"Among the men who fought on Iwo Jima, uncommon valor was a common virtue." - Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
65 years ago today:
Humor is reason gone mad.
Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.
Hmm...I smell trouble with this one.
"Marx is good. Too much of Marx is great. Nothing but Marx is trouble..."
-- Kukai Aoki
"I hate a Roman named Status Quo!
Stuff your eyes with wonder, live your
life as if you'd drop dead in 10 seconds.
See the world. Its more fantastic than
any dream made or paid for in factories.
Ask for no guarantees, ask for no security,
there were never such an animal. And if it
were, it would be related to the great
sloth which hangs upside down in a tree
all day every day, sleeping its life away.
To hell with that, shake the tree and knock
the great sloth down on his ass." --Ray Bradbury
"Joking, theres a good sport indeed."
-- Vincent Freud
"Hmmm! There must be some deeper meaning to this!"
--Vincent's older brother Sigmund
If only, sir.
"Everywhere I go I find that a poet has been there before me."
-- My mentor

"How well I have learned that there is no fence to sit on between heaven and hell. There is a deep, wide gulf, a chasm, and in that chasm is no place for any man."
- Johnny Cash
Ah, so we're playing musical quotes now, eh?
"I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human."
-- David Bowie
No, it was Cash's birthday. But as long as we're talking musicians, let's do a quote from a fellow born on 2/25:
“There's high, and there's high, and to get really high - I mean so high that you can walk on the water, that high - that's where I'm going.”
- George Harrison
"I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book."
Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
- Lewis Carroll
Well, then. Now. I'll begin at the beginnin'. A fine soft day in the spring, it was, when the train pulled into Castletown, three hours late as usual, and himself got off. He didn't have the look of an American tourist at all about him. Not a camera on him; what was worse, not even a fishin' rod.
- Father Peter Lonergan
