barefoot conducts his seminars on his houseboat in sausalito. it costs a hundred dollars to find out why we are on this earth. you also get a sandwich, but i wasn't hungry that day. john lennon had just been killed and i think i know why we are on this earth; it's to find out that what you love the most will be taken away from you, probably due to an error in high places rather than by design.

if the fate of twentieth-century man is to live with death from adolescence to premature senescence, why then the only life-giving answer is to accept the terms of death, to live with death as immediate danger, to divorce oneself from society, to exist without roots, to set out on that uncharted journey into the rebellious imperatives of the self.

Buddhism stands unique in the history of human thought in denying the existence of. . . a Soul, Self, or Atman. According to the teaching of the Buddha, the idea of self is an imaginary, false belief which has no corresponding reality, and it produces harmful thoughts of "me" and "mine," selfish desire, craving, attatchment, hatred, ill-will, conceit, pride, egoism, and other defilements, impurities and problems. It is the source of all the troubles in the world from personal conflicts to wars between nations. In short, to this false view can be traced all the evil in the world.

why do they always teach us that it is easy and evil to do what we want and that we need discipline to restrain ourselves. it's the hardest thing in the world - to do what we want.

Architecture is the alphabet of giants; it is the largest set of symbols ever made to meet the eyes of men. A tower stands up like a sort of simplified statue, of much more than heroic size.

~Gilbert Keith Chesterton, 1874 - 1936

a non sequitur is a conversational and literary device, often used for comical purposes (as opposed to its use in formal logic). it is a comment which, due to its lack of meaning relative to the comment it follows, is absurd to the point of being humorous or confusing. its use can be deliberate or unintentional. literally, it is latin for "it does not follow."

if you have an apple and i have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and i will still each have one apple but if you have an idea and i have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

The present versions of ourselves are invariably the biggest idiots, and six months will make that clear.

Monday morning feels so bad,
Ev'rybody seems to nag me
Coming tuesday I feel better,
Even my old man looks good,
Wednesday just don't go,
Thursday goes too slow,
I've got Friday on my mind

"Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn't guarantee that Monday evening you would still be here with me. Monday, Monday, cant trust that day. Monday Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way. Oh Monday morning, you gave me no warning of what was to be. Oh Monday Monday, how could you leave and not take me?"
