Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
A collection of random thoughts, lessons, observations and things that make me smile...
You know you're out of shape when air drumming at a stop light winds you and you almost black out by the chorus.
Never trust someone whose favorite drink is 151. You're either in for a night of fights, crying or throwup. Either way, walk away. Now.
What you project, you manifest. What has defeated you will do it again when you give it the strength to. Smash negativity before it has time to rise again.
You will never learn anything, especially compassion and tolerance, if you only seek to confirm what you have already learned.
Dear phone autocorrect. There is no such word as "habe". This idiocy needs to stop.
I don't have enough gray hair to accept hearing Enter Sandman on the classic rock station.
If you see the "left wing-right wing" concept in a spherical three dimensional spectrum, rather than the 2D linear version we are sold, you realize at some point, the left and right connect again at the fringes. Let that one digest for a half second.
Calling people sheep doesn't make you a shepherd.
Some people seethe with negativity. No matter how you address them, no matter what you say, they see the shitty side to everything. If it's sunny, they complain about the heat. If you love a band, they tell how much they hate them. If you talk about anything in a positive light around these people they just want to shit on it. They are full of complaints and excuses, never dreams and solutions. Limit your contact with these people. You do not need them in your life.
You always know when a Pink Floyd song is over when you hear the wind.
I will never tire of watching people stand up unprepared on the bus just as the driver hits the brakes.
Nothing worth anything is easy.
To the lady in front of me at the redbox...you're picking a movie, not a college. Get a little more decisive.
