http://pandemo.livejournal.com/907618.html

There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.

2:16a - On Ceremony -- George Gurdjeiff ("Royal Ceremony") SOTFW-ML

http://pandemo.livejournal.com/911136.html

Every ceremony or rite has a value if it is performed without alteration.  A ceremony is a book in which a great deal is written.  Anyone who understands can read it.  One rite often contains more than a hundred books.

                                            ~ George Gurdjeiff

2:52a - On Caring -- Henri Nouwen ("On to Stockholm") SOTFW-ML
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/342134.html

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand.  The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.
    ~ Henri Nouwen

You can't change the past,

http://pandemo.livejournal.com/163442.html

Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous.  It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

12:00p - On Conspiracy Theories ― Gary Hopkins ("Conspiracy Revealed!") SOTFW-ML
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/908000.html

In a world of full of manipulation, half-truths and lies, the conspiracy theory is often a safer bet than the official story.

2:14p - On Computer Translations -- Anonymous ("First Meeting -- The Dream") SOTFW-SC
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/270943.html

It is the dawn of the computer age. A British computer sends an old adage to its Russian counterpart as part of the calibration process.

"Out of sight; out of mind."

The Russian computer dutifully translates the message into Russian, then sends the Russian language version back to the British computer.

The British computer runs it through its translating program, and prints out, "Invisible and insane."
                                              ~ Anonymous joke circulated heavily in the early days of computers
