TOMS QUOTES #5

STATEMENTS OF THE OBVIOUS THE ONLY OBSTACLES IN LIFE ARE OUR OWN VIEWS. LIFE IS THE EDGE EFFECT CAUSED BY THE THRUST OF ENERGY THROUGH TIME. THE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO DESCRIBE (DEFINE) ITSELF BEING IS AN ILLUSION PERPETRATED BY PERCEPTION LIFE IS A TERM USED TO DESCRIBE THE TENDENCY OF EXISTENCE TO GENERATE SELF MOTIVATED PILES OF ENERGY. INTELLIGENCE IS A TERM USED TO DESCRIBE THE TENDENCY OF ENERGY FORMS TO REACT/INTERACT IN PREDICTABLE WAYS. WORDS/SPEECH ARE TOOLS USED TO MANIPULATE A PILE(S) OF ENERGY, CAUSING IT TO ACT IN A NON-INTUITIVE WAY. PURPOSE IS A WORD CREATED BY THE MIND TO GIVE ITSELF VALUE. KNOWING, THAT INTELLIGENCE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DEFINE THE TERM EXCEPT IN GENERALITIES.

TOMS QUOTES #3

TOMORROW BEGINS THE MOMENT WE STOP IMAGINING YESTERDAY. THE SECRET OF SUCCESS IS MERELY BEING SUCCESSFUL OPPORTUNITY IS REALIZATION THE MOMENT IS AN INTERFACE. TRANSLATING IDEAS INTO REALITY. CHANGE IS INEVITABLE, AND THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE. RE-MEMBERING OFTEN CREATES FRANKENSTEIN'S. KIND AND FRIENDLY BUT NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO DESCRIBE. EXPERIENCE IS THE BARTER WE USE TO PURCHASE OPPORTUNITY THE ONLY ABSOLUTE IS PERCEPTION, EVERYTHING ELSE IS TRANSITORY TO APPRECIATE BEAUTY, ONE MUST BE BEAUTIFUL LOVE IS, AND SO ARE WE

TOMS QUOTES #2

BLISS IS AN OPTION THAT MUST BE MANUALLY SELECTED. RAINBOWS ARE JUST A CLEVER SHOWING OF SPLIT LIGHT. NOTHING SAYS MORE ABOUT WHO WE ARE THAN OUR PERCEPTIONS. GRASS IS SO INVOLVED WITH BEING, IT SIMPLY HASN'T THE TIME TO DISCUSS THE MERITS OF EXISTENCE WITH HUMANS. HUMANS ARE SO REMOVED FROM BEING, THAT ALL THEY DO IS TALK ABOUT BEING THIS OR THAT. DREAMS ARE THE PREFERRED DRUG OF ADDICTION FOR EXISTENCE. THE ONLY WAY OUT OF HERE IS THROUGH. THE WORLD WE EXPERIENCE HAS VERY LITTLE IN COMMON WITH THE WORLD WE DESCRIBE. LIFE IS A GUESS, THE EGO AN APPROXIMATION, THE REST IS IN OUR MINDS. AN OPEN MOUTH OFTEN INVITES THE USERS FEET AS FODDER. EXPERIENCE IS THE WAY WE MEASURE OUR LIVES ACCOMPLISHMENTS.

QUOTES BY TOM #1

NEVER EXPECT MORE FROM LIFE THAN WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT. WE ALL ARE MADE OF THE VERY SAME STUFF BITS OF STARS LONG SINCE SHATTERED IN INTER-STELLAR SPACE. A BIT OF EVERYTHING WE ARE, YET SOME HOW WE'VE MANAGED TO FORGET CREATIVITY IS MERELY THE RE-ASSEMBLY OF EXISTENCE INTO NEW FORMS LIFE IS THE EDGE EFFECT CAUSED BY THE THRUST OF ENERGY THROUGH TIME. SPACE IS AN ILLUSION USED TO HOLD EXISTENCE. WITHOUT SPACE LIFE WOULD NOT SURVIVE. ALL MANIFESTATIONS ARE REFLECTIONS OF IDEAS AND THOUGHTS THE PURPOSE OF LIFE IS TO DESCRIBE ITSELF THE REASON FOR EXISTENCE IS TO GIVE LIFE SOMETHING TO DO. ANYONE WHO LOOKS, EVENTUALLY SEES. A PERSON WHO TILLS THE LAND, LIVES IN A FARM, IS CALLED A FARMER, AND DOES THE FARMER THING. A PERSON WHO TILLS LOVE, LIVES IN AN EVE, IS CALLED AN EVER, AND DOES THE EVERYTHING.
