  10. A blossoming tree becomes stripped and bare in autumn. Beauty changes into ugliness, youth into old age, and fault into virtue. Things do not remain the same and nothing really exsists. Thus, appearences and emptiness exsist simultaneously.

  12. Some good Bill Hicks quotes...
    May he rest in peace...He influenced the lives of those who don't take kindly to popular interest.

    "I hate patriotism - can't f**king stand it. It makes me sick. It's a round world last time I checked."

    "Evolution didn't end with us growing thumbs."

    "Childbirth is no more a miracle then eating food and a turd coming out of your ass."

    "I can speak for every guy in this room here tonight. Guys, if you could blow yourselves, ladies, you'd be in this room alone right now...Watching an empty stage."

    "It's just a ride and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money, a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one."

    "I've learned a lot about women. I think I've learned exactly how the fall of man occurred in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden, and Adam said one day, “Wow, Eve, here we are, at one with nature, at one with God, we'll never age, we'll never die, and all our dreams come true the instant that we have them.” And Eve said, “Yeah...it's just not enough, is it?”"
