“This crust was made with only butter
no lard, no margarine.
These apples were on the tree this time yesterday.
We buy these strawberries at this market
and take them home and make these pies.
This crust was made with only butter,
no lard, no margarine”
--the seductive voice of the pie guy at the farmer’s market

With the sublime, there is no criterion for assessing the role of taste, and so everybody is alone when it comes to judging. The question then becomes: how can we share with others a feeling which is so deep and unexchangeable?

False happiness renders men stern and proud, and that happiness is never communicated. True happiness renders them kind and sensible, and that happiness is always shared.

Lyotard's an ass: if there were no way to share with others a feeling for the sublime, then we'd have to admit and accept that there is a sublimity to torture, murder, or rape -- or any other evil. Assessing the sublime has not been tried and found wanting, it's been tried and found difficult, and Lyotard and the other retards of postmodernity have abandoned what they found too difficult. -- Marcus Bales

She's not a girl who misses much
She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand
Like a lizard on a window pane
The man in the crowd with the multicoloured mirrors
On his hobnail boots
Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy
Working overtime
A soap impression of his wife which he ate
And donated to the National Trust

the biggest cause of trouble in the world today is that the stupid people are so sure about things and the intelligent folks are so full of doubts.

here's to the Crazy Ones, here's to the Crazy Ones. the misfits. the rebels. the troublemakers. the round pegs in the square holes - the ones who see things differently. they're not fond of rules and they have no respect for the status quo. you can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. about the only thing that you can't do is ignore them. because they change things.

- jack kerouac

I guess the definition of a lunatic is a man surrounded by them.

Life has to be given a meaning because of the obvious fact that it has no meaning.
