  • Smart listens to the head. Stupid listens to the heart.
  • Smart had one good idea and that idea was stupid.
  • Stupid is trial and error. Mostly error.
  • Smart may have the brains, but stupid has the balls.
  • Smart has the brains, stupid has the balls.
  • Stupid might fail. Smart doesn't even try.
  • Smart has the plans, stupid has the stories.
  • If we didn't have stupid thoughts we'd have no interesting thoughts at all.
  • Only the stupid can be truly brilliant.
  • We're with stupid.
  • Smart may have the answers, but stupid has all the interesting questions.
  • Smart says No. Stupid says Yes.
Be stupid. DIESEL

Oscar Wilde

Love is fed by the imagination, by which we become wiser than we know, better than we feel, nobler than we are: by which we can see Life as a whole: by which, and by which alone, we can understand others in their real as in their ideal relations.

Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

In the case of enlightened people, they do not plan for the future because they have no desire to provide security for themselves. They do not need to know the pattern of the future anymore. They have conquered the preconception of ‘future.’ They are fully in the now. The now has the potential of the future in it, as well as that of the past.

Matthieu Ricard

Children, old people, vagabonds laugh easily and heartily: they have nothing to lose and hope for little. In renunciation lies a delicious taste of simplicity and deep peace.

Richard Layard

No society can work unless its members feel responsibilities as well as rights.

Daniel Kahneman

Many people will admit that they made a mistake. But that doesn’t mean that they’ve changed their mind about anything in particular. It doesn’t mean that they are now able to avoid that mistake.

Eckhart Tolle

Nothing ever happened in the past; it happened in the now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the now.

Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are cause by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.

Bernard Leach

Every artist knows that he is engaged in an encounter with infinity, and that work done with heart and hand is ultimately worship of life itself.

Antonin Scalia

I even accept for the sake of argument that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged.

But it is blindingly clear that judges have no greater capacity than the rest of us to decide what is moral.

Charles Robert Darwin

Under nature, the slightest differences of structure or constitution may well turn the nicely balanced scale in the struggle for life, and so be preserved. How fleeting are the wishes and efforts of man! how short his time! and consequently how poor will be his results, compared with those accumulated by Nature during whole geological periods! Can we wonder, then, that Nature’s productions should be far “truer” in character than man’s productions; that they should be infinitely better adapted to the most complex conditions of life, and should plainly bear the stamp of far higher workmanship?

Nwonknu Rohtua

My thoughts are free to go anywhere, but it's surprising how often they head in your direction.

Alan Alexander Milne

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh," he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw, "I just wanted to be sure of you."



Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

The present inequitable and unfavorable conditions run counter to the very nature of human kind and move in a direction which contravenes the truth and the goal behind the creation of the world.
It is no longer possible to inject thousands of billions of dollars of unreal wealth to the world economy simply by printing worthless paper assets, or transfer inflation as well as social and economic problems to others through creating severe budget deficits.
Approaches in which realization of the interests of certain powers is considered as the only criteria to weigh democracy, and using the ugliest methods of intimidation and deceit under the mantle of freedom as a democratic practice, and approaches through which sometimes dictators are portrayed as democrats, lack legitimacy and must be totally rejected.

Andrei Konurov

It is wild that the main critic of Iran's nuclear program is the US, the only country which has actually used nuclear weapon. The US nuclear strikes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed over 150,000 people. Iran never attacked other countries since its Islamic Revolution, while during the same period of time the US has launched aggressions against Grenada, Panama, Iraq (twice), Somali, Yugoslavia, and Afghanistan, and also bombed Sudan. Curiously, Iraq's alleged possession of a stockpile of weapons of mass destruction served as the pretext for the US invasion of the country, though the arsenals have never been found.

Muammar al-Gaddafi

We are committed to defend the sovereignty of nations in a collective fashion, but that did not prevent the outbreak of 65 wars of aggression with the UN doing nothing to curb them, including eight major wars that claimed the lives of millions of people, perpetrated by a veto holding member of the Security Council. The states that we thought would repel aggression protect peoples turned out to the ones that used aggressive force while enjoying the veto.

Henry Fairfield Osborn

Whatever may be its intellectual, its literary, its artistic or its musical aptitudes, as compared with other races, the Anglo-Saxon branch of the Nordic race is again showing itself to be that upon which the nation must chiefly depend for leadership, for courage, for loyalty, for unity and harmony of action, for self-sacrifice and devotion to an ideal. Not that members of other races are not doing their part, many of them are, but in no other human stock which has come to this country is there displayed the unanimity of heart, mind and action which is now being displayed by the descendants of the blue-eyed, fair-haired peoples of the north of Europe.

Jean-Henri Fabre

Que vois-je là, à mes pieds ? Un bel oiseau vient de s'envoler de sa cachette sous l'auvent d'une large pierre. Bénédiction du Ciel, il y a un nid de crins et de fines pailles. C'est le premier que je trouve, la première des joies que me vaudra l'oiseau. Et dans ce nid, il y a six oeufs, joliment groupés à côté l'un de l'autre ; et ces oeufs sont d'un bleu magnifique, comme trempés dans une teinture de céleste azur. Terrassé de bonheur, je m'étends sur la pelouse et contemple.

Madison Grant

While democracy is fatal to progress when two races of unequal value live side by side, an aristocracy may be equally injurious whenever, in order to purchase a few generations of ease and luxury, slaves or immigrants are imported to do the heavy work. It was a form of aristocracy that brought slaves to the American colonies and the West Indies and if there had been an aristocratic form of governmental control in California, Chinese coolies and Japanese laborers would now form the controlling element, so far as numbers are concerned, on the Pacific coast.

She reminded me of my best friend growing up - always living in a dream world. Figures shifting when they move- Like you see ghosts do in those old cheap horror films. Looking fragmented, slowly. .... Now cut..

and, you

Look, I'm a practicing Roman Catholic, but you don't have to be Catholic, you don't have to be a Christian to work for Blackwater.
A more telling criticism of the company may come from the State Department officials whom Blackwater protects. Certainly, they are grateful to be guarded by former Navy SEALs and other Special Forces veterans, rather than green, young National Guardsmen. Blackwater likes to boast, accurately, that it has never lost a client. Still, some American diplomats—and not a few professional soldiers in the U.S. military—look askance at the heavy-handed swagger of the Blackwater guards, who often sport goatees and tattoos, wear wraparound shades, brandish their weapons and have been known to run anyone off the road who gets in their way.
