If you try and take a cat apart to see how it works, the first thing you have on your hands is a non-working cat.”   —   Douglas Adams

(This guy, Adams, died at age 49 from a heart attack!  He must have lived a very hard/wild life, because he looks ancient for 49, to me.  I’m 59, pushing 60, and I look at least 10 years younger than he did shortly before he kicked it.  I guess I should count my blessings!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I used to hitchhike, as a teen.  I don’t think I’d recommend it for teens these days.  Too many wackos out there nowadays.  Fortunately, I didn’t have to rely on showing my legs.  I still pick up the occasional hitchhiker though.  Much more control of the situation when you’re the decider.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I’d take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.”   —   Douglas Adams

(First off, a little confession.  I saw the name, Douglas Adams, and I thought:  Oh, the guy who draws/writes “Dilbert“!  Doh!  That’s Scott Adams.  This is an interesting quote, but I  sensed a tone of sarcasm here, and I saw conflict in the use of “awe”.  But likely, that’s due to my personal bias of the word “awe”.  I’ve always associated the word more with admiration and wonderment.  But, the word can swing all the way to fear and stupefaction.  Two words that are synonymous with ignorance in my book.  The best way to overcome fear is through understanding.  I don’t buy the excuse: “I just don’t like it”, when someone objects to the notion of being ignorant, or fearing something or someone.  At the very least we need to practice empathy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
