"It is not length of life, but depth of life." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Thought breeds thought." ~ Henry David Thoreau
When all else fails, claim it's rigged.
"I put the fires out."
"you made them worse."
There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
This was always one of my favorite myths.
