Pat Buchanan:

"Adolf Hitler was an individual of great courage... Hitler's success was not based on his extraordinary gifts alone. His genius was an intuitive sense of the mushiness, the character flaws, the weakness masquerading as morality that was in the hearts of the statesmen who stood in his path."

"Martin Luther King was a fraud and a demagogue and perhaps worse... Others consider him the Devil incarnate. Dr. King is one of the most divisive men in contemporary history."

"Rail as they will about 'discrimination,' women are simply not endowed by nature with the same measures of single-minded ambition and the will to succeed in the fiercely competitive world of Western capitalism."


Ezra Pound:

"Usury is the cancer of the world, which only the surgeon's knife of Fascism can cut out of the life of the nation."

"Real education must ultimately be limited to men who insist on knowing, the rest is mere sheep-herding".


George Washington

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington.

Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company.

"Mankind, when left to themselves, are unfit for their own government."

"I have always given it as my decided opinion that no nation has a right to intermeddle in the internal concerns of another; that every one has a right to form and adopt whatever government they liked best to live under themselves; and that if this country could, consistently with its engagements, maintain a strict neutrality and thereby preserve peace, it was bound to do so by motives of policy, interest, and every other consideration."


Oswald Mosley

"There are periods in history when change is necessary, and other periods when it is better to keep everything for the time as it is. The art of life is to be in the rhythm of your age."

Great men of action . . . never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job, and at times they all are. A prophet or an achiever must never mind an occasional absurdity, it is an occupational risk.

Ideas in a void have never appealed to me; action must follow thought or political life is meaningless.


Julius Caesar

"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword.

It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind.

And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry.

Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so.

How do I know?

For this is what I have done.

And I am Caesar."


Franz Kafka

"Anyone who cannot come to terms with his life while he is alive needs one hand to ward off a little his despair over his fate . . . but with his other hand he can note down what he sees among the ruins."

"Every revolution evaporates and leaves only the slime of
a new bureaucracy"

"The tremendous world I have inside my head. But how [to] free myself and free it without being torn to pieces. And a thousand times [I'd] rather be torn to pieces than rather it in me or bury it. That, indeed, is why I am here, that is quite clear to me."

"Love is like a knife with which we explore
ourselves."

"Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old."

"If I write not what I speak,
I speak not what I think,
I think not what I ought to
so my writing comes from
the deepest darkness."

"I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit
- that wouldn't be enough
- but like a dead man."

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us."

"If I felt in love,
I would be in a world
in which I could
not live."

"Without a revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement"- Lenin

"All men dream,
But not equally.
Those who dream at night
In the dusk recesses of their minds
Wake in the day to find that it was vanity.

But the dreamers of the day
Are dangerous men
For they may act their dream,
With open eyes,
To make it possible"
- TE Lawrence.

"We find the most terrible form of atheism, not in the militant and passionate struggle against the idea of God himself, but in the practical atheism of everyday living, in indifference and torpor. We often encounter these forms of atheism among those who are formally Christians." - Nikolai Berdyaev

"Understand me: a voluntary, totally, conscious sacrifice of oneself in the interest of all, made under no sort of compulsion. is in my opinion a sign of highest development of the personality. Voluntarily to sacrifice one's life for all, to die on the cross or at the stake, is possible only with the very strongest development of the personality." -Fydor Dostovesky

"Martial glory is the basis of the political virtues." - Heinrich von Treitschke

The genius differs from us men in being able to endure isolation, his rank as a genius is proportionate to his strength for enduring isolation, whereas we men are constantly in need of "the others," the herd; we die, or despair, if we are not reassured by being in the herd, of the same opinion as the herd.

- Sören Kierkegaard


Society is a republic. When an individual endeavors to lift himself above his fellows, he is dragged down by the mass, either by means of ridicule or of calumny. No one shall be more virtuous or more intellectually gifted than others. Whoever, by the irresistable force of genius, rises above the common herd is certain to be ostracized by society, which will pursue him with such merciless derision and detraction that at last he will be compelled to retreat into the solitude of his thoughts.

- Heinrich Heine

In the sphere of thought, absurdity and perversity remain the
masters of the world, and their dominion is suspended only for brief
periods.

My favorite of the bunch. :thumbsup


Democracy is the worst form of government, with the exception of all others.
And America is the proof of that?


If you treat individuals as they are they will remain as they are, but if you treat them as if they were what they ought to be and could be, they will become what they ought to be and could be.
Hence why I refer to myself as "The King." ;)


"We have nothing to fear but fear itself."
This from one of the biggest conspirators, traitors, and treasonist the U.S. has ever seen.


Only sick music makes money today.
If he only knew how true that was...


In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point.
True, but since religion in general is faith in the unknown and unseen; our belief in a supernatural system; the definition of 'reality' would change drastically, depending on who's writing the book.


Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.
More often than not, the moral cursaders of any given time period were the ones most in need of their own dose of medicine.

A few quotes on NATURE:
"When I go into the garden with a spade, and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my own hands." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." - Frank Lloyd Wright

"To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves." - Mohandas Gandhi



FAMILY:
"The family is the nucleus of civilization." - Will and Ariel Durant

"Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family:
Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one." - Jane Howard

"Nobody has ever before asked the nuclear family to live all by itself in a box the way we do. With no relatives, no support, we've put it in an impossible situation." - Margaret Mead

"The voice of parents is the voice of gods, for to their children they are heaven's lieutenants." - William Shakespeare



CHARACTER:
"People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value." - Albert Einstein

BELIEF:
"There are two ways to slide easily through life: to believe everything or to doubt everything; both ways save us from thinking." - Alfred Korzybski

"What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." - Bertrand Russell

"A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"As long as people believe in absurdities, they will continue to commit atrocities." - Voltaire

"I do not believe in God because I do not believe in Mother Goose." - Clarence Darrow

"Calling Atheism a religion is like calling bald a hair color." - Don Hirschberg

"I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure -- that is all that agnosticism means." - Clarence Darrow

"One thing I have no worry about is whether God exists. But it has occurred to me that God has Alzheimer's and has forgotten we exist." - Jane Wagner



ACTION:
"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing." - Albert Einstein

"Big words seldom accompany good deeds." - Charlotte Whitton

"Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little." - Edmund Burke

"All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing." - Edmund Burke

"Never mistake motion for action." - Ernest Hemingway

"The most solid comfort one can fall back upon is the thought that the business of one's life is to help in some small way to reduce the sum of ignorance, degradation and misery on the face of this beautiful earth." - George Eliot

"Nature knows no pause in progress and development, and attaches her curse on all inaction." - Goethe

"I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts." - John Locke

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." - Leo Tolstoy

"It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do." - Moliere

"Good thoughts are no better than good dreams, unless they be executed." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The world is filled with willing people; some willing to work, the rest willing to let them." - Robert Frost

"To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive, and the true success is to labour." - Robert Louis Stevenson

“Boring damned people. All over the earth. Propagating more boring damned people. What a horror show. The earth swarmed with them.”

“You begin saving the world by saving one person at a time; all else is grandiose romanticism or politics.”

“There will always be something to ruin our lives, it all depends on what or which finds us first. We are always ripe and ready to be taken.”

To do what is right, what duty and honor demand, without leering at thousandfold return of each noble deed in the afterlife.
To love folk, fatherland and friends in a manly manner and to seal such love with blood.
To stomp badness into the dust wherever you may find it - because that it 'has' to be bad doesn´t make it less ugly. You also efface adder and nettle although they cannot be blamed for not being nightingale and rose - and while doing so abdicating all happiness, only seeking this profound peace that is infinitely grave and grand like the glorious sky; and woeful, proud thoughts are ascending and declining there like gleaming stars. And to listen to the pulsation of the cosmic law, beating within our own breast like in the drive of the stars.

Ha, where is this living god?
I have searched the sky, the way of the stars, I have searched cruel nature, the more cruel history of man, and found no god except the right of the strongest, the necessity, the dreadfully sublime goddess whose gaze petrifies like that of Medusa.
You are hiding in the mantle-folds of your imagined god, burying your head into his fatherly lap when fate is staring at you with its gorgon´s gaze. Well, it may be. But don´t berate the man who, returning the gaze, speaks: "There is no god!" even if he may become a stone thereof.
Yes, smiling and crying are two graceful pleasures. But Prometheus didn´t smile when Pandora offered the beguiling box. But he also didn´t cry when force and strength forged his limbs to the rocks. And to the vulture that is rending his heart, well, to the vulture he got accustomed. And sooner fate became tired of torturing the titan before the titan would have given in.

Sit on the bank of a river and wait: Your enemy's corpse will soon float by.
-- Indian proverb.

Listen, my friend, there are two races of beings. The masses teeming and happy -- common clay, if you like -- eating, breeding, working, counting their pennies; people who just live; ordinary people; people you can't imagine dead. And then there are the others -- the noble ones, the heroes. The ones you can quite well imagine lying shot, pale and tragic; one minute triumphant with a guard of honor, and the next being marched away between two gendarmes.
-- Jean Anouilh.

The mind is like a richly woven tapestry in which the colors are distilled from the experiences of the senses, and the design drawn from the convolutions of the intellect.
-- Carson McCullers.

A mistress never is nor can be a friend. While you agree, you are lovers; and when it is over, anything but friends.
-- Lord Byron

As freely as the firmament embraces the world, or the sun pours forth impartially his beams, so mercy must encircle both friend and foe.
-- Friedrich Schiller

We are all travellers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.
-- Robert Louis Stevenson

For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands.
-- Christina Rossetti

In misfortune, which friend remains a friend?
-- Euripides

"Death … It’s the only thing we haven’t succeeded in completely vulgarizing." - Huxley

"A group of politicians deciding to dump a President because his morals are bad is like the Mafia getting together to bump off the Godfather for not going to church on Sunday." - Russell Baker

'Anyone who clings to the historically untrue — and thoroughly immoral — doctrine that "violence never solves anything" I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and of the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms." - Robert Heinlein, Starship Troopers

"God is on everyone's side... and in the last analysis, he is on the side with plenty of money and large armies." - Jean Anouilh

"The intelligent man finds almost everything ridiculous, the sensible man hardly anything." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

"I would not say that the future is necessarily less predictable than the past. I think the past was not predictable when it started." - Rumsfeld

"Pain is God's MEGAPHONE." - C.S. Lewis

"When justice is crushed, when evil rules supreme, then I come. For the protection of the good, for the destruction of the evil-doers, for the sake of firmly establishing righteousness, I am born in age after age." - Bhagavad-Gita 4.7-8

"Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficient [...] The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding." - Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis

"A serious and good philosophical work could be written consisting entirely of jokes." - Ludwig Wittgenstein

"Ours is the age which is proud of machines that think and suspicious of men who try to." - Howard Mumford Jones (1892-1980)

"Not the political doctrine of Hitler has hurled us into this war. The reason was the success of his increase in building a new economy. The roots of war were envy, greed and fear." - Major General J.F.C. Fuller, historian, England

"Thank you for not discussing the outside world." - Sign posted outside the Springfield Retirement Community (The Simpsons)

“Be a philosopher but, amid all your philosophy be still a man.” - David Hume

"Let the human mind loose. It must be loose. It will be loose. Superstition and dogmatism cannot confine it." - John Adams

"As long as this deliberate refusal to understand things from above, even where such understanding is possible, continues, it is idle to talk of any final victory over materialism." - Lewis

"The New American Patriot will be neither left nor right, just a freeman fighting for liberty. New alliances will form between those who have in the past thought of themselves as rightwingers, conservatives, and patriots with many people who have thought of themselves as leftwingers, progressives, or just liberal." - Louis Beam

"Men were men, women were women, children acted like children, the elderly were respected -- and that's how it was supposed to be." - Frank Roman

"If you try to please everybody, somebody's not going to like it." - Rumsfeld

"We are a small, religious, and independent nation. To keep up with the rest of the world, we must defend our country. In view of past invasions by foreigners, our people may have to face certain difficulties, which they must disregard." - His Holiness the Dalai Lama XIII

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity:but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible." - T. E. Lawrence

"A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort." - Herm Albright (1876 - 1944)

"Be formless like water so you may adopt all forms." - Bruce Lee

"Artillery adds dignity to what would otherwise be a vulgar brawl." - Frederick the Great

"There are families in which the father will say to his child, ‘You'll get a thick ear if you do that again’, while the mother, her eyes brimming over with tears, will take the child in her arms and murmur lovingly, ‘Now, darling, is it kind to Mummy to do that?’ And who would maintain that the second method is less tyrannous than the first? The distinction that really matters is not between violence and non-violence, but between having and not having the appetite for power." - George Orwell

"I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian because I hate plants." - A. Whitney Brown

"
For what not, if not now, is the great standard to be replaced: for what not if not whom is the great eradicator; for what not if not time itself is to be absolved in the mirth of Dionysian retribution and calamity! Lo and Behold the dime store imbecility below, as flows from the muddied into the mighty and is yet repelled again, and again, and again! Lively and lengthy still the quiescent arm of the mighty! As barer and witness to all things what went before, seen and unseen, in amusement of what has been but a moment of awe-inspiring recurrence. Inextinguishable!—The flame of the eternity to which we have been gifted and hold as bequest: you are requested: your attendance appreciated: the spectacle of atrophy below beckons and groans.

