I'm a William Shakespeare fan, and have repeated so many quotes of his, that they are not so inspiring any more, so mathematics instead

One of my favourites as it was effectively telling the authorities to take a flying leap at a rolling doughnut:

‘Eppur si muove” - Galileo

Basically translates to albeit it still moves, this is what he said immediately after being forced to recant the blasphemy that the Earth moves around the Sun and not vice versa which the Vatican wanted to keep pushing for reasons of the usual human condition.  The said condition being believing that as they were in charge, what they said had to ALL be taken as the word of the divine.  A bit like some governments!

I'm a fan of ancient Roman quotes - Marcus Aurelius in particular.

This is not from him though, but from Roman General Vegetius (Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus).

The original phrase was "Igitur qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum." which translates to "Therefore let him who desires peace get ready for war".

It is most often abbreviated to "Si vi pacem para bellum" - translates to "If you want peace, prepare for war".

I loved Latin. Every Monday we were told: "Thursday is named ofter the Norse God of thunder so it is "Thors Day" So on Wednesday you are writing a test and if you don't get full marks,on Thor's day you shall get dondered." It never happened ,instead we sat for hours awe struck with stories of battles and murders and shenanigans of life 2000 years ago.

Like my father and his father  we studied Latin through English medium. This makes sense as English ,like French, Italian and Spanish  derived from Latin. When we were in standard 9 we were suddenly forced to study Latin in Afrikaans. This made absolutely no sense as Afrikaans is a Germanic language and therefore has no correlation at all with Latin. The much loved fierce little man with the huge moustache gave way to a beautiful young lady we all fell in love with but with it our love of Latin,and our marks, died.

To be pedantic (which I am - sorry) English is actually a Germanic language - the name being derived from the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that settled in England after the Romans left. Old English like Beowulf looks just like German. Think of the sentences "my pen is in my hand" and "my hand is in warm water" which mean virtually the same thing in English and Afrikaans. However, English has been greatly influenced by Latin (as the language of learning and religion for centuries) and French when the Normans ruled, so it has many words from those languages. English has always been and is still a complete slut of a language which just gobbles up words from any other language as it suits.

On my word. So English is Germanic. What is Afrikaans then because the way we talks Inglish so deliciously surely means they can't be related op enige manier? And Dutch? The way my mother in law converses in English  is really fun to experience.

 For us 16 year old boys,even as stoere Vrystaat stock, the Latin tenses in English made sense (after a good few Thor's Days) but the Latin tenses in Afrikaans were just plain hilarious.

As an Englishman I’m always happy that my mother tongue is a free for all from languages across the European spectrum.  As a moonraker I enjoy the local dialect even more (particularly its boisterousness).  Here’s a short sample (from whence we gets oor name):

