Who is this Button for?

Soft speakers, low-talkers[1] and other whisperers.

The insecure.


Provocative Suggestions

Low talkers: Are you a man or a mouse? Squeak up!

At least have mercy on the hard of hearing.

The insecure: The world has plenty of loudmouths but is desperately short of intelligent listeners like yourself.

Snorers: Assert your inalienable right to a fair share of oxygen, even when you are asleep.


I'm often accused of saying some pretty rotten things about my mother-in-law. But quite honestly, she's only got one major fault - it's called breathing.

(Les Dawson)

Religions are numberless

sects many

yet all follow only two ways:

one takes you to knowledge

and the other to love.

Reaching the goal

one discovers with surprise

that there is no knowledge

separate from love;

that, truly, love is knowledge

and that the secret gate

to both is one:

the breath.

(C.M. Chen)

Something to consider

It's your birthright. Really...
