some quoted from Tao te Ching:

Quote:

Who accepts nature's flow becomes all-cherishing;
Being all-cherishing he becomes impartial;
Being impartial he becomes magnanimous;
Being magnanimous he becomes natural;
Being natural he becomes one with the Way;
Being one with the Way he becomes immortal:
Though his body will decay, the Way will not.




Quote:

Some are filled with life;
Some are empty with death;
Some hold fast to life, and thereby perish,
For life is an abstraction.

Those who are filled with life
Need not fear tigers and rhinos in the wilds,
Nor wear armour and shields in battle;
The rhinoceros finds no place in them for its horn,
The tiger no place for its claw,
The soldier no place for a weapon,
For death finds no place in them.




Quote:

Endurance is to keep one's place;
Long life it is to die and not perish.

The Cycle Song

...The years flow by with ceaseless turn,
the Ageless die, the young return.
Shadows sprout and grow by day -
Man falls short along the way.
Poets' words on pinion'd wing
outlast the ruin time can bring.
The seeds are sown, they live and die
forgotten as the years flow by...

I'm much better at keeping secrets from myself than I am from others.


Good to know. I'll make sure to remember never to tell you any.

The Mark and Ed Show... I'm in, sounds like a good way to meet chicks.

anyway, I think I've got it now, the secret of life is contained within the following quote:
Quote:

What we've come up with can be reduced to two fundamental concepts. One, people are not wearing enough hats. Two, Matter is energy. In the universe, there are many energy fields, which we cannot normally percieve. Some energies have a spiritual source, which act upon a person's soul. However, this soul does not exist automatically, as orthodox Christianity teaches, but has to be brought into existence by a process of guided self-observation. However, this is rarely achieved due to mankind's unique ability to be distracted from spiritual matters by everyday trivia.

I couldn't say if the secret to life is in the quote but I'm pretty sure the quote is in the meaning of life.

I think this one is at least...

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

Eleanor Roosevelt

oh. yes, you are correct.
I thought it was a double-meaning, so was just going with it. still, I needed that hit to the head.

lets see if I can stop being rediculus for 5 minutes...

The secret of life is...asking the right questions.
