I must update my Quotes page some time soon. Meanwhile, here's one I read from a Russian short story... 

The demon of comparison is a very pretty demon but one of the most contagious. He does not attach himself to the strong – there is not much to be gained from them; but he likes to seduce the little ones. And his seductions are, for the little and weak ones, irresistible.

and a nice Snippet of Pinker...

What kind of mind would do something as useless as inventing ghosts and bribing them for good weather?

            - Steven Pinker, How the Mind Works, Chapter, 8, ‘The Meaning of Life’ P. 556

"We're all looking fo that one very very special person who can spare us the need to mix with everybody else" - Alain De Botton https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Br8m2S98HU4 - Sí, creo que metré esto en la página de CITAS

He aquí mi cita preferida de todo lo que he leído este verano. No es mucho, pero fíjense en la fecha

“Nowadays no one ever pays for books” ("Hoy en día nadie compra libros")

 

2nd Preface to Gerald of Wales’ ‘Description of Wales

 

C 1189

Citas en este sentido (como hace mucho tiempo que no lo he actualizado!):

 

(when challenged by Stephen Colbert to explain 'why there is something rather than nothing in fewer than ten words') –

'Words that make questions may not be questions at all'

(retado por S Colbert a explicar porque hay algo en vez de nada = y en menos de diez palabras:

-Palabras que hacen preguntas puede que no sean del todo preguntas


Neil DeGrasse Tyson

 

An economics degree is a nine thousand dollar lobotomy

Un titulo en ecomomía es una lobotomía de nueve mil dólares


Quoted by economist Prof Steve Keen

 

A person is a person because of people

Una persona es un a persona por las personas


Zulu proverb

Minus times minus equals plus
The reason why, we won't discuss


Hilaire Belloc

 

"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong."

No te fíes de la gente que tiene muchas ganas de castigar


Friedrich Nietzsche

 

"If the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."

Si las palabras -"Vida, Libertad y la Búsqueda de la Felicidad" - no incluyen el derecho a experimentar con tu propia conciencia, pues la Declaración de la Independencia no vale el cáñamo sobre qué está escrita.

 

Terence McKenna

Finally I arrive back in ZGZ for another trip on the Comedy Roller-Coaster. This summer just gone, thanks to my good friends, was a fantastic time from start to finish - from Bardsey island in Wales to Sheppey island off the Kent coast in a sort of offbeat diagonal line.

I left 2 sets of people to edit stuff down from recordings and am eager to hear both 'Aggravations and Acronyms', the latest Peabody and Browning offering... and 4 or 5 of the tracks we laid down at Ratgoose on OCDC's 2nd Album 'Surrender to the Gods of Groove'. They'll be uploaded to this page asap.

I got all the cycling and reaidng in I could have asked for, bolstered by fantastic company and conversation(s). Let's keep the good times rollin' back in 'normality'.