THE MOCKINGBIRD
SIDNEY LANIER


SUPERB and sole, upon a plumèd spray
That o'er the general leafage boldly grew,
He summ'd the woods in song; or typic drew
The watch of hungry hawks, the lone dismay
Of languid doves when long their lovers stray, 5
And all birds' passion-plays that sprinkle dew
At morn in brake or bosky avenue.
Whate'er birds did or dreamed, this bird could say.
Then down he shot, bounced airily along
The sward, twitched in a grasshopper, made song 10
Midflight, perched, prinked, and to his art again.
Sweet Science, this large riddle read me plain:
How may the death of that dull insect be
The life of yon trim Shakespeare on the tree?

…I, too, know my fate—and the fate of my breteren. Our names will go unassociated with the next grand movement of behalf of humanity: which will be, in primitive language “spiritual.” They will know what we were—a fatalistic self-crucifiction: the next leap forward: this is the price; this is the paradox of the new paradigm—of the stratification. the Overmen will be recollection in the hearts of the new beast, whose heart will be so large as to be non-existent. We will be elusive to the next: a ‘nook’ of History. The exemplars of rarity: the imprint. For what will remain of us other than man anew, our children: the sublimest forgetters? What will be conceived of as more simplistic and easy than that which was demanded of them, in themselves, after such a survival as is to come? Largely lost in the aftermath of that ‘prophecy’ that could only self-fullfill; our children will be of the fatherless—in the land of the desolate: they will have found land as such that has never been discovered; they will root back to the New Earth, and know nothing of the gods of whom this ‘humanity’ gave birth: and whom the Overmen absorbed. The great regression is what I here speak of: the starting over: the reparation: gods returning home: gods will rule—and multiply, and will be seen as such. The New Nobility—orderd as the Earth shall have them ordered. She will not fail them. They will have earned. It is there that they will remember. It is there that the pieces of themselves will have integrtated in the rediscovery of what was called struggle by the Overmen: who willed dissolution—of the most primal struggle: to which only they could be a party. Man anew will shake their heads at what was most difficult for their nameless forebares: “ So—where was the difficulty?”—speaking as children. Oh, the glory of that which they will not understand! That of their own waked blood; and spirit fortified. What will they possess in this moral wasteland of time lost? “Whatever is mine!” they will say, as they create new possessions; and hold no contempt—“Great contempt has gone the way of the Overmen; who was himself a bridge—as are we!” In what beautiful tounges they will speak!—in languages of the deepest metaphor, reserved for the few: for who will comprehend the language other than themselves, and amongst themselves! Dialects encapsulating totality—our gifts to them: the awareness of a new sum total of value—that is not fought at: “for why struggle against myself?” they will say: “truth is plain enough—what is this word ‘false?’” “Was it not once said that everything is permitted…so—what was the problem?” “Untruth as a condition…?” ‘Questions’ will be rare: for what will they not know after the integration of Wisdom! It is only this New Nobility that will have the right to refuse questions: “Flux or no—I, myself, am Causa Prima.” “Who amongst even the New Earth will move the mover in me?” “I have seen, my kin has seen, the Old Earth engulfed in flame!—and we have survived: we have survived and been edified by the nameless Overmen—who were a bridge, as are we.” “What other than the Earth is capricious in me?” “Recurrance has selected me: it is my birthrite to now reject it as being—the worries of my forebares are no more: I am the atavism; but I am a child first.” “I hold the heavens; I am the heavens; I am unable to not stake mine own standard—to that ‘transcentendal’ with these worthless gods of whom man and even the Overmen spoke!” “I am mine own purpose!—am I to understand that this ‘man’ this ‘humanity’ once sought gods anywhere other than the Earth!” “How very Homo Sapien.” “Tell me, again, of this ‘good’ and ‘bad.’” “Am I to understand that it differed from this ‘good’ and this ‘evil’…? “No. I have heard enough…”

Dead Love



Oh never weep for love that’s dead
Since love is seldom true
But changes his fashion from blue to red,
From brightest red to blue,
And love was born to an early death
And is so seldom true.

Then harbour no smile on your bonny face
To win the deepest sigh.
The fairest words on truest lips
Pass on and surely die,
And you will stand alone, my dear,
When wintry winds draw nigh.

Sweet, never weep for what cannot be,
For this God has not given.
If the merest dream of love were true
Then, sweet, we should be in heaven,
And this is only earth, my dear,
Where true love is not given.

Robert Frost - The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

My Promise To You


I cannot promise you forever.
We will need time to learn to love each other
and to discover our feelings and wishes -
alone and together.

I cannot promise you that I will always smile.
There will be times of sadness
when I will miss you more than other times
and when I will need your reassurance.

I cannot promise you to always be the same.
But with you I know that I can always be myself
and share my feelings and thoughts with you.


I promise you my honesty.
It was honesty between us from the very beginning,
honesty that brought us closer.

I promise you my patience.
With the obstacles we face at the moment
it will not always be easy.
But worth it – if we don’t give up on love.

I promise you my understanding.
In the ups and downs that life may hold for us
we will need to help each others
when we feel down.

I promise you my true feelings.
To share my happiness and sadness with you
and to always be there for you
when you want to laugh or need to cry.

Most of all, I promise you my love.
Here and now, unconditionally, tender and passionate,
with no boundaries or limits.

Say not the struggle naught availeth


SAY not the struggle naught availeth, The labor and the wounds are vain, The enemy faints not, nor faileth, And as things have been they remain.

If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars; It may be, in yon smoke concealed, Your comrades chase e'en now the fliers, And, but for you, possess the field.

For while the tired waves, vainly breaking, Seem here, no painful inch to gain, Far back, through creeks and inlets making, Comes silent, flooding in, the main.

And not by eastern windows only, When daylight comes, comes in the light, In front, the sun climbs slow, how slowly, But westward, look, the land is bright.

Invictus





OUT of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.


In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud,

Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.


Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.


It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

Do you mean to tell us something with this? :D

The vice of a sharp tantalizing wit may harm the Establishment much more if the proposed ideas offer new and profound perspectives to live for...

It's harder to live through the demands and boundaries set by an ideal, than to die for, of course, but the failure of most men and women is that they seek easy solutions and exist in a flux of emotionalities, lacking any sense of consciousness and responsability... hence also why ideals never work out in reality according to its principle tenets. A leap of faith is sometimes likelier an act of maturity as well the courage to confront, if not embrace, life with all its horrors and shadowplays.

But once they're ingrained in the mindset of people, beit just a handful of individuals, scattered over time and space, or whole populations, anything may happen.

That process demands preservance as it's slow-burning, but the effect in the long run might be more devasting than those dated and so trivial explosive cookeries. ;)

“Everything begins in mysticism and ends in politics.”

"Love is rarer than genius itself. And friendship is rarer than love."

"The honest man must be a perpetual renegade, the life of an honest man a perpetual infidelity. For the man who wishes to remain faithful must take himself perpetually unfaithful to all the continual, successive, indefatigable, renascent errors."

"Tyranny is always better organized than freedom."

"Any father whose son strikes him is guilty: of having conceived a son capable of striking him."

"A great philosophy is not that which passes final judgments, which takes a seat in final truth. It is that which introduces uneasiness, which opens the door to commotion."

"A great philosophy is not that which is never defeated. But a small philosophy is always that which does not fight. - A great philosophy is not a philosophy without reproach, it is a philosophy without fear."

Alone

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

Bread and Music


I.

MUSIC I heard with you was more than music, And bread I broke with you was more than bread; Now that I am without you, all is desolate; All that was once so beautiful is dead.
Your hands once touched this table and this silver, And I have seen your fingers hold this glass. These things do not remember you, belovèd, And yet your touch upon them will not pass.
For it was in my heart you moved among them, And blessed them with your hands and with your eyes; And in my heart they will remember always,-- They knew you once, O beautiful and wise.

II
My heart has become as hard as a city street, The horses trample upon it, it sings like iron, All day long and all night long they beat, They ring like the hooves of time.
My heart has become as drab as a city park, The grass is worn with the feet of shameless lovers, A match is struck, there is kissing in the dark, The moon comes, pale with sleep.
My heart is torn with the sound of raucous voices, They shout from the slums, from the streets, from the crowded places, And tunes from the hurdy-gurdy that coldly rejoices Shoot arrows into my heart.

III
Dead Cleopatra lies in a crystal casket, Wrapped and spiced by the cunningest of hands. Around her neck they have put a golden necklace, Her tatbebs, it is said, are worn with sands.
Dead Cleopatra was once revered in Egypt, Warm-eyed she was, this princess of the South. Now she is old and dry and faded, With black bitumen they have sealed up her mouth.
O sweet clean earth, from whom the green blade cometh! When we are dead, my best belovèd and I, Close well above us, that we may rest forever, Sending up grass and blossoms to the sky.

IV
In the noisy street, Where the sifted sunlight yellows the pallid faces, Sudden I close my eyes, and on my eyelids Feel from the far-off sea a cool faint spray,--
A breath on my cheek, From the tumbling breakers and foam, the hard sand shattered, Gulls in the high wind whistling, flashing waters, Smoke from the flashing waters blown on rocks;
--And I know once more, O dearly belovèd! that all these seas are between us, Tumult and madness, desolate save for the sea-gulls, You on the farther shore, and I in this street.

When we two parted


When we two parted
In silence and tears
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.
The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow--
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.
They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me--
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well:--
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.
In secret we met--
In silence I grieve
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?--
With silence and tears.

Excerpted from H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr.Moreau, chapter 12, The Sayers of the Law:

It was a semicircular space, shaped like the half of a bee-hive, and
against the rocky wall that formed the inner side of it was a pile of
variegated fruits, cocoa-nuts and others. Some rough vessels of lava and
wood stood about the floor, and one on a rough stool. There was no fire.
In the darkest corner of the hut sat a shapeless mass of darkness that
grunted `Hey!' as I came in, and my Ape Man stood in the dim light of
the doorway and held out a split cocoa-nut to me as I crawled into
the other corner and squatted down. I took it and began gnawing it,
as serenely as possible in spite of my tense trepidation and the nearly
intolerable closeness of the den. The little pink sloth creature stood in
the aperture of the hut, and something else with a drab face and bright
eyes came staring over its shoulder.

`Hey,' came out of the lump of mystery opposite. `It is a man! It is a
man!' gabbled my conductor -- ' a man, a man, a live man, like me.'

`Shut up,' said the voice from the dark, and grunted. I gnawed my
cocoa-nut amid an impressive silence. I peered hard into the blackness,
but could distinguish nothing. `It is a man,' the voice repeated.
`He comes to live with us?' It was a thick voice with something in it,
a kind of whistling overtone, that struck me as peculiar, but the English
accent was strangely good.

