I have these notebooks and loose pages of typed stuff that I have grabbed willy nilly from here and there over the past fifty years. A lot of times let me be truthful...most times I neglected to write down the source or author...never went to college me so never learned the importance of footnotes and attributes. Going through my files to shred as much as I can bear to part with and I keep coming across stuff like the following that I want to keep and throw away at the same time. So....before I shred the paper here are a few of the keepers:

Lonely people tend to be lonely because they decline to bear the psychic costs of being around other humans. They are allergic to people. People affect them too strongly. They fear and loath the strain of the special self-consciousness which afflicts them only when other real human beings are around staring, their human sense-antennae abristle. They fear how they might appear, come across, to watchers. They choose to sit out the game of appearance poker.

or this one

Television is a godsend for the human subspecies that loves to watch people but hates to be watched itself. A psychic ball-check valve.

Death by a thousand cuts is what teasing is.

The light at the end of the tunnel is a paramedic with a flashlight.

Those of us not quite at home in the world, don't quite have permanent addresses either.

You have to have an anchoring point someplace. You can't always be free floating in your head.

There is no problem so big and complicated that it can't be run away from.

From a book about women power. In face of male presumption such as a you walk down the street, chant loudly and repeatedly.
Wither and fall off
Wither and fall off
Wither and fall off

Being faithful means not costing the people you love more than they can afford to pay.

Last but not least...election time is upon us here and in the USA and as I listen to the issues and hear the horror stories from abroad and the attempts to change the laws here at home to suit newcomers to the detriment of existing populations and listen to politicians spouting incredibly stupid things... I think this applies:

If we could learn to look instead of gawking,
We'd see the horror in the heart of farce,
If only we could act instead of talking,
We wouldn't always end up on our arse.
This was the thing that nearly had us mastered;
Don't yet rejoice in his defeat, you men!
Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard,
The bitch that bore him is in heat again.

I might do this again as I keep coming across bits and pieces and lines.
