Give every man thy ear but few thy voice.
The gods themselves cannot reclaim their gifts. They may rob us of our future and embitter our present, but our past they may not touch. With all its laughter and delight and glamour it is our eternal possession.
LM Montgomery – The Story Girl
Ever tried? Ever Failed? No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

It is better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.
Emiliano Zapata
Let us not waste our time in idle discourse! Let us do something, while we have the chance! It is not every day that we are needed. Not indeed that we personally are needed. Others would meet the case equally well, if not better. To all mankind they were addressed, those cries for help still ringing in our ears! But at this place, at this moment in time, all mankind is us, whether we like it or not. Let us make the most of it, before it is too late! Let us represent worthily, for once, the foul brood to which a cruel fate consigned us! What do you say? (pause) It is true that when with folded arms we weigh the pros and cons we are no less a credit to our species. The tiger bounds to the help of his congeners without the least reflection , or else he slinks away into the depths of the thickets. But that is not the question. What we are doing here, that is the question. And we are blessed in this, that we happen t o know the answer. Yes, in this immense confusion, one thing alone is clear. We are waiting for Godot to come.
Samuell Beckett, Waiting for Godot

Cristoph Lamarte

Malcolm X
If you try, you might fail...if you don't try you are guranteed to fail.
Chris Bannister
After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand & changing a soul. And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning & company doesn't mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts & presents aren't promises. And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up & your eyes ahead... & you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans & futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. So you plant your own garden instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure, that you really are strong & that you really do have worth... and with every goodbye, you learn...
Society has closed all possibilities of a fresh and open mind, if we can control our minds before our brain tells us what it is surely then we are free
Edward McEwan
Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul.
Oscar Wilde
Some people listen to themselves rather then listen to what others say. These people don't come along very often, but when they do, they remind us that once you set off on a path, even though critics may doubt you, it's ok to believe that there is no CAN'T, WON'T or IMPOSSIBLE. They remind us that it's ok to believe that IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING.
