anew
The water-birds will have their dance to do,
And the rude Spring will gallop over you.

The men who make will match the men who mar,
The eye unsatisfied will seek a star;
Your visitor the worm will speak you fair,
The bride will tremble and the child will stare,
And the red Summer will ride everywhere. 

John Shaw Neilson

“If you don’t figure out what is at your core, what you stand for, and what ultimately motivates you, you’ll always second-guess yourself. You’ll always have regrets. Uncover your core values and use them as a template to test decisions in your life.” 


Jim Hayhurst, Sr.

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

Patient:
Patient, he attends 
to the sick engine 
of his shell 
that’s wheeled him 
to this Krankenhaus
White robe, 
bearing label
Prince of Wales 
open behind 
to give fair crack. 
Will this victim look
become a fashion 
on this trendy street?
Cranky, he belts down
the bonnet lid.
Does his surgeon, 
when his tools 
go awry, 
treat his patient so?

When a man is wrong and won’t admit it, he always gets angry.

When a man finds that he was wrong to have refused to eat, he should leave his anger and play a harp to call for harmony.

Nobody was playing the soprano saxophone and certainly nobody was trying to do anything with it. So I was all alone. I didn’t know that at first.

“My music teacher offered twittering madrigals and something about how, in Italy, in Italy, the oranges hang on the tree. He treated me – the humiliation of it – as a soprano.

These, by contrast, are the six elements of a Sacred Harp alto: rage, darkness, motherhood, earth, malice, and sex. Once you feel it, you can always do it. You know where to go for it, though it will cost you.”

Well, she wore far too much rouge last night, and not quite enough clothes. That is always a sign of desperation in a woman.”

Life is magnificent – just as it comes.
Life has no need for fancy clothes, or lipstick.
Life is no pig.
Our life is the greatest gift of all creation.
When we are unhappy with life –
when we are shocked by the stock market,
or dismayed by our choice of political candidates,
let us not lash out in anger.
But also, let us not try to pretty up life
with some lipstick and some party clothes.
See life clearly – no rose coloured glasses –
and then CHOOSE to love life.
CHOOSE to be happy, be joyful, be grateful,
be forgiving of everyone and of every act
we believe has hurt us.
Life just “IS.”
We get to CHOOSE our relationship with life.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

“Pain can be endured and defeated only if it is embraced. Denied or feared, it grows in perception if not in reality. The best response to terror is righteous anger, confidence in ultimate justice, a refusal to be intimidated.”

― Dean Koontz, Velocity

“No matter how good things are, there will always be solitary nights you spend in your bedroom or car or in a party full of your closest friends when it feels like the walls are caving in.

Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them,
since you cannot even make yourself as you wish to be.

“Time is the substance I am made of. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.”

Our greediness so often troubles us, making us run after so many things at the same time, that while we too eagerly look after the least, we miss the greatest

“Let’s just call things what they are. When a man’s love of finery clouds his moral judgement, that is vanity. When he lets a demanding palate make his moral choices, that is gluttony. When he ascribes the divine will to his own whims, that is pride. And when he gets angry at being reminded of animal suffering that his own daily choices might help avoid, that is moral cowardice.”
― Matthew Scully.

You can’t ride two horses with one behind. Woody Allen

Z rcaldecottspictu00cald_0018

The one best precept-
the golden rule in dealing with a horse
-is never to approach him angrily.
Anger is so devoid of forethought
that it will often drive a man to do things
which in a calmer mood he will regret.

    – Xenophon –

Pride, anger, gluttony, and idleness are sometimes conquered, but the conversion of a malicious and envious mind is a kind of miracle.

― Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont

“He grinned. “I was trying to remember all the deadly sins the other day,” he said. “Greed,envy, gluttony, irony, pedantry…”
“I’m pretty sure irony isn’t a deadly sin.”
“I’m pretty sure it is.”
“Lust,” she said. “Lust is a deadly sin.”
“And spanking.”
“I think that falls under lust.”
“I think it should have its own category,” said Jace. “Greed, envy, gluttony, irony, pedantry, lust, and spanking.”
