"I desire what is good. Therefore, everyone who does not agree with me is a traitor.' - King George III
Old fashioned and outdated. Now we have the modern interpretation improved through education:

I desire what is good. Therefore, everyone who does not agree with me is a racist. - Lord Joe Biden
Cite where Joe Biden stated that.

We've sent comrade Rosa into the Asian theater to investigate allegations of 'marxist genocides' commited in China, Cambodia and north Korea. And once again, we find we have been misled and misinformed by western news media.

1. A pessimist sees thorns in roses; an optimist sees roses in thorns.
2. Attitude, not aptitude, determines altitude.
3. To reach the highest, start with the lowest.
4. By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
5. It's nice to be important, but it's also important to be nice.
6. Some cause happiness wherever they go; some cause happiness whenever they go.
7. There are two tragedies in life - not getting what you want and getting what you want.
8. A pessimist sees a difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees an opportunity in every difficulty.

A sage told me:- Crying is how we show our love.


Another sage wrote:-

The finest day that I've ever had
Was when I learned to cry on command
Love myself better than you
I know it's wrong so what should I do?

Crocodile 'tears' are like splinters of glass to a viewers eyes.

When staring directly at the red glowing light of a smoke detector on the ceiling of a dim room, the little red light disappears from view.

Conclusion: Staring directly at the light causes one to be blind to blind spots, because if the room is dark then awareness can’t stitch in a context to fill in the blank, especially when the context is just the memory of a blank ceiling superimposed upon the darkness.

Implication: Looking directly for quoteables makes them invisible, but alertness to the edges of awareness makes them visible.

Yeah, guess you’re right. After all, there’s a couple of billion of us, someone must have said something witty. But anyhow, going blackbelt in this thread is to take it litterary, finding the quote of the day. The current day.

When pratyahara disconnects awareness from the senses and from thought, the more you really know.
