THEY SAID IT BEST!


"Show me a man with both feet firmly on the ground,
and I'll show you a man who can't get his pants off."
- Author Unknown

"God has no religion." - Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948)

"If government were a product, selling it would be illegal. Government is a health hazard. Governments have killed many more people than cigarettes or unbuckled seat belts ever have. Government contains impure ingredients - as anybody who's looked at Congress can tell you... Government should be against the law. Term limits aren't enough. We need jail." - P.J. O'Rourke

"Progress may have been a good thing once, but it's gone on far too long." - Ogden Nash



"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

"There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." - Albert Einstein

"We cannot solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." - Albert Einstein

"If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live." - Lin Yutang

"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time." - Bertrand Russell

I have purchased your book recently and I am almost finish reading it now. While reading it, I felt anger over the lodging, amused by the Temuan beliefs and their humor. It's a good book and I'm hoping that I would be able to get a copy of your previous book, Adoi. Mr. Antares, please write more.
Love your book,
Evy

Thank you so much for making me feel good, Evy! I have a few yellowed copies of ADOI! left from 1989 but you'll have to visit me to get a signed copy :-) Email me for directions! Yes, I like Gandhi's quote very much too. It's a bit like:
"Does God believe in humans?"

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose. Nothin' ain't worth nothin' but it's free.

Have a great week!
It's Delani, by the way.

Yo, Lee Wen! High time you returned to renew your Magick River visa! :-)

Delani! What a delicious surprise... hey! You a blogger too? How sweet to see your name here... would be even sweeter to bump into you again (so rarely in KL, what more in places where we might meet!) Tell u what... drag that fat fler and your cutie angel son over to Kg Pertak and grab some fresh air and splish-splash, how about that? :-)
