quotes
Quintessensual "With subjectivity in philosophy, anarchism in politics goes hand in hand.
Already during Luther's lifetime, unwelcome and unacknowledged disciples had developed the doctrine of Anabaptism, which for a time dominated the city of Munster. The Anabaptists repudiated all law since they held that good men will be guided at every moment by the Holy Spirit, who can not be bound by formulas. From this premise they arrive at communism and sexual promiscuity; they were therefore exterminated after a heroic resistance."

from
Bertrand Russel (1872-1970)
"History Of Western Philosphy" (1948)

dB Believe nothing merely because it has been told you. Not even if your teacher tells it. But only that which, after due examination and analysis, you find to be the good, the welfare, and the benefit of all mankind. Take that as your doctrine and hold it to yourself.

anti-social butterfly O Lord our Father, our young patriots, idols of our hearts, go forth to battle- be Thou near to them! With them- in spirit- we also go forth from the sweet peace of our beloved firesides to smite the foe. O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with their little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it- for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.

silentbob "Three television shows: A 1970 NET broadcast of a big all-star multiple bill at the Fillmore East. The Byrds, Sha Na Na, and Elvin Bishop have all done their respective things. Now we get to see three of four songs from a set by Van Morrison. He climaxes, as he always did in those days, with "Cyprus Avenue" from Astral Weeks. After going through all the verses, he drives the song, the band, and himself to a finish which has since become one of his trademarks and one of the all-time classic rock 'n' roll set-closers. With consumate dynamics that allow him to snap from indescribably eccentric throwaway phrasing to sheer passion in the very next breath he brings the music surging up through crescendo after crescendo, stopping and starting and stopping and starting the song again and again, imposing long maniacal silences like giant question marks between the stops and starts and ruling the room through sheer tension, building to a shout of "It's too late to stop now!," and just when you think it's all going to surge over the top, he cuts it off stone cold dead, the hollow of a murdered explosion, throws the microphone down and stalks off the stage. It is truly one of the most perverse things I have ever seen a performer do in my life. And, of course, it's sensational: our guts are knotted up, we're crazed and clawing for more, but we damn well know we've seen and felt something. "

she "Omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience will take a back seat hence.
Lol and behold!
Witness the tumultuous birth of a new world.
We have come to unadulterate the truth, hew the stone and knock down walls, seek our dreams,
build our nightmares,
love for love,
slam the doors,
smash the mirrors,
blow out the candles,
tear down bridges,
denounce education,
reinvent the wheel,
chew bubblegum,
burn water,
get drunk on karma juice,
stroll the Elysian Fields,
dance round bonfires,
drown in chocolate,
walk on blood,
scream with eloquence,
shatter the silence,
leap from ivory towers,
glorify virginity,
kill time,
shake the earth,
relinquish misfortune,
cast the dice,
annihilate culture,
elucidate obscurity,
fashion new dimensions,
design event horizons,
vanquish the fundamentals,
controversize the truth,
obliterate the quintessential,
challenge Fate,
defy Death,
and execute perfection.

in a silent way "what makes us men and women is that we can act according to logic. what makes us human is that we sometimes choose not to."

that's paraphrased to some degree; the original quote (which comes from a.s. byatt) refers only to men. i think that's a mistake, and a glaring oversight, even if it was probably little more than a simplification made for the sake of a snappier maxim.

after making the appropriate adjustment, i think there's something there worth ruminating on.

Risen : "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."

epitome of incomprehensibility James Joyce said, A man of genius makes no mistakes. His errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery."

More specifically, his snobby and partly autobiographical character Stephen Dedalus said this in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man; one thing I like about his next book, Ulysses, is that Stephen gets poked fun at a bit. He's got a marvelous inner life, but he IS pretentious - a bit of poking is in order, I think.

Ironically, many people consider Ulysses more pretentious than Portrait because it's longer and much more complicated. But what makes a book pretentious? Is it the same things that make a person pretentious? I'm leaving that open. I don't know.
