I never ask rhetorical questions. I tend not to catch covert sarcasm very well so I don't use it much myself -- I prefer vodka. I could be described as a textbook Scorpio, whether or not you're into astrology.

"Moving parts in rubbing contact require lubrication to avoid excessive wear. Honorifics and formal politeness provide lubrication where people rub together. Often the very young, the untraveled, the naive, the unsophisticated deplore these formalities as "empty,""meaningless," or "dishonest," and scorn to use them. No matter how "pure" their motives, they thereby throw sand into machinery that does not work too well at best." - Lazarus Long


"People think to forgive means to say everything is forgotten, everything is the way it was before. What forgive really means is that I'm opening my heart but I now know I don't want you over to my house for potato salad anymore. I've learned my lesson there. But I wish you well, I don't wish you harm, and it's not my responsibility to change you."
~~Ilyana Van Sant.



"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."
-Gnostic Gospel of St. Thomas.


"When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
~~Martin Niemöller



"Good girls go to Heaven, but the Bad Girls go EVERYWHERE!"



Thomas Merton:
Ghandhi said, "To refuse military service when the time has come for it to be necessary, is to act after the time to combat the evil has run out." Compulsory military service is only a symptom of a deeper evil. All who support the state in its organizing for war or in policies that imply the willingness to organize for war, and all who profit by privilages in such a state, have no business refusing military service. The refusal must be much more radical and much more sacrificial. It implies the refusal of privialges and benefits as well as of cooperation in a few policies in which one does not agree.



Only fools and madmen go into battle unafraid.
~Guy Gavriel Kay
