“Most of the time I’m not angry when someone hits Reply All to an email. I’m more so curious as to how they got their shirt on over their giant head.”
Ben Nesvig, First World Problems: 101 Reasons Why The Terrorists Hate Us

“Over the past few months, I have become so dependent upon tracking my pizza online through Domino's Pizza Tracker, that I now understand the need overbearing parents feel to strap a GPS-enabled phone to their child. I am anxious about the whereabouts, well-being and safety of my pizza and must know exactly where it is at all times.”
Ben Nesvig, First World Problems: 101 Reasons Why The Terrorists Hate Us

“butter is the nicotine of food. Put it on anything and people will beat down your door to get it. It’s the only reason people in America eat bread.”

Ben Nesvig, First World Problems: 101 Reasons Why The Terrorists Hate Us

“And once you live a good story, you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life, and you can't go back to being normal; you can't go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time.”
Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life

“Every creative person, and I think probably every other person, faces resistance when they are trying to create something good...The harder the resistance, the more important the task must be.”
Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life

“The human body essentially recreates iteself every six months. Nearly every cell of hair and skin and bone dies and another is directed to its former place. You are not who you were in February.”
Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life

“There are many who find a good alibi far more attractive than an achievement. For an achievement does not settle anything permanently. We still have to prove our worth anew each day; we have to prove that we are as good today as we were yesterday. But when we have a valid alibi for not achieving anything we are fixed, so to speak, for life.”
Eric Hoffer, The Passionate State of Mind: And Other Aphorisms
