Random drops of wisdom

"When told that man lives in delusion everyone thinks of himself as the exception – hence his delusion." ~ Vernon Howard

"Fear is the great robber of time." ~ (Unknown)

"The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education." ~ Einstein

"With all the conflicting information on diet, what makes sense? Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, larvicides, genetically modified organisms, chemical fertilizers, microwaves, pasteurization, homogenization, hormonally injected animals, color dyes, artificial additives, and high fructose corn syrup? Or raw, organic, sun-ripened plant food?" ~ David Wolf

"The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease." ~ Voltaire

"Strange, indeed, that you should not have suspected that your universe and its contents were only dreams, visions, fiction! Strange, because they are so frankly and hysterically insane--like all dreams:[...] a God who mouths justice and invented hell--mouths mercy and invented hell--mouths Golden Rules, and forgiveness multiplied by seventy times seven, and invented hell; who mouths morals to other people and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all;[...] and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites this poor, abused slave to worship him!..." ~  Mark Twain - The Mysterious Stranger

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." ~ Mahatma Ghandi
