    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

    Confucius

    I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

    He who fights against monsters should see to it that he does not become a monster in the process. And when you stare persistently into an abyss, the abyss also stares into you.

    It is easier to carry an empty cup
    than one that is filled to the brim.

    The sharper the knife
    the easier it is to dull.
    The more wealth you possess
    the harder it is to protect.
    Pride brings it's own trouble.

    When you have accomplished your goal
    simply walk away.



    ~Lao Tsu

    Thirty spokes are joined together in a wheel,
    but it is the center hole
    that allows the wheel to function.

    We mold clay into a pot,
    but it is the emptiness inside
    that makes the vessel useful.

    We fashion wood for a house,
    but it is the emptiness inside
    that makes it livable.

    We work with the substantial,
    but the emptiness is what we use.



    ~ more Lao Tsu
    "Do you have any bactine? Some of this blood is mine."

    "Dear Die-ary, today I stuffed some dolls full of dead rats I put in the blender. I'm wondering if, maybe, there really is something wrong with me."

    " Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country"

    How about your own pithy comments?

    Man can not live by bread alone...he must have p-nut butter!

    There are those people that would take pleasure in seeing you fail. Take pleasure in denying them that pleasure.

    If breathing were not an involuntary function, over half the worlds population would die.

    Practice makes permanent..there's no such thing as perfection.

    While I am NOT a Mike Tyson fan, there is a lot of truth to this one:

    You're so pathetic, it's cute. -Happy Bunny

    He's still standing...and that offends me. -Seig

    I have the body of a god...too bad it happens to be Buddha.
    See, all I've gotta do is get loose like I'm fluid, dude, Rollin' up my sleeves on my gi and get into it. You and who, him and them? Line up in a single file. One on one, all for one...end up in a bigger pile. The ambiance of Martial Arts is constant, Nunchucks chuckin' when I step in the mosh pit. Wing Chun dummy getting splintered apart, Escrima sticks whippin' and I'm chipping the bark. What are you? A pink belt? I'll give you a head start. Kumite killin', with the spirit of Ed Parker.
