OK, dudes and dudettes, here is my contribution of dude wisdom...

If you cannot find dudeism right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?


And.................


We have two eyes to see two sides of things, but there must be a third eye which will see everything at the same time and yet not see anything. That is to understand Dudeism.


OK, you know its been fucking stolen. But there is no new wisdom under the sun, just new ways to say it. That is, ah, just like, my opinion, man.

Douglas Adams is the shit and the Hitchhiker's Guide series is one of my all-time favorites.
Heres some more quotes:

He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which.
   
He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Towel Day, A tribute to Douglas Adams.....................

The dude was a dude who really knew where his towel was. And his towel really tied the room together.
Title: Re: The Tao of the Dude Book
Post by: Dude1967 on August 05, 2008, 09:58:46 AM


To quote from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have. Partly it has great practical
value - you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or to avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very, very ravenous); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value. For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost". What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place. Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings, but they have always a nostalgia for a home they know not. They are strangers at their birthplace, and the leafy lanes they have known from childhood or the populous streets in which they have played, remain but a place of passage. They may spend their whole lives aliens among their kindred and remain aloof among the only scenes they have ever knows. Perhaps it is this sense of strangeness that sends men far and wide in the search for something permanent, to which they may attach themselves. Perhaps some deep-rooted atavism urges the wanderer back to lands which his ancestors left in the dim beginnings of history. Sometimes a man hits upon a place to which he mysteriously feels that he belongs. Here is the home he sought, and he will settle amid scenes that he has never seen before, among men he has never known, as though they were familiar to him from his birth. Here at last he finds rest.
W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965)

    * For most gulls, it is not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight.

    * Most gulls don?t bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight ? how to get from shore to food and back again.

    * We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill.

    * Jonathan Seagull discovered that boredom and fear and anger are the reasons that a gull?s life is so short, and with these gone from his thoughts, he lived a long fine life indeed.

    * The gull sees farthest who flies highest.

    * Don?t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding.

    * If our friendship depends on things like space and time, then when we finally overcome space and time, we've destroyed our own brotherhood! But overcome space, and all we have left is Here. Overcome time, and all we have left is Now. And in the middle of Here and Now, don't you think that we might see each other once or twice?

    * The gulls who scorn perfection for the sake of travel go nowhere, slowly. Those who put aside travel for the sake of perfection go anywhere, instantly.
