Humor is a presence in the world
- like grace -
and shines on everybody."

"The only people for me are the mad ones,

the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk,

mad to be saved....the ones who never

yawn or say a commonplace thing,

but burn, burn, burn,

like fabulous yellow roman candles

exploding like spiders across the stars."


Jack Kerouac

"The earth's distances invite the eye.
And as the eye reaches, so must the mind
stretch to meet these new horizons.
I challenge anyone to stand with autumn
on a hilltop and fail to see a new expanse,
not only around him,
but in him, too."
Hal Borland

"For me there is only the travelling
on paths that have heart,
on any path that may have heart.
There I travel, and the only worthwhile
challenge is to traverse its full length.
And there I travel, looking, looking,
b r e a t h l e s s l y."
Carlos Castenada

"Man is harder than iron,
stronger than stone,
and more fragile
