Quote of the Day – August 13 2012

“Of all the frictional resistances, the one that most retards human movement is ignorance, what Buddha called ‘the greatest evil in the world.’
The friction which results from ignorance can be reduced only by the spread of knowledge and the unification of the heterogeneous elements of humanity. No effort could be better spent.”
– Nikola Tesla

I’ve been listening to William Shatner cover songs all day and going to see Macbeth (or should I say ‘the Scottish Play’ for are we not all actors, especially when we act according to our natures) tonight so am feeling a bit well bloody minded? Nah just feeling the world and hopefully it is a pleasant feeling for us both.
Ignorance can be tricky. We all have areas of ignorance and have so much trouble admitting that fact so often… I don’t get why. I mean ignorance enlightened can feel as good or almost as good as sex in the right situation. When all of a sudden something is understood that wasn’t before, it’s orgasmic or at least i feel that way.
Blessings, G

  1. Excellent Bill Clinton quote from Spectacle with Elvis Costello that I just remembered:

    “Just because you’re not the soloist doesn’t mean you aren’t an important member of the band.”

    Everyone’s important to the song of life. Everyone’s contributions, skills should count and matter.

  2. Exactly right, a friend of mine used to say “If we were exactly alike, one of us wouldn’t have to be here” 🙂