The Ape Man looked at me as though he expected something. I perceived
the pause was interrogative.

`He comes to live with you,' I said.

`It is a man. He must learn the Law.'

I began to distinguish now a deeper blackness in the black, a vague
outline of a hunched-up figure. Then I noticed the opening of the
place was darkened by two more heads. My hand tightened on my stick.
The thing in the dark repeated in a louder tone, `Say the words.' I had
missed its last remark. `Not to go on all-Fours; that is the Law' --
it repeated in a kind of sing-song.

I was puzzled. `Say the words,' said the Ape Man, repeating, and
the figures in the doorway echoed this with a threat in the tone of
their voices. I realised I had to repeat this idiotic formula. And then
began the insanest ceremony. The voice in the dark began intoning a mad
litany, line by line, and I and the rest to repeat it. As they did so,
they swayed from side to side, and beat their hands upon their knees,
and I followed their example. I could have imagined I was already dead
and in another world. The dark hut, these grotesque dim figures, just
flicked here and there by a glimmer of light, and all of them swaying
in unison and chanting:

`Not to go on all-Fours; that is the Law. Are we not Men?'

`Not to suck up Drink; that is the Law. Are we not Men?'

`Not to eat Flesh or Fish; that is the Law. Are we not Men?'

`Not to claw Bark of Trees; that is the Law. Are we not Men?'

`Not to chase other Men; that is the Law. Are we not Men?'

And so from the prohibition of these acts of folly, on to the prohibition
of what I thought then were the maddest, most impossible and most indecent
things one could well imagine. A kind of rhythmic fervour fell on all of
us; we gabbled and swayed faster and faster, repeating this amazing law.
Superficially the contagion of these brute men was upon me, but deep down
within me laughter and disgust struggled together. We ran through a long
list of prohibitions, and then the chant swung round to a new formula:

`His is the House of Pain.

`His is the Hand that makes.

`His is the Hand that wounds.

`His is the Hand that heals.'

And so on for another long series, mostly quite incomprehensible gibberish
to me, about Him, whoever he might be. I could have fancied it was a
dream, but never before have I heard chanting in a dream.

`His is the lightning-flash,' we sang. `His is the deep salt sea.'

A horrible fancy came into my head that Moreau, after animalising
these men, had infected their dwarfed brains with a kind of deification
of himself. However, I was too keenly aware of white teeth and strong
claws about me to stop my chanting on that account. `His are the stars
in the sky.'

At last that song ended. I saw the Ape Man's face shining with
perspiration, and my eyes being now accustomed to the darkness, I saw more
distinctly the figure in the corner from which the voice came. It was
the size of a man, but it seemed covered with a dull grey hair almost
like a Skye terrier. What was it? What were they all? Imagine yourself
surrounded by all the most horrible cripples and maniacs it is possible
to conceive, and you may understand a little of my feelings with these
grotesque caricatures of humanity about me.

`He is a five-man, a five-man, a five-man... like me,' said the Ape Man.

I held out my hands. The grey creature in the corner leant forward.
`Not to run on all-Fours; that is the Law. Are we not Men?' he said.
He put out a strangely distorted talon, and gripped my fingers. The thing
was almost like the hoof of a deer produced into claws. I could have
yelled with surprise and pain. His face came forward and peered at my
nails, came forward into the light of the opening of the hut, and I saw
with a quivering disgust that it was like the face of neither man nor
beast, but a mere shock of grey hair, with three shadowy overarchings
to mark the eyes and mouth.

`He has little nails,' said this grisly creature in his hairy beard.
`It is well. Many are troubled with big nails.'

He threw my hand down, and instinctively I gripped my stick. `Eat roots
and herbs -- it is His will,' said the Ape Man.

`I am the Sayer of the Law,' said the grey figure. `Here come all that
be new, to learn the Law. I sit in the darkness and say the Law.'

`It is even so,' said one of the beasts in the doorway.

`Evil are the punishments of those who break the Law. None escape.'

`None escape,' said the Beast folk, glancing furtively at each other.

`None, none,' said the Ape Man. `None escape. See! I did a little thing,
a wrong thing once. I jabbered, jabbered, stopped talking. None could
understand. I am burnt, branded in the hand. He is great, he is good!'

`None escape, said the great creature in the corner.

`None escape, said the Beast People, looking askance at one another.

`For every one the want that is bad,' said the grey Sayer of the Law.
`What you will want, we do not know. We shall know. Some want to follow
things that move, to watch and slink and wait and spring, to kill and
bite, bite deep and rich, sucking the blood.... It is bad. "Not to chase
other Men; that is the Law. Are we not Men? Not to eat Flesh nor Fish;
that is the Law. Are we not Men?"'

`None escape, said a dappled brute standing in the doorway.

`For every one the want that is bad,' said the grey Sayer of the Law.
`Some want to go tearing with teeth and hands into the roots of things,
snuffing into the earth.... It is bad.'

`None escape, said the men in the door.

`Some go clawing trees, some go scratching at the graves of the dead;
some go fighting with foreheads or feet or claws; some bite suddenly,
none giving occasion; some love uncleanness.'

`None escape,' said the Ape Man, scratching his calf.

`None escape,' said the little pink sloth creature.

`Punishment is sharp and sure. Therefore learn the Law. Say the words,'
and incontinently he began again the strange litany of the Law, and
again I and all these creatures began singing and swaying. My head
reeled with this jabbering and the close stench of the place, but I
kept on, trusting to find presently some chance of a new development.
`Not to go on all-Fours; that is the Law. Are we not Men?'

Elevation








Above the ponds, above the valleys,
Mountains, woods, clouds, and seas,
Beyond the sun, beyond the heavens,
Beyond the confines of starry spheres,




My spirit, you roam with agility,
And, like a good swimmer bracing the waves,
You soar happily into profound immensity
With exquisite male delight.




Fly, far away from these noxious surroundings;
And cleanse yourself in the pure air above,
And drink, the clear fire that fills lucid spaces,
As you would a pure and divine liqueur.




Behind the nuisances, and the vast chagrins
Amassing with their weight our bewildered existence,
Happy is he who can with a vigorous wing
Propel towards the luminous and serene realms;



He whose thoughts, like larks,
Free, in the morning take flight,
— Hover over life, and understand with ease
The language of flowers and silent things!

Burzum - Tour Around The Transcendental Columns Of Singularity

"The well of the region is no longer a dark depth, in which we stare, but a living stream, that fertilely flows through the lands of the North. Yes, to the highest visions of essence, this life can now elevate itself into development of it's true power and particularity, elevated to the father of all, who is up high in Valhalla, to him, the true god..."
(Johan Sebastian Cammermeyer Welhaven)

Burzum - In The Castle Of The Dream

Between misty vales
Between gloomy mountains
Under gray clouds
In the black night
On a proud horse
In black clothes
Strong weapons at hand
The infinity with dead trees
An eternity of cold
Over stone and wood
In the shadows...
Out from the mist
Out from darkness
Out from the big shadows of the mountain
The castle of the dream...
So ends the ride
That lasted a lifetime
For the master goes (in the castle of the dream)

Infinite





These solitary hills have always been dear to me.
Seated here, this sweet hedge, which blocks the distant horizon opening inner silences and interminable distances.
I plunge in thought to where my heart, frightened, pulls back.
Like the wind which I hear tossing the trembling plants which surround me, a voice from the inner depths of spirit shakes the certitudes of thought.
Eternity breaks through time, past and present intermingle in her image.
In the inner shadows I lose myself,
drowning in the sea-depths of timeless love.

If I Could Tell You



Time will say nothing; but I told you so,
Time only knows the price we have to pay;
If I could tell you I would let you know.


If we should weep when clowns put on their show,
If we should stumble when musicians play,
Time will say nothing but I told you so.


There are no fortunes to be told, although,
Because I love you more than I can say,
If I could tell you I would let you know.


The winds must come from somewhere when they blow,
There must be reasons why the leaves decay;
Time will say nothing but I told you so.


Perhaps the roses really want to grow,
The vision seriously intends to stay;
If I could tell you I would let you know.


Suppose the lions all get up and go,
And all the brooks and soldiers run away;
Will Time say nothing but I told you so?
If I could tell you I would let you know.

I wandered lonely as a cloud



I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

The North Ship


I saw three ships go sailing by,
Over the sea, the lifting sea,
And the wind rose in the morning sky,
And one was rigged for a long journey.

The first ship turned towards the west,
Over the sea, the running sea,
And by the wind was all possessed
And carried to a rich country.

The second ship turned towards the east,
Over the sea, the quaking sea,
And the wind hunted it like a beast
To anchor in captivity.

The third ship drove towards the north,
Over the sea, the darkening sea,
But no breath of wind came forth,
And the decks shone frostily.

The northern sky rose high and black
Over the proud unfruitful sea,
East and west the ships came back
Happily or unhappily:

But the third went wide and far
Into an unforgiving sea
Under a fire-spilling star,
And it was rigged for a long journey.

My Warrior Boy

Thou hast gone forth, my darling one,
To battle with the brave,
To strike in Freedom's sacred cause,
Or win an early grave:
With vet'rans grim, and stalwart men,
Thy pathway lieth now,
Though fifteen summers scare have shed
Their blossoms on thy brow.

My babe in years, my warrior boy!
Oh, if a mother's tears
Could call thee back to be my joy
And still these anxious fears,
I'd dash the traitor drops away,
That would unnerve thy hand,
Now raised to strike in Freedom's cause
For thy dear native land.

God speed thee on thy course, my boy,
Where'er thy pathway lie,
And guard thee when the leaden hail
Shall thick around thee fly;
But when our sacred cause is won,
And peace again shall reign,
Come back to me, my darling son,
And light my life again.

Rhapsody of a Windy Night




Twelve o'clock.
Along the reaches of the street
Held in a lunar synthesis,
Whispering lunar incantations
Disolve the floors of memory
And all its clear relations,
Its divisions and precisions,
Every street lamp that I pass
Beats like a fatalistic drum,
And through the spaces of the dark
Midnight shakes the memory
As a madman shakes a dead geranium.
Half-past one,
The street lamp sputtered,
The street lamp muttered,
The street lamp said,
"Regard that woman
Who hesitates toward you in the light of the door
Which opens on her like a grin.
You see the border of her dress
Is torn and stained with sand,
And you see the corner of her eye
Twists like a crooked pin."

The memory throws up high and dry
A crowd of twisted things;
A twisted branch upon the beach
Eaten smooth, and polished
As if the world gave up
The secret of its skeleton,
Stiff and white.
A broken spring in a factory yard,
Rust that clings to the form that the strength has left
Hard and curled and ready to snap.
Half-past two,
The street-lamp said,
"Remark the cat which flattens itself in the gutter,
Slips out its tongue
And devours a morsel of rancid butter."
So the hand of the child, automatic,
Slipped out and pocketed a toy that was running along
the quay.
I could see nothing behind that child's eye.
I have seen eyes in the street
Trying to peer through lighted shutters,
And a crab one afternoon in a pool,
An old crab with barnacles on his back,
Gripped the end of a stick which I held him.

Half-past three,
The lamp sputtered,
The lamp muttered in the dark.

The lamp hummed:
"Regard the moon,
La lune ne garde aucune rancune,
She winks a feeble eye,
She smiles into corners.
She smooths the hair of the grass.
The moon has lost her memory.
A washed-out smallpox cracks her face,
Her hand twists a paper rose,
That smells of dust and old Cologne,
She is alone With all the old nocturnal smells
That cross and cross across her brain.
The reminiscence comes
Of sunless dry geraniums
And dust in crevices,
Smells of chestnuts in the streets
And female smells in shuttered rooms
And cigarettes in corridors
And cocktail smells in bars."
The lamp said,
"Four o'clock,
Here is the number on the door.
Memory!
You have the key,
The little lamp spreads a ring on the stair,
Mount.
The bed is open; the tooth-brush hangs on the wall,
Put your shoes at the door, sleep, prepare for life."

