"My kingdom," said Jesus, "doesn't consist of what you see around you.
If it did, my followers would fight so that I wouldn't be handed over to the Jews.

But I'm not that kind of king, not the world's kind of king."


~John 18:36 (The Message)

He then asked, "And you—what are you saying about me? Who am I?"

God's greatness flows around our incompleteness;
Round our restlessness, his rest.

They thought they were seeing a ghost and were scared half to death.

He continued with them, "Don't be upset, and don't let all these doubting questions take over. Look at my hands; look at my feet—it's really me. Touch me. Look me over from head to toe. A ghost doesn't have muscle and bone like this."

As he said this, he showed them his hands and feet. They still couldn't believe what they were seeing. It was too much; it seemed too good to be true.

He asked, "Do you have any food here?"

They gave him a piece of leftover fish they had cooked. He took it and ate it right before their eyes.

There are two great days in a person's life -- the day we are born and the day we discover why.

on this note, and perhaps on the flip side of this coin, i recently read a quote that i won't source because it's off the top of my head, but here it is anyway:

"To philosophize is to learn how to die."

no one remembers the day they were born, that birth is result of two other people having sex

the sex act is the 'why' one is born
discovering sex is an eventful day.

The Roman philosopher, Cicero, is the source, I believe.

Those who apply themselves to philosophy in the proper
way are doing no more nor less than to prepare themselves
for the moment of dying and the state of death

– Plato.

that's the whole brutal joke, isn't it? we're self-aware. we become aware of the fact that we are one day no longer going to be. the contemplation of non-existence is terrifying.

I'm a rolling thunder, a pouring rain
I'm comin' on like a hurricane
My lightning's flashing across the sky
You're only young but you're gonna die
I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives
Nobody's putting up a fight
I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell
I'm gonna get you, Satan get you

Hell's Bells
Yeah, Hell's Bells
You got me ringing Hell's Bells
My temperature's high, Hell's Bells
I'll give you black sensations up and down your spine
If you're into evil you're a friend of mine
See my white light flashing as I split the night
'Cause if good's on the left, ['cause if God's on the left]
Then I'm stickin' to the right
I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives
Nobody's puttin' up a fight
I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell
I'm gonna get you, Satan get you
Hell's Bells
Yeah, Hell's Bells
You got me ringing Hell's Bells
My temperature's high, Hell's Bells

Hell's Bells, Satan's comin' to you
Hell's Bells, he's ringing them now
Hell's Bells, the temperature's high
Hell's Bells, across the sky
Hell's Bells, they're takin' you down
Hell's Bells, they're draggin' you around
Hell's Bells, gonna split the night
Hell's Bells, there's no way to fight, yeah
Ow, ow, ow, ow
Hell's Bells

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

~C.S. Lewis

While I'm a great fan of C.S. Lewis, I think I must disagree with this quote of his.

First off, BOTH the robber baron and the moral busy bodies torment with the approval of their consciences. The former could care less that he is doing wrong,the latter doesn't realize they are doing wrong. BOTH will stop their torment provided that they get what they want.

But only with the moral busybodies can their be any hope of appealing to their reason, their very sense of morality.

Like a lot of the so-called wisdom floating around this day, Lewis's quote sounds true until you start to really think about it. It's appealing because it caters to our natural desire to do whatever we want with out anybody getting in our way.
