    ''Have you met any famous tourist today ?'' ( Long time no see British friend and his regular humorous greeting ).

    We are all visitors on this planet ( H.H.Dalailama )

    We are all pilgrims ...

    One day , none of this we consider important will be in place .. this house, this city . Even this country .. it's existence will be pulverised by time . Heroes and villains we know now will be long forgotten . None of the technology as we know it will exist ..
    not even the internet .
    Yet ... the world will be roughly the same .. and we will be walking in the dust of our ancestors .
    There will be memories of this civilisation, long gone . Languages that do not exist yet . Everything will be brand new , just the same way it appears to your eyes right now ,
    and that is because in every glimpse of a moment your eyes too are born anew .

    In our eyes the world is changing . But otherwise , maybe it's always been the same ..

    “What is a country? A country is a piece of land surrounded on all sides by boundaries, usually unnatural. Englishmen are dying for England, Americans are dying for America, Germans are dying for Germany, Russians are dying for Russia. There are now fifty or sixty countries fighting in this war. Surely so many countries can't all be worth dying for.”
    ― Joseph Heller, Catch-22


    “Why are they going to disappear him?'
    I don't know.'
    It doesn't make sense. It isn't even good grammar.”
    ― Joseph Heller, Catch-22


    “Man was matter, that was Snowden's secret. Drop him out a window, and he'll fall. Set fire to him and he'll burn. Bury him and he'll rot, like other kinds of garbage. The spirit gone, man is garbage. That was Snowden's secret. Ripeness was all.”
    ― Joseph Heller, Catch-22


    “You have deep-seated survival anxieties. And you don't like bigots, bullies, snobs or hypocrites. Subconsciously there are many people you hate."

    "Consciously, sir, consciously," Yossarian corrected in an effort to help. "I hate them consciously.”
    ― Joseph Heller, Catch-22

    “From now on I'm thinking only of me."

    Major Danby replied indulgently with a superior smile: "But, Yossarian, suppose everyone felt that way."

    "Then," said Yossarian, "I'd certainly be a damned fool to feel any other way, wouldn't I?”
    ― Joseph Heller, Catch-22

    “The suggestion that petroleum might have arisen from some
    transformation of squashed fish or biological detritus is surely the
    silliest notion to have been entertained by substantial numbers of
    persons over an extended period of time.” — Sir Fred Hoyle, 1982

    “Actually it cannot be too strongly emphasized that petroleum does
    not present the composition picture expected from modified biogenic
    products, and all the arguments from the constituents of ancient oils
    fit equally well, or better, with the conception of a primordial
    hydrocarbon mixture to which bio-products have been added.” — Sir
    Robert Robinson (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1947)

    “The Hydrogen-Carbon system does not evolve spontaneously at
    pressures less than 30 Kbar, even in the most favorable
    environmental conditions. The HC system evolves hydrocarbons
    under pressures found in Earth's mantle at temperatures consistent
    with that environment” — J. F. Kenney and collaborators, 2002

    “Statistical thermodynamic analysis has established clearly that
    hydrocarbon molecules which comprise petroleum require very high
    pressures for their spontaneous formation, comparable to the
    pressures required for the same of diamond. In that sense,
    hydrocarbon molecules are the high-pressure polymorphs of the
    reduced carbon system as is diamond of elemental carbon. Any
    notion which might suggest that hydrocarbon molecules
    spontaneously evolve in the regimes of temperature and pressure
    characterized by the near-surface of the Earth, which are the regimes
    of methane creation and hydrocarbon destruction, does not even
    deserve consideration.” — Emmanuil B. Chekaliuk, 1968

    Plato:
    Good people do not need laws and bad people break them anyway.

    The Tao:
    Every person within themselves possesses the four principles of benevolence, justice, propriety, and wisdom, and each person has only to obey the law within themselves in order to be perfect.

    I Ching:
    The tao of the universe is indeed kindness and wisdom; but essentially tao is also beyond kindness and wisdom.
