Sometimes I Wish That It Would Rain Here

self-reference and a koan

two great quotes I heard recently. the first one is your oxymoron for the day:

The only thing I cannot tolerate is intolerance.

this is somewhat akin to fearing fear itself, except that it doesn't make the speaker appear brave and insightful, but rather self-important and unreflective.

and quote number two:

Social interaction is simply more than one person doing things together.

I really like this one. if you just read it, nothing seems awry, but as soon as you actually try to parse it, the sentence sort of falls apart. a bit Zen, I'd say.
