Quote 5 - 7 - 12

don_socalMay 7, 2012

Subconscious - that infuriating part of a person's brain which never responds to interrogation, merely gives little meaningful nudges and then sits humming quietly to itself, saying nothing.

Douglas Adams

One off the gladest moments in human life, methinks is the departure upon a distant journey to unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of Routine, the cloak of many Cares and the Slavery of Home, man feels once more happy. The blood flows with the fast circulation of childhood....afresh dawns the morn of life...

Sir Richard Francis Burton

Journal Entry (2December1856)

I wonder whether any other generation has seen such astounding revolutions of data and values as those through which we have lived. Scarcely anything material or established which I was brought up to believe was permanent and vital, has lasted. Everything I was sure or taught to be sure was impossible, has happened.

Winston Churchill

Like all three quotes equally. Often wonder what is going on subconsciously when at an completely unrelated moment something drops out of the file folder in the brain.

For me, going on the spur of the moment to someplace I have never been, has always been the most fun.

Just thinking, all the people even from just 50 years back, what would they make of today, the good and the bad?
