Thanks Lemur for reminding me and giving me that perspective.
yeaH good one Dr Phil.
i think ive seen that kinda thing before.. hmm
ONE day Zarathustra had fallen asleep under a fig-tree..
And there came an adder and bit him in the neck, so that Zarathustra cried with pain. It wriggled awkwardly, and tried to get away. "Do not go," said Zarathustra, "as yet have you not received my thanks! you have awakened me in time; my journey is yet long." "Your journey is short," said the adder sadly; "my poison is fatal."
When you have an enemy, then do not requite him good for evil: for that would shame him. Instead, prove that he did some good for you.
I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.-Matthew 5:39-45 (NIV)
well at least yer kickin it old school!
ah yes uhm.

whoever wants fame must take leave of honor and practice the difficult art of- leaving at the right time.
One must stop being eaten when one tastes best: those who want to be long loved know this.
