Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke and dust, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “wow, what a ride!!!”

It’s not the number of breaths you take, but the number of moments that take your breath away.

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, and acts the best.

Come back with your shield - or on it

Chance favors the prepared mind.

Life is Short. Love Hard. Eat the Cookies.

Pain heals, Chicks dig scars, Glory last forever.

Never hire a ferret to do a weasels job.

The only permanent rule in Calvin ball is that you can’t play it the same way twice.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.

tallblueeyedman: While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.

In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why
do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!

tallblueeyedman: “And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child”

“It came without ribbons, it came without tags. It came without packages, boxes, or bags. Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas (the thought) means a little bit more”

tallblueeyedman: So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell
Blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail
A smile from a veil
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts
Hot ashes for trees
Hot air for a cool breeze
Cold comfort for change
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?
