Quote by General Robert E. Lee
I like whiskey. I always did, and that is why I never drink it.
This quote implies that the speaker has a fondness for whiskey but chooses not to consume it. Despite their liking for it, they intentionally avoid drinking it, suggesting a level of restraint or self-control. It highlights a personal decision influenced by the individual's self-awareness or their desire to maintain a certain lifestyle or avoid the potential negative consequences associated with alcohol consumption.
Sounds travel through space long after their wave patterns have ceased to be detectable by the human ear: some cut right through the ionosphere and barrel on out into the cosmic heartland, while others bounce around, eventually being absorbed into the vibratory fields of earthly barriers, but in neither case does the energy succumb; it goes on forever - which is why we, each of us, should take pains to make sweet notes.
In asking forgiveness of women for our mythologizing of their bodies, for being unreal about them, we can only appeal to their own sexuality, which is different but not basically different, perhaps, from our own. For women, too, there seems to be that tangle of supplication and possessiveness, that descent toward infantile undifferentiation, that omnipotent helplessness, that merger with the cosmic mother-warmth, that flushed pulse-quickened leap into overestimation, projection, general mix-up.
