for every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.

We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.

You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, 'Why not?'

the only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

somewhere there is some place that one million eyes can't see
and somewhere there is someone who can see what i can see

can you see me
i'm in the lukewarm rain
try so very hard
you know i just can't explain
think of a colour
tell me what you see
that colour's red
you can take it from me

When I cannot see words curling like rings of smoke around me I am in darkness I am nothing. I only come into existence when the plumber, or the horse dealers, or whoever it may be, says something which sets me alight. Then how lovely the smoke of my phrase is, rising and falling, flaunting and falling, upon red lobsters and yellow fruit, wreathing them into one beauty.

the flowery style is not unsuitable to public speeches or addresses, which amount only to compliment. The lighter beauties are in their place when there is nothing more solid to say; but the flowery style ought to be banished from a pleading, a sermon, or a didactic work.

Have something to say, and say it as clearly as you can. That is the only secret of style.

if you want in on the Discordian Society
then declare yourself what you wish
do what you like
and tell us about it
if you prefer

there are no rules anywhere.
the goddess prevails.

One of the goddesses had been having some very serious trouble with her dress, Brutha noticed; if Brother Nhumrod had been present, he would have had to hurry off for some very serious lying down.
"Petulia, Goddess of Negotiable Affection," said Om. "Worshiped by the ladies of the night and every other time as well, if you catch my meaning."
Brutha's mouth dropped open.
"They've got a goddess for painted jezebels?"
"Why not? Very religious people I understand. They're used to being on their-they spend so much time looking at the-look, belief is where you find it. Specialization. That's safe, see. Low risk, guaranteed returns. There's even a God of Lettuce somewhere. I mean, it's not as though any one else is likely to try to become a God of Lettuce. You just find a lettuce-growing community and hang on. Thunder gods come and go, but it's you they turn to every time when there's a bad attack of Lettuce Fly. You've got to . . . uh . . . hand it to Petulia. She spotted a gap in the market and filled it."
"There's a God of Lettuce?"
"Why not? If enough people believe, you can be god of anything . . ."

i'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it.
