Some Cartoon Illustrations for a few selected Observations (Cartoons subject to Copyright)

 

Observation # 2023. Socialism -- a jackboot disguised as Cinderella's slipper.

 

 

Observation # 97: No principle
                             Is invincible
                             In the flow
                             Of big dough

Based on #96. Money is like water: in sufficient volume, it erodes the bedrock of principle, and cuts its own channel.
 

 

 

 

 

Observation # 857: Inequality is the bite of the apple -- the "original sin" -- both necessary and deplorable -- at the heart of all existence.

 


 

 

Observation # 701: Political correctness: a gloss of lipstick on the snout of truth.

 

 

Observation #1831: We yearn for meaning -- but all we get is experience.


 

 

Observation # 279: Most will give up an acre of freedom for a closet of security.


 

Observation #709:  Reality is always the dowdy sister to Fancy.

Observation #706: A refusal to face reality allows it to stab you in the back.

 

 

 

Observation #1924. In the temple of infinite tolerance, there is no distinction between good and evil -- between devil's curse and angel's prayer. 

Observation # 651.  Gazing at the stars will not save you from the abyss at your feet.

 

 

 

Observation #321. Pretending there is no abyss will not repeal the law of gravity.

 

Observation 0:  Art is manís challenge to Time, his rebuke to Chaos; the protest will survive neither the triumph of fire, nor the finality of ice -- but it is better than the silence of consent.

 

 

 

 

Observation #1871. Multiple Cake Syndrome -- the desire to have one's cake and eat it, too -- to pretend that things mutually exclusive are actually compatible -- may be considered a reliable constant in the lexicon of human psychology.

Observation # 1847. Happiness is an elusive target -- it can be hit only unexpectedly -- with arrows aimed elsewhere.

 

 

 

Observation #492. Ideals are often like the Sirens of mythology Ė a seductively attractive lure to shipwreck.

 

 

        Observation #766:  Ice Cream -- the great melter of all resolve.

 

 

 

Observation #8: If, in the interests of an ideal circumstance, single-celled organisms had chosen equality as the ultimate good, then the present population of the world would consist entirely of single-celled organisms.     

 

 

Observation # 527. Equality offers ambrosia in a poisoned chalice -- but Merit has never acquired a taste for suicide.

 

 

  

Observation #1818: It is currently fashionable to suppress the truth in favour of harmony. But such bargains usually end with the Devil unscathed, and everything else in flames.

 

 

 

Observation #534. The level path is easy, but it will not bring you to the mountaintop.

 

Observation # 979. The more cherished the illusion, the more reviled is the teller of truth.

 

 

 

Observation # 612. The trouble with brains is -- they are so easily washed.
