Dreamers of the Day

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible." -T.E. Lawrence, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom"

Friends

"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What?! You too? I thought I was the only one!'"

-C.S. Lewis

As the saying goes in the South: "I smell what you stepped in!"

I love that Lewis quote.

I do NOT, however, love the quote you attributed to the Grand Ole' South.

You Yanks think that we Southerners are always stepping in something unfortunate and smelly, don't you?

Well, just for the record, we Southerners have perfectly clean shoes, thankyouverymuch

(with the exception of people from Mississippi- you never know WHAT you're gonna find on their shoes...)

That seems like such a down to earth quote for Lewis...love it.

Also like the other quote...people say that up here too

Four Loves... nice

Ha! I love it!! I think that's what Creth and Christian were thinking... esp. since they weren't invited to partake with us ;o)

 
At 6:55 AM, Blogger Creth said...

yes... Micah. now Christian and I can really be friends, because we both can say, "I wasn't invited to the party" when we were thinking "I'm the only one..."

And friendship is, strictly speaking, "reciprocal benevolence that inclines each person to be solicitous for the welfare of the other." That's from a guy down south, Plato. :)

Whoops...left a "that" out of my previous title.

JON????? Oh my goodness, you have stooped to mingle with the "commoners"?

WE are not worthy.....

Ok and you know there are other siblings that don't blog as well....you aren't the ONLY one.

 
At 6:30 PM, Blogger Micah & Brad said...

Right there with you, Jen, I too feel honored!!

 
At 8:45 PM, Blogger Creth said...

Jon.

I'm not going to give in to this "honored-to-be-with-ya" thing

you should feel happy to be with us!

we a fun group of people that enjoy typing more than anything else...

and aren't we friends???

Did everyone see Jon's new bio?

Jon's bio

He's officially one of the least liked people in the world now. Congrats!

 
At 5:51 AM, Blogger Creth said...

fancy!

 
At 5:52 AM, Blogger Jen said...

I did see it....

Christian I told him to let you know since you have been very worried that his pictures wasn't up there yet.

Jon-I feel so proud!

 
At 6:00 AM, Blogger Micah & Brad said...

did anyone besides me notice that Jon did NOT put as his interests "being with his friends"???

I think being a twin makes you a little more self-absorbed, though, right Jason?

;)

 
At 7:15 AM, Blogger Jason Mayes said...

Yeah, his interests are suing people and running marathons. He did mention about getting his pilots license after he takes over the world as well...

To banter with my brother-

"Plato was a bore"-Nietzsche

Oh, and my word verification says -

"theuyp"

Which really means nothing, but it makes me think it's trying to say:

"The oo-yip"

Which obviously means I haven't seen Grizzly Man yet, and I need to.

 
At 7:26 AM, Blogger Creth said...

YOU SHALL! YOU SHALL!!!

(and my word verification had both "hit" and "dad" in it...)

 
At 8:31 AM, Anonymous Jon said...

Yes, I value ya'll as friends and don't think of you as commoners. More as potential clients. :) (Yes, I am slapping my knee while saying this). Good Nietzsche quote; it's unfortunate he went insane.


Why am I commenting on the blog in the middle of the day? Because I have the privilege of attending a telephone deposition of an expert witness where we never really say a thing because none of the questions involve our clients (there's a gazillion defendants in the case). As a result, I put the phone on speaker, mute the mic, and surf the net. Yeah, tough job. ;)

"it's unfortunate he went insane."

-best response ever

EVER.

 
At 10:55 AM, Blogger Micah & Brad said...

oh come on, Creth, don't be trying to get on his good side now that he's a lawyer.

 
At 1:18 PM, Blogger christian said...

It's after 3, I'm falling asleep and there's too much to be done. Jason, what's for dinner?

 
At 2:29 PM, Blogger Creth said...

Micah.

I've been on Jon's good side... and BOY is it goooood

 
At 4:13 PM, Blogger christian said...

wow.

 
At 6:36 AM, Blogger Micah & Brad said...

yeah, Creth, if you have the ability to delete that last comment, you might want to. If you can't, maybe you can pay Jason to.

 
At 7:26 AM, Blogger christian said...

Micah, have you not learned anything about Creth so far? He is unabashed in almost every aspect of his life, save one or two I won't mention publicly.

 
At 9:37 AM, Blogger Creth said...

Micah.

you should listen to Christian, the man knows what he's talking about
