I have a stepladder. It’s a very nice stepladder but it’s sad that I never knew my real ladder. Craig Charles

One only gets to the top rung on the ladder by steadily climbing up one at a time, and suddenly, all sorts of powers, all sorts of abilities which you thought never belonged to you – suddenly become within your own possibility and you think, ‘well, I’ll have a go, too’. Margaret Thatcher

EXTRACT FROM 
SINGING THE SNAKE
(A poem of Ayers Rock)
Take time to look, look again -
feel the land through your feet;
the Snake will not harm those
who show the proper respect.
Those who rush in must be strangers.

"It will attack strangers."

A DILIGENT SEARCH FOR WISDOM
Seeking and searching with the same fervour as seeking for silver 
and other hidden treasures.

Nothing is more noble, nothing more venerable than fidelity. Faithfulness and truth are the most sacred excellences and endowments of the human mind. (Marcus Tullius Cicero)

proverbs 21:16 The man that awandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

brisbane 011

Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all ends.
J. R. R. Tolkien (1892-1973), The Lord of the Rings, book four (1954)
