It was on fire when I got here. . . I swear!

The purpose of life, is to live.
1 November 1974
This is It and I am It and You are It and so is That and He is It And She is It and It is It and That is That. -- Alan Watts

Science as the pursuit of truth is the equal, but not the superior, of art.
--Bertrand Russell

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore."
- Mark Twain

"“Be disciplined in your life so you can be violent and original in your art.” -- IF

"There is more in heaven and earth than is dreamt of in your philosophy, because your philosophy sucks" ;)

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everyone goes 'Awwww!'"

- Jack Kerouac

“Got tight last night on absinthe. Did knife tricks.” —Hemingway

Check out the Quixotic Project quixotic_burn:

We're heading out from Detroit to the desert outside Reno, Nv at the 2005 Burning Man festival to build three 20' Dutch style Windmills. Amid dust storms and 70 mph winds we will take these three moving embodiments of peoples fears and nightmares and burn them down in a mad rush of knights with flaming lances.
