Lynyrd Skynyrd

“What I do you cannot do; but what you do, I cannot do. The needs are great, and none of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.”

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not

what your country can do for you – ask what

you can do for your country. My fellow

citizens of the world: ask not what

America will do for you, but what together

we can do for the freedom of man.”

John F Kennedy

“Leadership is based on inspiration, not domination; on cooperation, not intimidation.”

William Arthur Ward

We can work together for a better world with men and women of goodwill, those who radiate the intrinsic goodness of humankind.”

Wangari Maathai

Each one of us can make a difference. Together we make change.

Barbara Mikulski

“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?”

Henry David Thoreau

“I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.”

John Cage

“Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace.”

Dwight David Eisenhower

“I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.”

Mahatma Gandhi

“The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.”

Babe Ruth

“You mean, you’ll put down your rock and I’ll put down my sword and we’ll try and kill each other like civilized people?”

The Princess Bride

“We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.”


“Duct tape is like the Force.

It has a light side, a dark side, and

it holds the universe together….”

    Obviously Choctaws ain’t no different from forked tongues.

    “We must all hang together, or we will surely all hang separately.” – Ben Franklin

    Seems to me that ol’ Ben wasn’t talking about getting along with most anybody calling themselves a Democrat.

    One favorites from Ben Franklin was his description of mobs: “many heads, no brains.”

    Could describe lots of groups.

    A couple of quotes from Plato:

    I exhort you also to take part in the great combat, which is the combat of life, and greater than every other earthly conflict.

    He was a wise man who invented beer.

    My Brunehilde says Valhalla is for women and dogs only.  Some consider Plato wise in spite of being a man. Gives some hope she is wrong for once.

    “Let’s all get along” is what the victors say to the vanquished as the victors relieve their victims of all they have.

    Best,  Terry

    These posts remind me of the hippies of the 60s and 70s–and that’s an excellent thing.  However, the hippies grew up to be the fucking boomers that put bushie into office and they care more about money than they care about others.  Obviously, some turned out okay–but some had money hungry kids that also vote for the evils.

    Some of my best draft dodging friends are now ex friends because of politics.  Enough with the words and pictures–more disruption in the streets is needed.  We need a new Tea Party–and a new Democratic Party.  Bob Dylan and friends failed to end Nam quickly–street demonstrations did.

    Don’t take this too personally–I’m in a very pissy mood.  As of now, I am a citizen of the world’s most destructive country.  It’s been a long time since I wore tie dye and was intimidated by cops.  I thought that day was done–I’m old and I’m bald–my drugs come from a pharmacy, not a kid on the corner–I’m retired from the job that got me my draft deferment.  The enemy only knows force–beauty is not in their vernaculum.

    i ramble and rant–my bad.

  4. of my community radio’s rock and roll nightime program and requested Lynard skynard’s ‘Free Bird’.  We rocked the night away, not on the front porch, the dsignated place for elederly women of indeterminate age, but over the raduio waves.

    When I used to do a reggae program in my local community on Sunday nights i used to take a break and go out and gaze beyond the stars to the infinite universe and beyond and believe that in indeterminate aeons from now my voice was still sending Bom Marley’s Redemption Song and Robbie robertson’s Broken Arrow to influence and explain this strange extinct race to those who will surely arrive to sift though our ashes some day.

    An old rocker. Reggae rules. Rasta live.  

    have to go now, my grandson, his team is called the Hawks is playing basketball. My presence has been requested.  My Daddy used to tell me, rocking on his knee ‘there is no such word as CAN’T’

    wait til i tell you all about my next adventure, it is simmering in the pot.

  5. leave the midnight hour wihtout blasting the skies, whether the moon was full over the mountain or the skies were cloudy with snow, or bright with tomorrow’s blistering heat. it was the incomparable Ruben Blades and ‘Nothing but the Truth’. It has always been my soul anthem.

    That to me would be the anthem of change we are all paying homage to.
