Oooodles of Noodles For My Noggin
Some quotes I've been storing up and wanted to share:
Marge--"(grumble)..sorry its Ramen Noodles again for dinner"
Homer--"Baby, you make Top Ramen seem like Cup O' Noodles any day!"
---The Simpsons, Marge Goes To College 90's Flashback
2 Paintings I saw:
1) a bunch of lemons and a glass of lemonade saying: "Dreams cost nothing....And Everything."
2) A painting of 2 coffee cups: "Enjoy a moment".
"Home is where your journey begins."-- a decorative plaque that my wife bought
Watching Pearl Jam's Storytellers session, Eddie Vedder quotes Bob Whittaker: "Never let the truth get in the way of a good story."
As most fans know, Vedder has gotten very political and so he introduces a song with this:
"We find ourselves living in a time in our country where truth seems to be a vanishing commodity. But the truth doesn't disappear, its always there. It's omnipresent! But it's somehow getting lost in a barrage of misinformation and fear is how we feel."
A car window sticker I saw said, "Only Jesus Matters". My response: Really? ONLY Jesus? There's nothing else on this planet, in our lives that should matter?
From Ken Follett's Pillars Of The Earth
"Preists don't know as much as they appear to, my father was one remember?" --Agnes on her religious doubts
"Please remember this: excessive pride is a familiar sin, but a man may just as easily frustrate the will of God through excessive humility." --Cuthbert speaking to Philip about his reluctance to become prior of Kingsbridge Monastery.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
--Martin Luther King Jr.
Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three. --Confucius
Truth never damages a cause that is just. --Mohandas Gandhi
Apathy Their Stepping Stone
Hidden Deep Animosity
Through Your Eyes
Their Light Burns
Hoping to Find
You With Prying Minds
The Ultimate in Vanity
Exploiting Their Supremacy
I Can't Believe the Things You Say
I Can't Believe
I Can't Believe the Price You Pay
Nothing Can Save You
Justice Is Lost
Justice Is Raped
Justice Is Gone
Pulling Your Strings
Justice Is Done
Seeking No Truth
Winning Is All
Find it So Grim
--...And Justice For All -Metallica
