"The epigraph makes me want to read every note to catch subtle lies. Einstein never wrote "Life is like riding a bicycle." He said "It is the same with people as it is with riding a bike." These two sentences have very different meanings, one portrays Einstein as a man of action, the other as an introvert." Mar 03, 2013 07:34AM

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I have never been out of my own land before. And if I had known what the world outside was like, I don't think I should have had the heart to leave it.'
'Not even to see fair Lothlorien?' said Haldir. 'The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Ayn Rand
“Do it first and feel about it afterwards.' - Dagny Taggart”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

Martin Luther King Jr.
“We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to mankind.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

“Life is not easy. But that's not the only truth that matters in this context. It also happens to be true that it takes just as much effort to have a "bad life," in which you don't get what you want, as it does to have a "good life," where you do. So given the choice, why not go for the good life?”
David Bach
