I am an egg living in a world where egg beating is allowed, even encouraged, and so I am whipped round and round, until I am dizzy with pain and longing for those shy days before I came out of my shell.
I know this ain't the proper place for it, but I can't get to your profile here on wordnik, to leave this comment there. (Either it's a wordie-wordnik bug, or you made your profile private.) However, in a fit of serendipity, I saw on the zeitgeist page that you had recently commented here (& from the looks of things, will again, before too long.)
"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the kind of books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us." - Kafka
DREAMS...when i was a kid i tot d world would end in 1999 cos of a tv sci-fi series dat i loved. I used to wonder if i would have a girlfriend n end up marrying her
. I wondered if id ever fly in a plane n go round d world in 80 days!!!! I tot id be a cowboy movie star somehow after watching the good the bad n the ugly...u noticed all the "I"s rite? Well am an adult now n with d benefit of hindsight, no dreams comes to stay except it has room for others n not just all about you. Oh n by the way...i dont only fly in planes but i work around planes n hope to fly round d world in 80days...space cowboys know better...Dreams...vague,twisted,sweet,bitter, deep as d ocean n as shallow as a bathtub. Any one else with DREAMS????
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty well-presented body, but rather to skid in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, loudly shouting “Wow! What a ride!�? (Brad de Haven).
That is interesting. I mean, most everyone agrees that there should be speed limits, but most everyone breaks them! The USA was built upon the principle of "majority rule, minority rights", but if a majority of voters continue to elect people to put laws into place or revoke laws, and those in power replace the supreme court, eventually that voting block could change the laws to anything they wanted. In several countries, the Muslim majority attempted to vote in an Islamic dictator and disband the democracy. If this is the wish of the people, would it not be undemocratic to go against it?
