Sweets and acids quotations
Maybe my normal being is a little Karelian and a little Danish. Both cultures are speaking fast and they have also an easy-going temperament. I have met some Danes barking but when you look in the eyes they are laughing. Quite confusing is it.
A smile enlarge the mouth
And maybe you live longerPoetry |sitemap| home |
In my childhood at Zealand Denmark I learnt fast that a rapid answer is a good thing and it can save you much trouble. But to give an answer at once usually requires that it be in store in your brain. You need not have precisely the right words but if you have many your brain can combine them to something suitable. That means you have to train in your spare time. Just look how a cat train when it feel for it. Then it is there when you need it.
The stuffed cabbage roll does the split
That is a very useful saying when you have nothing to say. The opponent become confused and you get time to find a better answer. It is also useful for yourself if your thinking is in a spin and come into a closed loop. Then it is good to push it out with something unusual.
My verbal humour is mostly coming in the fly and it lives only for a day. People and happenings in the day inspire it. Still, through the years some have been spared and written down for reuse. Here I translate some sayings that fit an international public and are not too near our local habits and politics.
It may seem as a habit, but like cats the training gives skill. People are always in a hurry and then you have to learn how to formulate yourself shortly. I must confess that some of it is reuse of old sayings in a new robe.
If you think I am rude your are right. Life has not always been kind to me. Up to relativity you should use the weapons that are custom in the world you describe. That is the way it is. It all starts here
Within Internet the distance between people is zero
Within the Human Rights you may be as foolish as you wish
As the politician say,
It is impossible to make a decision
If you do not catch the clue in the question
Oh, age is easy to bear
But the weight is hard to bear
See the light in life
Light a candle
"Still something from above"
Him said when got a message from a gull
Is it the good eye?
Or the bad eye looking at us from the space?
Life is like a battery
With glad people you recharge
With sourpuss you discharge
The oxen is slow
But the Earth is patient
That saying put things up and down
Absurd, said the Fox
Seeing the Cock on the other side of the river
With my small hands
I have always difficulties in gripping it
The seals love classical music
Still none is playing for them
Tell about yourself
And people are suddenly in the hurry
Water is not H2O any more
At a pinch you can jump on a wooden leg
A wooden leg is better than three legs
It is not easy to be the big brother either
No danger in radioactivity
As long as you have your hair left
If you poke your nose in water
You get nose drop
Do you forget to laugh?
Or do you laugh to forget
Never mind, in hundred years time this is forgotten
Do you swear?
Yes, I am driving out the spirits
I am Homo Sapiens with reason and sense
Hurrah, Hurrah, Hurray
How strong I am
I am the best
Holly is the silly
That does not know what silliness is
Deep, deep in there in the socialist
Surprise we find a capitalist
Our grandchildren surely manage the environment
... I am a size small person, bald and with pot-belly and my last hair is nearly fluffy. It lies near to compare myself with the Sumerian archetype ... yeah, the type is a statue on Malta about 5000 years ago too ... if they not were gods? ... then I would be godlike?
Genetic scientists tell us that we to 98% are gorilla-like. Then my likeness with Sumerians must be near 100% ... and if we compare with the orang-outang the likeness might be more than 98%. Another likeness is that I rather live apart from the crowd. A sympathetic feature in orang-outang, I think.
It is good to pretend a friend
As long as he does not sit on you
