It's been amazing to watch, because for 'Thor',
which was always a mid-selling book,
to be in the top ten for every single issue since the
reboot is just a great compliment.
- J. Michael Straczynski

Every time I got 'Amazing Spider-Man' or 'Fantastic

we got pulled into some big event book or crossover
and it cost momentum and messed badly with the pacing

- J. Michael Straczynski

When the 'Seinfeld' show said it was going to be a show about nothing,
everybody said it couldn't - wouldn't work.
It did.

between religion and science because,

Where are we going? The methodologies are diametrically opposed,
but their motivation is the same; the wellspring is the same in both cases.
- J. Michael Straczynski

We know that if memory is destroyed in one part of the brain,
it can be sometimes re-created on a different part of the brain.
And once we can unravel that amino chain of chemicals
that is responsible for memory,
I see no reason why we can't unlock it and,
essentially, wipe out what's there.
- J. Michael Straczynski

I'm delirious with joy.
It proves that if you confront the universe with good
intentions in your heart,
it will reflect that and reward your intent.
Usually.
It just doesn't always do it in the way you expect.

The point of mythology or myth is to point to the horizon
and to point back to ourselves:
This is who we are;
this is where we came from; and this is where we're going.
And a lot of Western society over the last hundred years -
the last 50 years really -
has lost that.
We have become rather aimless and wandering.
- J. Michael Straczynski

I was very clear that I wanted to keep 'Thor' out of
the rest of the Marvel universe for no less than the first six issues.
And the success of the book, I think,
speaks well to that decision.
- J. Michael Straczynski

It's never too late -

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.
Because things are not the target,
you, your innermost being, is the target -
not a beautiful house, but a beautiful you;
not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

The moment you start seeing life
as non-serious, a playfulness,
all the burden on your heart disappears.
All the fear of death, of life,
of love - everything disappears.

If you live through it, you start looking

He consists only of one quality: witnessing.
This small word witnessing contains the whole of spirituality.
Witness that you are not the body.
Witness that you are not the mind.
Witness that you are only a witness.
As the witnessing deepens,
you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy.
- Osho

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
- A. A. Milne (Winnie-The-Pooh)

Self-respect is often mistaken for arrogance
when in reality it is the opposite.
When we can recognize all our good qualities
as well as or faults with neutrality,
we can start to appreciate ourselves
as we would a dear friend

To embrace the journey towards our full potential
we need to become our own loving teacher and coach.
Spurring ourselves on to become better human beings,
we develop true regard for ourselves,
and our life will become sacred.
- Osho

One of the greatest titles we can have is "old friend."

can cause us to neglect those friends.

we hope will call us "old friend" in the years to come.
