Five Quotes From Leonard Cohen

________________________________________________________________________________________________

It's hard to hold the hand of anyone
who is reaching for the sky just to surrender.
*
How can I begin anything new
with all of yesterday in me?
*
The last refuge of the insomniac
is a sense of superiority 
to the sleeping world.
*
Reality is one of the possibilities
I cannot afford to ignore.
*
All of us are footnotes
to the words of Chuck Berry.

They Will Say You're Good ... And Then They Will Say Goodbye

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Play the game
play the ball
till your talent
is ten feet tall

Kick the ball
through the 
goal posts

They will cheer...
they will drink
to you they 
will toast

They will cheer
they will drink
and say 
you are 
the most

...
...

Play the game
play the ball
till your age 
is nothing small

Then they kick you
through the 
old posts

They will cheer
they will drink
someone new
is now the most

They will cheer
they will drink
but to them 
you are now toast

CarPeo Set Piece ... [#63] ... Up From The Coast

________________________________________________________________________________________________



Inland from the Catalina coast,
we ascended a long road
with a 35ยบ incline.

The maximum speed 
for the golf cart
was 15 mph.

But the birthday girl
(and her chauffeur)
could not have been
happier.

Of course,
there were rest stops
along the road
where her eyes
could not have
opened wider.

From HIS Side Of Paradise

________________________________________________________________________________________________

There was something most passionate in Eleanor's reading aloud. They seemed nearer, not only mentally, but physically, when they read, than when she was in his arms, and this was often, for they fell half into love almost from the first. Yet was Amory capable of love now? He could, as always, run through the emotions in a half hour, but even while they revelled in their imaginations, he knew that neither of them could care as he had cared once before—I suppose that was why they turned to Brooke, and Swinburne, and Shelley. Their chance was to make everything fine and finished and rich and imaginative; they must bend tiny golden tentacles from his imagination to hers, that would take the place of the great, deep love that was never so near, yet never so much of a dream.

A Letter To President Trump About ... How To Avoid Impeachment

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Donald
You need to do two simple things:

1. Drop 59 Tomahawk Missiles on Syria.

2. Attack an Isis tunnel network with
   the "Mother of All Bombs."

No Congress in its right mind would dare
dislodge a President who initiates war
with two countries.

Quite the contrary, for challenging Assad 
and his chemical warfare, you will be
praised to the heavens. 

Sincerely,

Paul Oliverio

But the world would be
a safer place
if you made not
another sound.

2,780,000,000 Is Almost THREE Times 963,000,000

Approximately 2,780,000,000 websites


Approximately 963,000,000 websites

If worship of the almighty dollar
qualifies as a religious belief
then it is indisputable:
A primary cause
of every war
is Religion.



BUT
if the furniture movers
of the world could remove
all religion and replace it
with furniture...

And nations went to war
over whoopee cushions
and wooden work tables...


The Masters of Furniture
could almost triple
the number of wars
in this world!

THEREFORE

we should be grateful that
Furniture ≠ God

Because we cannot afford
anymore wars on this planet,
particularly President Trump's
bomb thump in Syria.
