The Man Comes Around
And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder:
One of the four beasts saying: "Come and see."
And I saw.
And behold, a white horse.
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts,
And I looked and behold: a pale horse.
And his name, that sat on him, was Death.
And Hell followed with him.

 Revelations 6:8
And I looked, and behold a pale horse:
and his name that sat on him was Death,
and Hell followed with him.
And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth,
to kill with sword, and with hunger,
and with death,
and with the beasts of the earth.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance of the eye;
it transcends speech;
it is the bodily symbol of identity.
Highway 61 Revisited
God said to Abraham, kill me a son.
Abe said god you must be putting me on,
God said no,
Abe said what,
God said you can do what you want,
but next time you see me comin, you better run.
Abe said where you want this killin done?
God said out on Highway 61
Saint Francis of Assisi
Where there is hatred,

Faith: not wanting to know what is true.
J. Robert Oppenheimer (quoting the Bhagavad Gita) 16 July, 1945
If the radiance of a thousand suns
were to burst into the sky at once,
that would mirror the Mighty One's splendor....
I am become Death --World-destroyer.
--The Bhagavad Gita

Everything was so much clearer
when it seemed the Germans might get the thing first....
Now it's all so terribly muddy....
Who knows what these generals'll do with it.
...The radiance of a thousand suns....
That 100-foot tower --completely gone!...
If we didn't do it, someone surely would....
I am become Death --destroyer of Worlds.

Sir Athur Eddington
Science is an edged tool with which men play like children,

When the sky is rent asunder,

each soul shall know what it has done

From time to time it is necessary that pestilence, famine, and war prune the luxuriant growth of the human race
Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me, and when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain
Metallica, The Four Horsemen
The horsemen are drawing nearer
On the leather steeds they ride
They have come to take your life
On through the dead of night
With the four horsemen ride
Or choose your fate and die
Dave Barry

All of us are born with a set of instinctive fears--
of falling,
of the dark,
of lobsters,
of falling on lobsters in the dark,
or speaking before a Rotary Club,
and of the words "Some Assembly Required."

Edmond Rostand, 1868-1918
If you kill one, you are a murderer.
If you kill one-million, you are a Conqueror.
If you kill all, you are a God.
Shakespeare - Macbeth

I have almost forgot the taste of fears.
The time has been my senses would have cool'd
To hear a night shriek, and my fell of hair
Would at a dismal treatise rouse and stir
As life were in't. I have supp'd full with horrors;
Direness, familiar to my slaughterous thoughts,
Cannot once start me.

Monty Python, Monty Python and the Holy Grail
A reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:
Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying,
"Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy."
And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ...
Now did the Lord say,
"First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three.
Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three.
Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three.
Five is right out.
Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached,
then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe,
who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
Chuang Tzu
Flow with whatever is happening and let your mind be free.
Stay centred by accepting whatever you are doing.
This is the ultimate.
Dr. Seuss
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living,
it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope
and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning... Smells like victory.
Roy Baty, "Bladerunner"

I say: Know your enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be defeated.
When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal.
If ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, you are sure to be defeated in every battle.

And ten thousand peoploids split into small tribes
Coveting the highest of the sterile skyscrapers
Like packs of dogs assaulting the glass fronts of Love-Me Avenue
