Get Inside My HeadPhotos by Ellin Beltz
There is only one way to achieve happiness on this terrestrial ball, and that is to have either a clear conscience or none at all.
Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most that has made it possible for evil to triumph.
Haile Selassie (1892-1975)
Unless you're ashamed of yourself now and then, you're not honest.
William Feather (1889-1981)
Cost of the War in Iraq
Everything is perfect, with much room for improvement.
Shunryu Suzuki-roshi (1905-1971)
As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)
When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President;
I'm beginning to believe it.
Clarence Darrow (1857-1938)
Take away the right to say "fuck" and you take away the right to say "fuck the government."
Lenny Bruce (1925-1966)
There are two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit.
Try to be in the first group - there is less competition there.
Indira Gandhi (1917-1984)
When it comes to a choice between two evils,
I always choose the one I haven't tried before.
Mae West (1892-1980)
|Age is an issue of mind over matter.
If you don't mind it doesn't matter.
(Samuel Clemens, 1835-1910)
Don't say you don't have time.
You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to
Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
We do not stop playing because we grow old;
we grow old because we stop playing.
The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
Dolly Parton (living)
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only by night.
Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849)
If I had my life to live again, I'd make the same mistakes, only sooner.
Tallulah Bankhead (1903-1968)
Plenty of people miss their share of happiness,
not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it.
William Feather (1889-1981)
There are four kinds of homicide:
Felonious, excusable, justifiable, and praiseworthy.
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914?)
Too much drama is fine, if you don't have a life.
Ed Greewood (1949-living)
All restraints upon man's natural liberty, not necessary for the simple maintenance of justice, are of the nature of slavery, and differ from each other only in degree.
Lysander Spooner (1808-1887)
It is not true that life is one damn thing after another, it is one damn thing over and over.
Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892-1950)
Efficiency is intelligent laziness.
Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988)
The illusion of freedom in America will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre.
Frank Zappa (1940-1993)
If you are thinking a year ahead, sow a seed.
If you are thinking 10 years ahead, plant a tree.
If you are thinking 100 years ahead, educate the people.
Kuan Tzu (circa 500 B.C.)

Download a free copy of RealAudio G3 player (2.71 MB).
If given the option, don't click "upgrade." The older version works better than the newer one and I'm told by those who still suffer from ms-itis it doesn't crash pc's.
While you are at it, download a free copy of Firefox Browser and Thunderbird email reader from Mozilla.Org.
Both work great and don't cost a dime, unless you choose to donate!
