Question:

How many times do you have to tell a fifty year old mouthy aggressive bully to get out of your face?

Answer:

Dunno... After giving a dozen warnings, the pepper spray did the trick... I'm quite sure he'll be back... ;)

(Of course, it almost landed *ME* in jail for trespassing due to being on the wrong side of the lake! Go figure.)

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your
heart and try to love the questions themselves...

Do not seek the answers, which cannot be given you
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything.

Live the questions now.
Perhaps you will, gradually, without noticing it,
live along some distant day into the answer.

- Ranier Maria Rilke

“Where are all the good men dead, in the heart or in the head?” - Debi Newberry in 'Grosse Point Blank'

Possibly derived from the Bard’s Merchant of Venice:

“Tell me where is fancy bred,
Or in the heart or in the head?” (A3,S2)

This could have all been avoided if someone had told us that scum rises to the top and shooting stars die off... ;)
