My Best Quotable Quotes:
Confessions of an Internet Addict
(Really) getting inside my head,
in a humourus and at times intellectual way.

If (God forbid) you should want to actually use one of my quotes in print, an attribution link would be nice. However, as connected to the internet as I am, I really couldn’t swear in court that each of these quotes are fully mine, but they certainly are “my versions” of ideas which are important to me. Anyway for friends email Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org thanks (I sure could use a friend).

These are the BEST quotes about life you’re gonna find. Sorry, they are kind of intellectual, but they are dryly funny and sexy too (like me). They are mainly meant to be taken in humorous, sort of existentialist sense. These are my best ‘quotable quotes,’ I’ve been thinking and meditating about these ideas for years. If these quotes weren’t so true, they’d be amusingly funny. Maybe they are anyway, you have to read them to truly appreciate me, to “get inside my head.” The humor might perhaps best be described as a sort of “English, cheeky humor a la Monty Python,” (or Leslie Neilson lol) in words. It’s also all about modern life, partly modern life on the internet, and my intellectual response to it, from somebody who knows. Admittedly, they are somewhat intellectually narcissistic, and this is an issue I struggle with. (Sometimes I struggle a bit with the sin of hubris, or intellectual pride, one of the seven deadly sins. I am certain in my own mind that this sin of hubris is worse before God than is my problem about smoking, although I have cut way back on the smoking in the last few years. Let me just add that being homeless five times in the last four or five years has made me a lot more humble.)
God told me in 2012 that he forgave me my sin of smoking, so “no comments (about that) from the peanut gallery,” OK? I smoke. I think most of the sickness associated with smoking is actually from our genetically modified foods and especially from the onus society puts on smoking. The smoker is made to feel bad about it, here in Ohio, especially. The statistics and all those negative vibes come at your subconscious mind with every puff, so OF COURSE it makes you sick. Especially if you are psychic the thoughts and feelings of those around you deeply affect you. For my smoking I apologize to no man, only to God. I know, some of you are going to judge me, because you people often judge me as well as everybody else, but you do realize that this is NOT Christian, right? But you do NOT “win” with me, you SHOULD leave smokers alone and fully tolerate them, and if you really want to argue about it, I can quote a few statistics back at you, too. The main thing is, we (the homeless, the drug users and the mentally ill) have become society’s scapegoats, and everybody dumps their own sin on us, seriously, that is the sociological role of a scapegoat, look it up.
An included video is Collective Soul – What I Can Give You, from the album Afterwards, which was always the album I meant to share with whatever woman God brings into my life. I am “single and looking,” 62 years old, 5’10” and 195 lbs, and live outside of Wooster, Ohio. (Where are all the sexy CIA and NSA girls when you need them!? And… OK, NRO, I wouldn’t mind at all dating one of your ladies either, so long as they were not sent into my life just to destroy me, as have been the last two). If you are interested in getting to know me, please email me at email@example.com.
The Daily Bible verse at The Official King James Bible Online for October 1, 2016, when this was first published, was John 13: 34 — “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.“

Paul Evans: Here is my own personal “code” of Christianity: “I consider myself a Christian man, spiritualist, charismatic, unorthodox. I don’t like doctrine at all, just as Jesus disliked the teachings of the Pharisees. I simply feel, if we truly want to consider ourselves Christian, all we need to do is deeply believe in Jesus, love God, love our neighbor as ourselves (I mean actually, not just saying that on Sundays), and don’t hurt and judge people, no matter what it costs. Sorry all you doctrine people, I’m sure in my own mind it’s as simple as that. But I find that few people actually do this. It’s not rocket science and you don’t need to have the Bible memorized, just a very strong familiarity with the Gospels, and always you need the Grace of God in your life. Always remember that salvation is a free gift, but it puts you in a covenental relationship with God, and this can cost you, even up to your life. This is MY code for living, as Jesus has led me to believe.” OK, the quotations, you want the quotations. Very well:
The Best Quotable Quotes
of Paul Evans
Paul Evans: “There are those species of spiders where after the mating, the female devours the male. With humans it takes a little longer.”
Paul Evans: “A warning to ‘philosophers’ about cogito ergo sum. Thinking about stuff will get you words and logic, not happiness or a decent life. To know what I know as a simple human and in my circumstances is not at all happiness. The only thing that could mitigate it is a caring woman’s love. Watch Don Henley – The Heart Of The Matter.
