In a fight between a strong technique and a strong body, technique will prevail. In a fight between a strong mind and a strong technique, mind will prevail, because it will find the weak point.

Human beings are afraid of dying. They are always running after something: money, honor, and pleasure. But if you had to die now, what would you want?

If I had to die right now, I would want to go home and spend my last few days with my child and celebrate life the best of my ability. Dance, listen to some music, paint, write, and sit on the beach and watch the sunset and sunrise. :75:

“To reach an understanding of Aikido as love, you have to be shinken [completely focused; as if wielding a real sword]. You need to commit yourself, body and soul. Without a wholehearted focus, you won;t be able to effectively love yourself or someone else. You can´t half-heartedly achieve a true love. It has to be shinken. It must be real.”
― Linda Holiday, Journey to the Heart of Aikido: The Teachings of Motomichi Anno Sensei

There is a great Tai Chi quote I´ve read that I can´t find or the life of me now...

Something about when we accept and are not afraid of the possibility of loss, we stand a much greater chance of winning.

It was obviously put much more eloquently though. Wish I could find it.

I could find many more excellent lines he wrote.

His is an all time classic speaking voice.
That droning , nasal Midwest accent.

Love hearing him speak and read his works.

"Men of convictions are prisoners. They do not see far enough, they do not see what is blow them: whereas a man who would talk to any purpose about value and non-value must be able to see five hundred convictions beneath him - and behind him... A mind that aspires to great things, and that wills the means thereto, is necessarily sceptical. Freedom from any sort of conviction belongs to strength, and to an independent point of view.."

I really hate quoting Ted Nugent but....

“ if it’s too loud You’re too old!”

I gotta agree with that sentiment!

That’s what I tell all the other people in my apt. Complex.

Sitar......cranked thru a Marshall stack!!

Hey when I moved in here the whole place smelled of curry.

It cost me almost $300 to eliminate it.

I love a good curry or vindaloo but not 24-7.

What really pisses me off is the $800 deposit + 35 dollars a month in cat rent !
Tuesday is a clean and well behaved kitty!

I like my neighbors.....it’s management that sucks!

Damn ! I am feisty tonight.

"Cat rent?"

I never knew there was such a thing.

(Aquarius) Leo Moon » fishscales
Yes!! I didn’t know about it either.
That $800 dollar deposit was on top of my own security deposit.

They will fuck You coming and going!

The new management of my complex has signs all over advertising “pet friendly apartments”.”!!!
