I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain

~Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life that a man takes his whole universe for a vast practical joke

~Melville, Moby Dick chp XCIII

The universe is profoundly indifferent to individual beliefs and desires and philosophies. Why you would imagine it otherwise? Life is far too brief, existence is meaningless and the universe has no purpose. This universe is a pretty grim place, but that does not mean it has to be dull and boring. Each of us is here for a comparative instant then we are gone. The universe doesn’t notice us when we are here and it certainly does not miss us when we are gone. We’re nothing but unified arrangements of atoms and particles, drifting around enjoying consciousness every now and then for a second or so before splitting up to become bits and pieces of trees and stars and french fries. Those companion particles continue drifting though the cosmos, enjoying a kind of fragmented immortality. When you clump together more or less accidentally it might be a part of a rock or another person.. or a french fry.

~Arthwit Rail, Glorylane pages 111-112

Bring us a pitcher of beer every seven minutes until somebody passes out. And then bring one every ten minutes.

~ Rodney Dangerfield in Back to School

For my German Side

Das Leben ist zu kurz, preiswertes Bier zu trinken
"Life is too short to drink cheap beer"

~German brewer

For those that are Irish and all the rest the wish they were

An Irishman is never drunk as long as
He can hold onto one blade of grass and not
Fall off the face of the earth.

~Irish toast Author unknown

It's not that the Irish are cynical. It's rather that they have a wonderful lack of respect for everything and everybody.

~Brendan Behan

What is wrong?

When we drink we get drink....
When we get drunk we fall asleep....
When we are asleep we commit no sin
When we commit no sin we go to Heaven..

That is why we drink....

~an Irish Toast

"God invented whiskey to keep the Irish from taking over the world"

~quoted by daitengu From a sign he saw

A description of Myself as suggested by fezabel

What shall I say about the Irishman?
The utterly impractical, never predictable,
Something irascible, quite inexplicable, Irish.

Strange blend of shyness, pride and conceit
And stubborn refusal to bow in defeat.
He's spoiling and ready to argue and fight,
Yet the smile of a child fills his soul with delight.

His eyes are the quickest to well up in tears,
Yet his strength is the strongest to banish your fears.

His faith is as fierce as his devotion is grand
And there's no middle ground on which he will stand.

He's wild and he's gentle, he's good and he's bad,
He's proud and he's humble, he's happy and sad.

He's in love with the ocean, the earth and the skies,
He's enamored with beauty wherever it lies.

He's victor and victim, a star and a clod,
But mostly he's Irish and in love with his God.

~ Anonymous Irish woman
