“How is it that some celebrities, whom the average person would believe to have all the popularity a human being could want, still admit to feeling lonely?

Shannon L. Alder
“Naive people tend to generalize people as—-good, bad, kind, or evil based on their actions. However, even the smartest person in the world is not the wisest or the most spiritual, in all matters. We are all flawed. Maybe, you didn’t know a few of these things about Einstein, but it puts the notion of perfection to rest. Perfection doesn’t exist in anyone. Nor, does a person’s mistakes make them less valuable to the world.

Shannon L. Alder

Nguyễn Nhật Ánh
“Bọn cún chúng tôi căn bản là thân thiện với loài người. Loài người yêu thương chúng tôi và chúng tôi đáp lại bằng một tình cảm còn sâu sắc hơn. Tình cảm đó không cần phải học. Nó như một thứ bản năng có sẵn trong máu. Thậm chí, tình yêu và lòng tin vô điều kiện đó có thể được coi như một phẩm giá.
Nhưng không phải những gì thuộc về loài người đều tốt. Lão Hiếng thuộc về loài người. Nhưng lão không tốt.
Vì thế chúng tôi phải trả giá cho sự tin cậy của mình. Khi bạn quá tin cậy hoặc sùng bái một ai, chắc chắn bạn không bao giờ đề phòng, thậm chí nghi ngờ. Và đôi khi bạn chết vì niềm tin ngây thơ của mình.”
Nguyễn Nhật Ánh, Tôi Là Bêtô

Anton Chekhov
“Ivanov: A naive man is a fool. But you women are clever enough to be naive so that it comes out in you as engaging and healthy and warm, and not so silly as it might seem. Only why do you all behave like this? While a man is healthy and strong and in good spirits, you pay him no attention, but as soon as he rolls down the slippery slope and starts complaining about his woes, you hang on his neck.”
Anton Chekhov, Ivanov

Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“Many women do not even have the basic teaching about predators that a wolf mother gives her pups, such as: if it's threatening and bigger than you, flee; if it's weaker, see what you want to do; if it's sick, leave it alone; if it has quills, poison, fangs, or razor claws, back up and go in the other direction; it it smells nice but is wrapped around metal jaws, walk on by.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype

Toba Beta

“Ignorance might be bliss, but it also has teeth.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough, Flecks of Gold on a Path of Stone: Simple Truths for Profound Living

H. Raven Rose
“You are so sweet. This is unbelievable. Some schmo talks to you every two weeks, buys you a meal, during which he talks about himself, dry-humps you, touches your hand once and you think he smells like roses. Maybe he is a white knight on a steed, who will carry you off into the future, so you can live happily ever after and, finally, maybe get it on.”
H. Raven Rose, Caffè Latte

Jennifer McGaha
“When I was growing up, my parents had created for my brother and me the perfect upper middle-class lifestyle. We had everything we needed, and most things we wanted. We took piano lessons. We went to summer camp. We swam at the local country club. We had college funds. And while what I should have learned from living a relatively privileged childhood was the value of hard work and frugality, what I learned instead was that money was not something with which I needed to be overly concerned. If and when I needed it, it would magically appear. Like a genie.”
Jennifer McGaha, Flat Broke with Two Goats: A Memoir of Appalachia

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Most often, what I don’t know will have a vastly greater bearing on my life that what I do know.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Karl May
“Ein Greenhorn schleppt der Reinlichkeit wegen einen Waschschwamm von der Größe eines Riesenkürbis und zehn Pfund Seife mit in die Prärie und steckt sich dazu einen Kompass bei, der schon am dritten oder vierten Tag nach allen möglichen Richtungen, aber nie mehr nach Norden zeigt. Ein Greenhorn schreibt sich achthundert Indianerausdrücke auf, und wenn er dem ersten Roten begegnet, merkt er, dass er diese Aufzeichnungen im letzten Briefumschlag mit nach Hause geschickt und dafür den Brief dabehalten hat. Ein Greenhorn kauft Schießpulver, und wenn er den ersten Schuss tun will, erkennt er, dass man ihm gemahlene Holzkohle gegeben hat. Ein Greenhorn hat fünf Jahre lang Astronomie studiert, kann aber ebenso lange den gestirnten Himmel anstarren, ohne zu wissen, wie viel Uhr es ist. Ein Greenhorn steckt das Bowiemesser so in den Gürtel, dass er sich beim Bücken die Klinge in den Schenkel sticht...”
Karl May, Winnetou: Band 1

“Democracy only exists in the minds of the naïve and innocent.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Often times leaders can become so content with delegating others to find solutions to the problems that they are oblivious to the fact that they're part of it.”
VaeEshia Ratcliff Davis

Zøe Haslie
“I guess she thought if I stayed with her or if I got in touch with her while I was here, I would end up fucked up. But I'm already fucked up and she is too naïve to think she can change that.”
Zøe Haslie, Just For A While

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Being lost without knowing that we’re lost means that we have no idea that we need to be found. And if you have a hard time believing that that’s just about as lost as you can get, watch the news.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough
