Do not lose time on daily trivialities. Do not dwell on petty detail. For all of these things melt away and drift apart within the obscure traffic of time. Live well and live broadly. You are alive and living now. Now is the envy of all of the dead.
MAN COOK MEAT WITH FIRE
Not “man show fire to meat and then eat it while it still squirts and pulses.”
KILL IT DED WITH FIRE YUS
“Medium rare” = “good vet could get it up on its feet in an hour or two.” That’s not cooked with fire. That’s threatened with fire.
I DO NOT SEASON STEAK
Start seasoning steak and before you know it? You’re French. No. I go to my personal butcher and say, “Give me a piece of meat that’s been sawn off an animal.” And they throw me a chunk of animal. And then I say “Show me the animal this meat was sawn off.” And they show me a picture of a crying cow with a gaping hole in its side. And I say “Did the animal cry when you sawed my piece of meat off it?” And they show me a Ziploc bag full of cow tears. And I say, “Rub that on my steak! Let that be my seasoning!”
Received this from my brother. Worth a repost.
Ahh the day of impending death. When we realize the mortal coil is wrapped firmly around our windpipes, choking us into oblivion. . . HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BRO! !
