Quote of the day

From the "Only in LA" department - coming out of a convenience store in LA,  I overhear a lady offering to buy the homeless dude outside the store a cup of coffee... homeless dude says "I don't want a cup of coffee,  I want a fresh cappuccino." Then he looks at me and repeats "I want a fresh cappuccino." Right on dude,  hold out for your dreams.

Quote of the day

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.


1 Corinthians 13

Broken relationships are like broken glass. Sometimes it's better to leave it broken than to hurt yourself putting it back together.

Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak; sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go.

Quote of the day

This, spoken in fiction by an Islamic fundamentalist, is obviously taken out of context, but nonetheless holds some truth (and no, it's not in the last line of the quote) :
"You overestimate the people of this nation. They are soft and stupid. The reason political correctness and multiculturalism exist is because they are too lazy to hold others to what it once meant to be American. This nation is dying and we are not the problem; we are the solution. Islam-true, pure Islam- is what will save America. "
from "The Last Patriot" by Brad Thor

"Absence diminishes little passion
and increases great ones, as wind
extinguishes candles and fans a fire."
