Welcome to the Merkin Lounge. This is the first page that I ever attempted to build and was successful at. I started with my favorite links and places to go and went from there. After years on the net this list grew in size and they ended up as seperate pages full of those links and some of the pictures that refelect the general ideas. Being curious, my links will take you to all sorts of places and will open your mind to new ideas that you may have seen or may be completely new. Search the web with the best search engines available. Download your favorite software quickly and easily. Read magazines or books that you just don't want to buy. This is your starting point for going anywhere and doing anything on the net. Kick back, relax and most importantly enjoy the lounge.
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And being one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far I as I could
To where it bent into the undergrowth;
Then the other, just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if i should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somwhere in the ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
"Auguries of Innocence"
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
"Resolve to be tender with the young,
compassionate with the aged,
sympathetic with the striving,
and tolerant with the weak and wrong;
sometime in your life
you will have been all of these things."
"Two rules to success in life:
1. Don't tell people everything you know."
"All my life I wanted to be someone;
I guess I should have been more specific."
"I can picture a world without war,
a world without hate. And I can
picture us attacking that world,
because they'd never expect it."
Joy increases as you give it
and diminishes as you try
to keep it for yourself.
In giving it you will accumulate
a deposit of joy greater
than you ever believed
-Norman Vincent Peale
