There was this City cult which, while trying to recruit a new member, reminded him of their motto, “Be all that you can be,” and the potential convert pondered this a moment, and said, “Shit, I’ve already done THAT.”
The intellect in Man is a general system whereby he can apparently make the chaos of life rational. (A thousand “Hu-zas” to gracious Zeus for our old friend “apparently.”)
There was this other ole dude in the City, who said he thought “Strident” was the name of a real annoying chewing gum.
There seems to yet linger in the City the belief that it IS one’s duty to suffer over, and through, the inevitable.
What could be truly “impossible” to at least attempt for the totally brave, or the infinitely stupid? (Remember now, to tell me if these are getting too difficult, or easy.)
