-Life isn't fair, but it is still good
-Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present
-The most important sex organ is the brain
-No one is in charge of your happiness but you
-Frame every so called disaster with these words, "In five years, will this matter?"
-What other people think of you is none of your business
-Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does
-Believe in miracles
-If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back
-Life isn't tied in a bow, but it's still a gift
NathanielBlack ~ 06.14.09 David Carradine: In his own words. In Memoriam
Because you know how you say I've got to really get down and really do some training and then of course, you never do or you do it for a couple of weeks and slough it back off again but I'm being forced to do something that I really want to do and I loved it.
But, Tarantino has seen all of my movies. He's seen my good stuff, he's seen my bad stuff, he's seen the ones I directed, he's read my autobiography. There's an awful lot of things he knows about me, all of which I think had something to do with his casting.
I remember when I did the pilot, and I thought no network is going to want to do this. How could that happen? A half Chinese guy walking the old west that doesn't fire one gun and never gets on a horse?
Most actors spend a lot of time training themselves to be an actor. And I kind of didn't do that. I just started doin' it in front of an audience and had to deliver.
Why would you be afraid of death? It would be an inconvenience. I have a lot of undone things and it's bound to get in the way. But, no, it doesn't scare me at all.
You know, I've never actually really believed that death is inevitable. I just think it's a rumor.
There's an alternative. There's always a third way, and it's not a combination of the other two ways. It's a different way.
If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.

There are three classes of men; lovers of wisdom, lovers of honor, and lovers of gain. ~Plato
The keenest sorrow is to recognize ourselves as the sole cause of all our adversities.
Give a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.~Terry Pratchett
SunnyMusic ~ 06.28.09 Ogden Nash: In his own words
-If called by a panther/ don't anther
-You can have my jellyfish/ I'm not sellyfish";
I test my bath before I sit,
And I'm always moved to wonderment
That what chills the finger not a bit
Is so frigid upon the fundament.

Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die; life is a
broken winged bird that cannot fly.
Dream manfully and nobly, and thy dreams shall be prophets. ~Robert Bulwer-Lytton
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty
of their dreams. ~Eleanor Roosevelt
If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps
life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that
helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.
Martin Luther King Jr.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities. ~Dr. Seuss
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try! ~Dr. Seuss
Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So...get on your way! ~Dr. Seuss

Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spent the rest of the day putting the pieces together.
