"Life is tragic for those who have plenty to live on and nothing to live for."

- Unknown


I don't know who this Unknown guy is, but he ought to write a book or something. He's always got such clever, insightful things to say!

Better yet, maybe I'll just change my name to "Unknown" so I can take credit for all of his shit. And then I'll change my name back to Terry Mertens! YES! It's brilliant! Prince changed his name a half dozen fucking times - once to a fucking Rorschach blob! If he can do it, so can I. From now on my name is Unknown and I am the greatest unsung genius of our time. But you already knew that. Here are some other pearls of wisdom I've got for you.

"A wise man can see more from the bottom of a well than a fool can from a mountain top."

"Artificial Intelligence is no match for natural stupidity."

"True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable."

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and sings it back to you when you have forgotten how it goes."

"The only true wisdom consists in knowing that you know nothing."

"It isn't the mountains ahead that wear you out, it's the grain of sand in your shoe."

"Don't be afraid to take one large step because you can't cross a chasm in two small leaps."

"If a man shits in the woods and there's no one around to hear it fall, did he really shit at all?"

(That last one keeps me up at night)

Yeah, one day you'll think back upon your life and be glad you knew me. Maybe not today. But one day.