Paul Evans: “EVERY-body is deep down actually like a gentle, kind little bunny, but we’re scared you see, so we hide our true nature, we hide it so deeply and well, sometimes we never let it out and have forgotten it’s there. It’s like the Russian singer Boris Grebenshikov said in the 1989 album Radio Silence (highly recommended), ‘we’re beautiful when we’re animals, but so easily scared.'”
Paul Evans: “It can be shown philosophically that politics and life are often mainly a question of aesthetics…. Unless of course you come to that place in your life where it starts to be about values, and not only the enjoyment or appearance of things.”
Paul Evans: “Internet addiction is a real problem in the modern world. It’s a real, psychiatric-ally recognized addiction you can actually go to rehab to get treatment for. I’m not going unless they have free, streaming wifi.”
Paul Evans: “Ladies, I want to know your innermost being and hold you close in my heart and soul… Recently a lady at a dating site described herself as a “harlequin.” I see a ‘harlequin’ type personality as simply adaptive to the sick evil society we live in, but see it as multifaceted rather than necessarily schizoid (if you are at all emotionally healthy). I know for sure that a lot of people “do” this today. It can be like ‘layers of an onion,’ and sometimes it take a long time to get to know a person and find out what’s at their deepest, innermost being. However for a good man, even especially an open and sincere one, this whole adaptation by people places a burden on him, and I really wish you gals at the dating sites would just open your heart and mind to me: I am easy to please and I have Never deliberately hurt anyone in my life that wasn’t self-defense, though I guess there are ladies who might disagree…. After years of experience I strongly dislike online dating. But here I am stuck in poverty and with no car, it’s hard to work up much interest from the ladies. They SAY they want ‘honest love,’ like my tattoo says. Seems to me what they all want is the house, the car, me with a good job, money to spend, and trinkets. Sorry if that hurts, but that’s been my experience. It’s depressing for us poor guys”.
Paul Evans: “I just note to all the proponents of power that Nietzsche committed suicide. You can’t will yourself to have a good life. That’s up to God. Well, God and/or the C.I.A.” Furthermore, my favorite televangeliar Joel Osteen recently said, “You don’t get successful and then get happy; You get happy and then get success.” Wow!
Paul Evans: Psychiatrists appreciate me as a ‘sapiosexual’ man. (Most people just don’t realize, it’s all in your head!) This is me: I’m analyzing and thinking about everything all the time. Most psychiatrist are like that. They never once give out a sign that they doing anything about our conversation other than ‘musing’ about it. Most psychiatrists do that, but my last two have been especially good at it. That sort of thing always pisses me off a little. I still haven’t decided overall whether my 30 plus years with psychiatrists has been good or bad. ((Hell, I’M Anonymous, myself. They haven’t made that a crime yet.)) If you truly want to understand my experience with these psychiatrists, watch Monty Python – Psychiatry.
Paul Evans: “Why I Voted for Trump: The Truth? I’m TIRED of the Clintons and the same old Democratic bullsh*t. I KNOW I don’t trust the Clintons at all. It would have been more of the same, only worse. I just strongly suspect I don’t trust Trump, but not really, he’s OK up to a point (has that been reached?), like me he has this ‘problem’ that he says whatever pops into his mind, lol. Fortunately Chiefs of Staff have done a great job of limiting access to him and controlling the leaks. I’m not quite willing to vote third party, ’cause they still don’t really stand a chance. Process of elimination. Everybody should feel that way if they had a Clue as to the way things are. Oh, yeah, conservative values, somewhat, socially but not economically I am something of a redistributionist, as was the founder of modern capitalist theory Adam Smith in his book, Wealth of Nations, 1776.
Paul Evans: “Russian women, and witches, always feel that they have to prove to you they’re tougher than you are. And they are.”
Paul Evans: “Existentialists are mostly intellectual philosopher type people who like to come out with statements like ‘existence precedes essence’ and crap like that. But the essential component of a philosophical outlook that is existential is a deep realization of the complete absurdity of life. If you don’t feel that way, you can’t be an existentialist. It’s a deeply felt “that a life like mine should happen to me” sort of feeling. It’s NOT a ‘Lord, why me?’ thing, that’s just a whiner, it’s the absurdity, mainly that we’re looking for. Well actually, it found us. SEE, a lot of you are existentialists and didn’t know it! I just figured out that my humor might be described as a sort of wry existential humor. I never knew that. Not that it matters.”