The last twist of the knife.

Men are simple things. They can survive a whole weekend with only three things: beer, boxer shorts and batteries for the remote control.

I think men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage. They've experienced pain and bought jewelry.

I haven't reported my missing credit card to the police because whoever stole it is spending less than my wife.

How do you write woman so well? - I think of a man and I take away reason and accountability. - from the movie "As good as it gets".

A woman knows she's wearing the right dress, when her man wants to take it off.

You are not permitted to kill a woman who has wronged you, but nothing forbids you to reflect that she is growing older every minute. You are avenged 1440 times a day.

I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back.

If women didn't exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning.

I date this girl for two years, and then the nagging starts: 'I wanna know your name!'

Women complain about premenstrual syndrome, but I think of it as the only time of the month that I can be myself.

Now that women are jockeys, baseball umpires, atomic scientists, and business executives, maybe someday they can master parallel parking.

A helping hand brings you closer to a secret goal.
Stay calm, cool, and collected, and all things will fall into place.
Accept the next proposition you hear.
Wherever you go, there you are.
Behind an able man there are always other able men.
As we advance in life, we learn the limits of our abilities.
Ability is of little account without opportunity.
They are able because they think they are able.
A wise mine knows everything; a shrewd one, everybody.
If a man is worth knowing at all, he is worth knowing well.
Do well and right, and let the world sink.
He that is overcautious will accomplish little.

The Last Ride Together






I said -- Then, dearest, since 'tis so,
Since now at length my fate I know,
Since nothing all my love avails,
Since all my life seemed meant for fails,
Since this was written and needs must be --
My whole heart rises up to bless
Your name in pride and thankfulness!
Take back the hope you gave, I claim
Only a memory of the same
-- And this beside, if you will not blame,
Your leave for one more last ride with me.



My mistress bent that brow of hers;
Those deep dark eyes where pride demurs
When pity would be softening through,
Fixed me with a breathing while or two
With life or death in the balance: right!
The blood replenished me again;
My last thought was at least not in vain:
I an my mistress, side by side
Shall be together, breathe and ride,
So one day more am I deified.
Who knows but the world may end tonight?



Hush! If you saw some western cloud
All billowy-bosomed, overbowed
By many benedictions -- sun's
And moon's and evening star's at once --
And so, you, looking and loving best,
Conscious grew, your passion drew
Cloud, sunset, moonrise, star-shine too,
Down on you, near and yet more near,
Till flesh must fade for heaven was here! --
Thus leant she and lingered -- joy and fear!
Thus lay she a moment on my breast.



Then we began to ride. My soul
Smoothed itself out, a long-cramped scroll
Freshening and fluttering in the wind.
Past hopes already lay behind.
What need to strive with a life awry?
Had I said that, had I done this,
So might I gain, so might I miss.
Might she have loved me? just as well
She might have hated, who can tell!
Where had I been now if the worst befell?
And here we are riding, she and I.



Fail I alone, in words and deeds?
Why, all men strive and who succeeds?
We rode; it seemed my spirit flew,
Saw other regions, cities new,
As the world rushed by on either side.
I thought, -- Al labour, yet no less
Bear up beneath their unsuccess.
Look at the end of work, contrast
The petty done, the undone vast,
This present of theirs with the hopeful past!
I hoped she would love me; here we ride.



What hand and brain went ever paired?
What heart alike conceived and dared?
What acr proved all its thought had been?
What will but felt the fleshly screen?
We ride and I see her bosom heave.
There's many a crown for who can reach.
Ten lines, a statesman's life in each!
The flag stuck on a heap of bones,
A soldier's doing! what atones?
They scratch his name on the Abbey-stones.
My riding is better, by their leave.



What does it all mean, poet? Well,
Your brains beat into rhythm, you tell
What we felt only; you expressed
You hold things beautiful the best,
And pace them in rhyme so, side by side.
' Tis something, nay 'tis much: but then,
Have you yourself what's best for men?
Are you -- poor, sick, old ere your time --
Nearer one whit your own sublime
Than we who never turned a rhyme?
Sing, riding's a joy! For me, I ride.



And you, great sculptor -- so you gave
A score of years to Art, her slave,
And that's your Venus, whence we turn
To yonder girl that fords the burn!
You acquiesce, and shall I repine?
What, man of music, you grown grey
With notes, and nothing else to say,
Is this your sole praise from a friend,
'Greatly his opera's strains intend,
'But in music we know how fashions end!'
I gave my youth; but we ride, in fine.



Who knows what's fit for us? Had fate
Proposed bliss here should sublimate
My being -- had I signed the bond --
Still one must lead some life beyond,
Have a bliss to die with, dim-descried.
This foot once planted on the goal,
This glory-garland round my soul,
Could I descry such? Try and test!
I sink back shuddering from the quest.
Earth being so good, would heaven seem best?
Now, heaven and she are beyond this ride.



And yet -- she had not spoken so long!
What if heaven be that, fair and strong
At life's best, with our eyes upturned
Whither life's flower is first discerned,
We, fixed so, ever should so abide?
What if we still ride on, we two
With life for ever old yet new,
Changed not in kind but in degree
The instant made eternity, --
And heaven just prove that I and she
Ride, ride together, for ever ride?

A lawyer must first get on, then get honor, and then get honest.
A lawyer's opinion is worth nothing unless paid for.
Good luck is a lazy amn's estimate of a worker's success.
A good memory is needed once we have lied.
Men make laws; women make manners.
Politeness goes far; yet costs nothing.
God heals and the doctor takes the fee.
Misfortunes always come in by a door that has been left open for them.
Modesty is the only sure bait when you angle for praise.

Echo



Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
As sunlight on a stream;
Come back in tears,
O memory, hope and love of finished years.
O dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter-sweet,
Whose wakening should have been in Paradise,
Where souls brim-full of love abide and meet;
Where thirsting longing eyes
Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.

Yet come to me in dreams, that I may live
My very life again though cold in death;
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago.

Good humor is goodness and wisdon combined.
He that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.
Gratitude is the heart's memory.
No man ever yet became great by imitation.
Habits are at first cobwebs, then cables.
The first wealth is health.
Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
What is history but a fable agreed upon?
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
Hope is the poor man's bread.
An empty stomach is not a good political advisor.
Hypocrisy is the homage which vice renders to virtue.
Lost time is never found again.
Imagination is the eye of the soul.
Few things are impossible to diligence and skill.
Innocence finds not near so much protection as guilt.
It is often better not to see an insult than to avenge it.
Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.
Forbear to judge, for we are sinners all.
Kindness gives birth to kindness.
He that hath knowledge spareth his words.
We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
Laws grind the poor, and rich men rule the law.
The laws sometimes sleep, but never die.
Where law ends, there tyranny begins.

PRELUDES


I
The winter evening settles down
With smell of steaks in passageways.
Six o'clock.
The burnt-out ends of smoky days.
And now a gusty shower wraps
The grimy scraps
Of withered leaves about your feet
And newspapers from vacant lots;
The showers beat
On broken blinds and chimney-pots,
And at the corner of the street
A lonely cab-horse steams and stamps.
And then the lighting of the lamps.

II
The morning comes to consciousness
Of faint stale smells of beer
>From the sawdust-trampled street
With all its muddy feet that press
To early coffee-stands.
With the other masquerades
That time resumes,
One thinks of all the hands
That are raising dingy shades
In a thousand furnished rooms.

III
You tossed a blanket from the bed,
You lay upon your back, and waited;
You dozed, and watched the night revealing
The thousand sordid images
Of which your soul was constituted;
They flickered against the ceiling.
And when all the world came back
And the light crept up between the shutters,
And you heard the sparrows in the gutters,
You had such a vision of the street
As the street hardly understands;
Sitting along the bed's edge, where
You curled the papers from your hair,
Or clasped the yellow soles of feet
In the palms of both soiled hands.

IV
His soul stretched tight across the skies
That fade behind a city block,
Or trampled by insistent feet
At four and five and six o'clock
And short square fingers stuffing pipes,
And evening newspapers, and eyes
Assured of certain certainties,
The conscience of a blackened street
Impatient to assume the world.
I am moved by fancies that are curled
Around these images, and cling:
The notion of some infinitely gentle
Infinitely suffering thing.
Wipe your hand across your mouth, and laugh;
The worlds revolve like ancient women
Gathering fuel in vacant lots.

My hunger is not simply to be satisfied - more food :D :P



Whoever serves his country well has no need of ancestors.
Men often make up in wrath what they want in reason.
Anger makes dull men witty, but it keeps them poor.
An angry man opens his mouth and shuts up his eyes.
Never answer a letter while you are angry.
Beware the fury of a patient man.
Many can argue; not many converse.
Wise men argue causes, and fools decide them.
Strong and bitter words indicate a weak cause.
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise.
It's a bad bargain where nobody gains.
Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.
Better a living beggar than a buried emperor.
Borrowing is not much better than begging.
Well begun is half done.
Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear.
A man must not swallow more beliefs than he can digest.
In the country of the blind the one-eyed man is king.
If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Laws die, Books never.
Debt is a bottomless sea.

To Whom It May Concern




Your soul is a dead chicken lying on a city dump,
Inert and limp and sprawling,
Amid a rotten chaos of inassortable remnants,
Of rain-soaked whisky-cartons and soiled brassieres and worn-out tires and Sunday suits full of defunct moths
And maybe a blue box or two
Labeled Kotex.



Pegasus will shun your proximity,
All the golden wyverns will avoid you,
Veering to other skies and more savory systems,
And hippogriffs will never come to nuzzle you
With purple-spotted noses of nacarat and cyanine:
Even the ghouls will sniff and pass you by. . . .
But rats will come. . . .

Is not necessarily by Thorsborne
Or for that matter Keats or Shelley
Or Edgar Allan Poe
It might not be amongst the
Dusty books there on the shelf
The greatest poem you ever read
May just be written by yourself

Did you ever write a poem?
That just made you softly sigh
Or was there one that emotion
Made you bittersweetly cry
Is there one that was born to you?
That made you wholly believe
Words weren't born long time ago
You yourself can conceive

This poem that I am writing
Is not the best there ever was
But few poems can do for me
What my own poetry does
When you think of Percey Shelly
And when you think of ole John Keats
Remember theirs is their own
Even if
You wish to match their feats

I hope the poetry you respect
From which have made you grown
I hope the greatest poem you ever read
Was one you call your own

Voices of the Air




But then there comes that moment rare
When, for no cause that I can find,
The little voices of the air
Sound above all the sea and wind.

The sea and wind do then obey
And sighing, sighing double notes
Of double basses, content to play
A droning chord for the little throats --

The little throats that sing and rise
Up into the light with lovely ease
And a kind of magical, sweet surprise
To hear and know themselves for these --

For these little voices: the bee, the fly,
The leaf that taps, the pod that breaks,
The breeze on the grass-tops bending by,
The shrill quick sound that the insect makes.

The borrower is servant to the lender.
None but the brave deserves the fair.
Let thy speech be short, comprehending much in few words.
The fewer the words, the better prayer.
Brevity is the soul of wit.
The universe would not be rich enough to buy the vote of an honest man.
Carelessness does more harm than a want of knowledge.
Hasten slowly.
Be slow of tongue and quick of eye.
The cautious seldom err.
Caution is the eldest child of wisdom.
You must look into people as well as at them.
Human improvement is from within outward.
As the purse is emptied the heart is filled.
He who sings frightens away his ills.
There's small choice in rotten apples.

