“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Alice in Wonderland

“The planet is fine. The people are f*^#ed…the planet’ll shake us off like a bad case of fleas.” George Carlin as quoted by Oliver Morton, Nature chief news and features editor, in What is Your Dangerous Idea? collected by Harvard’s Steven Pinker.

“If humanity wishes to preserve a planet similar to that on which civilization developed and to which life on Earth is adapted, paleoclimate evidence and ongoing climate change suggest that CO2 will need to be reduced from its current 385ppm to at most 350ppm,” writes NASA’s James Hansen (2008).

“Our life is shaped by our mind;
we become what we think.
Suffering follows an evil thought
as the wheels of a cart follow the oxen that draws it.

Our life is shaped by our mind;
we become what we think.

Joy follows a pure thought
like a shadow that never leaves.”

~ Buddha

“The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” Faulkner

these 3 from poet Pat Payne:

If you get to be old enough, you get to be new again.
George Burns

Of course, the test of good manners is to be patient with bad ones.- Sebastian Horsley

To me, fashion is civilization. Pick any piece of clothing from any era and you will get an insight into the times, what people believed, how they wanted to be perceived. – Katell le Bourhis

“All you can write is what you see.” Woody Guthrie

To see things in the seed, that is genius.
> –Lao Tzu

BJ Gallagher author of A Peacock in a Land of Penguins says that

people judge themselves by their own intentions but rarely give others the same consideration

(in an article by Catherine Hamm, LA Times L2 11/4/07).

from Jordan, long time Burner friend (since 1995 Burn):

"The camera should be used for a recording of life, for rendering the
very substance and quintessence of the thing itself, whether it be
polished steel or palpitating flesh."
-- Edward Henry Weston

    thank you for your support! i am really trying to do good by god, the universe, and all the living creatures as best i can…but sometimes it is hard to find and follow the path and that’s when the love and support of other creatures really makes a difference in seeing the way.

    Hiya artpredator, love this page and saw a couple of quotes that are quite apt for some of the bloggers at Alpha :)

    “Of course, the test of good manners is to be patient with bad ones.- Sebastian Horsley”
    and
    people judge themselves by their own intentions but rarely give others the same consideration

    This one pretty much sums me up, I have often been called Malice in Wonderland :) = “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Alice in Wonderland

    Cheers
    Mal
