Is it written in the stars

Are we paying for some crime

Is that all that we are good for

Just a stretch of mortal time

For some twisted experiment

In which we have no say

In which we're given paradise

only for a day…”

“Written in the Stars” from Aida

Do not weep, maiden, for war is kind.

Because your lover threw wild hands toward the sky

And the affrighted steed ran on alone,

Do not weep.

War is kind.

Hoarse, booming drums of the regiment,

Little souls who thirst for fight,

These men were born to drill and die.

The unexplained glory flies above them,

Great is the battle-god, great, and his kingdom --

A field where a thousand corpses lie.

Do not weep, babe, for war is kind.

Because your father tumbled in the yellow trenches,

Raged at his breast, gulped and died,

Do not weep.

War is kind.

Swift blazing flag of the regiment,

Eagle with crest of red and gold,

These men were born to drill and die.

Point for them the virtue of slaughter,

Make plain to them the excellence of killing

And a field where a thousand corpses lie.

Mother whose heart hung humble as a button

On the bright splendid shroud of your son,

Do not weep.

War is kind.

"War is Kind" Stephen Crane

I lack character I bleed in oath to show my self The world it spits
destroys inner strength breaking the foundations that hold and
strengthen, with conformity wide and well in our time we hold no
past nor future but dwell in that of ever present, without our dues
seen Genuine. Look for me not in the cage of society search for me in
the blues of truth i would be the weed swaying in the deep rolling
mist then the flower pruned to perfection my soul screams for many
things but freedom is all it needs feed my soul do not let it be
tethered but engulfed in the flames of the free, the creative the
selfless themselves.
This may seemedd cliched and crappy but I love this poem cause I wrote it my self.

None of these sayings are mine, I have heard before and decided I liked um.

I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.

Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.

There are very few problems that cannot be solved by orders ending with "or die."

If the whole world depends on today's youth, I can't see the world lasting another 100 years.


The object of war is not to die for your country, but to make the other bastard die for his.

A mind is a terrible thing to ... Oooh! Just a sec, more e-mail.


Earthquakes don't kill people. Houses do.


Guns don't kill people -- they just make it real easy.

MITCH: The weirdest thing just happened to me.

CHRIS: Was it a dream where you were standing in sort of sun-god robes on top of a pyramid, and there were hundreds of naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at you?

MITCH: No...

CHRIS: Why am I the only one who has that dream?

-Neal Israel

Life ... is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that no one ever asks for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So, you're stuck with mostly indefinable whipped mint crap, mindlessly wolfed down when there's nothing else to eat while you're watching the game. Sure, once in a while you get a peanut butter cup or an English toffee but it's gone too fast and the taste is fleeting. In the end, you're left with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth shattering nuts, which if you are desperate enough to eat leaves nothing but an empty box of useless brown paper wrappers.X-Files, Cigarette Smoking Man

I think we are all willing to have a little bit of crud in our lungs and a full stomach rather than a whole bunch of clean air and nothing to eat. And I don't want a bunch of environmentalists and Communists telling me what's good for me and my family.

'Just say no' has done as much for drugs and sex as 'have a nice day' has for depression.
