Kenneth: [on coffee] I love how it makes me feel. It's like my heart is trying to hug my brain!

I am a city man, Dear Reader. Such exertions are not in my physical vocabulary.

Attention is like energy, in that without it, no work can be done, and in doing work, it is dissipated. We create ourselves by how we invest this energy. Memories, thoughts, and feelings are all shaped by how we use it. And it is an energy under our control, to do with as we please. Hence, attention is our most important tool in the task of improving the quality of experience.

from Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience


Religious people go to church to pray that they won’t go to hell. Spiritual people go to church because they have already been to hell, and pray that they never go back.

Mae West

When women go wrong, men go right after them.

Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.

A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up.

Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.

I believe that it's better to be looked over than it is to be overlooked.

I didn't discover curves; I only uncovered them.

The curve is more powerful than the sword.

I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

I've been in more laps than a napkin.

Save a boyfriend for a rainy day - and another, in case it doesn't rain.

A hard man is good to find.

To err is human, but it feels divine.

When I'm good I'm very, very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better.

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

If I asked for a cup of coffee, someone would search for the double meaning.

Good sex is like good Bridge. If you don't have a good partner, you'd better have a good hand.

Mulla Nasrudin

Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.
