“Since we live in a world of appearances, people are judged by what they seem to be. If the mind can't read the predictable features, it reacts with alarm or aversion.

( "Ugly mug offense" )”

Steve Goodier

Every new client or project represents the possibility of meeting new people and having new adventures.”
Andrea Michaels

Winston Groom
“I think that sitting there talking to Dan was a thing that had a great impression on my life. I know that being an idiot and all, I ain't supposed to have no philosophy of my own, but maybe it's just because nobody never too the time to talk to me about it. It was Dan's philosophy that everything that happen to us, or for that matter, to anything everywhere, is controlled by natural laws that govern the universe. His views were extremely complicated, but the gist of what he said begun to change my whole outlook on things.”
Winston Groom, Forrest Gump

Richelle E. Goodrich
