"Where you have a relationship
with another individual and you
are absolutely connected, and
then you come back onto the
planet Earth and lo and behold!
you find that person or they find
you. And you have a re-collection
that you two are very closely

"Soulmates only re-connect when
they are both at an equal level of
Spiritual understanding."

"There is another dimension to our lives that can be the basis
for loving a member of the opposite sex (and indeed, the world).
It is so rare as to be almost nonexistent and of interest to few
reading these pages, but it is my dream for the world.
Spiritual Love. A love beyond any and all physical, emotional,
psychological, intellectual needs. A love born out of a shared
dream of freedom, capable of surviving for an eternity and
of changing the world."

"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action
according to our will within limits drawn
around us by the equal rights of others.
I do not add 'within the limits of the law'
because law is often but the tyrant's will
and always so when it violates the rights
of the individual."

"When there is space between you and the
object you are observing you will know there
is no love, and without love, however hard
you try to reform the world or bring about
a new social order or however much you talk
about improvements, you will only create agony.
So it is up to you. There is no leader, there is
no teacher, there is nobody to tell you what
to do. You are alone in this mad brutal world."

"So long as you believe in a two-faced God, you
will create ecstasy and terror side by side. You have imagined a God who is the epitome of both, and by
telling yourself that you are created in the Image
and Likeness of God, you have given yourself the
moral authority to demonstrate both. You love
and hate in the name of God."

A living mind is a still mind

A living mind is a still mind, a living
mind is a mind that has no centre and
therefore no space and time. Such a
mind is limitless and that is the only
truth, that is the only reality.

Jiddu Krishnamurti
Freedom from the Known,109

The ending of noise is only a small beginning

That silence which is not the silence
of the ending of noise is only a small
beginning. It is like going through a
small hole to an enormous, wide,
expansive ocean, to an immeasurable,
timeless state. But this you cannot
understand verbally unless you have
understood the whole structure of
consciousness and the meaning of
pleasure, sorrow and despair, and the
brain cells themselves have become
quiet. Then perhaps you may come
upon that mystery which nobody can
reveal to you and nothing can destroy.

The people have always some champion who they set over them
and nurse into greatness. This and no other is the root from
which a tyrant springs. When he first appears, he is a protector.

"Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Babe Ruth

"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day."

Lyndon B. Johnson

"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading."

Paul Horning

"24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not."

H. L. Mencken

"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!"

George Bernard Shaw

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

Benjamin Franklin

"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza."

To some it's a six-pack, to me it's a Support Group. Salvation in a can!

Leo Durocher

One night at Cheers (TV Sitcom), Cliff Clavin said to his buddy, Norm Peterson:

"Well, ya see, Norm, it's like this..
A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members!
In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine!
That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
