Matt Jones
The man or woman with sight see things as they are. The man or woman with insight see things as they could be.
Joseph P Martino
To master the arts one must travel to heaven and hell.
Allen Blanks
Logic and reason, I have to keep explaining, are wonderful virtues, but they are irrelevant in describing human behavior
Don Norman
While our bodies move ever forward on the time-line, our minds continuously trace backward, seeking shape and meaning as deftly as an arrow seeking its mark.
'Autobiography of a Face' Lucy Grealy
Everything we do is a choice: oatmeal or cereal, highway or side street, kiss her or keep her. We make choices and we live with the consequences. If someone gets hurt along the way we ask for forgiveness. It's the best anyone can do.
'Pushing Daisies'
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
Chief Tecumseh Shawnee Nation 1768-1813
As an adult I have often known that peculiar legacy time brings to the traveler: the longing to seek out a place a second time, to find deliberately what we stumbled on once before, to recapture the feeling of discovery. Sometimes we search out again even a place that was not remarkable itself - we look for it simply because we remember it. If we do find it, of course, everything is different. The rough-hewn door is still there, but it's much smaller; the day is cloudy instead of brilliant; it's spring instead of autumn; we're alone instead of with three friends. Or worse, with three friends instead of alone.
'The Historian' by Elizabeth Kostova
Biology gives you a brain, life turns it into a mind.
'Middlesex' by Jeffrey Eugenides
The children the world almost break become the adults who save it.
Frank Warren
One had tried: one had traveled 22,000 miles, one had stewed and seamed, one had fought the words against the clock. But one was only a reporter, not a historian; one had suffered while from the occupational delusion of importance. At home nobody gave a damn.
James Cameron, reporting of the Atom Bomb tests in Bikini Atoll in 1947
It's a wider principle of do you report from the side of the powerful or do you report from the side of the people?

From conservatism to nihilism, fascism to anarchism, communism to democraticism and almost every religion. No matter what you follow, it always leads to death, defilement of mental stability, defilement of the ones who are unable to do certain things, war and/or uncleanliness.
Thorald Williams
Everyone has a voice deep down inside them; a voice that says "shine". Some have loud voices some have quiet ones. Some people's voice is so quiet they never get to hear it. Some of the people that get to hear it choose not to listen. Unfortunately, only a few decide to act on this voice, the stars; the lifters who influence others to listen themselves.
Aaron Betesta
Movie style stories can happen. Unfortunately, most think that they can't and, because of this mentality, they never open themselves up for it to happen. They go through life playing situations down; playing small. Believe these things can happen and inevitably they will. Dance in the rain, make the first step; open up.
Aaron Betesta
Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age.
The way I see it, when you're faced with extreme adversity in life, you have two options. You can either quit, or you can put everything you have into steamrolling that adversity. Personally, I will always choose the latter.
Daniel Tidwell
Love is being stronger than fear. If fear stands in the way of something you claim to love, then it isn't love.
Daniel Tidwell
