as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Reinhold Niebuhr/Quotes

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Man's capacity for justice makes democracy possible, but man's inclination to injustice makes democracy necessary.
Forgiveness is the final form of love.

Reinhold Niebuhr

"If you don't go into the woods, nothing will ever happen, never your life will begin. Go to the woods, go. » Clarissa Pinkola Estés, women who run with wolves-stories and myths of the archetype of the Wild Woman, translated by Marie-France Girod, Grasset, 1996

"When an exceptional being aspires to give shape to its existence, it does not wait for disappointments to feel disappointed, the contingencies of human life are enough to disqualify it in the light of its high internal demands."

- Seneca, Letters

"he who does not know that he is doing wrong does not wish to be set right. Before you can reform yourself, you must realize your error. Some people glory in their faults. Do you suppose they have any thought for the remedy? Surely not, since they count their bad habits as virtues! Bring an accusation against yourself, as stringently as you can. Then conduct the investigation. Take the role of the accuser first, then the judge, and let that of the advocate come last. Offend yourself sometimes!"

- Seneca, Letters 28.10

Beat It On Down The Line


Beat It On Down The Line

Lyrics: Jesse Fuller
Music: Jesse Fuller
Grateful Dead - Beat on down the line 1972

[Verse 1]
Well this job I've got is just a little too hard
Running out of money, lord, I need more pay
Gonna wake up in the morning lord, gonna pack my bags
I'm gonna beat it on down the line

[Chorus 1]
I'm going down the line, going down the line
Going down the line, going down the line
Going down the line, going down the line
Beat it on down the line

[Verse 2]
Yes I'll be waiting at the station lord, when that train pulls on by
I'm going back where I belong
I'm going back to that same old used-to-be
Down in joe brown's coal mine

[Chorus 2]
Coal mine, coal mine, coal mine, coal mine [x3]
Down in joe brown's coal mine

[Verse 3]
Yeah, I'm going back to that shack way across that railroad track
Uh huh, that's where I think I belong
And that's where I'm gonna make my happy home

Happy home, happy home, happy home, happy home [x3]
That's where I'm gonna make my happy home
