2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate leaving Brisbane and the changes that any Leaving brings.
Tomorrow they leave Brisbane and today He leaves AustLit. LEAVING.

Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art
of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the
elimination of non-essentials.

allesmoegliche049.gifLeaving the weeds, entering the weeds;
Who knows how to seek them out?
White clouds, layer upon layer;
Red sun, clear and bright.
Looking to the left, there are no flaws;
Looking to the right, already old.
Have you not seen the man of Cold Mountain?
He traveled so swiftly;
Ten years he couldn’t return,
And forgot the road by which he came.

This one I don’t think quite says what George said before he killed himself.

” Good-bye. I am leaving because I am bored.” George Sanders

but I shall find the exact words sometime.

Au Revoir, Adios, Arrive Dercii, Auf Wiedersehen
Cherio, goodbye, ta-ra wack
If you really, really must leave
Please return, reappear, resurface, come back

Happiness is something that comes into our lives through a door we don’t remember leaving open.


Above all, a horse should never be chastised out of foul mood or anger, but always with complete dispassion.
~Francois Robichon de la Gueriniere

Neither should, for the same reason, the lessons be for too long a period; they fatigue and bore a horse,
and it should be returned to the stable with the same good spirits it had upon leaving it.
~Francois Robichon de la Gueriniere


You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.  What you’ll discover will be wonderful.  What you’ll discover is yourself.  ~Alan Alda