Epilogue from H.G.Wells' The Time Machine :


ONE cannot choose but wonder. Will he ever return? It may be that he swept back into the past, and fell among the blood-drinking, hairy savages of the Age of Unpolished Stone; into the abysses of the Cretaceous Sea; or among the grotesque saurians, the huge reptilian brutes of the Jurassic times. He may even now—if I may use the phrase—be wandering on some plesiosaurus-haunted Oolitic coral reef, or beside the lonely saline lakes of the Triassic Age. Or did he go forward, into one of the nearer ages, in which men are still men, but with the riddles of our own time answered and its wearisome problems solved? Into the manhood of the race: for I, for my own part cannot think that these latter days of weak experiment, fragmentary theory, and mutual discord are indeed man’s culminating time! I say, for my own part. He, I know—for the question had been discussed among us long before the Time Machine was made—thought but cheerlessly of the Advancement of Mankind, and saw in the growing pile of civilization only a foolish heaping that must inevitably fall back upon and destroy its makers in the end. If that is so, it remains for us to live as though it were not so. But to me the future is still black and blank—is a vast ignorance, lit at a few casual places by the memory of his story. And I have by me, for my comfort, two strange white flowers—shrivelled now, and brown and flat and brittle—to witness that even when mind and strength had gone, gratitude and a mutual tenderness still lived on in the heart of man.

Common sense is very uncommon.
The usual fotune of complaint is to excite contempt more than pity.
Better bend than break.
Be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.
Self-conquest is the greatest of victories.
The less men think, the more they talk.
God sends meat, and the Devil sends cooks.
The more corrupt the state, the more laws.
Often the test of courage is not to die but to live.
No man's credit is as good as his money.
Even the lion has to defend himself against flies.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
All cruelty springs from weakness.
Other times, other customs.
Custom is the law of fools.
We triumph without glory when we conquer without danger.
Who dares nothing, need hope for nothing.
He that dies pays all debts.
Debt is the worst poverty.
Noble deeds that are concealed are most esteemed.
He whoe desires naught will always be free.

Despair is the conclusion of fools.
The best way out of difficulty is through it.
Disappointment is the nurse of wisdom.
Discontent is the first step in the progress of a man or a nation.
Discretion in speech is more than elegance.
No one can disgrace us but ourselves.
When in doubt, win the trick.
Water is the only drink for a wise man.
Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.
Thou shouldst eat to live; not live to eat.
He who will not economize will have to agonize.
None but yourself who are your greatest foe.
A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
It is better to be envied than pitied.
To stumble twice against the same stone is a proverbial disgrace.
An error gracefully acknowledged is a victory won.
The man who makes no mistakes does not usually make anything.
Error will slip through a crack, while truth will stick in a doorway.
Coming events cast their shadows before.
Evil often triumphs, but never conquers.
Example is more efficacious than precept.
Experience is the extract of suffering.
The shoemaker makes a good shoe because he makes nothing else.
Faith is the continuation of reason.
Faith is the force of life.
Fanme is the perfume of heroic deeds.
We make our fortunes and call them fate.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.
It is easy to flatter; it is harder to praise.
Answer a fool according to his folly.
A fool always finds one still more foolish to admire him.
Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise.
A fool's bolt is soon shot.
Forethought we may have, undoubtedly, but not foresight.
Good, to forgive; best, to forget.
Forgive others often, yourself never.
Every man is the architect of his own fortune.
Prosperity makes friends and adversity tries them.
The only way to have a friend is to be one.
There is no great genius without a mixture of madness.
Genius is only great patience.
Genius does what it must, and talent does what it can.
The lamp of genius burns quicker than the lamp of life.
Fear that man who fears not God.

The Voice




Woman much missed, how you call to me, call to me,
Saying that now you are not as you were
When you had changed from the one who was all to
me,
But as at first, when our day was fair.

Can it be you that I hear? Let me view you, then,
Standing as when I drew near to the town
Where you would wait for me: yes, as I knew you
then,
Even to the original air-blue gown!

Or is it only the breeze, in its listlessness
Travelling across the wet mead to me here,
You being ever dissolved to wan wistlessness,
Heard no more again far or near?

Thus I; faltering forward,
Leaves around me falling,
Wind oozing thin through the thorn from norward,
And the woman calling.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.


Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist.


Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.


A chief event of life is the day in which we have encountered a mind that startled us.


There are always two parties; the establishment and the movement.

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesman and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do.


What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.


The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship.


There is then creative reading as well as creative writing.

My Heart is Lame




My heart is lame with running after yours so fast
Such a long way,
Shall we walk slowly home, looking at all the things we passed
Perhaps to-day?

Home down the quiet evening roads under the quiet skies,
Not saying much,
You for a moment giving me your eyes
When you could bear my touch.

But not to-morrow. This has taken all my breath;
Then, though you look the same,
There may be something lovelier in Love's face in death
As your heart sees it, running back the way we came;
My heart is lame.

Most of the luxuries and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.

In any weather, at any hour of the day or night, I have been anxious to improve the nick of time, and notch it on my stick too; to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and the future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line.

So behave that the odor of your actions may enhance the general sweetness of the atmosphere, that when we behold or scent a flower, we may not be reminded how inconsistent your deeds are with it; for all odor is but one form of advertisement of a moral quality, and if fair actions had not been performed, the lily would not smell sweet. The foul slime stands for the sloth and vice of man, the decay of humanity; the fragrant flower that springs from it, for the purity and courage which are immortal.

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.

As for Doing-good, that is one of the professions which are full.

As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.

I learned this, at least, by my experiment;
that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams,
and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined,
he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.


If you have built castles in the air,
your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.
Now put the foundations under them.

Constable:

O, hell!

Orléans:

O Lord, the day is lost! All is lost!

Dauphin:

Dear God! All is lost, all! Regret and everlasting shame sit on our helmets, mocking us.

A brief blast of battle noises.

What stinking luck! Do not run away.

Constable:

Our men have all broken ranks.

Dauphin:

O, everlasting shame! Let's fall on our swords. Are these the wretches that we threw dice for?

Orléans:

Is this the king we offered to ransom?

Bourbon:

Shame, eternal shame, and nothing but shame! Let us die honorably. Back into the fray once again! He who will not follow me now, let him depart and stand in the doorway like a pimp, cap in hand, while some slave, no nobler than my dog, violates his daughter.

Constable:

Maybe we can benefit from the same chaos that has defeated us. Let's go offer up our lives en masse.

Orléans:

There are enough of us still alive in the field to overcome the English with our numbers if we could just restore some kind of order.

Bourbon:

The hell with order! I'm going back into battle. Let life be short so that shame won't last too long.

Alone and Drinking Under the Moon




Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
the three of us; then I sigh
for the moon cannot drink,



and my shadow goes emptily along
with me never saying a word;
with no other friends here, I can
but use these two for company;
in the time of happiness, I
too must be happy with all
around me; I sit and sing
and it is as if the moon



accompanies me; then if I
dance, it is my shadow that
dances along with me; while
still not drunk, I am glad
to make the moon and my shadow
into friends, but then when
I have drunk too much, we
all part; yet these are



friends I can always count on
these who have no emotion
whatsoever; I hope that one day
we three will meet again,
deep in the Milky Way.

W. H. Murray, The Scottish Himalaya Expedition, 1951.

'But when I said that nothing had been done I erred in one important matter. We had definitely committed ourselves and were halfway out of our ruts. We had put down our passage money--booked a sailing to Bombay. This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence. Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets:

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!'

"[T]here is no such thing as man in the world. During my life, I have seen Frenchmen, Italians, Russians, and so on; thanks to Montesquieu, I even know that one can be Persian; but I must say, as for man, I have never come across him anywhere; if he exists, he is completely unknown to me."

"Humanity will live a full life only when each nation develops on its own principles and brings from itself to the common sum of life some particularly develop aspect. Perhaps only then, too, may we dream of the full pan-human ideal."
--Fyoder Dostoevsky

"The more global and uniform our civilization, the more people want to anchor themselves in their own culture."
--Hans Mangnus Enzensberger

"Now my soul is incarnate in my country,
my body has swallowed her soul,
and I and my country are one.
My name is millions, for I love and suffer for millions."
--Adam Mickiewicz, "the Great Improvisation"

"Understand me: a voluntary, totally conscious sacrifice of oneself in the interests of all, made under no sort of compulsion, is in my opinion a sign of highest development of the personality. Voluntarily to sacrifice one's life for all, to die on the cross or at the stakes, is possible only with the very strongest development of the personality."
--Fyodr Dostoevsky

"All normal men have received their civilization through their citizenship; and to lose their past would be to lose their link to mankind...nations have not always been seals or stoppers closing up the ancient wine of the world; they have been the vessels that received it. And, as with many ancient vessels, each of them is a work of art."
--GK Chesterton

"Nations do not throw aside their ancient customs as people do their old clothes. Some part of them maybe discarded; but there will remain a portion, which with the new manners will form a very strange mixture."

But to establish its cause upon nothing and yet not to burn all bridges behind it: that is the nobility of character of the National Socialist era.

From education by the Church to education by Germanic value is a step of several generations.

How can we still speak of the salvation and reformation of Europe, when we have to ask Europe's destroyer for help?

I have the feeling that this Moscow Pact will at some time or other exact vengeance upon National Socialism.

I would adopt a standpoint, irrespective of whether someone was for or against it, if I felt deeply that it was right for the movement.

Life drew me and I followed it.

National Socialism stands or falls by its Weltanschauung.

Racial history is therefore natural history and the mysticism of the soul at one and the same time; but the history of the religion of the blood, conversely, is the great world story of the rise and downfall of peoples, their heroes and thinkers, their inventors and artists.

The belief, incarnate with the most lucid knowledge, that Nordic blood represents that mystery which has replaced and overcome the old sacraments.

The German people is not marked by original sin, but by original nobility.

To destroy images is something every revolution has been able to do.

Today a new faith is stirring: the myth of blood, the faith that along with blood we are defending the divine nature of man as a whole.

We are the conquerors of one era and the founders of a new - also religious - epoch.

We are the transition from one education to the other.

"Kind-hearted people might of course think there was some ingenious way to disarm or defeat an enemy without too much bloodshed, and might imagine this is the true goal of the art of war. Pleasant as it sounds, it is a fallacy that must be exposed: war is such a dangerous business that mistakes which come from kindness are the very worst."

"A state without a Volk is nothing, a lifeless frivolous phantom like the vagabond gypsies and Jews."
-Friedrich Ludwig Jahn

"Every nation has the government it deserves."
-Joseph de Maistre, 1811

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
-C.S. Lewis

"I feel myself always the patriot of all oppressed fatherlands. . . Nationality. . . is a historic, local fact which, like all real and harmless facts, has the right to claim general acceptance. . . Every people, like every person, is involuntarily that which it is and therefore has a right to be itself. . . Nationality is not a principle; it is a legitimate fact, just as individuality is. Every nationality, great or small, has the incontestable right to be itself, to live according to its own nature. This right is simply the corollary of the general principal of freedom."
-Mikhail Bukunin

Cautionary advice some of our current war-mongering leaders(especially their lip-service pundits) should pay heed to.

"Unless endangered do not engage in warfare. The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger. The general cannot engage in battle because of personal frustration. When it is advantageous, move; when not advantageous, stop. Anger can revert to happiness, annoyance can revert to joy, but a vanquished state cannot be revived, the dead cannot be brought back to life."

The more corrupt the state, the more it legislates.
– Tacitus


Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.
– Henry David Thorsborne


In order to get power and retain it, it is necessary to love power; but love of power is not connected with goodness but with qualities that are the opposite of goodness, such as pride, cunning, and cruelty.
– Leo Tolstoy


No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the sources of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed, and love of power.
– P. J. O'Rourke


Ask not what you can do for your country; ask what your government is doing to you.

Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the State becomes lawless or, which is the same thing, corrupt.

Any fool can make a rule, and every fool will mind it.
– Cousin Woodman


If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.
– George Orwell


"For your own good" is a persuasive argument that will eventually make a man agree to his own destruction.
– Janet Frame


Heresy is only another word for freedom of thought.
– Graham Greene


No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore our belief in our own guidance.
– Henry Miller


Political correctness is tyranny with manners.
– Charlton Heston


Don't be afraid to take a big step when one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small steps.
– David Lloyd George


I decide whether it is the right thing in me; there is no right outside me. If it is right for me, it is right. Possibly this may not suffice to make it right for the rest; that is their care, not mine: let them defend themselves. And if for the whole world something were not right, but it were right for me, that is, I wanted it, then I would ask nothing about the whole world. So every one does who knows how to value himself, every one in the degree that he is an egoist; for might goes before right, and that - with perfect right.

