Thus trickster seems unethical because he or she

challenges the “proper” codes of

“civilized” conduct and the hierarchies that attempt to ensure that

everything stays strictly in its proper place. Indeed, trickster is

concerned neither with the "proper" nor with “place"; he or she is

always on the move, simultaneously grounded and ungrounded, the artful

master of luminal space-time, irony, parody, and dissimulation.

Trickster's is the lie that leads to truth, and it is

articulated through humor.

Peter Murphy

"Those worlds in space are as countless as all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the Earth. Each of those worlds is as real as ours. In every one of them, there's a sucsession of incidence, events, occurences which influence its future. Countless worlds, numberless moments, an immensity of space and time. And our small planet, at this moment, here we face a critical branch-point in the history. What we do with our world, right now, will propagate down through the centuries and powerfully affect the destiny of our descendants. It is well within our power to destroy our civilization, and perhaps our species as well. If we capitulate to superstition, or greed, or stupidty we can plunge our world into a darkness deeper than time between the collapse of classical civilization and the Italian Renaissaince. But, we are also capable of using our compassion and our intelligence, our technology and our wealth, to make an abundant and meaningful life for every inhabitant of this planet. To enhance enormously our understanding of the Universe, and to carry us to the stars." Carl Sagan

"When you have children, you always have family. They will always be your priority, your responsibility. And a man, a man provides. And he does it even when he's not appreciated or respected or even loved. He simply bears up and he does it. Because he's a man."

"You see in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig."

--Clint Eastwood's character 'Blondie' in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

i never understood the "dig your own grave" bit. why would you go to all that trouble for someone who's going to kill you anyway? at least have a go at them when you've got the shovel in our hand.

Dig and I'll give you one to the back of the head...don't dig and you'll get one in each limb first...take a swing with the shovel and it's a nut shot....

"Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles. In fact, the Girl Scouts education seminar girls are directed to study the example of role models. Of the fifty role models listed, only three have a briefly-mentioned religious background – all the rest are feminists, lesbians, or Communists." - Rep. Bob Morris, R-Fort Wayne

Kind of a long quote from the Tao Te Ching

24. EXCESS

He who stretches

beyond his natural reach,

does not stand firmly

upon the ground;

just as he

who travels at a speed

beyond his means,

cannot maintain his pace.

He who boasts

is not enlightened,

and he who is self-righteous

does not gain respect

from those who are meritous;

thus, he gains nothing,

and will fall into disrepute.

Since striving,

boasting and self-righteousness,

are all unnecessary traits,

the sage considers them excesses,

and has no need of them.

And there's something on yer mind you wanna be saying

That somebody someplace oughta be hearin'

But it's trapped on yer tongue and sealed in yer head

And it bothers you badly when your layin' in bed

And no matter how you try you just can't say it

And yer scared to yer soul you just might forget it

And yer eyes get swimmy from the tears in yer head

And yer pillows of feathers turn to blankets of lead

And the lion's mouth opens and yer staring at his teeth

And his jaws start closin with you underneath

And yer flat on your belly with yer hands tied behind

And you wish you'd never taken that last detour sign

And you say to yourself just what am I doin'

On this road I'm walkin', on this trail I'm turnin'

On this curve I'm hanging

On this pathway I'm strolling, in the space I'm taking

In this air I'm inhaling

Am I mixed up too much, am I mixed up too hard

Why am I walking, where am I running

What am I saying, what am I knowing

On this guitar I'm playing, on this banjo I'm frailin

people think you should do something. People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazi's. You can't trust 'people', Jeremy.

It's a hot night. The mind races. You think about your knife: the only friend who hasn't betrayed you, the only friend who won't be dead by sunup. Sleep tight mates, in your quilted chambray night shirts.
