Go Do Something

You don't have to go fast, you just have to go.

(Via The Body Department.)

Do something you’ve been putting off, whether it’s jogging around the block, doing a few sets with those nearly-forgotten weights under your bed, dancing in the rain, singing in the shower, acting in a play, or producing your own puppet show. Paint a portrait, travel to a foreign land—or merely down the street to the local park. Learn to play the banjo. Invent a new sandwich called the “Jesse Eisenburger.” Write a story, a novel, a letter to your mom. Take up Yoga. Push the living room furniture aside and build a miniature metropolis out of Legos and Lincoln Logs. Invent a new board game with your kids. Host your very own Catch Phrase Championships with friends. Live, love—

go.

Grasshopper and Grandmaster

Master: Sit.

Grasshopper: Where?

Master: There.

Grasshopper: I don’t see a chair.

Master: Chair is there if you believe it is there.

Grasshopper sits, falls through thin air.

Master (chuckling): You did not believe chair was there.

Rock beats scissors, of course

Ernie: As humans, we laud our own superiority as the dominant species on the planet, we point out how civilized we are, how much more advanced we are than the animals and insects. But in matters of war we revert to the basic level of bacteria. Stronger defeats weaker, style over substance, beauty before wisdom. Why is that?

Theo: Simple. Rock beats scissors.

Ernie (scowling): Have you no philosophical depth at all??
