Self Perpetuating Pain

"The pain body wants to survive, just like every other entity in existence, and it can only survive if it gets you to unconsciously identify with it. It can then rise up, take you over, "become you," and live through you. It needs to get its "food" through you. It will feed on any experience that resonates with its own kind of energy, anything that creates further pain in whatever form: anger, destructiveness, hatred, grief, emotional drama, violence, and even illness"

Maturity

"When one has reached maturity in the art, one will have a formless form. It is like ice dissolving in water. When one has no form, one can be all forms; when one has no style, he can fit in with any style."

Bee Watching

"Oh, the jobs people work at!
Out west near Hawtch-Hawtch there's a Hawtch-Hawtcher bee watcher, his job is to watch.
Is to keep both his eyes on the lazy town bee, a bee that is watched will work harder you see.
So he watched and he watched, but in spite of his watch that bee didn't work any harder not mawtch.
So then somebody said "Our old bee-watching man just isn't bee watching as hard as he can, he ought to be watched by another Hawtch-Hawtcher!
The thing that we need is a bee-watcher-watcher!".
Well, the bee-watcher-watcher watched the bee-watcher.
He didn't watch well so another Hawtch-Hawtcher had to come in as a watch-watcher-watcher!
And now all the Hawtchers who live in Hawtch-Hawtch are watching on watch watcher watchering watch, watch watching the watcher who's watching that bee.
You're not a Hawtch-Watcher you're lucky you see!"

- The Venerable Dr. Seuss

Rights versus Privileges

"Rights are an idea; they're just imaginary... Rights aren't rights if someone can take them away. They're privileges...

Personally, when it comes to rights, I think one of two things is true. I think either we have unlimited rights, or we have no rights at all. Personally, I lean toward unlimited rights. I feel, for instance, I have the right to do anything I please. BUT, if I do something you don't like, I think you have the right to kill me. So where are you gonna find a fairer fucking deal than that? So the next time some asshole says 'I have a right to my opinion', you say 'Yeah? Well I have a right to my opinion, and my opinion is that you have no right to your opinion.'"

- George Carlin
