All My Rhymes Are Lame

Don’t disrespect your teacher,
and don’t believe the hype.
You will have a jelly brain,
if you fall for all of them.

Stay in school and don’t drop out,
Unless you want to end up
With peanut butter on your mind.

Spanish Translation

No desprecie al maestro,
y no crea en el bombo.
Tendrá un cerebro de jalea,
si cree en todos ellos.

Permanezca en la escuela
y no deje de asistir,
a menos que desee terminar
con mantequilla de cacahuete en su mente.

“All human activity is prompted by desire. There is a wholly fallacious theory advanced by some earnest moralists to the effect that it is possible to resist desire in the interests of duty and moral principle. I say this is fallacious, not because no man ever acts from a sense of duty, but because duty has no hold on him unless he desires to be dutiful. If you wish to know what men will do, you must know not only, or principally, their material circumstances, but rather the whole system of their desires with their relative strengths.” Excerpt from The Four Desires Driving All Human Behavior

“Ignorance breeds fear. We fear those things we don’t understand. If we don’t put a lid on that fear and keep that fear in check, that fear in turn will breed hatred because we hate those things that frighten us. “If we don’t keep that hatred in check, that hatred in turn will breed destruction.” By: Daryl Davis

“Many painters are afraid of the blank canvas, but the blank canvas IS AFRAID of the truly passionate painter who dares—and who has once broken the spell of ‘you can’t’.
Life itself likewise always turns towards one an infinitely meaningless, discouraging, dispiriting blank side on which there is nothing, any more than on a blank canvas.
But however meaningless and vain, however dead life appears, the man of faith, of energy, of warmth, and who knows something, doesn’t let himself be fobbed off like that. He steps in and does something, and hangs on to that, in short, breaks, ‘violates’.” Excerpt from Vincent van Gogh on Fear, Taking Risks, and How Making Inspired Mistakes Moves Us Forward