You can have power over people as long as you don't take everything away from them. But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power.
- Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion.
- Oscar Wilde


Under a tyranny, most friends are a liability. One quarter of them turn reasonable and become your enemies. One quarter are afraid to stop and speak. And one quarter are killed and you die with them. The blessed final quarter keep you alive.
- Sinclair Lewis


Each of you, for himself, by himself and on his own responsibility, must speak. And it is a solemn and weighty responsibility, and not lightly to be flung aside at the bullying of pulpit, press, government, or the empty catchphrases of politicians. Each must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, and which course is patriotic and which isn’t. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your convictions is to be an unqualified and inexcusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let man label you as they may. If you alone of all the nation shall decide one way, and that way be the right way according to your convictions of the right, you have done your duty by yourself and by your country- hold up your head! You have nothing to be ashamed of.
- Mark Twain

The principal value of a garden is not understood. It is not to give the possessors vegetables and fruit (that can be better and cheaper done by the market-gardeners), but to teach him patience and philosophy, and the higher virtues - hope deferred, and expectations blighted, leading directly to resignation, and sometimes to alienation. - Charles Dudley Warner

To these delights of a garden, age may add a further interest which can hardly be distinguished from beauty, for the mind, at least with those who have the historic instinct, is always longing to be connected with the past, and dreading for itself confinement upon the plane of time, delights in evidences of the long continuance of nations, families and institutions, in hale and vigorous old age, in long-settled peace beyond the turn of Fortune's wheel, the 'scornful dominion of accident.' Restfulness is the prevailing note of an old garden; in this fairy world of echo and suggestion where the Present Age never comes but to commune with the Past, we feel the glamour of a Golden Age, of a state of society just and secure which has grown and blossomed as the rose. - Sir George Sitwell


To the attentive eye, each movement of the year has
it's own beauty, and in the fame field it beholds, every
hour, a picture which was never seen before
and which shall never be seen again.

The harmony of Truth, from wavering clear,--

Of Friendship that is free from doubting care,--

In my best hours I found in her all this,
And made mine own, to mine exceeding bliss.

“Modern man does not understand how much his ‘rationalism’ (which has destroyed his capacity to respond to numinous symbols and ideas) has put him at the mercy of the psychic ‘underworld’. He has freed himself from ‘superstition’ (or so he believes), but in the process he has lost his spiritual values to a positively dangerous degree. His moral and spiritual tradition has disintegrated, and he is now paying the price for this break-up in worldwide disorientation and dissociation.”

"The thought occurred to me: 'What if — on recognized, designated nights such as the eighth, fourteenth, & fifteenth of the lunar fortnight — I were to stay in the sort of places that are awe-inspiring and make your hair stand on end, such as park-shrines, forest-shrines, & tree-shrines? Perhaps I would get to see that fear & terror.' So at a later time — on recognized, designated nights such as the eighth, fourteenth, & fifteenth of the lunar fortnight — I stayed in the sort of places that are awe-inspiring and make your hair stand on end, such as park-shrines, forest-shrines, & tree-shrines. And while I was staying there a wild animal would come, or a bird would make a twig fall, or wind would rustle the fallen leaves. The thought would occur to me: 'Is this that fear & terror coming?' Then the thought occurred to me: 'Why do I just keep waiting for fear? What if I were to subdue fear & terror in whatever state they come?' So when fear & terror came while I was walking back & forth, I would not stand or sit or lie down. I would keep walking back & forth until I had subdued that fear & terror. When fear & terror came while I was standing, I would not walk or sit or lie down. I would keep standing until I had subdued that fear & terror. When fear & terror came while I was sitting, I would not lie down or stand up or walk. I would keep sitting until I had subdued that fear & terror. When fear & terror came while I was lying down, I would not sit up or stand or walk. I would keep lying down until I had subdued that fear & terror."

Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Arnold Schwarzenegger quotations, an influential thinker/think tank/politician you all probably heard of:

"As long as I live, I will never forget that day 21 years ago when I raised my hand and took the oath of citizenship. Do you know how proud I was? I was so proud that I walked around with an American flag around my shoulders all day long."

"Bodybuilding is much like any other sport. To be successful, you must dedicate yourself 100% to your training, diet and mental approach."

"As you know, I don't need to take any money from anybody."

"Failure is not an option. Everyone has to succeed."

"For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer."

"From the time they get up in the morning and flush the toilet, they're taxed. Then they go and get the cup of coffee, they're taxed....This goes on all day long. Tax, tax, tax."

"Government's first duty and highest obligation is public safety."

"Help others and give something back. I guarantee you will discover that while public service improves the lives and the world around you, its greatest reward is the enrichment and new meaning it will bring your own life."

"I am a big believer in education, because when I grew up in Austria - when I grew up in Austria I had a great education. I had great teachers."

"I have a love interest in every one of my films - a gun."

"I just use my muscles as a conversation piece, like someone walking a cheetah down 42nd Street."

"I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way - I hope it never will."

"I know a lot of athletes and models are written off as just bodies. I never felt used for my body."

"I think that gay marriage should be between a man and a woman."

"I welcome and seek your ideas, but do not bring me small ideas; bring me big ideas to match our future."

"I'll be back."

"If it's hard to remember, it'll be difficult to forget."

"Just last week I traveled with both of them to Washington to meet with the leaders in Congress, and we reminded them that California is at the tip of the spear of our nation's military capability, that we do it all."

"Last year we stopped the bleeding. This year we must heal the patient."

"Learned helplessness is the giving-up reaction, the quitting response that follows from the belief that whatever you do doesn't matter."

"Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer."

"Money doesn't make you happy. I now have $50 million but I was just as happy when I had $48 million."

"My body is like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't think about it, I just have it."

"My friend James Cameron and I made three films together - True Lies, The Terminator and Terminator 2. Of course, that was during his early, low-budget, art-house period."

"My own dreams fortunately came true in this great state. I became Mr. Universe; I became a successful businessman. And even though some people say I still speak with a slight accent, I have reached the top of the acting profession."

"My relationship to power and authority is that I'm all for it. People need somebody to watch over them. Ninety-five percent of the people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave."

"One of my movies was called "True Lies." It's what the Democrats should have called their convention."

"People are always making a fuss over my $15-20-million salaries. Believe me, the amount is meaningless once my wife, Maria, finds out about it. She's already spent half of my salary from Terminator 7!"

"Political courage is not political suicide."

"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."

"The biggest problem that we have is that California is being run now by special interests. All of the politicians are not anymore making the moves for the people, but for special interests and we have to stop that."

"The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens."

"The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent."

"The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I hate that."

"To restore the trust of the people, we must reform the way the government operates."

"To those critics who are so pessimistic about our economy, I say, Don't be economic girlie men!"

"We all have great inner power. The power is self-faith. There's really an attitude to winning. You have to see yourself winning before you win. And you have to be hungry. You have to want to conquer."

"We are a forward-looking people, and we must have a forward-looking government."

"We have to make sure everyone in California has a great job. A fantastic job!"

"What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn't think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know."

"When I was 15-years-old, I took off my clothes and looked in the mirror. When I stared at myself naked, I realized that to be perfectly proportioned I would need twenty-inch arms to match the rest of me."

"You can't tell a kid that it's time to exercise; that's a turn-off...you have to say 'Let's go to the park and have some fun.' Then you get them to do some running, play on the swings, practice on the balance beam, basically get a full workout disguised as play."

“I suppose I should have my say about the terrorist attacks (9/11). I don't suppose it'll be a popular point of view, but they need to be put into some sort of perspective. They were a horrible tragedy, but also what happened in New York and Washington is the same thing that England and America did to Berlin every day for three years during WW2 - and Germany did the same thing to England. But most Americans don't think about that. They think everything starts and finishes with America.”

--Alexander Ivanovich Retuinskih

These are from the Cossack Cadet Code:

If you are being taught - learn. There is no unnecessary (superfluous)
knowledge, everything will be of use for the Motherland’s benefit.

Don’t whimper! If it’s hard for you, it’s hard for everybody. Be merry, when
it’s tough.

Do not fuss. In order to do something fast, one has to do it calmly.

Know the regulations. In them is experience, the sweat and blood of your
grandfathers.

Be polite with older people, whoever they are. If you feel you are right -
argue your point calmly. Do not quarrel or wrangle with anybody - it debases
you.

The life of your friend is always more valuable than your own. You can die
yourself, but rescue your friend. [This is a virtue I especially hold dear]

A storm-age, a wolf-age, before the world crumbles.
No mercy or quarter will man give to man.

The bright stars fall from the skies;
Flames rage and fires leap high,
Heaven itself is seared by heat.

“The Emancipation Proclamation caused a desertion crisis in the United States Army. At least 200,000 Northern soldiers deserted; another 120,000 evaded conscription; and another 90,000 Northern men fled to Canada to evade the draft, while thousands more hid in the mountains of central Pennsylvania ‘where they lay beyond the easy reach of enrolling officers.’” ~ Gary Gallagher, The Confederate War

"Pride can make one blind from one time to another, both good and bad. It can give extremes against, good and blindness that makes one proceed to a dead end as not driven some place without turning around conscious of what they are driven by, an evil."

Alexis de Tocqueville

We succeed in enterprises which demand the positive qualities we possess, but we excel in those which can also make use of our defects.

When family pride ceases to act, individual selfishness comes into play.

Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.

America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.

In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end. Liberty cannot be established without morality, nor morality without faith.

Equality is a slogan based on envy. It signifies in the heart of every republican: 'Nobody is going to occupy a place higher than I'.

"When such a critic says, for instance, that faith kept the world in darkness until doubt led to enlightenment, he is himself taking things on faith, things that he has never been sufficiently enlightened to doubt. That exceedingly crude simplification of human history is what he has been taught, and he believes it because he has been taught. I do not blame him for that; I merely remark that he is an unconscious example of everything that he reviles." - G.K.Chesterton

The parties in this conflict are not merely Abolitionists and slaveholders, they are Atheists, Socialists, Communists, Red Republicans, Jacobins on one side and the friends of order and regulated freedom on the other. In one word, the world is the battleground, Christianity and Atheism the Combatants, and the progress of humanity the stake." James Henley Thornwell

We can conquer, and we must. We must not suffer any other thought to enter our minds. If we are overrun, we can at least die; and if our enemies get possession of our land, we can leave it a howling desert. But, under God, we shall not fail. If we are true to Him, and true to ourselves, a glorious future is before us. We occupy a sublime position. The eyes of the world are upon us; we are a spectacle to God, to angels, and to men. Can our hearts grow faint, or our hands feeble, in a cause like this? The spirits of our fathers call to us from their graves. The heroes of other ages and other countries are beckoning us on to glory.

They know that the people of the South were conquered, and not convinced; and that the authority of the United States was accepted by us from necessity, and not from preference......The people of the South went to war, because they sincerely believed (what their political fathers had taught them, with one voice, for two generations) that the doctrine of State-sovereignty for which they fought, was absolutely essential as the bulwark of the liberties of the people."

Your object is to subjugate the Southern States and the requisition made upon me for such a object–an object in my judgment not within the purview of the constitution or the act of 1795, will not be complied with.

"The people are to be awakened - that means that the people are asleep. People as a rule prefer to sleep. Awakenings are always bitter. So far as their daily interests are involved, what people would like is business as usual: everyday misery and humiliation as usual. People would like to overlook the fact that they are the people. It is a fact that, for good or ill, the great historical changes in political societies have been brought about by a few, who were convinced that they embodied the real will -yet to be awakened-of the people."

I do not forget that a Suwaroff triumphed and Kosciusko fell; that Nero wielded he scepter of an empire and a Paul was beheaded; that a Herod was crowned and Christ crucified; instead of accepting the defeat of the South as a divine verdict against her.

He no longer grows his own food, he no longer catches his own fish or meat, he no longer milks the cows or collects eggs, berries, nuts, fruit and sea shells from nature.

