My thought of the day:

“Maybe that's what life is...a wink of the eye and winking stars.” - Jack Kerouac.

Universe is not an awful waste of space.

All good things must be brought to ruin by bad people...

"Lucifers Law"... ;)

(Good intentions don't mean a thing, it's the result that matters.)

The way to hell is paved with good intentions....

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)
Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.

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

I don't hold grudges and you're already forgiven, but now that I know what you're capable of, I choose to avoid you... ;)
