One of my favorite pieces of music by Hans Zimmer is: Why so Serious?

Today is not serious. I love to read quotes, much to the chagrin of Mark Twain who thought quoting others demonstrated a lack of thinking. Two by him that mirrors our times: “There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded”. “It’s no wonder truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense”.

I ran across this passage by C S Lewis the other day:

Alice: “would you tell me, which way I should go from here?” “That all depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where—” said Alice. “then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat. “—so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation. “Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if only you walk long enough.”

Two from Eminem: “the truth is you don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed”. “A lot of truth is said in jest”.

A little poem in closing:

Who knows the source of the next thought

When it comes, play it to the end

Philosophy is what you make it to be

Science is not a straight path

When we are standing knee deep in the muck

Truth is calling with an uncertain voice

Beckoning us out of the abyss

Shining its diamond light

Leading us through the infinity of life
