I don't know if this has been done before, but... I enjoy cruising the internets and finding those odd little sayings that might do us all some good to see... post 'em low!

 

"Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule."

 

"The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently."

"The trouble with so many of us is that we underestimate the power

of simplicity. We have a tendency, it seems, to over complicate our lives

and forget what's important and what's not. We tend to mistake movement

for achievement. We tend to focus on activities instead of results. And as

the pace of life continues to race along in the outside world, we forget

that we have the power to control our lives regardless of what's going on

out there."

It seems that there's a certain point in intoxication at which I become very philisophical and enlightened. Apparantly, I said the above thing at a party the other night, and one of my more sober friends thought it profound enough to write down. I can't even remeber how I got home that night... I wonder if I really have the depth portrayed here.
