“When I pronounce the word Future,

Bill Bryson
“Because we humans are big and clever enough to produce and utilize antibiotics and disinfectants, it is easy to convince ourselves that we have banished bacteria to the fringes of existence. Don't you believe it. Bacteria may not build cities or have interesting social lives, but they will be here when the Sun explodes. This is their planet, and we are on it only because they allow us to be.”
Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything

Roald Dahl
“Watch with glittery eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”
Roald Dahl

“If there was an exit interview on the hour of our death I would like to be asked the question, "Was it worth it?" To which my response would be, "Yes, emphatically yes...but just barely.”
Michael Morris

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.”
Conan O'Brien
