love is growing up

dedicated to Uri Avory my sole mate -Angie



Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up. Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are. I'll moider da bum. Problems worthy of attack prove their worth by fighting back. Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.Be nice to people on your way up because you meet them on your way down. There are two ways of constructing a software design; one way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult. Those who are willing to sacrifice essential liberties for a little order, will lose both and deserve neither. I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth. Talent does what it can; genius does what it must. A doctor can bury his mistakes but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines. Whenever I climb I am followed by a dog called 'Ego'. If you can count your money, you don't have a billion dollars. The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good. Love is the energy of the soul. Love is what heals the personality. There is nothing that cannot be healed by love. There is nothing but love. The full use of your powers along lines of excellence. All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher. This book fills a much-needed gap. The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds, and the pessimist fears this is true. Grove giveth and Gates taketh away. Don't stay in bed, unless you can make money in bed. If you can count your money, you don't have a billion dollars. Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstances. All love shifts and changes. I don't know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all the time. The problem with some people is that when they aren't drunk, they're sober. I discovered I always have choices and sometimes it's only a choice of attitude. What the world really needs is more love and less paper work. I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters. Compassion is the antitoxin of the soul: where there is compassion even the most poisonous impulses remain relatively harmless. You can widen your life by yourself, but to deepen it you need a friend. Each encounter that becomes a friendship turns into a lifeline. One can never have too many, only too many to properly take care of. Reality is an illusion that occurs due to lack of alcohol. I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a ... brain operation. Books are the shoes with which we tread the footsteps of great minds. There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread. Everything has been figured out, except how to live. The full use of your powers along lines of excellence. If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe. Drinking provides a beautiful excuse to pursue the one activity that truly gives me pleasure -- hooking up with fat, hairy girls. I think 'Hail to the Chief' has a nice ring to it. When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading. Time is never wasted when you're wasted all the time. Hope is like a road in the country: there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence. I'll sleep when I'm dead. Grove giveth and Gates taketh away. Friends are as companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life. A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous. No elected body is the country, we are the country. You and me. Us. It can only stay that way as long as we care to keep it so. Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it. Autumn is the time when seasons merge because of bare necessity. Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake. Reality is an illusion that occurs due to lack of alcohol. A doctor can bury his mistakes but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines. The instinct of nearly all societies is to lock up anybody who is truly free. First, society begins by trying to beat you up. If this fails, they try to poison you. If this fails too, the finish by loading honors on your head. In the end, everything is a gag. Who would give a law to lovers? Love is unto itself a higher law. All love shifts and changes. I don't know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all the time. Where are we going, and why am I in this handbasket? Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut. Talent does what it can; genius does what it must. Compassion is the antitoxin of the soul: where there is compassion even the most poisonous impulses remain relatively harmless. I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a ... brain operation. All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. Everything has been figured out, except how to live. When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven! It is unbecoming for young men to utter maxims. A clever man commits no minor blunders. When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot; C++ makes it harder, but when you do, it blows away your whole leg. When you have to kill a man, it costs nothing to be polite. It's kind of fun to do the impossible. I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have. No dictator, no invader, can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand. What do you take me for, an idiot? While we are postponing, life speeds by. Everything has been figured out, except how to live. When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep. Alas I wait for my uri to come to me in my dreams.