The Confederate soldiers were our kinfolk and our heroes. We testify to the country our enduring fidelity to their memory. We commemorate their valor and devotion. There were some things that were not surrendered at Appomattox. We did not surrender our rights in history, nor was it one of the conditions of surrender that unfriendly lips should be suffered to tell the story of that war or that unfriendly hands should write the epitaphs of the Confederate dead. We have a right to teach our children the true history of that war, the causes that led up to it, and the principles involved."

Perhaps you are at ease living in a gilded cage, built by the enemies of our nation, the Confederate States of America. Maybe there exists no moment in which you will make a stand for family, state and nation. The words Confederate and Southern are not interchangeable in their definitions, but are separate and distinct as to their meaning. While at the same time they are conjoined, so that an individual will be either both or neither. The title of Confederate and Southern are but two sides of a single coin, those who refuse to stand with us in achieving victory, should not enjoy its fruits once achieved." Haylen Greerson

"Most modern freedom is at root, fear. It is not so much that we are too bold to endure rules; it is rather that we are too timid to endure responsibilities."

"All normal men have received their civilization through their citizenship; and to lose their past would be to lose their link to mankind...nations have not always been seals or stoppers closing up the ancient wine of the world; they have been the vessels that received it. And, as with many ancient vessels, each of them is a work of art."

"A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it."

"Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions."

"Impartiality is a pompous name for indifference, which is an elegant name for ignorance."

"Among the rich you will never find a really generous man even by accident. They may give their money away, but they will never give themselves away; they are egotistic, secretive, dry as old bones. To be smart enough to get all that money you must be dull enough to want it."

"The simplification of anything is always sensational."

"Customs are generally unselfish. Habits are nearly always selfish."

"I believe what really happens in history is this: the old man is always wrong; and the young people are always wrong about what is wrong with him. The practical form it takes is this: that, while the old man may stand by some stupid custom, the young man always attacks it with some theory that turns out to be equally stupid."

"The center of every man's existence is a dream. Death, disease, insanity, are merely material accidents, like a toothache or a twisted ankle. That these brutal forces always besiege and often capture the citadel does not prove that they are the citadel."

"The person who is really in revolt is the optimist, who generally lives and dies in a desperate and suicidal effort to persuade other people how good they are."

"To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it."

"All the exaggerations are right, if they exaggerate the right thing."

"The comedy of man survives the tragedy of man."

"We have had no good comic operas of late, because the real world has been more comic than any possible opera."

"The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog."

"Aesthetes never do anything but what they are told."

"Faithful to the mission she has fulfilled for two millennia, however, the Church still holds out a moral alternative to young people immersed in a culture that relentlessly teaches them to pursue immediate gratification. The Church recalls the great men of Christendom - like Charlamenge, Saint Thomas Aquinas, Saint Francis of Assisi, and Saint Francis Xavier, to name a few - and holds them up as models for how true men live. Its message? Essentially this: you can aspire to be one of these men - a builder of civilization, a great genius, a servant of God and men, or a heroic missionary - or you can be a self-absorbed nobody fixated on gratifying your appetites. Our society does everything in its power to ensure that you wind up on the latter path. Be your own person.

ignorance."

“It [the State] has taken on a vast mass of new duties and responsibilities;
it has spread out its powers until they penetrate to every act of the
citizen, however secret; it has begun to throw around its operations the
high dignity and impeccability of a State religion; its agents become a
separate and superior caste, with authority to bind and loose, and their
thumbs in every pot. But it still remains, as it was in the beginning, the
common enemy of all well-disposed, industrious and decent men.”

"Whenever I hear people talking about "liberal ideas," I am always astounded that men should love to fool themselves with empty sounds.

"In place of a world, there is a city, a point, in which the whole life of broad regions is collecting while the rest dries up. In place of a type-true people, born of and grown on the soil, there is a new sort of nomad, cohering unstably in fluid masses, the parasitical city dweller, traditionless, utterly matter-of-fact, religionless, clever, unfruitful, deeply contemptuous of the countryman and especially that highest form of countryman, the country gentleman." - Oswald Spengler

A long quote from a true American patriot!!

"There are two Americas: the televised America, known and hated by the world, and the rest of us. The former is a factitious creation whose strange gods include "Sex and the City," accentless TV anchorpeople, Dick Cheney, Rosie O'Donnell, "Friends," and the Department of Homeland Security. It is real enough--cross it and you'll learn more than you want to know about weapons of mass destruction--but it has no heart, no soul, no connection to the thousand and one real Americas that produced Zora Neale Hurston and Jack Kerouac and Saint Dorothy Day and the Mighty Casey who has struck out.

I am of the other America, the unseen America, the America undreamt of by the foreigners who hate my country without knowing a single thing about it. Ours is a land of volunteer fire departments, of baseball, of wizened spinsters who instead of sitting around whining about their goddamned osteoporosis write and self-publish books on the histories of their little towns, of the farmwives and grain merchants and parsons and drunkards who made their places live.

We are the America that suffers in wartime: we do the dying, the paying of taxes, we supply the million unfortunate sons (and now daughters) who are sent hither and yon in what amounts to a vast government uprooting of the populace. Militarism and empire are the enemies of small-town America, not only because some native sons come home in bodybags but also for the desolating fact that many never come home at all. They are scattered to the winds, sent out--by force or enticement of state--in the great American diaspora, never to return to the places that gave them nurture.

War kills the provinces. It drains them of cultural life as surely as it takes the lives of 18-year-old boys....

Empire focuses our attention on matters distant and remote, affairs to which we are mere spectators. You can care about your backyard or Baghdad; you can't tend to both. Under empire, Madonna replaces our mothers, imperial fantasies straight out of Henry Luce's LIFE erase our lower-case lives, and the wolf at the door is named Blitzer. Only he's not at our door--our doors are too insignificant for such a ravening creature--but on the idiot boxes that broadcast without cease the propaganda of the regime. Facile contemners of President Bush deride him as a "Texas cowboy." If only he were...."

"[E]thnic identities have become ways of claiming to be American, and this is a profound change from the past. Ethnic identity can be a means of locating oneself and one's family against the panorama of American history, against the backdrop of what it means to be American. No longer, then, need there be any contradiction between being American and asserting an ethnic identity. Increasingly, they are accepted as the same thing. Therein lies the ultimate significance of the transformation of ethnicity for white Americans."

"......We must start from the idea that the man of Tradition was aware of the existence of a dimension of being much wider than what our contemporaries experience and call 'reality'. Nowadays, after all, reality is understood only as something strictly encompassed within the world of physical bodies located in space and time. Certainly, there are those who believe in something beyond the realm of phenomena. When these people admit the existence of something else, however, they are always led to this conclusion by a scientific hypothesis or law, or by a speculative idea, or by a religious dogma; they cannot escape such an intellectual limitation. Through his practical and immediate experiences, modern man, no matter how deep his 'materialistic' or 'spiritual' beliefs may be, develops an understanding of reality only in relation to the world of physical bodies and always under the influence of his direct and immediate experiences. This is the real materialism for which our contemporaries should be reproached. All the other versions of materialism that are formulated in scientific or in philosophical terms are only secondary phenomena. The worst type of materialism, therefore, is not a matter of an opinion or of a 'theory', but it consists in the fact that man's experience no longer extends to nonphysical realities. Thus, the majority of the intellectual revolts against 'materialistic' views are only vain reactions against the latest peripheral effects stemming from remote and deeper causes.....The experience of traditional man used to reach well beyond these limits, as in the case of some so-called primitive peoples, among whom we still find today a faint echo of spiritual powers from ancient times. In traditional societies the 'invisible' was an element as real, if not more real, than the data provided by the physical senses. Every aspect of the individual and of the social life of the people belonging to these societies was influenced by this experience." - Julius Evola, Revolt Against The Modern World

"I am fully committed to the idea that human existence should be rooted in the earth . . . Nature, the psyche and life appear to me like divinity unfolded—what more could I wish for?" ~ Carl Gustav Jung

"The creative process, so far as we are able to follow it all, consists in the unconscious activation of an archetypal image, and in elaborating and shaping this image into the finished work. By giving it shape, the artist translates it into the language of the present, and so makes it possible for us to find our way back to the deepest springs of life." ~ Carl Gustav Jung

"If we may assume that what I call the archetype is a verifiable hypothesis, then we are confronted with autonomous animals gifted with a sort of consciousness and a psychic life of their own, which we can observe , at least partially, not only in living men, but also in the historic course of many centuries. Whether we call them Gods, Demons, or Illusions, they exist and function and are born anew with every generation. They have an enormous influence on individual as well as collective life and despite their familiarity, they are curiously nonhuman. This latter characteristic is the reason why they were called Gods and Demons in the past and why they are understood in our 'scientific' age as the psychical manifestations of the instincts, in as much as they represent habitual and universally occurring attitudes and thought forms.... Our consciousness only imagines that it has lost its Gods; in reality they are still there and it only needs a certain general condition in order to bring them back in full force." ~ Carl Gustav Jung

"At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet." --Plato

Omnia vincit Amor; et nos cedamus Amori. (Love conquers all; and let us submit to love.)

Amoris vulnus idem sanat, qui facit. (The wounds of love can only be healed by the one who made them.)

"Love is a self-manifested notion depending on how lonely you are - so if you're really attracted to someone, and you're really lonely, I think you can fall in love in an instant. It's all about where you're at." --Kiefer Sutherland

"Self-control will place a man among the Gods, while lack of it will lead him into deepest darkness." --Tirukural 13:121

War is an art, violence a stimulus. If we are stimulated by violence from without; it follows that an artful battle, as equal and opposite reaction, is precipitated, and necessitated, by natural law.

"No one must lightly dismiss the question of race. It is the key to world history, and it is precisely for this reason that written history often lacks clarity - it is written by people who do not understand the race question and what belongs to it. Language and religion do not make a race - there is only one thing which makes a race, and that is blood." --Benjamin Disraeli, Prime Minister of Great Britain 1872-80

"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power... Power is not a means, it is an end... The object of power is power." --"1984"

“Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.” --"Paradise Lost"

“The mind is its own place, and in itself

“Grace was in all her steps, heaven in her eye,
In every gesture dignity and love.” --"Paradise Lost"

"Anyone who clings to the historically untrue — and thoroughly immoral — doctrine that 'violence never solves anything' I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and of the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms." --Mr. Dubois, "Starship Troopers"

"The new radicals are therefore the decentralisers, the federalisers, the regionalists, the regional nationalists (in contrast to the centralizing, expansionist and hence non-radical nationalistic power megalomaniacs) such as they begin to emerge in all corners of the world."
--Leopold Kohr, "the New Radicalism" (http://71.18.187.11/radicalweb/radicalconsultation/newradicalism.html)

"The decentralist would limit the power of the State…In a totalitarian order even the nation may be swallowed by the State, and this complete inversion of the right order has not been uncommon in our time. Still more often, in countries not rigidly totalitarian, we see within the nation religious, social and economic communities being weakened or destroyed by State action. This is a very grave loss, for these communities do much to develop man's personality and to provide bulwarks against the State 's erosion of individual freedom…The individual person must therefore be enabled to withstand the State when it overreaches itself. . . In the Welsh nationalist view therefore the nation is a community of communities, and the State fails in its proper function if these communities are weakened rather than strengthened by it."

Every Warrior of the Light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons. Every Warrior of the Light has, at least once, believed he was not a Warrior of the Light.
Every Warrior of the Light has failed in his spiritual duties.
Every Warrior of the Light has said 'yes' when he wanted to say 'no.'

Contention grew hot and love grew cold...When faith is in the mouth rather than in the heart, when the solid knowledge of Sacred Scripture fails us, nevertheless by terrorization we drive men to believe what they do not believe, to love what they do not love, to know what they do not know. That which is forced cannot be sincere, and that which is not voluntary cannot please Christ."

Waiting


Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea;
I rave no more 'gainst time or fate,
For, lo! my own shall come to me.


