"To love. To be loved.
To never forget your own insignificance.
To never get used to the unspeakable violence and
the vulgar disparity of life around you.
To seek joy in the saddest places.   To pursue beauty to its lair.
To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple.
To respect strength, never power.
Above all, to watch.   To try and understand.   To never look away.
And never, never, to forget."

 - Arundhati Roy

"The First Amendment rests on the assumption that the widest possible
dissemination of information from diverse and antagonistic sources is essential
to the welfare of the public, that a free press is a condition of a free society."

- Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black

In a nation whose defining document begins, "We the People," I find
that it is we the people who constitute the greatest threat to the
future of America. It is not through the force of our actions, but rather
the vacuum created by our inaction and apathy, a vacuum all too readily
filled by those who would have us exchange our hard-fought freedoms for
a gilded cage of market-driven consumerism.

-- Scott Ritter

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted
to a profoundly sick society.

- J. Krishnamurti

Culture is not truth. Culture is other people's trash,
you know, the detritus of thousands of years of mistakes,
that's what culture is...

- Terrance McKenna

Civilization is the limitless multiplication
of unnecessary necessities.

-- Mark Twain

Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter
and those who matter don't mind.

- Dr Seuss

When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries
disappear and life stands explained.

- Mark Twain, Notebook

Work like you don't need the money,
love like you've never been hurt,
and dance like no one is watching.

--- Satchel Paige

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely
in a well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out,
shouting  "...holy shit ...what a ride!"

- George Carlin
