A man is recognized and remembered either for the physical things he does (e.g., Thomas Edison, Alexander the Great) or for his ‘personality’. To wit: Winston Churchill. He is arguably the most important figure of WWII era, yet not so much for what he did as for his personality.

A man’s personality consists mostly of his words telling how he feels about things, usually intangible things. Here is additional evidence of the supreme importance of words in the lives of men. Men don’t know how they feel about abstract things until they hear the words in their brain pronounce on them! (whilst instantly agreeing with same). (33:51) #3223

The Unhooved Few’s Private Mode Of Inner Transport

One day in conversation a man suddenly blurted out
that if something wasn’t in Google he didn’t believe it existed –
which he instantly took to be as silly as did those who heard it;
but the more he pondered it, the less silly it became.
Question: Do you realize why?
One man’s rule is: “If you don’t understand a particular thing
that means there’s nothing about it to be understood.
And,” he adds, “the world would be lots better off if everybody realized that.”
(Who’s up to nay-saying that one!?)

Answering questions about yourself makes you an even bigger liar than
you already are and more confused than ever about yourself.

Animals can only live the life appropriately for them while humans not only do that,
they can also talk about it;
animals are so jealous they can hardly stand it. (Damn! are they mad!)

One man says that you should not shop at places which constantly advertise a sale
since they therefore have no regular prices
(but his partner says you should ignore his comment).

“What’s more pathetic than a would be thinker not up to the task and unawares?”
“A raccoon whose favorite team hasn’t won a pennant in years?”

There is one guy with a phone who forever dreams that the next call will be
the big-one;
and there is another guy who has no phone and just dreams of receiving any call;
and then there is the phone company itself – which NEVER dreams.
(“Gentlemen: Choose your side.”)

To most people interested (or even ostensibly involved) in waking-up,
it is something abstract,
while to the man-who-knows, it is as tangible and immediate as tightening a bolt.

Sad, rich people believe poverty produces joy;
the certain man knows that it does.

One man has one inviolate, self-imposed policy: “At least once a day!
(Unless I forget to).”

If you don’t realize the humor – you unwittingly drown in it.

As long as you’re thinking and talking about waking-up
you won’t be bothered with actually trying to do it.

A voice from someplace said:
“There are three ways to worry about something:
worry about it before it happens;
worry about it after it happens,
and worry about it like a man-who-knows.”

If you add a laugh to your comment, the comment was meaningless
(and certainly not humorous).

Ordinary men have other men to inspire them;
the certain man has the awareness of another consciousness.

“Dig it,” said one voice, “there’re two eyes and one peep hole.”

Inner Sci-Fi.
As men age they helplessly trade their space vehicles for time machines.

Huffed one man’s consciousness: “No one calls ME a comedian and gets away with it!”

The seriousness you smell on cows’ breath is fear.

Legend tells of one man who turned on the past with a vengeance.

Noted a father to a son going off to college:
“If a slick paper publication like Vanity Fair is left lying on the stairs it is much easier
to step thereon, slip and fall than it is on a rough pulp paper one like The Nation –
and such my boy should be the deciding factor in your reading choices.”
(In the city they look after their own.)

The worst and best things that can happen to you are about what you’d expect,
(unless you move to a new place).

A chap offers his observation: “Have you noticed that the gods of other planets
all smell and talk funny?”

As his eyes gradually opened and he became more acquainted with
his other manifestation of consciousness, one man mused:
“Everything’s connected – it’s all a blur:
this is true for ordinary men, and in a different manner, also for one trying to wake-up.”

Headline read: “Looking Good Is Only Half The Story,” and the reader thought: “Okay – but which half?”

If there are not things you can bring to your consciousness
which always make you privately chuckle,
you’ve still got a way to go before Istanbul.
