I see my cousin just posted this on his facebook wall:

"Every person that passes through our life is unique. Always leaves something from his own and takes something from us. Some may take a lot, but we won't find anyone that is not going to leave us something. This is the biggest responsibility of our lives and the obvious proof that two souls never find each other by chance."

- Jorge Luis Borges

"El cielo está dentro de uno
y está el infierno también...
el alma escribe sus libros
pero ninguno los lee"

("Heaven is within oneself
and so is hell...
the soul writes its own books
but nobody read them")

"Notice how much higher in protein (and comparable or lower in fat) dried grasshoppers are than the meats most people eat. Dried grasshoppers can be ground into flour and incorporated into other foods, unseen Suspect ."

-- Biology 104 lecture, Clermont College

Which reminds me that the Indians John Wesley Powell encountered beyond the 100th parallel lived primarily on grasshoppers, and considered themselves to be living in an earthly paradise (white men couldn't even figure out how to stay alive in that environment).

Possible by this lady? (or not):


But there's also Jesse Winchester's lyric "Do it"

"If the wheel is fixed

I would still take a chance

If we're walking on thin ice

Then we might as well dance"

"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask and he will tell the truth."

--Oscar Wilde


This might explain why people will divulge things on discussion fora that they won't tell their friends and families.

Elisabeth had to do a project for English called "About Myself." On the cover with her photograph she put the
Wilde quotation, "Be yourself. Everyone else is taken."

I can remember wondering as a child if I were a young Macaulay or Ruskin and secretly deciding that I was. My infant mind even was bitter with those who insisted on regarding me as a normal child and not as a prodigy.