Down Vizes way zom years agoo,
When smuggal'n wur nuthen new,
An people wurden nar bit shy,
Of who they did their sperrits buy.
In a village liv'd a publican,
Whi kept an Inn, The Pelican,
A man he wur, a man a merrit
An his neam wur Ikey Perritt.
Ael roun about tha country voke
Tha praise of thease yer landlard spoke;
Var wen any on'em wur took bad,
They knaw'd wur sperrits could be had;
An daly it wur nice an handy,
At tha Pelican to get yer brandy.
Twer zwold as chep as tis in Vrance,
Tho a course, twer done in iggerance.
One winter, Crismis time about,
Thease lanlords tubs as ael ran out.
Zays he, this yer's a purty goo,
Var mwore what ever shall I do;
Thie smugglin Zam's a purty chap,
Ta lave I here wieout a drap;
An wen a promised dree months back,
A hooden vail ta bring me whack.
Bit praps tha zizevoke voun his trail,
An med a pop'd inta jail,
Howsemdever, I'll zen and zee,
Ta marrer wats become a he.
Zoo nex day at nite he off did start,
Two girt chaps wie a donkey cart.
Ta Bristil town thay took ther way,
An got there as twer gettin day;
Tha smugglers house tha zoon voun out,
An tould'n wat they wur com about.
Ael rite, zays he, I've plenty bye,
Bit we mist keep a cuteish eye,
Var tha zize voke, they be in tha watch,
An two or dree have lately cotch.
Zoo tell woold Perritt thats tha razin
I coudden zen avore ta pleaz un.
Soo wen twur dark thase smuggler bwold,
Got dree tubs vrim a zacrit hould;
An unobsarved he purty smart,
Zoon clap'd em in tha donkey cart;
An tha top a covered up we hay,
Then zent tha chaps an cart away;
Ael droo tha streets quite zaef an zound,
Thay zoon jog'd out a Bristil town.
An vore tha vull moon ad rose,
To ther neative pleace, wur drawin close;
Wen to ther girt astonishment,
Thay met wie a awkurd accident,
In passin auver Cannins Brudge,
Tha stubborn donkey hooden budge;
Tha chaps thay leather'd well his back,
Bit a diden keer var ther attack;
Bit jibb'd an beller'd, shook his mean
Then kick'd bouth shafts right off za clane.
Up went tha cart, tha tubs vill out,
An in tha road zood roll'd about;
An vore tha chaps cood ardly look,
Ael dree ad roll'd straite in tha brook.
Well here's a purty goo zays one,
Why will, wat ever's to be done?
I'd like ta kill thic donkey quite,
If thee wurst, zays Tom, tid zar un rite.
Doost knaa wat tha matter wur?
I thinks a got a vorester;
Var I nevir knaw'd un hack like this,
Unless zummit wur much amiss.
Look at un now he's in a scare,
An gwain as hard as he can tare;
We bouth shafts danglin on tha groun,
A wunt stop till he gets wom I'm bown.
Zoo let un, I dwoant keer a snap,
Var then thay'll gace thease yer mishap;
An zen zumbiddy on tha road,
Ta help ess get wom saef tha load.
Bit zounds, while thus we do delay,
Tha tubs, begar, ull swim away;
We mist get em out at any price,
Tho' the water be as cwoold as ice.
Dwoant stan geapin zo, var goodness zeak,
Run to thic rick an vind a reak;
I thinks that I can reak em out,
Var ther thay be swimmin about.
Two reaks wur got, an then thaese two
Did reak an splaish we much ado;
Bit nar a tub diden lan,
Thay hooden zeem ta com ta han.
Zays Tom, I'm tired a tha job,
An hooden a tuck un var ten bob;
I ad a mine ta let em goo,
An zoo I will if thee hoot to.
Get out, girt stup, we mist get in,
Tho we do get wet ta tha skin.
Till never do ta let em be,
Zo tuck thee pants up roun thee knee.
Tha chaps then took tha water bwould,
Tho thay wur shram'd ni we tha could;
An jist as thay did heave one out,
Ael at once a feller loud did shout--
HEL'OH, me lads, wat up to there,
NIGHT POACHERS, ah, if teant I swear.
Let goo, zays Will, I'm blow'd if tent,
Vizes excizemen on tha scent;
Push off tha tub var goodness zeak,
Get out tha brook, teak hould a reak;
Reak at tha moon a shinin zee,
An dwoant thee spake, I'll tackle he,
Bit av ad a mishap as ya see.
Comin frum Vize we donkey cart,
On tha bridge tha donk mead zudden start;
An jirk'd, an jib'd, then gied a kick,
An het bwouth shafts off purty quick.
Out went our things wich as ya zees,
Lays ael about, an yer's a cheese;
He roll'd rite on straite in thease brook,
An Tom's a reakun vor'un look!
Tha Zizeman swallered ael o't in,
An ta zee Tom reakun, gun ta grin,
Girt vool, zays he, as true's I'm barn,
Why that's tha moon, thee beest reakun vor'n
An then a busted out agean,
An zed of ael, that beat all clean;
Ta zee a crazy headed coon,
Reak at the shadder of the moon.
Will wink'd at Tom, Tom wink'd at Will,
Ta zee how nice he'd took tha pill;
Ah, zur, you med laff as long as ya please,
Bit we be zure it be a cheese.
Zee how he shows hisself za plain,
Com Tom, lets reak vor he again.
Zo slap an dash went on reakin,
While Zizeman he var vun wur sheakin;
An off a went houlden his zide,
Var longer there a cooden bide.
We grinnin his eyes did auverflow,
Ta zee thay chaps a reakin zo;
An ta think that now he'd tould em zo,
Tha girt vools hooden ther frake vergo.
Zoo up a got upon his hoss,
An as tha brudge a went across,
He zet up another harty grin,
Wen a look'd an zeed em bouth get in;
An zed girt vools till zar em rite,
If thay da ketch ther deaths ta nite.
Bit wen he ad got clane away,
Tha tubs wur got wieout delay;
And hid away, quite zeaf and zoun,
Var a dark nite wen tha moon wur down.
Then at the Pelican thease chaps,
Purty zoon wur tellen ther mishaps;
Bit ael ther troubles they vergot,
Wen they'd emptyied well tha landloards pot,
An wen he a coose did pay em well
Thease little stowry not ta tell;
Zo wen tha Zizemin nex did com,
Woold Perritt he a coose wur mum.
An in a glass did jine wie glee,
Wen Zizemin twould tha tale ta he;
Bit he laff'd mwore wen zeaf one nite
Tha tubs wur brought wom snug an tite;
An many a bumper went a round,
To think thay'd beat tha Zizemin zound.
Bit he tha tale did zoon let out
To ael the countery roun about;
An to thease day, people da teeze,
All Wilsheer voke about tha cheese.
Bit tis thay as can avourd ta grin,
To zee ow nice a wur took in.
Zoo wen out thease county you da goo,
An voke da poke ther vun at you;

