I was a selfemployed livingstatue called the EightFoot Bride, and I love telling peopleI did this for a job, because everybody always wants to know, who are these freaksreal life. (Laughter) Hello. I painted myself whiteone day, stood on a box, put a hat or a can at my feet,
and when someone came byand oppedmoney, I handed them a flower and some intense eye contact. And if they didn't take the flower, I threwa gestureof sadness and longing as they walked away. (Laughter) So I had the most profoundencounters with people,
especially lonely people who looked like they hadn't talkedto anyoneweeks, and we would get this beautiful momentof prolonged eye contact being alloweda city street, and we would sort of fallin love a little bit. And my eyes would say quot;Thank you. I see you.quot;
And their eyes would say quot;Nobody ever sees me. Thank you.quot; I would get harassed sometimes. People would yell at me from their cars. quot;Get a job!quot; (Laughing) And I'd be, like, quot;This is my job.quot;
But it hurt, because it made me fear that I was somehow doingsomething unjoblike and unfair, shameful. I had no idea how perfecta real eduion I was getting for the music business on this box.

THE ART OF WAR by Sun Tzu complete audiobook Fab Audio Books
I. LAYING PLANS 1. Sun Tzu said: The art of war is of vitalimportance to the State. 2. It is a matter of life and death, a roadeither to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no accountbe neglected. 3. The art of war, then, is governed by fiveconstant factors, to be taken into accountone's deliberations, when seeking to determinethe conditions obtainingthe field. 4. These are: (1) The Moral Law; (2) Heaven;(3) Earth; (4) The Commander; (5) Method and discipline.
5,6. The Moral Law causes the people to bein complete accord with their ruler, so that they will follow him regardless of their lives,undismayed by any danger. 7. Heaven signifies night and day, cold andheat, times and seasons. 8. Earth comprises distances, great and small;danger and security; open ground and narrow passes; the chances of life and death. 9. The Commander stands for the virtues ofwisdom, sincerity, benevolence, courage and strictness. 10. By method and discipline are to be understoodthe marshaling of the armyits proper subdivisions,
the graduations of rank among the officers,the maintenance of roads by which supplies may reach the army, and the control of militaryexpenditure. 11. These five heads should be familiar toevery general: he who knows them will be victorious; he who knows them not will fail. 12. Therefore,your deliberations, whenseeking to determine the military conditions, let them be made the basis of a comparison,in this wise: 13. (1) Which of the two sovereigns is imbuedwith the Moral lawé (2) Which of the two generals has most abilityé(3) With whom lie the advantages derived from
Heaven and Earthé(4) On which side is discipline most rigorously enforcedé(5) Which army is strongeré (6) On which side are officers and men morehighly trainedé (7) In which army is there the greater constancybothreward and punishmenté 14. By means of these seven considerationsI can forecast victory or defeat. 15. The general that hearkens to my counseland acts upon it, will conquer: let such a one be retainedcommand! The general thathearkens not to my counsel nor acts upon it, will suffer defeat:let such a one be dismissed!
16. While heading the profit of my counsel,avail yourself also of any helpful circumstances over and beyond the ordinary rules. 17. According as circumstances are favorable,one should modify one's plans. 18. All warfare is based on deception. 19. Hence, when able to attack, we must seemunable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make theenemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. 20. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feigndisorder, and crush him.
21. If he is secure at all points, be preparedfor him. If he issuperior strength, evade him. 22. If your opponent is of choleric temper,seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. 23. If he is taking his ease, give him norest. If his forces are united, separate them. 24. Attack him where he is unprepared, appearwhere you are not expected. 25. These military devices, leading to victory,must not be divulged beforehand. 26. Now the general who wins a battle makesmany calculationshis temple ere the battle
