“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” (Mahatma Gandhi)

Een gelukkig nieuw jaar!
Elke 31 december stress ik om een passende quote te vinden voor m’n nieuwjaarsmail. Dit jaar ben ik de database van het unix-programma ‘fortune’ (dat op eenvoudige vraag een fortune cookie opdient) ingedoken. En daar zitten pareltjes in! Hieronder een selectie:

“May your future be limited only by your dreams.” — Christa McAuliffe

I don’t wanna argue, and I don’t wanna fight, But there will definitely be a party tonight… — Jackson Browne – For a Rocker

t’s fine for you, Marge. But I used to rock and roll all night and party every day. Then it was every other day. Now I’m lucky if I can find half an hour a week in which to get funky. I’ve got to get out of this rut and back into the groove! — Homer Simpson, Homerpalooza

Look! Before our very eyes, the future is becoming the past. — anonymous

“Elves and Dragons!” I says to him. “Cabbages and potatoes are better for you and me.” — J. R. R. Tolkien

Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot. By Order of the Author — Mark Twain, “The adventures of Hucklebarry Finn”

Tout choses sont dites deja, mais comme personne n’ecoute, il faut toujours recommencer. — A. Gide

A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it. — Oscar Wilde, “The Portrait of Mr. W.H.”

All men know the utility of useful things; but they do not know the utility of futility. — Chuang-tzu

Every person, all the events in your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you. — anonymous

Everything in this book may be wrong. — Messiah’s Handbook: Reminders for the Advanced Soul

Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t. — anonymous

Normal times may possibly be over forever. — anonymous

We have only two things to worry about: That things will never get back to normal, and that they already have. — anonymous

Voor wie meer van dat wilt; je krijgt een willekeurige fortune elke keer je deze pagina binnenhaalt.