We are all carrying the pairhood within
Heritage from woman and man
The double is our natural guise
Life is a struggle to unite them
It is so easy
That it become complicated
They say it is easy to carry wisdom
Then they have not carried many big books from the library
My friend Kjell took this picture on holidays in Denmark. It was my first school in the big house. Our teacher "Porcupine" lived in the smaller building. On the courtyard there was a hall for gymnastic and common use. Now it is all a home for the elder.
We shared the day in "the little school" between 7 and 10 years age and the "the big school" the last four years. On the back wall was our library. I carried much of it a mile to my home outside the village.
Subtlety is something for the Faculty of Sophism
I am fooling around as an object
for the ethnological science
As Wittgenstein said
If you do not know what you say
It is better to keep your mouth shut
They tell again that it is crisis in Sweden
They tell we have to handle
But where is the handle we should use?
Warning! you bald-head!
There is nitrogen in the air
You may get green mossy hair in no time
I shake often my head
They say that the often shaken stone
Carry no moss.
If I am going to be hanged
I would prefer to check that the rope is strong enough
As the neo-liberalist said
Shareholders do not work
So they should not pay taxes
There were many houses of this kind in my childhood. This is not the smallest and farms were made like this from the 17th century to our century. There is only about 60 miles to Copenhagen and now many old houses are owned by city-dwellers living there maybe the entire year. The shores are filled with small "summer houses" and the idyllic countryside is only a memory
Here lived the Wayman, his son Keld of my age and a bunch of sisters and brothers. The Wayman had a bad habit to beat Keld up every Friday and the wife got a hit or two too.
Keld told me once that he had got a chronic headache. During the years he has been many times in prison and he never got his life in order. He could not concentrate on life and I think he took revenge on the community that did not help him out in time.
As Hilary Clinton said
It takes a community to foster a child
It is easy to be splendid
As long as it cost nothing
An oil-drowned bird swam to a boat
And asked for a wash
Then it was the liberalist
That grumbled and complained
In the end he became a whiner
Why do we find so many whiners among those owning much?
The greedy get a bad end.
A fresh living nature
Is in balance between
Too much and too little
It is easy for the bald-head
To keep the head cold and stay cool
Some say that birds are born with the skill to build a nest
How did the first bird know how to build a nest?
Yeah man, jazz is the only real stuff ... crazy man ... crazy
The cautious scream Hello
Before the jump over the brook
Otherwise it can be too late
The zebra got its fur to be invisible
I think there are many zebras in the politics
Not every tree could be used for making fiddles
Nowadays it is almost impossible to find fiddle-wood
The Spirits of the Wood swear like Hell
To keep pace and be in phase with mankind
We have our in the air
Where are yours?
As Socrates said
The politics of Athens is like a restive ass
You must always drive it
They are much alike
Journalists and philosophers have to make the question
Before it have raised
Some men are working hard for fourteen hours
To get others to work in eighth hours
The wallet pays for the silly head
... and the legs then?
They say the waste is a problem
Or is it mankind?
At home I have a gallows for gallows humour
It is necessary to fly without wings
Dig your self down
Soon you get the hot time
Acid air have no smell no taste
You see when the leafs turn yellow
About crocodiles yes, it is better to have a bicycle at hand and hope for a downhill when you meet one. They can run with a speed of 25 miles per hour. You are in serious trouble if you meet a crocodile on a bicycle!

