If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?

Remember this well you people who plan for war. Remember this you patriots, you fierce ones, you spawners of hate, you inventors of slogans. Remember this as you have never remembered anything else in your lives. We are men of peace, we are men who work and we want no quarrel. But if you destroy our peace, if you take away our work, if you try to range us one against the other, we will know what to do. If you tell us to make the world safe for democracy we will take you seriously and by god and by Christ we will make it so. We will use the guns you force upon us, we will use them to defend our very lives, and the menace to our lives does not lie on the other side of a nomansland that was set apart without our consent. It lies within our own boundaries here and now. We have seen it and we know it.

If our Gods and our hopes are nothing but scientific phenomena, then let us admit it must be said that our love is scientific as well.
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don't
owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to
put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission,
don't even start asking for theirs.

George Carlin on "God Bless America!":
Listen. There are 200 countries in the world now. Do these people honestly think that God is sitting around picking out his favorites? Why would he do that? Why would God have a favorite country? And why would it be America out of all the countries? Because you have the most money? Because he likes our National Anthem? Maybe it's because he heard we have 18 delicious flavors of Classic Rice-A-Roni! It's delusional thinking! And America is not alone with this sort of delusions. Military cemeteries around the world are packed with brainwashed dead soldiers who were convinced God was on their side. America prays for God to destroy our enemies. Our enemies pray for God to destroy us. Somebody's gonna be disappointed. Somebody's wasting their ****ing time. Could it be...everyone?

Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

Even though I'm not affliated with any religion this quote has always stuck with particularly in regards to people who are fond of saying 'I'm a Christian' a lot.

There's this book title by Erma Bombeck that I like to quote out loud whenever I've made the wrong choice:

If life is a bowl of cherries, what I am doing in the pits?

Hey Mox!!!! Long time, no "e"!! I love Erma Bombeck stuff. Here's another classic:

I haven't trusted polls since I read that 62% of women had affairs during their lunch hour. I've never met a woman in my life who would give up lunch for sex.

Ah Erma! Never was there a wiser woman who spoke more truth!

When your mother asks, "Do you want a piece of advice?" it is a mere formality. It doesn't matter if you answer yes or no. You're going to get it anyway.

Contenment is not the fulfillment of what you want, but the realization of how much you already have.
