FISH (fly-replete, in depth of June,
Dawdling away their wat'ry noon)
Ponder deep wisdom, dark or clear,
Each secret fishy hope or fear.
Fish say, they have their Stream and Pond;
But is there anything Beyond?
FishThis life cannot be All, they swear,
For how unpleasant, if it were!
One may not doubt that, somehow, Good
Shall come of Water and of Mud;
And, sure, the reverent eye must see
A Purpose in Liquidity.
We darkly know, by Faith we cry,
The future is not Wholly Dry.
My idea is to get what little happiness you can out of this life. We should enjoy all the happiness that breaks through the clouds of misfortune. Life is poor enough at best. No one should fail to pick up every jewel of joy that can be found in his path. Everyone should be as happy as he can, provided he is not happy at the expense of another, and no person rightly constituted can be happy at the expense of another.

the Impossible and beyond the Impossible are the religions of the world.

Public schools will suffer if the U.S. Congress passes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Write your Congressional representatives expressing your opposition to this theocratic onslaught against our secular form of government. And it's not only the Federal politicians who are being pressured by religious interests to fund their superstitions. In Wisconsin and other states, vouchers are being legitimized in order to undermine public (non-religious education).
You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses. Ziggy
Why complain about anything? One reason is to get action of some kind that rights a wrong, achieving justice real or imagined. Another is to relive stress. Some complaints make life better in ways large and small, whereas some have adverse consequences. It depends.