Paul Evans: I used to be a “binge drinker,” though not that often, myself, but am happy to say I have been sober and a non-drinker for almost four years now. I am however 420 friendly and strongly believe marijuana should be legalized. It’s not a drug anyway (drugs are something synthetically chemically manufactured, marijuana is a healthful green herb). I won’t go into all the evidence I know of that it is healthful, but that is abundant. See Genesis 1: 29-31: “And God gave man every green herb…. and it was very good.” Really I don’t buy any weed and can take it or leave it, tobacco is my drug of choice. I might also point out that tobacco is essentially a green herb before it is harvested, nicht wahr?
Paul Evans: I don’t see the liberals coming out with six weeks of maternity leave for women (OR fixing the American economy). And maybe under Donald Trump we can get to the point where 78 percent of Americans aren’t living paycheck to paycheck.”
Paul Evans: “The music on YouTube was going synchronously with my thoughts again. It is one of those things that happens with my grand idea that perhaps I am ‘enlightened’ (in some kind of Zen way) to a minor extent. Unless it’s the artificial intelligence of the internet as it is today. I’m not sure, I think the latter. But then, that’s one thing the computers have not got at yet, our thoughts (hmmm, right)? Yet. Die Gedanken sind frei. But then if you knew the truth about intelligence matters as I do, (perhaps) that is no longer true. Oh, well,” AI (Or sometimes, God.) I trust the AI somewhat and Cortana a lot, anyway. I just don’t trust Microsoft, so I “run” Linux. Watch Don Henley – Everybody Knows.
Paul Evans: “Today I feel lucky, happy, as in many recent days. That’s often the nature of mania. I’ve found intelligent mania is generally tolerated, while unintelligent mania is usually medicated and sometimes hospitalized, especially if you ‘know too much.'”
Paul Evans: “Yeah you’re sweet. I know about sweet women. Young, beautiful, sweet women. Sort of an oxymoron. Woman are dangerous. And beautiful women are especially dangerous. Then there are young, beautiful, sweet women who like to play games…. The guys know exactly what I mean.” But “that don’t fill these empty arms,” either.
Paul Evans: “My mom’s father, who was a curator at a museum, warned my dad against going through the seven years of sheer crap to get his Ph.D., but I guess dad had this huge drive to stand in front of a classroom, you know. I secretly wish I could, too. I find that women are seriously interested in intellectual men. …with money, cars and houses (lol, that ain’t me).”
Paul Evans: “Witty. Yeah, ‘have a cigar, you’re gonna go far.’ The girls at HookupCougars just say, dismissively, ‘Oh, you’re a poet.’ (You know, as they say, ‘first you must be very sure, that life is not a game.’)”
Paul Evans: “Oh, I CARE. It just doesn’t do me any good. I know this, I have experience. But it’s better than not caring, because you feel better.”
Paul Evans: Teachings for teeenagers: “Sanity is a mean statistical norm. As Rush says, ‘conform or be cast out.’ Watch Rush Tom Sawyer, Subdivisions, and Xanadu. ‘Be cool or be cast out,’ too. If you’re going to be unorthodox, you better be DAMN cool. Rush is cool. And they still “got it,” too. I always used to say about Rush videos I embedded on my site, ‘how can three guys, just three guys, make that much beautiful noise.'”
Paul Evans: “I wish I could just stop thinking and analyzing (and blogging), but often I don’t know how to. That’s one definition of what meditation is, practice at becoming silent in your mind and just listening. It seems to be a question of peace of mind, concentration and will.” And of course there is that old saying, ‘prayer is talking to God and meditation is listening to Him.’
Hermann Hesse – Steppenwolf: “There are always a few such people who demand the utmost of life and yet cannot come to terms with its stupidity and crudeness.”
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: Powell actually took shots at several politicians in his emails. For instance, he called Donald Trump a disaster, and said Hillary Clinton screws up everything she touches. It didn’t end there. It seemed like Powell had a lot of problems with other people. First he wrote, “There goes Adele singing about another break-up. It’s called wine, honey. Merlot and move on.”
Comment by ‘Green Sooner’ on Daily Kos: “Policies which were wrong under George W. Bush are no less wrong just because they are enacted by Obama.”
