James C. Dobson
“19. Those who are the happiest are not necessarily those for whom life has been easiest. Emotional stability results from an attitude. It is refusing to yield to depression and fear, even when black clouds float overhead. It is improving that which can be improved and accepting that which is inevitable.”
James C. Dobson, Life on the Edge: The Next Generation's Guide to a Meaningful Future

Ryan Lilly

Michael Finkel
“His chief form of entertainment was reading. The last moments he was in a cabin were usually spent scanning bookshelves and nightstands. The life inside a book always felt welcoming to Knight. It pressed no demands on him, while the world of actual human interactions was so complex. Conversations between people can move like tennis games, swift and unpredictable. There are constant subtle visual and verbal cues, there's innuendo, sarcasm, body language, tone. Everyone occasionally fumbles an encounter, a victim of social clumsiness. It's part of being human.
To Knight, it all felt impossible. His engagement with the written word might have been the closest he could come to genuine human encounters. The stretch of days between thieving raids allowed him to tumble into the pages, and if he felt transported he could float in bookworld, undisturbed, for as long as he pleased.”
Michael Finkel, The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit

Dean Koontz
“...hope and trust will more reliably keep a man afloat, while fear is more like to sink him.”

Israelmore Ayivor
“If your name is "canoe" and you can't float on water, you are useless! If they call you "cutlass" but you can't chop anything into pieces, you are a waste! You have a unique role, you are a brand! Do what you were created to do!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“To grow is not to timidly sit on some safe shore at water’s edge and clumsily grab whatever happens to float by me. Rather, it is to deliberately step into waters both calm and turbulent in order to wrestle great things to shore.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“All the colours in the rainbow don't compare,
With one look in your impossible eyes,
And I walked into the trap with my eyes wide shut,
But I never knew what it would be like.


All the plans were made,
In the wooded glade,
Where your body was split wide open,
And I count to ten,
As the race begins,
Round your hairpin bends.


Sometimes I feel I'll float away,
Sometimes I feel I'll float away,
Sometimes I feel I'll float away,
Without you to hold me.


I can't count the times I forgot my lines,
And you pretended that you didn't know,
Let me take you through each stage of the male
mistake,
And we'll adopt our natural roles.



And I need you more,
Than you need to be needed,
So I sign my will one stab at a time,
And I count to ten,
As the race begins,
Round your hairpin bends.



Sometimes I feel I'll float away,
Sometimes I feel I'll float away,
Sometimes I feel I'll float away,
Without you to hold me.



Sometimes I feel I'll float away,
Sometimes I feel I'll float away,
Sometimes I feel I'll float away,
Without you to hold me.


Away, away, away, away ".”
Suede, The Suede -- The Chord Songbook: Lyric Songbook, Octavo-Size Book

Will Advise
“I flow like a butter in the nailed pan I stole. I also kept the nail, to polish and use as a means of teleportation.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Virgil Kalyana Mittata Iordache
“When two souls stand on ice, it is easy to say which one is leading the movement and which one is following. The art of ice skating is that one is bound to fall, but nevertheless learn a lot more in the process, learn to rely on the other for balance until they can stand on their feet and skate as if touching the frozen past with a grace that doesn't allow it to affect them at all, for they no longer fall into the depths of it, but have already learned to float on its' surface.”
Virgil Kalyana Mittata Iordache

Leonardo da Vinci
“The air moves like a river and carries the clouds with it; just as running water carries all the things that float upon it.”
Leonardo da Vinci

“Sometimes, life lets you float amongst the clouds rather than sail upon the waters.”
Anthony T. Hincks