And then bust out in ael yer glowry,

To use more modern parlance:

TL:DR version

Places in Wiltshire at the time were getting booze delivered by bootleggers and smugglers because the taxes were too high for the local people.  A famous landlord had a smuggling ring going on to beat the taxes and bring in booze (Ikey Perritt with his accomplices Tom and Will).  They had the booze part way there when the taxmen (excise men) caught up with them (the poem above also blames the donkey for being stubborn and the barrels ending up in the pond - that’s the Devizes version, I was brought up on the Draycott version of the same story, both featured Devizes excise men).  So they weighted down the barrels and hid them in a pond, donned local farmer outfits and started raking the pond surface.  The taxmen asked what they were doing, they responded that they were raking the reflection of the moon to gather cheese because that was what the moon was made of.  Taxmen decided they must be stupid country folk and left to find the smugglers, they used the rakes to retrieve the barrels then continued on to Bristol (some versions, Swindon area others, London in a few, Devizes in others) with them safe in the knowledge that the taxmen were ahead of them and therefore beaten.

Final edit:  as with all folk tales there are many versions.  Whilst editing the above précis I have been happily recalling the versions I heard from grandparents, parents, other relatives, publicans and through local newspapers.  I expect there are many versions I haven’t heard, but one thing that is always clear is that Wiltshire folk are Moonrakers and we beat dem excise men!

99.9% of the school-leavers I talked to went on to get degrees and a job thereafter and I'm sure forgot the talk the moment they left the hall.   There was one young lady who was fascinated by the talk and really took it to heart.  She started by paying her friends to sort out unwanted junk from their homes, collecting it and reselling it

Within a year she got her dad to buy her a bakkie and was collecting office waste.   Within 7 years she had 10, 4-ton trucks similar to the Council use to collect waste and employed 22 guys to man these trucks and collect most types of waste.

I was invited to her wedding and by that time she had bought a smart house in Constantia.  Her husband was an Orthopaedic Surgeon and immensely proud of her achievements

During the wedding speech, she mentioned the talk I had given some 15 years earlier which had inspired her to think out the box and do something for herself

So, never mind saving for retirement , spend it now on lifestyle. You might leave tomorrow anyway.  Worry about it when it happens.

So, you are only at peace when you are spending? You can only be content with a lavish lifestyle? “Living” by your definition is having and procuring “things”.
If so, you do not know the meaning of peace.

Ignorance can be overcome by education, but arrogance is more difficult to combat.
When combined, arrogant ignorance is virtually impossible to defeat.
Because of this, it is spreading rapidly. People in denial refuse to examine evidence, often adamantly.

Trompie, not knocking you at all. I am but a simple man and what I find with so many if these "Hindu" quotes is that they are very confusing, very wordy and have no message. How do you hope for a better past. Hope refers yo a future and the past is the past... this quote and many like it are meant for far wiser men than I.

No stress. :)

This was also part of the 12 step program, and AFAIK was originally phrased as "Forgiving yourself means giving up hope for a better past." - it was a way of helping recovering addicts to deal with the wrongs they had done to others (loved ones in particular) through their addiction.