I stay my haste, I make delays,
For what avails this eager pace?
I stand amid the eternal ways,
And what is mine shall know my face.


Asleep, awake, by night or day,
The friends I seek are seeking me;
No wind can drive my bark astray,
Nor change the tide of destiny.


What matter if I stand alone?
I wait with joy the coming years;
My heart shall reap where it hath sown,
And garner up its fruit of tears.


The waters know their own and draw
The brook that springs in yonder height;
So flows the good with equal law
Unto the soul of pure delight.


The stars come nightly to the sky;
The tidal wave unto the sea;
Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high,
Can keep my own away from me.

A wonderfully honest assestment of the European New Right, and by extension, neo-paganism in general:

"Wegierski also criticises the paganism of the French New Right, and its virulent anti-Catholicism. He states : "Roman Catholicism is probably the only remaining serious traditional religious force (of historical duration) in Europe today. However strenuously the ENR rejects it, the similarities of some of its positions to those of traditional Catholic organicism are all too obvious (anti-capitalism, the stress on the social, and attacks on gross materialism and consumerism)." As a pagan myself, I find some ENR thinking on the subject confused. Pagan beliefs are reflected in most Christian churches. To reject Christianity is to reject our pagan heritage too. On a political level we can surely see the good in Rerum Novarum or the philosophy of Aquinas? The obsessive nature of the ENR desire to trace a history of paganism to justify present beliefs is odd; it is really more an attempt to create one."

Author - Honorй de Balzac (May 20, 1799 August 18, 1850) was a French novelist. Along with Flaubert, he is generally regarded as a founding father of realism in European literature. His large output of novels and stories, collectively entitled La Comйdie humaine, is a broad panorama of French society in the period of the Restoration (1815-1830) and the July Monarchy (1830-1848)...
French - la durйe d'une passion est proportionnelle а la rйsistance qu'y a opposйe la femme aimйe

It is at once by way of poetry and through poetry, as with music, that the soul glimpses splendors from beyond the tomb; and when an exquisite poem brings one’s eyes to the point of tears, those tears are not evidence of an excess of joy, they are witness far more to an exacerbated melancholy, a disposition of the nerves, a nature exiled among imperfect things, which would like to possess, without delay, a paradise revealed on this very same earth.

Bread and wine

In hope and longing the will flutters to unknown altitudes and unloads itself there til a vague echo alone remains and everything appeared conceited

Striving is fight and yield, the will explores then the path and masters its surrounding, or loses track and suffers defeats, yet like a current of breath sucking the precondition to life and ricochets poison, the illusory feat glides off from the mind, the soul beads in unmoved clarity in the milestone of the body.

Bread and wine for whom found himself, for his beloved ones and for those trudging still bend under a flag of sorrow and threatened to perish in a desert of devastation...

The Last of the Light Brigade

"There were thirty million English who talked of England's might,
There were twenty broken troopers who lacked a bed for the night.
They had neither food nor money, they had neither service nor trade;
They were only shiftless soldiers, the last of the Light Brigade.

They felt that life was fleeting; they knew not that art was long,
That though they were dying of famine, they lived in deathless song.
They asked for a little money to keep the wolf from the door;
And the thirty million English sent twenty pounds and four!

They laid their heads together that were scarred and lined and grey;
Keen were the Russian sabres, but want was keener than they;
And an old Troop-Sergeant muttered, "Let us go to the man who writes
The things on Balaclava the kiddies at school recites."

They went without bands or colours, a regiment ten-file strong,
To look for the Master-singer who had crowned them all in his song;
And, waiting his servant's order, by the garden gate they stayed,
A desolate little cluster, the last of the Light Brigade.

They strove to stand to attention, to straighten the toil-bowed back;
They drilled on an empty stomach, the loose-knit files fell slack;
With stooping of weary shoulders, in garments tattered and frayed,
They shambled into his presence, the last of the Light Brigade.

The old Troop-Sergeant was spokesman, and "Beggin' your pardon," he said,
"You wrote o' the Light Brigade, sir. Here's all that isn't dead.
An' it's all come true what you wrote, sir, regardin' the mouth of hell;
For we're all of us nigh to the workhouse, an, we thought we'd call an' tell.

"No, thank you, we don't want food, sir; but couldn't you take an' write
A sort of 'to be continued' and 'see next page' o' the fight?
We think that someone has blundered, an' couldn't you tell 'em how?
You wrote we were heroes once, sir. Please, write we are starving now."

The poor little army departed, limping and lean and forlorn.
And the heart of the Master-singer grew hot with "the scorn of scorn."
And he wrote for them wonderful verses that swept the land like flame,
Till the fatted souls of the English were scourged with the thing called Shame.

O thirty million English that babble of England's might,
Behold there are twenty heroes who lack their food to-night;
Our children's children are lisping to "honour the charge they made-"
And we leave to the streets and the workhouse the charge of the Light Brigade!"

Many of my associates are certainly pods. They have no feelings. They exist, breathe, sleep. To be a pod means that you have no passion, no anger, the spark has left you.... Of course, there’s a very strong case for being a pod. These pods, who get rid of pain, ill-health and mental disturbances, are, in a sense, doing good. It happens to leave you in a very dull world but that, by the way, is the world that most of us live in. It's the same as people who welcome going into the army or prison. There’s regimentation, a lack of having to make up your mind, face decisions.... People are becoming vegetables. I don’t know what the answer is except an awareness of it. That's what makes a picture like Invasion of the Body Snatchers important.

"The unfortunate fact of the matter is that a majority of the White citizens are not receptive to any information or idea that is Politically Incorrect, no matter how atrocious the situation.

"We understand that it is not moral to be weak or to favor other races over our own. It is not moral to give away what our ancestors struggled and died for. We understand that it is moral to survive, that it is moral to be strong, that it is moral to defend our land, that it is moral to fight against those who would take our land, just as it is moral to fight against those who would corrupt our spirits."

"If our buildings, our highways, and our railroads should be wrecked, we could rebuild them. If our cities should be destroyed, out of the very ruins we could erect newer and greater ones. Even if our armed might should be crushed, we could rear sons who would redeem our power. But if the blood of our White race should become corrupted and mingled with the blood of Africa, then the present greatness of the United States of America would be destroyed and all hope for civilization would be as impossible for a Negroid America as would be redemption and restoration of the Whiteman's blood which had been mixed with that of the Negro."

You must take your choice!"

-– Sen. Theodore Bilbo, 1877 - 1947


"When two races come into contact, one will expel the other from the commonly occupied or desired territory, or the races will adjust their differences through a process of inter-race breeding, creating a mongrel race differing from the parent races but with a tendency to eliminate the specialized characters of the parent race. This result follows from the expression of biological laws and cannot be altered by educational program, legislative decree, or any amount of philanthropic interest."

A Witch, A Healer

For what Final Purpose
Is Our Lady's work Done
To Reunite, the Blood Lost
Until Our War is Won.

Life with Death

by AlbionMP

Let us Celebrate Life with Death
The Fire of their Battle
Lights the Path
That We must Tread

Into Our Hands
Grace is Given
If We, but Recognise
Their Division

Division Too
Must take Center Seat
To bring Together
Our Life, with
Our Death.

I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.- Sir Winston Churchill

Pigs are very beautiful animals...There is no point of view from which a really corpulent pig is not full of sumptuous and satisfying curves.

I am very proud to be called a pig. It stands for pride, integrity and guts.

The Nuts of Knowledge
George William Russell

I thought, beloved, to have brought to you
A gift of quietness and ease and peace,
Cooling your brow as with the mystic dew
Dropping from twilight trees.
Homeward I go not yet; the darkness grows;
Not mine the voice to still with peace divine:
From the first fount the stream of quiet flows
Through other hearts than mine.
Yet of my night I give to you the stars,
And of my sorrow here the sweetest gains,
And out of hell, beyond its iron bars,
My scorn of all its pains.

Angels and Demons can't cross over into our plane. So, instead we get what I call half-breeds. The influence peddlers. They can only whisper in our ears. A single word can give you courage, or turn your favorite pleasure into your worst nightmare. Those with the demon's touch and those part angel, living alongside us. They call it the balance. I call it hypocritical bullshit.
- John Constantine

[speaking to God] I know I'm not one of your favorites, and I'm not welcomed in your house, but I could really use some attention.
- John Constantine

John Constantine: What if I told you that God and the devil made a wager, a kind of standing bet for the souls of all mankind?
Angela Dodson: I'd tell you to stay on your meds.

Heaven and hell are right here, behind every wall, every window, the world behind the world. And we're smack in the middle.

Angela Dodson: I don't believe in the devil.
John Constantine: You should. He believes in you.

Immortality
George William Russell

We must pass like smoke or live within the spirit's fire;
For we can no more than smoke unto the flame return
If our thought has changed to dream, our will unto desire,
As smoke we vanish though the fire may burn.

Lights of infinite pity star the grey dusk of our days:
Surely here is soul: with it we have eternal breath:
In the fire of love we live, or pass by many ways,
By unnumbered ways of dream to death.

"Some very basic forms of generative music have existed for a long time, but as marginal curiosities. Wind chimes are an example, but the only compositional control you have over the music they produce is in the original choice of notes that the chimes will sound. Recently, however, out of the union of synthesisers and computers, some much finer tools have evolved. Koan Software is probably the best of these systems, allowing a composer to control not one but one hundred and fifty musical and sonic parameters within which the computer then improvises (as wind improvises the wind chimes).

The works I have made with this system symbolise to me the beginning of a new era of music. Until 100 years ago, every musical event was unique: music was ephemeral and unrepeatable and even classical scoring couldn't guarantee precise duplication. Then came the gramophone record, which captured particular performances and made it possible to hear them identically over and over again.

But now there are three alternatives: live music, recorded music and generative music. Generative music enjoys some of the benefits of both its ancestors. Like live music it is always different. Like recorded music it is free of time-and-place limitations - you can hear it when and where you want.

I really think it is possible that our grandchildren will look at us in wonder and say: "you mean you used to listen to exactly the same thing over and over again?"

An ancient master said, “The mountains, the rivers, the whole earth, the entire array of phenomena are all oneself.” If you can absorb the essence of this message, there are no activities outside of meditation: you dress in meditation and eat in meditation; you walk, stand, sit, and lie down in meditation; you perceive and cognize in meditation; you experience joy, anger, sadness, and happiness in meditation.

"Dying swans twisted wings
Beauty not needed here
Lost my love, lost my life
In this garden of fear
I have seen many things
In a lifetime alone
Mother love is no more
Bring this savage back home

Wilderness house of pain
Makes no sense of it all
Close this mind dull this brain
Messiah before his fall
What you see is not real
Those who know will not tell
All is lost sold your soul
In this brave new world

A brave new world
In a brave new world
A brave new world
In a brave new world

Dragon kings dying queens
Where is salvation now
Lost my life lost my dreams
Rip the bones from my flesh
Silent screams laughing here
Dying to tell you the truth
You are planned and you are damned
In this brave new world

A brave new world

Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely.

It is not true that life is one damn thing after another. It’s one damn thing over and over.

Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling into at night. I miss you like hell.

The soul can split the sky in two and let the face of God shine through

Soar, eat ether, see what has never been seen; depart, be lost, but climb.

"I see that goodness and justice have found a home in your heart: we could never live together. You are now admiring my beauty, which has overwhelmed many a woman, but sooner or later, you'll regret ever having given your love to me, for you do not know my soul. Not that I would ever be unfaithful to you: to she who bares her heart to me with such abandon and trust, I bare mine back with equal trust and abandon, but get it into your head lest you ever forget it: Wolves and lambs look not on one another with bedroom eyes."

"Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it."
-- George Bernard Shaw

The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing"

"The attempt to silence a man is the greatest honour you can bestow on him. It means that you recognize his superiority to yourself."

"The right to freedom of expression is justified first of all as the right of an individual purely in his capacity as an individual. It derives from the widely accepted premise of Western thought that the proper end of man is the realization of his character and potentialities as a human being."
