“Genius : the ability to produce fantastic amounts of equally
bullshit that all makes perfect sense”
A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.
Teachers teach more by what they are than by what they say.
See first, think later, then test.
But always see first.
Otherwise you will only see what you were expecting.
“Time is the cruelest teacher; first she gives the test, then teaches the lesson.”
The problem is not that there are problems.
The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.
When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.
Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.
“A man who is very busy seldom changes his opinions.”
We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.
The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people.
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing
does the painter do good things.
The world today doesn’t make sense,
so why should we paint pictures that do?
I believe that if life gives you lemons,
you should make lemonade…
And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka,
& have a party.
“It is much easier to suppress a first desire than to satisfy those that follow”
Sometimes the best way to figure out who you are is to get to that place
where you don’t have to be anything else.
You can’t change the direction of the wind,
but you can adjust sails to always reach your destination.
Who is the happiest of men?
He who values the merits of others and in their pleasure takes joy,
even as though t’were his own.
“Life is the continuous adjustment of internal relations to external relations”
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference
between lightning and a lightning bug.
Life is change.
Growth is optional.
