Gene Roddenberry | Memorial Spaceflights

Many a man fails as an original thinker simply because his memory is too good.”   —   Nietzsche

(Yep.  Lot’s of folks seem to think that they’re some kind of genius, and every idea they have is original!  What is that old quote/saying about no original ideas since the Greeks?  . . . which is a crock to begin with!  Everything is pretty derivative of things that came before.  Some pretty cool things came from Gene Roddenberry’s brain though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time.”   —   Nietzsche

(I used to try to put that positive spin on people with Alzheimer’s.  But, with them there’s a lot of frustration and fear.  And, nobody enjoys those things.  Be well and do good, friends!

Hey, Happy Earth Day!  Do something good today, like plant a tree or bush, or go around picking up litter, and put it in its place.  Hopefully, something like a recycling bin.  It’s a BIG day for birthdays today!  Too many to mention them all, so I’ll give you my personal favorites.  The Incomparable Jack Nicholson is 81, the Marvelous Mel Carter is 79, the Genius John Waters is 72, Rock singers Peter Frampton and Paul Carrack are 68 and 67, respectively.  And, actor Joe Bottoms is 64.  A slew of others under 60, so Happy Birthday to all the rest.  Or, LAL HET SERT as Jeff Knurek would say!)   —   YUR

No small art it is to sleep; it is necessary to keep awake all day for that purpose.”   —   Nietzsche

(He must’ve said this as a young man, because I can nap once, or twice, a day and still sleep at night . . . just fine.   Be well and do good, friends.  Happy Father’s Day!)   —   YUR

He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.”   —  Nietzsche

(Accepting baby steps takes a certain kind of . . . maturity.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

He who has a why to live for can bear with almost any how.”   — Nietzsche
