“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. 'Time' for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.”

Ishtar Rising by Robert Anton Wilson
"I really enjoyed this book. His arguments for the chain of "anal" reactions due to the suppression of the "oral" or of female sexuality are really intriguing, convincing, and brilliantly put. However, he does, in my opinion, take metaphors too far..." Read more of this review »

“Many of these policies were proposed by wonks who are comfortable only with traits and correlations that can be measured and quantified. They were passed through legislative committees that are as capable of speaking about the deep wellsprings of human action as they are of speaking in ancient Aramaic. They were executed by officials that have only the most superficial grasp of what is immovable and bent about human beings. So of course they failed. And they will continue to fail unless the new knowledge about our true makeup is integrated more fully into the world of public policy, unless the enchanted story is told along with the prosaic one.”
David Brooks, The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement

“If someone is not spiritually present during a time when you need their help, then how will their physical presence make a difference?”

Dalai Lama XIV
“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”
Dalai Lama XIV

Luke Rhinehart
“You're all murdering life...You're all trying to change yourselves, all trying to change what is, and thus you're never actually living what is. You're killing who you are every day of your lives by not being who you are...where you are.”
Luke Rhinehart
