Atoms & Stars (things I've been thinking about:)

1. Goodnight Irene by The Weavers, 1950.
Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in town
Sometimes I take a great notion
To jump into the river and drown.

2. Fosco Maraini's musing on K2;
"It is atoms and stars. It has the nakedness of the world before the first man - or of the cindered planet after the last."

3. Zhi Feng's commentary on the Chinese professor jailed for running a sex club:
"They confounded right and wrong and poisoned the social atmosphere. How dare you say they did no harm to others?"
