quote by Rick Ross

If I had been literate, I wouldn't have sold drugs. I just wanted a job. I would have worked at McDonald's. And I would have put the same effort into the fries and mopping the floor that I would have put into drugs. I'm the kind of person that always wants to do a job the best I can. I don't believe in half-doing jobs.

— Rick Ross

The white youth of today have begun to react to the fact that the American Way of Life is a fossil of history. What do they care if their old baldheaded and crew-cut elders don't dig their caveman mops?

Yet Byron never made tea as you do, who fill the pot so that when you put the lid on the tea spills over. There is a brown pool on the table--it is running among your books and papers.

I think that the revolution in music is over, and what's left is a mop-up action. It's a matter of the news getting out to everybody else.

Everything is traditionally slow - much faster than it ever has been on earth but still far, far too slow.

Determined secularists view these as residual inconsistencies that they have not yet go around to extirpating and that may not be worth bothering about...
