    Ooch! I like this one!
    It's quite relevant considering some other posts I've read here lately (the site, not this thread).

    "Truth is not what you want it to be; it is what it is, and you must bend to its power or live a lie." -Miyamoto Musashi

    “Take hold of your own life.
    See that the whole existence is celebrating.
    These trees are not serious, these birds are not serious.
    The rivers and the oceans are wild,
    and everywhere there is fun,
    everywhere there is joy and delight.
    Watch existence,
    listen to existence and become part of it.”
    ― Osho

    “A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you . . . Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question . . . Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't it is of no use.”
    ― Carlos Castaneda

    “If I existed 200 years ago, all the other farmers in my community would be like, 'That guy is worthless! He's sitting on a rock, jumping up like a frog, coming up with weird concepts and ideas, making faces, and combing his hair into a giant pastry.' It's a good thing I was born in this century, when superfluous television seems to be part of the economy.”
    ― Conan O'Brien

    " I didn't do it!"

    long long ago(highschool)
    someone broke something before pe class
    coach Nelson asked the guilty party to step forward
    no one did
    ok, so coach Nelson called the roll
    when he got to Bob Shenk
    Shenk blurted out
    "I DIDN'T DO IT!"
    we all laughed
    Coach Nelson said: See me after class Bob.

    the whole world belongs to you.”
