The first is from the notice board at Cocklebiddy -

The darkness of the Soul
Is not lighted by moving the Body
to another place.


I know a few people who need to think about that one.


The other is the source of my 'friends' icon made by addierox. The full quote (from Grey's Anatomy) follows -

No one likes to lose control. But still there are times when it just gets away from you. When the world stops spinning and you realize that nothing’s gonna save you. No matter how hard you fight it, you fall. And it’s scary as hell. Except, there’s an upside to free falling — it’s the chance you give your friends to catch you.

And is particularly apt in regards to my situation over the last few weeks. Thank to all the friends that continue to catch me.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liechtenstein

In June 2003 the state tourism agency decided to give a boost to the country's tourism by offering to rent out the country to businesses and other organizations for conference hosting, weddings, or other such events. The company will be given keys to the capital city and be offered team-building/touristy activities and attractions, such as wine-tasting, tobogganing, and full access to one of the country's royal castles. Liechenstein is a little smaller in area than the capital of the United States, Washington, D.C..[5]

Karl Schwarzler, along with the entire nation of Liechenstein, was awarded the Ig Nobel Prize in Economics in 2003 for this unique enterprise.
