Bertrand Russell
“The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”
Bertrand Russell

Marilyn Monroe
“I believe that everything happens for a reason.

Marilyn Monroe

Toni Morrison
“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
