Quote: idea

If you want to cath an idea
you need a net.
If you want the idea to work
you need a network

Elle “The Body” Macpherson has a problem, a rather big one I guess. According to the Daily Mail, Elle calls herself a “hopeless flirt”.

“I just don’t get men hitting on me.”
“I’m a hopeless flirt. I’ll go up to a guy and say, ‘I think you are so beautiful,’ but it just doesn’t work.”

Born in Australia in 1964, Elle Macpherson still looks great at her age of 43. Working as a (runway) model for years, she now has 2 sons but … no husband.

Tracy’s Truth

Makes no difference if you’re early,
no difference if you’re late.
When you’re out of time,
the flowers have been laid.
You’re six feet underground,
with cold feet

(Tracy Chapman in ‘Cold Feet’)

Together

Any place is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we’ll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

Politieke logica

Als je een tijdbom in het vriesvak steekt, is die niet verdwenen: op een bepaald moment ontploft je frigo.

All the world’s a stage

All the world’s a stage
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,

From William Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” (Act II, Scene 7)

Af en toe ‘n beetje

Sterven doe je niet ineens,
maar af en toe ‘n beetje,
en alle beetjes die je sterft,
‘t is vreemd maar die vergeet je.
Het is je dikwijls zelf ontgaan,
je zegt, ik ben wat moe,
maar op een keer,
dan ben je,
aan je laatste beetje toe.

Toon Hermans

… ik mis je pa!
