Anything more is a waste of words, like these.


Failure is always an option, and sometimes, even a choice. The key is learning from the experience of failure than allowing it to decide your reaction.

In the End

In the end.
That's it. That's all.
Nothing more.
Just the end.

Waking Up

I go to bed every night hoping that quietly in the night something would change and I would wake up in the morning finding myself and my life better than yesterday, and hoping I would be happy about what happened overnight, quietly while I slept.

Yet I go to bed knowing it's all wishful thinking, and nothing really happens overnight to change myself and my life for the better, but still, I always go to bed hoping anyway.

Expressing sympathy and especially empathy, for something for which you have no experience, especially when there is no way you would ever have that experience, always comes off as condescension, almost always producing the opposite reaction than you intend.

To put it simply, just don't. Don't talk about something to express sympathy or empathy you don't understand from personal experience, especially when you start with, "I've never...", meaning had the experience, but you think you understand. You don't.

So it is wise to follow the old adage about keeping silent than speaking. It is better to express yourself with friendship than with advice.

The problem with thinking of something when you go to sleep but don't want to get up to write it down, is that in the morning you remember you had something to remember, you just can't remember what it was.

Why is fairness the one thing everyone agree is the right thing to do, but is always the hardest thing do actually do?

Chance of Rain

What exactly is the chance when they forecast, "Chance of precipitation is 100%"? If there is 0% chance of no preciptation, where's the chance of it? Not even Las Vegas would take the best with those odds, except there's always a fool somewhere who'll gladly part with their money.

Some Things

Some things don't end as planned, expected or hoped, but just end, good, bad or indifferent, and how it ends depends on the song being sung by those standing there.

Take Heart

Take heart of your youth when you're young, for there will be a moment in your life you realize it was and not is, and in that moment you will see what everyone else has been telling you is true, what you missed in your youth is gone, once and forever.

Feel & Think

Feel with your mind and think with your heart. Teach them to see what the other knows. Teach them to understand the whole of life, of you, and of the world.

I don't trip, stumble and fall. Gravity is just playing a practical joke on me when I wasn't paying attention.

We are all born beautiful. A few keep being called beautiful by the luck of their genes. The rest of us lose it shortly into our life and have to earn being called beautiful back, if we're lucky, which is rare. So what changed, or maybe the word is misplaced at the beginning of our life and should be used at the end of our life? Not so much to describe us but to describe us and our life?

A Moment

It takes a lifetime for a person to live to a moment in their life. It only takes a moment for someone to damage, even destroy, that life for the rest of their life. Even yours. Even mine.

The problem with youth is that it's wasted on the young. We've all heard it, so why don't we believe until we're old and we see it in young people what we didn't see when we were young? Because youth is oblivious to understanding age.

You can say what you want, what you deeply believe, but it won't change the facts and it won't change science. You are subject to those whether you believe them or not. You are not immune from them. You can only show your ignorance of them.

Why Two

If they offer you a lifetime guarrantee on their product, why do they offer you a second one for free?

You Know

You know you're old when you see greatest hits albums for bands you've never heard of them let alone listened to any of their songs. And you're know you're old when they say this is one of the most famous groups in the last decade or two and you can't remember them or this songs.

It's time to change your radio station to listen and learn about who's new, to update and refresh your sense of good music. Become young again.
