SITTING THERE

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate sitting doing nothing much. Lois said of Bill Wilson something to the effect that – Bill never ran when he could walk. Never walked when he could sit and never sat when he could lie.

Did some of his best work when he was lying down so he did or sitting at a wee table. So Mebbe we will SIT awhile. There’s a lot in SITTING.

Izzy and John Sebastian say – I’M JUST SITTIN’ HERE LOVIN’ YOU.

Some SITTIN’ is juST SITTIN’.

CHECK THE ZEN FROG SITE AGAIN FOR WONDERFUL SAYINGS.

But I say unto you,
Take this staff just as a staff;
Movement is movement;
Sitting is sitting,
but don’t wobble
under any circumstances!
My staff has turned into a dragon
and swallowed up the whole world.
Where are the poor mountains and rivers and great earth now?

– Yun-men Wen-yen, (Ummon), 864-949

Going to work for a large company is like getting on a train. Are you going sixty miles an hour or is the train going sixty miles an hour and you’re just sitting still?
Henry George

Even on the highest throne in the world, we are still sitting on our ass.
Michel de Montaigne

I was thrown out of university for cheating on the metaphysics exam; I looked into the soul of the boy sitting next to me.

Just sitting quiety, doing nothing,
Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.
– Zenrin poem

I’d rather be riding my motorcycle thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my motorcycle.

Rudyard Kipling:

Our England is a garden, and such gardens are not made
By singing: — “Oh, how beautiful!” and sitting in the shade.

Each man is good in His sight. It is not necessary for eagles to be crows.”~Hunkesni (Sitting Bull), Hunkpapa Sioux
