Hell is—other people!Jean-Paul Sartre
Ngoc liked a quote
I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there ’s a pair of us—don’t tell!
They ’d banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
Emily Dickinson

Oscar Wilde
“Conscience and cowardice are really the same things, Basil. Conscience is the trade-name of the firm. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Herman Melville
“It is not down on any map; true places never are.”
Herman Melville, Moby-Dick; or, The Whale

Stephen Colbert
“Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying “yes” begins things. Saying “yes” is how things grow. Saying “yes” leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say “yes'.”
Stephen Colbert

William Shakespeare
“So we'll live, And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh at gilded butterflies.”
William Shakespeare

James Joyce
“It soared, a bird, it held its flight, a swift pure cry, soar silver orb it leaped serene, speeding, sustained, to come, don't spin it out too long long breath he breath long life, soaring high, high resplendent, aflame, crowned, high in the effulgence symbolistic, high, of the ethereal bosom, high, of the high vast irradiation everywhere all soaring all around about the all, the endlessnessnessness...”
James Joyce, Ulysses
