I'm in a bit of an emotional rut so in attempts to jiggle my brain please share the most interesting things you've thought of or heard. Quotes, ideas, advice, inspirational, philosophical, jokes....they can be witty, funny, philosophical....whatever life wisdom has stuck with you along the way. What entertaining and interesting things come to mind?
To start I'll share a quote that reminds me to never settle on a belief, to always apply critical thinking before confirmation biases take over when faced with new information "The future belongs to those who can learn, unlearn, and relearn".
Thanks everyone :)

cemeteries, but sometimes
the frightening dead
of the life-size, realistic
Santa Muerte statue
in the botanica
a few blocks away;
death seated on a throne

grin rictus within the mantilla,
in bas-relief upon her chair.
Books on black magic,
and red and green
and even white,
two boys with machetes
