RACONTEUR-original quotations and aphorisms -R12

1. It is better to catch and release, but if youre hungry... its better to eat the bloody thing!

2. Revenge is a soup best served with a smile. ( more soup your honour?)

3. In the end... who can say what is right and good , all we can hope for is a happy sleep, good dreams, appetite and a hearty sh*t.

4. Eat when youre hungry, drink when youre thirsty , sleep when youre tired and if theres water around... take a shower from time to time; occasionally have a glass of red wine for your stomach, a clove of garlic for your blood and a teaspoon of olive oil for your hair and skintone and constitution...but most important; take the time to watch the sun rise or set ; for these things are good for the soul. Smile and be friendly to everyone you meet on the road of life.This is the travellers code.

5. A smile is better than breakfast, a laugh better than medicine and a sh*t better than sex... for these are things you absolutely need in life.

6. Become the mother of the drug, the father of its child - and if not...enjoy the rollercoaster ride.

7. What the world needs now is more colour. Judge a man by the color of his heart.

8. With great power, comes great responsibility, and with great responsibility comes great sacrifice... who wants to live in Tahiti?

9. A warriors death is on the battlefield, a sailors upon the sea, for to win the greatest glory is to die upon your stage of destiny.

10. True revolution requires violence ; but the best revolution is one that terrorises the darkness in our hearts.

11. The greatest journey lies within.

12. Judge not a man by his appearance, creed or circumstances; rather look into the color of his heart and see who he really is. We all wear masks upon masks.

13. Homogeny be damned!- It is in our differences that our beauty as human beings is found and fully expressed.

14. We are One within the One.


16. Unity in the community, oneness in our hearts; but be true to who you are in the symphony of life.

17. A man with authority needs no stinking badges, dirty money or university diplomas... and certainly no permission from anyone what he truly feels is right in his heart.

18. There can only be one true death for me; one that is written in the stars ; I am a traveller ever on the road and cannot do otherwise.

19.To know yourself can be both blessing and curse. For to deny your calling is to live a 1000 deaths. Be true to you! Amen.

20. I say it once and for all: " off with their heads!" It is time for the sleeper to awaken. Freedom in 21st century Britain is an illusion spun by the establishment. England is occupied by pirates.

21. Whoever wields the reins of power , it makes no difference... in the end; all becomes many shades of grey. We are all living in a rodeo of clowns. The chief of whom wields the biggest stick.

22. If this is the way Queen Elizabeth treats her prisoners... she doesn't deserve to have any! ( on the conditions in HMP Wandsworth- 20 deaths in custody in 3 years)

23. The Universe conspires to help those who know what they desire.

24. All is everything and everything is all...and that is something;

it is not nothing... it is everything... and that is all.

25.When the Kingdoms of the world shall fall, judgement shall come on us all.

26.The only way out is in, that is the way to begin;

The kingdom of God is within;

Cleanse the heart from all its sin...

Thats the way to begin...

27. Doctor...you better do something quick...why?....I'm being bored to death!

Paul Denton Claim this poet

I've been writing poetry since I was 14 . I use poetry to channel my feelings. Its what I love to do... its therapy...its life... it makes me a whole person again when I'm feeling broken...its the music of my soul...and a way of externalising my internalisations...of loving again in the impossibility of living in this material world...poetry to me is the mathematics of balance. This equilibrium within. I hope to think I am a serious poet.If you want to email me : jesuscaravan@yahoo.com. I am publishing a book shortly called " POETRY SHALL PREVAIL!" I thank you. more…
