So I'm looking through a randomized listing of quotes, and I see this one:
"An intellectual snob is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture and not think of The Lone Ranger."
So when I listen to the William Tell Overture, I think of a marching drill where a bow and arrow is formed and then shot off into an apple of flags... or I think of one of the the few songs in the pep band folder that I have 100% (ok 95%) memorized.
...does that mean I'm an 'intellectual snob'?
haha...another good one:
"Imagine if every Thursday your shoes exploded if you tied them the usual way. This happens to us all the time with computers, and nobody thinks of complaining."
On a more serious, thought provoking note, some quotes from my Zen page-a-day calendar:
"Chasing after fantasies is always a bad idea. Stick with reality. Reality’s all you’ve got. But here’s the real secret, the real miracle: It’s enough."
"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away."
-Philip K. Dick
"Lose your mind and come to your senses."
"Seeing into one’s own nature."
Hui-Neng's definition of Zen.
"In a dark time, the eye begins to see."
"We must agree on what matters: kissing in public places, bacon sandwiches, disagreement, cutting-edge fashion, literature, generosity, water, a more equitable distribution of the world’s resources, movies, music, freedom of thought, beauty, love."
As Homer said:
"There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep."
...and now it's time to stop the words and time to start the sleep.
