His reads: THOSE THAT KNEW HIM BEST DEPLORED HIM MOST /// It is going to be a very INTERESTING weekend !!!!! /// Whiskey has been a good friend to me. /// straightener catching on fire while in use on my bangs was not in my Saturday plan. /// Judging by my Twitter feed, there are also a lot of people down there calling for the end to capitalism, nationalizing the oil companies, and lots of other interesting ideas from outer space.

So. /// “No one’s death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.” — Hermann Broch /// You know. Parrots move in. Then they want food and water. And constant attention. And conversation. And room to fly. And then they imitate all the appliances and make as much noise as possible. And then they fly all over the house, and the wind beneath their wings knocks all of your papers and tiny objects all over the floor. They seem to thrive on chaos. /// “ Judge of your natural character by what you do in your dreams. ” — Ralph Waldo Emerson /// independent practitioners who share a commitment to helping fellow humans create a better quality of life by facilitating therapeutic relationships based on openness and acceptance, tempered with protective and compassionate limits. /// Style, is like a frog: you can dissect the thing, but it somehow dies in the process. – Arthur Quinn /// “Have you ever considered that your intelligence may be the very thing causing your dilemma?” /// “The essence of chess is thinking about the essence of chess.” — David Bronstein /// Indiana had a sumptuary law prohibiting the smoking of cigarettes, and a showman was exhibiting a trick chimpanzee in a country town in the vicinity of South Bend. One of the tricks of this animal was to smoke a cigarette, for which he was arrested and brought before a justice of the peace. His keeper pleaded that the animal did not know that he was violating the law, but the justice solemnly replied that ignorance of the law excuses no one, and the chimpanzee was fined five dollars which his keeper paid. /// Guy in long line outside stall: Hurry up, man!
