"No Secret Service agent was in view on the video when Zaidi threw the first shoe at Bush’s head from about 20 feet away and shouted in Arabic: "This is a goodbye kiss, you dog."

“You need not do anything.
Remain sitting at your table and listen.
You need not even listen, just wait.
You need not even wait,
just learn to be quiet, still and solitary.

It has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
(I had to put this on my facebook quotes. I love it)”—Franz Kafka (via kaikaikai)

At age 75, success is…having friends.
At age 90, success is…not peeing in your pants.”
