why do bad things happen to good people?
because flat roller coasters fuckin' suck!
control your ride (best you can)
Necessity is the mother of invention
Invention is born of taking chances
Taking chances is a necessity.
work hard, play hard (not a penis reference)
I'd rather be busy than bored
the universe is an infinite space
whose center is everywhere
& whose circumference is nowhere
(so, I am, in truth, the center of the universe...)
(...fortunately, for my ego, so are you)
nothing weeps more copiously than a chunk of ice
try not to take yourself so seriously
life's jagged little pill goes down so much easier with a bit of laughter
...two elderly women are at a Catskills mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know, and such small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life. Full of loneliness and misery and suffering and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly.
...the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"
"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
(BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE DO NOT JUST HAPPEN)
And don't get me wrong,
if I had a theme song,
I don't think I'd let Nike write it,
but when I get down to it,
let go and 'just do it'
I grab a slice of life and I bite it.
