Now that you've found it, it's gone
Now that you feel it, you don't
You've gone off the rails

The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man

365 3/26

You can say I was on anything but a roll
If I had a conscience, well, I just might blow my top
What would I do with it anyway
Maybe take it to the pawn shop

365 3/25

Oh, these are the days
These are the strangest of all
These are the nights
These are the darkest to fall
But who knows?

And yet the men joke, laugh, stroll across the foot-wide beams as though they are on solid ground.
To the people on the sidewalk, tiny as ants below, the sky walkers appear entirely unafraid.

Everything secret degenerates, even the administration of justice;
nothing is safe that does not show it can bear discussion and publicity.

365 3/22

I don't know why, but I keep thinking 
Something's bound to go wrong
But she looks in my eyes 
And makes me realize

365 3/21

I'm walking through time
Deluded as the next guy
Pretending and hoping to find
That distant peace of mind

More Light

365 3/19

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
The universe exploding 'cos-a one man's lie
Look I gotta go, yeah, I'm running out of change;
There's a lot of things if I could I'd rearrange

Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.

365 3/16

Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political
and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 
'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'

365 3/15

Today I know that all things are watching, that nothing goes unseen,
that even wallpaper has a better memory than human beings.

365 3/14

... a majority of ministers, state secretaries and advisors acted 
as classic populists attuned to the shifting moods. 
They bought public approval or at least indifference a new every day.
By giving and taking away, they built a dictatorship of consent
with consistent majority appeal.

Das war ein Vorspiel nur; 
dort wo man bucher verbrennt,
verbrennt man auch am ende menschen.

That was just a prelude;
where you burn books, you end up burning people.

365 3/11

People of power kill children, the old send the young to die, because they have no imagination.
They have power.
Can you have power and imagination at the same time?
Can you kill people you don't know and have compassion for them at the same time?

365 3/6

It's a very fine line
But you've got the mind child
To carry on
When it's just about to be
Carried on...

365 3/5

The past is not dead, it is living in us,
And will be alive in the future which we are now helping to make.

365 3/4

Time is the substance I am made of.
Time is a river which sweeps me along,
But I am the river;

Distance in a straight line has no mystery.
They mystery is in the sphere.

365 3/1

Every life is many days, day after day.
We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants,
old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-law.
But always meeting ourselves.