Hardly wordy. Good quote IMO. People cling to their past- or bring their past into their present- often. Thus they have hope/longing (the timeline can get muddled for such people) for a better "past" which they have kept alive, which keeps them them from forgiving.
A friend's sister, who has lurched through disastrous relationships (and is a worse one now), still has a beef with my friend for (allegedly, at 14 years old) stealing her boyfriend some 42 years ago. She hopes for a better past, I can assure you.

Post by: Trompie67 on October 14, 2020, 03:50:28 PM
Who remembers the movie "Time"?

Taken from the theme:

... It’s very simple

Throughout the universe there is order
In the movement of the planets
In nature and in the functioning of the human mind

A mind that in its natural state of order
Is in harmony with the universe
And such a mind is timeless

Your life is an expression of your mind
You are the creator of your own universe

For as a human being you are free to will
Whatever state of being you desire
Through the use of your thoughts and words

There is great power there

It can be a blessing …. or a curse
It’s entirely up to you
For the quality of your life is brought about
By the quality of your thinking
Think about that

Thoughts produce actions.
Look at what you are thinking
See the pettiness …. and the envy and greed and fear
And all the other attitudes that cause you pain and discomfort

Realise that the one thing you have
absolute control over
Is your attitude

See the effect that it has on those around you
For each life is linked to all life
And your words carry with them chain reactions
Like a stone that is thrown into a pond

If your thinking is in order
Your words will flow directly from the heart
Creating ripples of love

If you truly want to change your world my friend
You must change your thinking

Reason is your greatest tool
It creates an atmosphere of understanding
Which leads to caring, which is …. love

Choose your words with care ….
go forth with Love

Narration by Sir Laurence Olivier

An Airbus 380 is on its way across the Atlantic. It flies consistently at 800 km/h in 30,000 feet, when suddenly a Eurofighter with Tempo Mach 2 appears.
The pilot of the fighter jet slows down, flies alongside the Airbus and greets the pilot of the passenger plane by radio: "Airbus flight, boring flight isn’t it? Take care and have a look here!”

He rolls his jet on its back, accelerates, breaks through the sound barrier, rises rapidly to a dizzying height, only to swoop down almost to sea level in a breathtaking dive. He loops back next to the Airbus and asks, "Well, how was that?"

The Airbus pilot answers: "Very impressive, but now have a look here!"

The jet pilot watches the Airbus, but nothing happens. It continues to fly stubbornly straight, with the same speed. After five minutes, the Airbus pilot radioed, "Well, what are you saying now?"

The jet pilot asks confused: "What did you do?" The other laughs and says, "I got up, stretched my legs, went to the back of the flight to the bathroom, got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon cake and made an appointment with the stewardess for the next three nights - in a 5 Star hotel, which is paid for by my employer. "

The moral of the story is:
When you are young, speed and adrenaline seems to be great. But as you get older and wiser, comfort and peace are not to be despised either.
This is called S.O.S.: Slower, Older, Smarter.

We are paper thin. We exist on luck amid the percentages, temporarily. And that’s the best part and the worst part, the temporal factor. And there’s nothing you can do about it. You can sit on top of a mountain and meditate for decades and it’s not going to alter. You can alter yourself into acceptability but maybe that’s wrong too. Maybe we think too much.

The frightened individual seeks for somebody or something to tie his self to; he cannot bear to be his own individual self any longer, and he tries frantically to get rid of it and to feel security again by the elimination of this burden: the self.

When at last each man realizes that nothing is to be expected from God, or society, or friends, or benevolent tyrants, or democratic governments, or saints, or saviours, or even from the holiest of holies, education, when each man realizes that he must work with his own hands to save himself, and that he need expect no mercy, perhaps then . . . Perhaps! Even then, seeing what manner of men we are, I doubt.

I believe in work. If somebody doesn't create something, however small it may be, he gets sick. An awful lot of people feel that they're treading water -- that if they vanished in smoke, it wouldn't mean anything at all in this world. And that's a despairing and destructive feeling.

"It is obvious that man kills to cleanse the earth of tainted ones; and that is what victory means and how it commemorates his life and power: man is bloodthirsty to ward off the flow of his own blood. And it seems further, out of the war experiences of recent times, when man sees that he is trapped and excluded from longer earthly duration, he says, "If I can't have it, then neither can you."

