Santiago Ramón y Cajal
“Heroes and scholars represent the opposite extremes... The scholar struggles for the benefit of all humanity, sometimes to reduce physical effort, sometimes to reduce pain, and sometimes to postpone death, or at least render it more bearable. In contrast, the patriot sacrifices a rather substantial part of humanity for the sake of his own prestige. His statue is always erected on a pedestal of ruins and corpses... In contrast, all humanity crowns a scholar, love forms the pedestal of his statues, and his triumphs defy the desecration of time and the judgment of history.”
Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Advice for a Young Investigator

C. JoyBell C.
“Today, young girls measure the quality of their beauty based upon its entertainment value. The more people are entertained by their beauty, the more beautiful they think they must be.

C. JoyBell C.

“A pineapple is a compilation of berries that grow and fuse together. When joined, they create a single fruit. And within each eyelet, contains a location where a flower may grow. I see the Creator of all existence as the crown on a pineapple, and all religions of the world as the spiky eyelets, where each eyelet symbolizes a different religion or race under the same crown. Each garden of faith may have different perspectives of God, yet every garden belongs to the same God.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Mervyn Peake
“Take him away. Prepare a feast. Forget nothing. My crown: the golden cutlery. The poison bottles; and the fumes; the wreaths of ivy and the bloody joints; the chains; the bowl of nettles; the spices; the baskets of fresh grass; the skulls and spines; the ribs and shoulder-blades. Forget nothing or, by the blindness of my sockets, I will have your hearts out. Take him away...”
Mervyn Peake, Boy in Darkness and Other Stories

“Do not wear spiritualism as a crown to inflate your EGO....be mindful”
Anupama Garg

“Let you remind yourself once again that you must always choose to travel light throughout your life by just keeping only what you need in heart, mind & soul. Let you learn to clean your mess immediately if you have created it without blaming anyone & get up off the floor when you are done. You don't need to remain down there always. Let you remind yourself that you are awesome, beautiful, powerful, resourceful, intelligent, wise, competent & that you are enough in every sense worthy of your own admiration. It is obviously good if you are not someone who consistently & without compromise look down on others with contempt using a wry smile or grin oozing superiority but that doesn't mean you can't walk around as if you had an invisible crown on. Let you always straighten your crown before leaving your home & treat everyone in your world as if they too have a crown of their own. Let your distinction, abundance & splendor grow rapidly with each passing day. Stay as Sweet & Gratifying as you can be!”
Rajesh Goyal

Israelmore Ayivor
“Those who lift trophies of success are those who do what they do without stretching their necks to see “who else is doing what?”

“In my experience, television is connected to a huge energy field. It is a telecommunication medium for transmitting and receiving moving images with or without accompanying sound. The energy from a television screen transmits and receives negative images, stories and news that speak FEAR to those watching. FEAR: False Evidence Appearing Real. Your Evidence Appearing Real. Your E Salons should be a RELAXED atmosphere for your clients to be able to come and make them look and feel good; the television is a contradictory source of energy to your client’s experience.”
Nicole Lee, Healing Cosmetologist
