I have heard many sermons and had many counsels, but I have heard no preacher so effective as my grey hairs, and no counsellor so effectual as the voice of my own conscience.

"Be not envious of evil men, 
nor desire to be with them,  
for their hearts devise violence, 
and their lips talk of trouble." – Proverbs 24:1-2

High Explosive by Andrew Barton Paterson
‘Twas the dingo pup to his dam that said, 
"It’s time I worked for my daily bread. 
Out in the world I intend to go, 
And you’d be surprised at the things I know.

"There’s a wild duck’s nest in a sheltered spot, 
And I’ll go right down and I’ll eat the lot." 
But when he got to his destined prey 
He found that the ducks had flown away.

But an egg was left that would quench his thirst, 
So he bit the egg and it straightway burst. 
It burst with a bang, and he turned and fled, 
For he thought that the egg had shot him dead.

"Oh, mother," he said, "let us clear right out 
Or we’ll lose our lives with the bombs about; 
And it’s lucky I am that I’m not blown up - 
It’s a very hard life," said the dingo pup.

Paul McCartney
I love to hear a choir. I love the humanity… to see the faces of real people devoting themselves to a piece of music. I like the teamwork. It makes me feel optimistic about the human race when I see them cooperating like that.

 

 

A bassist in a band was heard to say:
“I wrote another symphony today!”
The drummer calmly said:
“I’d be happier, instead
if you would spend that time to learn to play!”
