J's Unconventional Wisdom:

Since no creature can survive without the ability to
see or sense what is going on around it, make it

their desires, and they will fool themselves. Control
people's perceptions of reality and you control

your own terms, if it looks

"If you want happiness for an hour- take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day- go fishing.
If you want happiness for a month- get married.
If you want happiness for a year- inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime- help others."

approved this message.
"Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle
wakes up.  It knows that it must run
faster than the fastest lion or it will be
killed.  Every morning a lion wakes up.  It
knows that it must run faster than the
slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.
 It doesn't matter whether you are a lion
or a gazelle - when the sun comes up,
you had better be running."

They Thought They Were Free

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I was not a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.
