About belief or lack of belief in an afterlife: Some of you may know that I am neither Christian nor Jewish nor Buddhist, nor a conventionally religious person of any sort.
I am a humanist, which means, in part, that I have tried to behave decently without any expectation of rewards or punishments after I'm dead. My German-American ancestors, the earliest of whom settled in our Middle West about the time of our Civil War, called themselves "Freethinkers," which is the same sort of thing. My great grandfather Clemens Vonnegut wrote, for example, "If what Jesus said was good, what can it matter whether he was God or not?"
I myself have written, "If it weren't for the message of mercy and pity in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, I wouldn't want to be a human being. I would just as soon be a rattlesnake."
~ Kurt Vonnegut ~
Kurt Vonnegut (/ˈvɒnəɡət/;[1] November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007) was an American writer.

George Bernard Shaw quote: Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.


George Bernard Shaw[1] (26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic, polemicist and political activist. His influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman (1902), Pygmalion (1912) and Saint Joan (1923). With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation, and in 1925 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a dramatic portrayal of the bombing of Guernica by German and Italian air forces during the Spanish Civil War.

I am convinced that love is the most durable power in the world. It is not an expression of impractical idealism, but of practical realism. Far from being the pious injunction of a Utopian dreamer, love is an absolute necessity for the survival of our civilization. To return hate for hate does nothing but intensify the existence of evil in the universe. Someone must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate and evil, and this can only be done through love.

Closed minds seek out information that only bolsters what they think that they know.


 Open minds, let new information in, ESPECIALLY INFORMATION  that contradicts what they think that they know. This is sincerely contemplated and used to try to prove IN THEIR MINDS what they think they know is wrong. Then they learn 1 of 2 things.

  1. Something new that they couldn't have learned with a closed mind
  2. That they must be RIGHT because taking on the role of devil's advocate couldn't prove themselves wrong.

This is practicing the scientific method.

Surrounding ourselves with people that have the same view as us and same closed mind is called an echo chamber. Intentionally reinforcing each other and those they come in contact with using the same views  is the recipe for NOT learning anything new....when that something new, no matter how authentic it is.... contradicts WHAT THEY THINK THEY KNOW.

Social views

Neeson was criticised for his comments on Ireland's Late Late Show in January 2018, during which he described the Me Too movement as a "witch hunt"[87] and cited Garrison Keillor's dismissal from Minnesota Public Radio as an example.[88]

In February 2019, Neeson gained public and media controversy after a press junket interview he had conducted with The Independent while promoting Cold Pursuit, a film about a father seeking revenge for his son's murder.[89][90] He said that he generated his character's "primal" anger by recounting an experience he had 40 years ago, in which a female friend of his had been raped by a stranger. After learning that the attacker was a black man, Neeson said that he spent a week going "up and down areas with a cosh, hoping some 'black bastard' would come out of a pub and have a go" so that Neeson "could kill him". In the interview, he also said he was ashamed of the experience and that the things he did and said were "horrible". He said, "It's awful [...] but I did learn a lesson from it, when I eventually thought, 'What the fuck are you doing?'"[91][92]

In an appearance on Good Morning America, Neeson elaborated on his comments while denying being a racist, stating that he asked for physical attributes of the rapist other than his race and that he would have done the same if the rapist was "a Scot or a Brit or a Lithuanian".[93] He also said that he had purposely gone into "black areas of the city" but that he "did seek help" and counseling from his friends and a priest after coming to his senses. He said that the lesson of his experience was "to open up [and] to talk about these things", including toxic masculinity and the underlying "racism and bigotry" in both the U.S. and Northern Ireland. The controversy caused by his comments led to cancellation of the red carpet event for the premiere of Cold Pursuit.[94][95] Neeson was also defended by Michelle Rodriguez,[96] Whoopi Goldberg,[97] John Barnes[98] and Ralph Fiennes.

Quotes Of The Day 23 March 2022

Make space in your life for the things that matter, for family and friends, love and generosity, fun and joy. Without this, you will burn out in mid-career and wonder where your life went. 

 Many a times, we are the ones that close the door to the things that matters most in our lives. 

When you learn to keep your door open for good things, you will soon find them living with you.

Everybody should be appreciated for their unique talents, even if society does not place great value on them and even more so, everybody should be respected as human beings, regardless of the level of the God given talents/attributes they were born with.

In that same vein, those blessed with unusual talents/achievements, whether they had them from blessed genetics or whether they worked their butts off to acquire them(work ethic mentality is a gift)............owe it to the rest of the world to generously share them!

Failing to do so, is wasting the biggest opportunity of all, by a wide margin to use them.

Motivational Quote Of The Day - May 9, 2019 - Ave Mateiu

Booker Taliaferro Washington (April 5, 1856 – November 14, 1915)[1] was an American educator, author, orator, and adviser to several presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African-American community and of the contemporary black elite.[2] Washington was from the last generation of black American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants. They were newly oppressed in the South by disenfranchisement and the Jim Crow discriminatory laws enacted in the post-Reconstruction Southern states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
