Welcome to some random musings - a few quotes i like, some jokes, and maybe even some of my thoughts

"There are six billion human beings, and in a certain way, I think we need five billion different religions. I believe that each individual should embark upon a spiritual path that is best suited to his or her mental disposition, natural inclination, temperament, belief, family and cultural background."  Dalai Lama. - this is something I feel very deeply

God is sitting in heaven when a scientist prays to Him. "God, we don't need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing - in other words, we can now do what you did in the beginning." "Oh, is that so? Tell Me..." replies God. "Well," says the scientist, "we can take dirt and form it into the likeness of you and breath life into it, thus creating man." "Well, that's very Me." So the scientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the soil into the shape of a man. "No, no, no..." interrupts God, "Get your own dirt."

For every evil under the sun
There is a remedy or there is none
If there be one, seek till you find it
If there be none, never mind it.

"Life does not count by years. Some suffer a lifetime in a day, and so grow old between the rising and the setting of the sun."
  Augusta Jane Evans (1835-1909)American novelist

"We should try never to let our happy frame of mind be disturbed. Whether we are suffering at present or have suffered in the past, there is no reason to be unhappy. If we can remedy it, why be unhappy? And if we cannot, what use is there in being depressed about it? That just adds more unhappiness and does no good at all."
  His holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso

or to put it another way,

Worry needn't consume you. "if there is a solution to a problem, there is no need to worry. And if there is no solution, there is no need to worry" The Dalai Lama. It's so logical and obvious that it's easily overlooked

I've learned that expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting a bull not to charge you because you're a vegetarian.

The difference between "genius" and "stupidity" is that genius has limits.

'Understanding women' is an oxymoron. You never really understand them.
If you're lucky you survive them.
