• We All Have Our Own Demons

    "When I became convinced that the Universe is natural -- that all the ghosts and gods are myths, there entered into my brain, into my soul, into every drop of my blood, the sense, the feeling, the joy of freedom. The walls of my prison crumbled and fell, the dungeon was flooded with light and all the bolts, and bars, and manacles became dust. I was no longer a servant, a serf or a slave. There was for me no master in all the wide world -- not even in infinite space. I was free -- free to think, to express my thoughts -- free to live to my own ideal -- free to live for myself and those I loved -- free to use all my faculties, all my senses -- free to spread imagination's wings -- free to investigate, to guess and dream and hope -- free to judge and determine for myself -- free to reject all ignorant and cruel creeds, all the "inspired" books that savages have produced, and all the barbarous legends of the past -- free from popes and priests -- free from all the "called" and "set apart" -- free from sanctified mistakes and holy lies -- free from the fear of eternal pain -- free from the winged monsters of the night -- free from devils, ghosts and gods. For the first time I was free. There were no prohibited places in all the realms of thought -- no air, no space, where fancy could not spread her painted wings -- no chains for my limbs -- no lashes for my back -- no fires for my flesh -- no master's frown or threat -- no following another's steps -- no need to bow, or cringe, or crawl, or utter lying words. I was free. I stood erect and fearlessly, joyously, faced all worlds. And then my heart was filled with gratitude, with thankfulness, and went out in love to all the heroes, the thinkers who gave their lives for the liberty of hand and brain -- for the freedom of labor and thought -- to those who fell on the fierce fields of war, to those who died in dungeons bound with chains -- to those who proudly mounted scaffold's stairs -- to those whose bones were crushed, whose flesh was scarred and torn -- to those by fire consumed -- to all the wise, the good, the brave of every land, whose thoughts and deeds have given freedom to the sons of men. And then I vowed to grasp the torch that they had held, and hold it high, that light might conquer darkness still." Robert G. Ingersoll (1833-1899)

  • Tell them the truth and they'll thank You later

    "There is a country in the Balkans where the best-looking women live yet there is a declining birth rate...where most work is done by unemployed...where the mostfertile land is yet people are hungry...where everyone rushes to work but no one arrives on time...where an eight-hour working time is 12 hours long...where the health care is free but treatment expensive... where journalists are free to write whatever they are told to...where the government procurement process is a state secret while state secrets are publicly known...where the wars never ends...where history repeats itself every day...where the richest people are those who have never worked...where the smart are declared insane while capable declared crazy...where illiterates write history...where laws are illegal...where court proceedings last longer than life...where honesty, sincerity and diligence will ensure you never reach your desired goals ..."

  • Well...

    They say that life's a carousel
    Spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
    The world is full of Kings and Queens
    Who blind your eyes then steal your dreams
    ...it's Heaven and Hell, oh well

    And they'll tell you black is really white
    The moon is just the sun at night
    And when you walk in golden halls
    You get to keep the gold that falls
    It's Heaven and Hell

    No no fool, fool!
    You got to bleed for the dancer!
    Fool, fool, look for the answer!
    Fool, fool, fool!

  • Otherwise

    ...if there are no ups and downs in your life it means You are dead

    ...in the end, in all its perfection man is the only mistake of evolution...and in the end, it doesn't really matter any more.

    ...Our history is way different then we've been tought in schools, churches...
