  • LIFE: Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce. Do not regret growing older... It is a privilege denied to many! Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. Remember: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - strawberries in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO! ! What a Ride!" Good friends are like stars.... You don't always see them but you always know they are there REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY...GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL. We make a Living by what we get, We make a Life by what we give. God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

  • The Guy in the Glass by Dale Wimbrow, (c) 1934 When you get what you want in your struggle for self And the world makes you king for a day, Just go to a mirror and look at yourself And see what THAT man has to say. For it isn't your father or mother or wife Whose judgment upon you must pass, The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life Is the one staring back from the glass. Some people might think you're a straight-shootin' chum And call you a wonderful guy. But the man in the glass says you're only a bum If you can't look him straight in the eye. He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest, For he's with you clear to the end, And you've passed your most dangerous test If the guy in the glass is your friend. You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years And get pats on the back as you pass, But your final reward will be heartache and tears If you've cheated the man in the glass.

  • My best friend wrote it in one of his logical rampages that he gets sometimes. "What is life but the sensory reactions that tell us what it is? Does it exist? Does anything but you exist? Why does anything matter at all? ANYTHING? The human mind is incapable of telling us. It is the illogical dysfunctional organ that controls human actions on every level, and it may never let us learn the answers. Does anything around you appear the same to your friends, family, or neighbors? Do they even exist? All we can be sure of is ourselves supposedly, (I think, therefore I am), but why do we allow ourselves to be sure about so many things? As you walk along, to the store, in the halls of your school, to home, ask yourself these questions."

Ink and parchment have mass but they only record the word, no ink and parchment no record of the word existing. If there is no longer any record and no-one speaking the word then the word no longer exists. Electricity has no mass. Chraged particles have mass but they create the electricity, no chraged particles nothing to create it. Wires and plasma have mass but they only transport electricity, no wires or plasma no current of electricity. No particles to create it and no wires or plasma to channel it then no electricity. Software has no mass. Programers have mass but they create the software, no programers no creation. Hardware has mass but it stores the software and allows it to work, no hardware no storage. No programers to create and no hardware to store, no software. Actions have no mass. Muscles have mass and they create the action, no muscle no action. Bones have mass and they are what is caused to move. No muscles to move and no bones to be moved then no action. Thoughts have no mass. Ions have mass and they create the thought, no ions no creation. Brain cells have mass but they only move the ions and store them. No organized ions and no brain cells to organize nor store ions, no thoughts. A soul has no mass. Bodies have mass and they have a soul living inside them, no body no home. No body no action, no action no definition of who you are. No body no thoughts, no decisions of what to do can be made. No mass, no home, no definition and no decisions leave you with nothing! When you die so does your soul.
