"Injecting humor into places where the government has complete control is essential in breaking down, in people’s minds, the invincibility of the regime" says Erica Chenoweth

Don't ever get satisfied!

Move, move, keep on walking...
(and eat apples or oranges once in a while)

First they ignore you

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

prayer's lesson

When I was a kid, I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised, God doesn't work that way, so I stole one and prayed for forgiveness...

If life is not play for you, you have made it unnecessarily serious.

public space

19.03.2008 tags [ knowledge | wisdom ]

QUESTION: Lots of people are putting lots of information about themselves on sites like Facebook and Myspace. What would you say to those young people?

Imagine that everything you are typing is being read by the person you are applying to for your first job. Imagine that it's all going to be seen by your parents and your grandparents and your grandchildren as well.

The danger is when you put something into a public space in order to share it with a few friends and in fact you've forgotten that it's actually a public space or that the list of friends is huge or that some of them can't be trusted not to be put it somewhere else.

A Week Without a Drink

"I distrust camels, and anyone else who can go a week without a drink."

take'em for what they are

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole, which she carried across her neck.

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water, at the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years this went on daily, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house."

The old woman smiled, "Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side?" "Tha t 's because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house."

Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding. You've just got to take each person for what they are and look for the good in them.

SO, to all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell the flowers on your side of the path!

the lion says to the tiger

"hey, tiger, you like to sit around
and just enjoy the sunshine,
look at our lion girls,
enjoy the breeze, the leaves moving,
watch us hunting, watch us doing all the work
and you just hang out here - enjoying"

the tiger responds:

"so what"

and the lion walks off, proudly shaking his head
and melting into the sunset colored horizon...

and the tiger thinks:

"what a beautiful sunset!"
