    Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.
    -Victor Borge

    -Ira Glass

    Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
    -T. R.

    Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of our language

    The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.

    There is more than a verbal tie between the words common, community, and communication.... Try the experiment of communicating, with fullness and accuracy, some experience to another, especially if it be somewhat complicated, and you will find your own attitude toward your experience changing.
    -John Dewey

    ha! now how does that feel?

    -American Beauty

    chivalry is not dead, its face is in the dirt, its blood is leaving, it grows cold, but it is not dead

    -Chris Rene

    The release of atomic energy has not created a new problem. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one.
    - A.E.

    To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.
    -Arundhati Roy

    Never ruin an apology with an excuse.
    - Kimberly Johnson

    I've worked in an economy that rewards someone who saves the lives of others on a battlefield with a medal, rewards a great teacher with thank-you notes from parents, but rewards those who can detect the mispricing of securities with sums reaching into the billions. In short, fate's distribution of long straws is wildly capricious.
    -Warren Buffet

    You're always going to need someone to hold back the shark while you fight the bear.
    -Thank you Kim Meyer

    At each moment, each blink, and in the time between breaths, you have a fresh mind that you have never had before. This new mind may model after the mind of moments past, taking the memory of the last moment into the experience of this on e. In this way a joy may last forever rotting through its sweetness, or a terror may fester, an abomination living longer than it was ever intended. Take each moment to experience the next and each experience, each fear, joy, triumph or sorry will last no longer in your mind than in the world around you... And that feels very good.

    Wouldn't he remember his first home, what passed for wisdom there, and his fellow prisoners, and consider himself happy and them pitiable?...
    -The Republic

    To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

    If you build it, they will come.

    You can fondle the cube, but it wont respond.
    - W. Buffet

    This song makes me wish I had something to be sad about.
    -Dave Sperandio

    There is always an easy solution to every human problem -- neat, plausible, and wrong.
    - H. L. Mencken
