No one imagines that [a] symphony is supposed to improve as it goes along, or that the whole object of playing is to reach the finale. The point of music is discovered in every moment of playing and listening to it. It is the same, I feel, with the greater part of our lives, and if we are unduly absorbed in improving them we may forget altogether to live them.

Alan Watts, philosopher, writer, and speaker (1915-1973)


Catch-and-release, that's like running down pedestrians in your car and then, when they get up and limp away, saying -- Off you go! That's fine. I just wanted to see if I could hit you.

Ellen DeGeneres, comedian, television host, and actress (b. 1958)

I especially like the first one. We always say we wanna live our lives but most of the time, we forget to do so.

We're just absorbed in what we have to do than what we really want to do.

I have often wondered about the pride in "catch and release" myself. Seems like torturing fish to me.

I love the catch and release quote. Sure they go back into the water but with torn lips and ripped up mouths so eating is probably impossible. And that is humane how???

I think catch and release teaches the fish to be more wary of lures and hopefully to teach their littles ones.

Catch and Release? Wasn't that Zsa Zsa's philosphy on marriage?
