Work for the triumph of the good, knowing you will lose. --Seneca

The worm in the radish doesn't think there is anything sweeter. --Shalom Alechem

The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be on to something. Not to be on to something is to be in despair. --Walker Percy

We take a handful of sand from an endless landscape of awareness around us, and call that handful of sand the world. -- Robert Pirsig

If the aborigine drafted an IQ test, all of Western civilization would presumably flunk it. --Stanley Marion Garn

In this very breath that we take now lies the secret that all great teachers try to tell us. -- Peter Matthiessen

And that heart which was a wild garden was given to him who loved only trim lawns. And the imbecile carried the princess into slavery. --Antoine de Saint-Euxpery

It is not hard work which is dreary; it is superficial work. --Edith Hamilton

To a brave man, good luck and bad luck are like his right and left hands. He uses both. -- Saint Catherine of Sienna

Once you fully comprehend the vacuity of life without struggle, you are equipped with the basic means of salvation. --Tennessee Williams

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are out there. --Yasutani Roshi

What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner. --Colette

No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible. --Stanislaus Jerzy Lee

Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul. --Edward Abbey

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. --Benjiman Franklin

The only real struggle in history of the world…. is between the vested interest and social justice. --Arnold Toynbee

The man who thinks only of his own salvation is as good as a coal drawn out of the fire. --James Jones

For evil to succeed, all it needs is for good men to do nothing. --Martin Luther King Jr.

All cannot live on the plaza, but everyone may enjoy the sun. --Italian Proverb

The most civilized nations are as near to barbarism as the most polished steel is to rust. Nations, like metals have only superficial brilliancy. --Antoine de Rivarol (1753-1801)

If a man makes me keep my distance, the comfort is that he keeps his at the same time. –Jonathan Swift (1664-1745)

There is no need for man and no demand for man in nature; it is complete without him. -William Graham Sumner (1840-1910)

Shortsighted men ... in their greed and selfishness will, if permitted, rob our country of half its charm by their reckless extermination of all useful and beautiful wild things. -- Theodore Roosevelt.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse

ode to the 80's

"I got a job waiting for my graduation
50 thou' and year will buy a lot of beer
Things are going great, and they're only getting better
I'm doin' all right, getting good grades
The future's so bright I gotta wear shades" -timbuk3

I heard this song on the radio today (105.5), and apparently it was all over the radio in the '80s. I was too young then to remember it, but to me, it sure is funny now. Right now my roomate is telling me that this is in risky business, who knew? not me. Good luck.
