The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

The Other Reality

Gulf of California. México

The Wit and Wisdom of George Bernard Shaw

“You see things; and you say, 'Why?'
But I dream things that never were; and I say, 'Why not?'”

“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”

“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.”

“You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul”

“We should all be obliged to appear before a board every five years and justify our existence...on pain of liquidation.”

“We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”

“The things most people want to know about are usually none of their business.”

“Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get”

“The minority is sometimes right; the majority always wrong.”

“The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.”

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.”

“The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact than a drunken man is happier than a sober one”

“A gentleman is one who puts more into the world than he takes out.”

“The possibilities are numerous once we decide to act and not react.”

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”

“Two percent of the people think; three percent of the people think they think; and ninety-five percent of the people would rather die than think.”

“Human beings are the only animals of which I am thoroughly and cravenly afraid.”
