Stolen Quote: Normal

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for–in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it. ~ Ellen DeGeneres

And retirement is downsizing to a smaller house, so you can afford to not work.

Stolen Quote: Falling Star

Watching a peaceful death of a human being reminds us of a falling star; one of a million lights in a vast sky that flares up for a brief moment only to disappear into the endless night forever. ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Now I wonder what it would be like to watch someone die from a falling star.

Stolen Quote: Love

If in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure, then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing floor, into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. ~ Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

And where you will keep all of your paycheck, and control all of the TV remote.

Stolen Quote: Gratitude

A man’s indebtedness is not virtue, his repayment is. Virtue begins when he dedicates himself actively to the job of gratitude. ~ Ruth Benedict, Anthropologist

I’d say this is fine, as long as we avoid turning the gratitude into guilt.

Stolen Quote: Adoration

To insure the adoration of a theorem for any length of time, faith is not enough, a police force is needed as well. ~ Albert Camus, French author and philosopher

Perhaps the invention of major religions, and the sword, went hand-in-hand.
