I'm able to grin, and think of the places....

Your Score: The Places You'll Go

You scored: 42% Grinchification ; 50% Cathatitude ; 71% Loraxity ; 50% Hoponpoppiness

You are: Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Oh, The Places You'll Go! is a story about setting out into the world. When it comes to being nice, you're fairly average; you can compromise when it's needed, but you like to get your own way when you can. You're very observant about the world around you, and are more likely to get involved with political or activist causes. You also tend to be more down to earth than whimsical.

The lower your Grinchification score, the nicer you are.
The higher your Cathatitude/Hoponpoppiness score, the more whimsical and creative you are.
The higher your Loraxity score, the more concerned you are with the world around you, politics and activism.

Thursday Verses: Knots

(I know it's not Thursday yet, but I'm going to be busy tomorrow. Also for most of the weekend, so I won't be doing much blog stuff 'til next week)

Reminds me of teaching, especially in that first year.

"Knots" (1970)
- R. D. Laing [via]

There is something I don't know
that I am supposed to know.
I don't know what it is I don't know,
and yet I am supposed to know,
And I feel I look stupid
if I seem both not to know it
and not know what it is I don't know.
Therefore, I pretend I know it.
There is nerve-wracking since I don't
know what I must pretend to know.
Therefore, I pretend I know everything.

Quotations #095

"A truth that's told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent." -- William Blake

"The truth of a proposition has nothing to do with its credibility. And vice versa." -- Robert A. Heinlein.

"The first reaction to truth is hatred." -- Tertullian

"One of the most untruthful things possible, you know, is a collection of facts, because they can be made to appear so many different ways." -- Karl Menninger

"Breach of promise is a base surrender of truth." -- Mohandas Gandhi

Picture: Caged Butterflies

What really struck me about these pictures is that the shadow of the butterfly enclosure is easily visible on their wings.
I could go on about what it means, but it's pretty obvious.
