David Ellis liked a quote
Trout Fishing in America / The Pill vs. the Springhill Mine D... by Richard Brautigan
“I feel horrible. She doesn't
love me and I wander around
the house like a sewing machine
that's just finished sewing
a turd to a garbage can lid.”
Richard Brautigan
David Ellis liked a quote
Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein
“Death is not an event in life: we do not live to experience death. If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present. Our life has no end in the way in which our visual field has no limits.”
Ludwig Wittgenstein

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.”
Upton Sinclair, I, Candidate for Governor: And How I Got Licked

Herman Melville
“There is a wisdom that is woe; but there is a woe that is madness. And there is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces. And even if he for ever flies within the gorge, that gorge is in the mountains; so that even in his lowest swoop the mountain eagle is still higher than other birds upon the plain, even though they soar. ”
Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Voltaire
“The comfort of the rich depends upon an abundant supply of the poor.”
Voltaire

“I feel horrible. She doesn't
love me and I wander around
the house like a sewing machine
that's just finished sewing
a turd to a garbage can lid.”
Richard Brautigan, Trout Fishing in America / The Pill vs. the Springhill Mine Disaster / In Watermelon Sugar

Piet Hein
“I'd like to know
what this whole show
is all about
before it's out.”
Piet Hein, Grooks
