Viewing: Simplicity - View All Posts

KRYSTAL 


Since 1932. Small in size but not in flavor. A thin, all-beef burger patty grilled to perfection and topped with diced onions, tasty mustard and a juicy dill pickle, all on a square, steamy bun. Simple, small, square...delicious. By the sack-full!
 

A NEW DAY 



Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.

Some blunders and absurdities 
no doubt have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.

Tomorrow is a new day;

begin it well and serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with 
your old nonsense.

This day is all that is

good and fair. 
It is too dear,

with its hopes and invitations,

to waste a moment on yesterdays.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

IN MY SOLITUDE 



"I live in that solitude which is painful in youth,
but delicious in the years of maturity."
~Albert Einstein

"I never found a companion that was
so companionable as solitude."
~Henry David Thoreau

"It is not necessary that you leave the house.
Remain at your table and listen.
Do not even listen, only wait.
Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone.
The world will present itself to you for its unmasking . . .
in ecstasy it will writhe at your feet."
~Franz Kafka

"Solitude gives birth to the original in us."
~Thomas Mann

"Solitude is the salt of personhood.
It brings out the authentic flavor of every experience."
~May Sarton

"Talents are best nurtured in solitude:
character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world."
~Goethe

RANGE 



1959
"When a man with .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said,
the man with a pistol's a dead man.
Let's see if that's true. Go ahead: load up and shoot."

1966
"You see in this world there's two kinds of people my friend:
those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig."

1971
"I know what you're thinking. 'Did he fire six shots or only five?'
Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself.
But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world,
and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself
one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya? Punk?"

2008
"Get off my lawn."
