parting thoughts to 2009

Freedom is for honest people. No man who is not himself honest can be free – he is his own trap. - unknown

People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I've learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one's reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one's master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person's view requires to be faked. And if one gains the immediate purpose of the lie - the price one pays is the destruction of that which was intended to serve. The man who lies to the world, is the world's slave from then on. - Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982)

Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment, full effort is full victory. - Gandhi (1869 - 1948)


The path to the truth is found in the spaces between the lies. - Rain Bojangles

Everything secret degenerates, even the administration of justice; nothing is safe that does not show how it can bear discussion and publicity. - Lord Acton

No good ending can be expected in the absence of the right beginning. It is too late. - I Ching

Self-conceit may lead to self-destruction. - Aesop

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end. - Seneca

When small men begin to cast big shadows it means the sun is about to set. - Lyn Yutang

There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning. - Louis L'Amour

Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. - St. Francis of Assisi

What the caterpillar calls the end the rest of the world calls a butterfly. - Lao Tzu



Wishing you all the best for 2010 - the hope and promise of a new year.

初戀的帝寶論壇魚訊階段每個週末他開車載著她,以逃離台北全套服務的心情訪遍山巔水涯。熱戀外送網每個週末他們屏東援交開始煩惱:究竟要去什麼地方?原來台中全套外送的版圖,終究也有屏東一夜情它的界限!台中援交妹的版圖,其實是自己的屏東全套那一顆心。而台中一夜留言板的版圖,卻是在放下屏東外送茶那一顆心之後,才開始無遠弗屆地啟程了。