Is this not the matrix of an efficient critique of ideology — not only in 'totalitarian' conditions of censorship but, perhaps even more, in the more refined conditions of liberal censorship? One starts by agreeing that one has all the freedoms one wants — then one merely adds that the only thing missing is the 'red ink': we 'feel free' because we lack the very language to articulate our unfreedom. What this lack of red ink means is that, today, all the main terms we use to designate the present conflict — 'war on terrorism', 'democracy and freedom', 'human rights', and so on — are false terms, mystifying our perception of the situation instead of allowing us to think it. In this precise sense, our 'freedoms' themselves serve to mask and sustain our deeper unfreedom.

People who claim to be absolutely convinced that their stand is the only right one are dangerous. Such conviction is the essence not only of dogmatism, but of its more destructive cousin, fanaticism. It blocks off the user from learning new truth, and it is a dead giveaway of unconscious doubt. The person then has to double his or her protests in order to quiet not only the opposition but his or her own unconscious doubts as well.

We are an exceptional model of the human race.
We no longer know how to produce food.
We no longer can heal ourselves.
We no longer raise our young.
We have forgotten the names of the stars, fail to notice the phases of the moon.
We do not know the plants and they no longer protect us.
We tell ourselves we are the most powerful specimens of our kind who have ever lived. But when the lights are off we are helpless.
We cannot move without traffic signals.
We must attend classes in order to learn by rote numbered steps toward love or how to breast-feed our baby.
We justify anything, anything at all by the need to maintain our way of life.
And then we go to the doctor and tell the professionals we have no life.
We have a simple test for making decisions: our way of life, which we cleverly call our standard of living, must not change except to grow yet more grand.
We have a simple reality we live with each and every day: our way of life is killing us.

The truth that Dostoevsky puts in the mouth of the Grand Inquisitor is that humankind has never sought freedom, and never will. The secular religions of modern times tell us that humans yearn to be free; and it is true that they find restraint of any kind irksome. Yet it is rare that individuals value their freedom more than the comfort that comes with servility, and rarer still for whole peoples to do so.

This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.”

Understanding comes when we liberate ourselves from the old and so make possible a direct, unmediated contact with the new, the mystery, moment by moment, of our existence.

My father always said, “early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”
It was lights out at 8 p.m. in our house and we were up at dawn to the smell of coffee, frying bacon and scrambled eggs.

My father followed this general routine for a lifetime and died young, broke, and, I think, not too wise.

Taking note, I rejected his advice and it became, for me, late to bed and late to rise.
Now, I’m not saying that I’ve conquered the world but I’ve avoided numberless early traffic jams, bypassed some common pitfalls and have met some strange, wonderful people one of whom was myself—someone my father never knew.

He is indeed. I've read all his writings except the poetry. I do not enjoy poetry in any form ( :angrywife: says I am an uneducated heathen!  :nutter: ).

I perceive his writings as firmly based in stoicism, and thus enjoy, just as I enjoy Cleanthes, Epictetus, Aurelius, and of course Zeno. Other less known stoics also feature in our reading: Frankl, Taleb, Steinbeck, Stockdale & more.

One whom I do not enjoy at all, is Seneca. He certainly wrote about stoicism & virtues, but did very little to emulate the values in real life.

There will come a day for each of us - and then for all of us - when the future will be done with. Until then, humanity will acclimate itself to every new horror that comes knocking, as it has done from the very beginning. It will go on and on until it stops. And the horror will go on, with generations falling into the future like so many bodies into open graves. The horror handed down to us will be handed down to others like a scandalous heirloom. Being alive: decades of waking up on time, then trudging through another round of moods, sensations, thoughts, cravings - the complete gamut of agitations - and finally flopping into bed to sweat in the pitch of dead sleep or simmer in the phantasmagorias that molest our dreaming minds.

Behind every successful man...


One day, the Churchill couple walked through a posh neighbourhood in London.

People greeted and exchanged words with the Prime Minister.

A street sweeper, on the other hand, greeted Mrs Churchill in particular, and the two stayed aside for a while in a familiar conversation.

Churchill then asked his wife what she had to discuss with a street sweeper for so long.

"Ah . . . he was in love with me a long time ago," she said.

Churchill smiled and said, "You see, if you had married him, you would be the wife of a street sweeper today."

Mrs. Churchill looked at her husband in amazement and said the legendary words:

"No, Darling.  If I had married him, he would be Prime Minister today."
