Prosperity is living easily and happily in the real world, whether you have money or not.
Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
~P. J. O’Rourke. Patrick Jake “P. J.” O’Rourke (born November 14, 1947) is an American political satirist, journalist, writer, and author.
“How uncertain things are,” said Happy Face
To Monica, who measured every wall
And put each picture in a matching place.
“This artist answered a long-deep-high call,”
She said, giclées in hand, “as though a race
To Heaven was his aim, because to fall
Would hurt the Lord, so he pursued the chase
For Beauty, more than what the shadowed walls
In Malls can offer in their Christmas ads:
Beauty from Nature and high-octane brains.”
“The leaves are falling –summer’s almost gone.
I will invest in one who’s rising fast–
In twenty years I’ll reap enormous gain.
You should ally yourself with kings, not pawns.”
