A Quote by Raphie on hypocrisy morality

I doubt I can prove to you that I'm not a hypocrite. To some extent I believe we all are. As with "threats to the nation," as with "morality," hypocrisy is and always will be measured in degrees, not by its presence or absence.

A Quote by Raphie on truth failure success

Every time we deny that truth in ourselves and in those who lead us, we step one step closer, not to failure, but to a failure to be better.

A Quote by Raphie on abuse, violence, music, b-side, piper, fear, kite, and sorrow

I know.  You got beat up.  So did I.  And then we beat up each other.  Just call it a B-side melody with an A-side whiplash like NOBODY business.  The way I see it, the best way to deal with it is to just write a better tune and flip the A-side to the B-side and the B-side to the Z.  Put it away folks and let it sleep because there’s a piper man a playin’ to a wholly brand new beat.  Flip the Z side to the B side and the A side to the C.  That my friends is how you navigate the darkness; to turn the fright into a kite and the sorrow into sight.

A Quote by Raphie on trust selflessness selfishness karma

Call it a sly act of selfishness if you want, but the act of giving trust has this weird way of getting you more, not less, than you ask for. Except, of course, when it doesn't.

A Quote by Raphie on iraq war naivete loss death knowledge certainty

As the War rages on I sit here still on the same safe perch I sat on before the missiles flew and toss out words to the world. I consider myself fortunate, my only loss my belief in the indominitability of American force and our determination to do good in the world. I mind very much, however, the reasons behind that loss, all the thousands upon thousands who have lost so much more because we chose not to know all those things we could have and assumed we knew all those things we didn’t.
