Glimpses of Nirvana

“Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.”  ~ J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

“Man, when you lose your laugh you lose your footing.”  ~ Ken Kesey

“If you spend your life sparing people’s feelings and feeding their vanity, you get so you can’t distinguish what should be respected in them.”  ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

“You know your problem, Quentin? You keep expecting people not to be themselves.”  ~ John Green, Paper Towns

“At a time like this, which exists maybe only for me, but is nonetheless real, if I can communicate, and in the telling and the bearing of my soul anything is gained, even though the words which I use are pretentious and make you cringe with embarrassment, let me remind you of the pilgrim who asked for an audience with the Dalai Lama.

He was told he must first spend five years in contemplation. After the five years, he was ushered into the Dalai Lama’s presence, who said, ‘Well, my son, what do you wish to know? ‘ So the pilgrim said, ‘i wish to know the meaning of life, father. ‘

And the Dalai Lama smiled and said, ‘Well my son, life is like a beanstalk, isn’t it?”    ~   Procol Harum, from “Glimpses of Nirvana”,  lyrics by Keith Reid

     Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
