All that is gold does not glitter,

Not all those who wander are lost;

The old that is strong does not wither,

Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

 

JRR Tolkien

A man can dig himself a hole with his mouth , than he can with just about anything else.. 
and never faster or deeper , than when black silk stockings are involved.

"The television, that insidious beast, that Medusa which freezes a billion people to stone every night, staring fixedly, that Siren which called and sang and promised so much and gave, after all, so little." - Ray Bradbury

I think Alexander The Great said that first.

 

 

Alex told me he learned it reading spiderman comics!

 

Anyway, the quote was supposed to serve as a simple homage to Stan Lee's passage through planeta Earth. May he rest in peace.

Fair.  I'm glad I commented so that you could respond.  Yes, I saw that he has passed.  But he will be remembered for a very long time.

The eye of discretion will enable him to see the mature charm that belongs to men and women in old age, as well as the seductive bloom  that is youth's.  Things of this sort will not appeal to everyone;  he alone who has cultivated a real intimacy with Nature and her works will be struck by them.-- Marcus Aurelius

What is really demanded in the Church of Whatever is not ability but, inability. Then you are considered teachable. Your bowing and scraping to  whatever religion, caste or organization is required for advancement.  A truly able person is always considered a threat and  the kind of intellectual prostration necessary, to maintain your hierarchy, is a low quality of life.--- Phaedrus in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

William James put it best:

“A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.”
also-
“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”