We have the satellites watching us

When they decide to use agreements instead of weapons
It is not easy to se the sun in small things
Do you see the sun in the dung-ball a dung-beetle rolls?
Much strength is needed to be soft
I dreamt that Time was running in front of me
"You are not hanging on old man
Hang on you must ..."
In cities they write poems about people
... not about butterflies, smell of blooming fields,
breeze from the sea ... damn mosquitoes
When you jump over the brook
You scare of the water-sprite then
The threat against environment is =
Our used energy times our activity squared
The same formula as Einstein wrote
Humankind owns the fantasy
Think how many problems there are
If you think
It is difficult to see the small in the big
If you are too near you think it is a mountain
If you are too far you have forgot the spectacles
I raise my hat
Every time I see a satellite
Greeting Sam and Tawaritz to keep them awake
On Samoa they have no words for "mine and dine"

Before I get the knowledge

Though I do not know the taste

Following others at heel
We can learn from Socrates
With a vixen as wife you become philosopher
How much is the man worth as an unused resource?
As the Wordsplitter said
Politic is to know and do it
The politicians reorganise and rationalise decade after decade
And it is after their own doings
It is good to see they know their faults
It is no renewal to overtake the arguments from the opponents
Sooner it shows lack of knowledge and imagination
Everything flows ... nothing vanish
But takes a jump to another stage now and then
That is the thermodynamic
In bookkeeping everything is depending on everything
That is why life and bookkeeping is so difficult
A millionaire told that to work fourteen hours a day is fun
Good to know that even a millionaire have some fun
Fat flesh and big words do not fasten in the trout
But it keeps the pants up
The number of interpreting suggestions
Increase with lack of real sources
That is why our ancestors are primitive and magic
Th peace movement is not popular among weapon dealers
The green movement is not popular among polluters
Does destroyers have the right answer to everything?
What is intelligence?
The will to let the Future Child survive?
Fat flesh and grand airs we shall envy people
We shall not have that fun
"Flow with ease" said Wordsplitter
It is so deep so deep on Television
Play the old games ... be a cop ... be a doctor ... be a fireman ...
Be a salesman ... be a teacher ... play robbers and cops
Oh I remember it all from my childhood
And now again
Politicians are the real magicians
They cut down to get growth
The only guaranty for the real free man
Is the healthy wealthy community
Only a community can keep all kind of robbers in chess
Sorry, the Government does not allow me to be sick
It is something with the balance in the Finance
It is remarkable that superpowers and tyrants easily call all opposition terrorists. Why cannot the great powers afford to be generous. Why do they speak about equality and democracy?
I think enterprise should pay taxes after employment. That means the less employment the more taxes. Then the market = the employers could afford to demand for products and keep the machines running. It would also decrease the expenditure for the Government too.
Some neo-liberalist told us that unemployment is a disease. The jobless causes this sickness by him self. As long as the analysis of the market is on that level I think the unemployment would be unsolved. From where do they get that intelligence? At the School of Business and Administration I suppose?
Who pay when someone is made jobless?
When I hear that rubbish reasoning i think " let us have a good war again, so that we can drink warm blood from the victims"
... yes. At the communion I learned that we were drinking blood of the human son and eating his flesh. The human son was offered at the cross. It is quite common to offer humans.
When the poor get rich ... he become like the Devil ... an old proverb from Dal
The politicians are like life itself; they use rather carbon paper
I am the stoic
Life is always changing ... so am I
As the old Part-Wolf said,
"Politic is what we eat, how we dress, how we live ...
The best security policy is the co-operation
If you build after others advice you get a crow nest
If you build little by little after what you can afford it is much the same
Difficult that building business
Tau wow ... the Indians say ...
There is plenty of space on earth ... so why fight?
Some bright mind have calculated
That the entire world population could stand on the Gotland isle
And still some could sit down with an angle
Two things promote bald heads
Radioactivity and too short beds
Think, they are running around with one piece of soap to ten movie stars
The old philosophic question at the end
"Does the world exist when we do not talk about it?"
No news invented and no pioneers by following others' track
... it is not much better if you listen to old men telling that everything is already invented.
Taste is like the butt
Come to think when I walked behind a beautiful one
That there are several milliards of them and everyone is special
Maybe that is why I never can decide which is the best
The politicians tell they are increasing quality and service by cutting down?
.... Our Prime Minister told us to sow on the rocks? .........I think he have read it in the Bible and tried to impress us. But as always even politicians show their knowledge whence they open their mouth. There is no excuse for poor analysis and bad thinking.
I have followed politics for about 40 years. Nothing new and not much of the astonishing kind. It is nearly the same everywhere. Since history is my issue I naturally compare with the original "ring of thing" in our Celtic culture. I compare with the intentions in our first laws. I compare with the Declaration of Human Rights, which too few know.
The absurdities could only be laughed at, since we "small peoples" cannot do anything about it. If we want to understand it is simply the growth of population and that the nobles are too far away and too few make protests. The politics become the agenda for cow thieves, horsetrade and bartering with cows.
We are responsible as long as we do nothing about it.
Since politics are our common matter and good I cannot keep my mouth shut.
Vi spenderar ett helt golfliv i försök att prestera 100procent och misslyckas alltid. Det är så golf är. ... Mark James
I saw a map of our galaxy, the Watergate
In the middle read "Here we are"
I looked for Bill Clinton, but not in sight.
Maybe he was on the other side of the globe
Socrates' last words to a friend:
Please, offer a cock to the god of heeling.
He was a true optimist and his spirit never dies
Don't disarrange my circles, was Archimedes 'last words
Did he play the fool when the soldiers came or
Why not do businesses as usual even in front of the dead.
They interviewed a lady out of the Indian high society.
She shoved her gown with numerous diamonds and precious stones
"I think I deserve it", she said
Other nations and we pay much foreign aid to India
Instantly I have the problems of the world above my head
Last winter was the fashion "wild hair"
Now I got a whim that I should try the cock's crest
But with my bald-head not even paperhanger's paste would make it.
