I am a personal optimist but a skeptic about all else. What may sound to some like anger is really nothing more than sympathetic contempt. I view my species with a combination of wonder and pity, and I root for its destruction. And please don't confuse my point of view with cynicism; the real cynics are the ones who tell you everything's gonna be all right.

There's no present. There's only the immediate future and the recent past.

Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

No.3 was the advice my doctor gave me when I started chemo.
What a wonderful week. No way can I follow up likewise.
Thanks, Lilo.

Lilo, what a great week of great quotes! I never knew that George Carlin had so much wisdom. Lots of cynicism to go with it, but still wise and worth reading and remembering.

Thanks a bunch! :>)
