A Bomb, Wealth of Thought

I always have a quotation for everything – it saves original thinking.

Dorothy L. Sayers
We live in an age where anonymity is growing in magnitude like a bomb going off.
Jock Sturges
American photographer

I don’t know how I feel
about the jet setting
All-access pass
Discussing bombs
And anonymity

(I thought Americans weren’t allowed to say bomb?)
The essence of war is violence. Moderation in war is imbecility.
John A. Fisher
Royal Navy admiral of the fleet

Dear Admiral Fisher
Brevity is your friend
For example:
War is violence.
War is imbecility.

P.S. love a Navy man named Fisher.
Mathematics is man's own handiwork, subject only to the limitations imposed by the laws of thought.
Edward Kasner
American mathematician

Hay(na)Ku: no thought = no math

we have
Β  ourselves to blame

Some men are alive simply because it is against the law to kill them.
E. W. Howe
American novelist and editor

I have this thought at least once a day
And while I petition to change the laws
I know they’re here to stay

Wealth is not his that has it, but his that enjoys it.
Franklin, Benjamin

Who has wealth but doesn’t enjoy it?
I honestly can’t figure it out.

  1. You are on a roll today. I hope you get that law changed for all of us. Rich people always enjoy their wealth, but some of them pretend not to so the rest of us won’t kill them.

    1. No. WordPress isn’t working well, won’t open pages, crashes regularly, and I feel I’ve done everything I wanted to with this blog. More bored than burnout.


  3. Love your take on war and of course the question of wealth. Those with wealth who don’t enjoy it are poor. Those poor who enjoy what life offers are rich… a conundrum.
