 As I've Matured...   

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is
stalk them and hope they panic and give in...

I've learned that one good turn gets most of the blankets.

I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it. 

I've learned that whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed. 

I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others -
they are more screwed up than you

 I've learned that depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

I've learned that it is not what you wear; it is how you take it off. 

I've learned that you can keep vomiting long after you think you're finished. 

 I've learned to not sweat the petty things, and not pet the sweaty things.    

  I've learned that ex's are like fungus, and keep coming back.

  I've learned age is a very high price to pay for maturity. 

I've learned that I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy it. 

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do,
unless we are celebrities.

I've learned that artificial intelligence is no match for natural

I've learned that 99% of the time when something isn't working
in your house, one of your kids did it

I've learned that there is a fine line between genius and insanity. 

I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon and
all the less important ones just never go away.
And the real pains in the ass are permanent.

Pass this site address to 5 me, they'll appreciate it.
Who knows,maybe something good will happen.  If not...tough!

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
George Washington (1732 - 1799)
There isn’t much better in this life than finding a way to spend a few hours in conversation with people you respect and love. You have to carve this time out of your life because you aren’t really living without it.
Real Live Preacher,


Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

There is no old age. There is, as there always was, just you.

Carol Matthau,

The opposite of the religious fanatic is not the fanatical atheist but the gentle cynic who cares not whether there is a god or not.
Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983)
Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, s/he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.
Brain: an apparatus with which we think we think.
