Neil Gaiman
“If you dare nothing, then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained.”
Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

“To be fully free to create, we must first find the courage and willingness to let go:
Let go of the strategies that have worked for us in the past...
Let go of our biases, the foundation of our illusions...
Let go of our grievances, the root source of our victimhood...
Let go of our so-often-denied fear of being found unlovable.”
Gordon MacKenzie, Orbiting the Giant Hairball: A Corporate Fool's Guide to Surviving with Grace

“Children are deeply curious about odd behaviors and seldom offended or worried by them. What a remarkable gift to bestow on another person, it occurs to me, and so difficult for adults to accomplish.”
Vivian Gussin Paley, The Kindness of Children

Wanda Sykes
“I think the worst one [indian mascot] is the Cleveland Indians' Big Chief Wahoo. It's just a red face on a baseball with a big, toothy grin. It's the Sambo of all other offensive mascots. I have never seen a Native American smile that hard before, not even at a casino opening.”
Wanda Sykes

Christiane Northrup
“If we lived in a culture that valued women's autonomy and in which men and women practiced cooperative birth control, the abortion issue would be moot.”
Christiane Northrup, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom: Creating Physical and Emotional Health and Healing
