This is not a quote but just a thought about A&E -- A&E stands for Accident & Emergency but also for Adam & Eve -- is there a difference?

By 1900, the bulbs were lasting a very long time. Today, We have a number of them from that era that still give light. The oldest one was installed in 1901, and is presently at the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department in California. A few others, younger by a few years to a few decades, still burn as well, and yet others lasted 100 years or more before burning out.

What this demonstrates is that We can produce bulbs that last a lifetime, and even for generations.

So why arent We?

So true. Portia Nelson's poem "Autobiography in Five Short Chapters" springs to mind.

Yes! Exactly. I've read that before, and it captures the essence of a cyclic pattern perfectly.

Thanks for sharing John Muir. He wrote one of my dearest quotes youve just reminded me of. It kind of keeps me Pagan-ing, and is a sentiment I share entirely:

I don't like either the word [hike] or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains - not 'hike!' Do you know the origin of that word saunter? It's a beautiful word. Away back in the middle ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going they would reply, 'A la sainte terre', 'To the Holy Land.' And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not 'hike' through them.

-John Muir


Ooh, that's a great quote...completely agreed. I haven't sauntered enough lately myself, hope to remedy that soon. Life keeps making me act like an adult for extended periods now lol. Which reminds me of another of his great quotes:

I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.

Life is ours to be spent, not to be saved

The only reason for living is being fully alive;
and you cant be fully alive if you
are crushed by secret fear,
and bullied with the threat:
Get money, or eat dirt!
(D. H. Lawrence)
