Musings - Don't Panic!

Prayer -

'Lord, lord, lord, protect me from knowing what I don't need to know.
Protect me from even knowing that there are things to know that I don't know.
Protect me from knowing that I decided not to know about the things that I decided not to know about.

"There's another prayer that goes with it that's very important, so you'd better jot this down, too."

'Lord, lord, lord. Protect me from the consequences of the above prayer. Amen...'

And that's it. Most of the trouble people get into in life comes from missing out that last part.'

Mohican, you're one hoopy frood who always knows where his towel is.

The wisdom I've heard is: don't panic. But if you are going to panic, be first.

My favorite book. I am not surprised that most of us share wavelenghts.

"Curiously the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias, as it fell, was, 'Oh no, not again.' Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly *why* the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now."
