Dave Barry

Shannon L. Alder
“You can change the place you live, your clothes, your interests, your friends, your religion and even your partner. However, if you forgot to change your mind, attitude, beliefs about the world, how you treat people and how you plan to be different this time around, why did you even bother?”
Shannon L. Alder

Wayne W. Dyer
“As You Think, So Shall You Be.”
Wayne W. Dyer, No Excuses!

“. . . crazy world or maybe it's just the view we have of it, looking through a crack in the door, never being able to see the whole room, the whole picture.”
Judith Guest, Ordinary People

“A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world: everyone you meet is your mirror.”
Ken Keyes Jr.

“Your mind can be your enemy or friend. If you always follow your heart, your mind will feel neglected. If you follow only your mind, your heart will never forgive you. Never ignore your conscience, yet always be conscious of reason. Make your heart and mind friends and you will have peace of mind throughout life's seasons.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem


It is a person's unquenchable thirst for wonder
That sets them on their initial quest for truth.
The more doors you open, the smaller you become.
The more places you see and the more people you meet,
The greater your curiosity grows.
The greater your curiosity, the more you will wander.
The more you wander, the greater the wonder.
The more you quench your thirst for wonder,
The more you drink from the cup of life.
The more you see and experience, the closer to truth you become.
The more languages you learn, the more truths you can unravel.
And the more countries you travel, the greater your understanding.
And the greater your understanding, the less you see differences.
And the more knowledge you gain, the wider your perspective,
And the wider your perspective, the lesser your ignorance.
Hence, the more wisdom you gain, the smaller you feel.
And the smaller you feel, the greater you become.
The more you see, the more you love --
The more you love, the less walls you see.
The more doors you are willing to open,
The less close-minded you will be.
The more open-minded you are,
The more open your heart.
And the more open your heart,
The more you will be able to
Send and receive --
Truth and TRUE
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Steve Goodier
“Every problem has a gift for you in its hands” (Richard Bach). And if not every problem, then just about every one. Even spectacular sunsets are not possible without cloudy skies. Troubles bring a gift for those who choose to look. And since I can't avoid my problems, why waste them? I should look for the gift. My life will be far, far richer for finding it.”
Steve Goodier

Andrea Michaels
“...I try to incorporate life's lessons from everyone around me and pay it forward anytime I can. I look at every person I meet as a new and thrilling experience with which I'm gifted. Every new city or country or continent that I visit is a beautiful exploration from which I can learn. Every new client or project represents the possibility of meeting new people and having new adventures.”
Andrea Michaels

Honoré de Balzac
“Misfortune is a stepping stone for genius, the baptismal font of Christians, treasure for the skillful man, an abyss for the feeble.”
Honoré de Balzac

“Any day above ground is a good day. Before you complain about anything, be thankful for your life and the things that are still going well.”
Germany Kent

Anthony Kiedis
“Having gone through it all had changed our outlooks. You can't be as much of a bitch as you were before, you can't be as much as an egomaniac, you can't feel as much like the world owed you something, you can't be the 'where's mine?' guy.”
Anthony Kiedis, Scar Tissue

“Things are always terrible
for some people. The question
is the ratio of the palpable hurt
to the general session

of life in an era.”
Maureen N. McLane

László Krasznahorkai
“We have reached the end of one era, and now we don't know what is all around us. Because we're already in a new era, and it is very different from the old one. Science and the world of technology are both changing everything so quickly, even our bodies. So the original ancient culture was present here, but to no avail, at this point in history it has come to stop. It still has some effect, some kind of continuity, but it cannot analyse and reformulate things, it cannot impact things with absolute strength. The age to follow will be full of dangers. It will be full of difficulties. In all likelihood, it will not be a good future for mankind. It is even possible this new era will mean the end of mankind.”
László Krasznahorkai, Destruction and Sorrow beneath the Heavens: Reportage

Carrie Fisher
“You can set up housekeeping on one side of the looking glass or the other--the side that makes big things small or small things big.”
Carrie Fisher, The Princess Diarist

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Life can seem like a gloomy wait in the thick of black shadows.
And still there are those who smile at the darkness, anticipating the beauty of an eventual sunrise.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Slaying Dragons

“The resolute look on life closes plenty of doors.”
Andy Harglesis

“Carried to its final extreme, the logical end of this type of reaction to life is suicide. The hard-bitten kind of person is always, as it were, a partial suicide; some of himself is already dead”
Alan Watts

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

Lailah Gifty Akita
“With every circumstance, there is grace for change.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

“Do not discern it differently -- pursue it differently.”
Andy Harglesis

“If the sun isn't shining where you are, be the sunshine where you are.”
Clyde Lee Dennis

“You might say "Life isn't fair!" and you only look at the negative. I say "Life has its ups and downs!" but the difference between me and you is that I look at the positive, too. You should try it sometime, it changes the way you think and live your life!”

“Action is a powerful thing. When you smile through your sadness, it can completely change your outlook. Try it! Smile :) Now hold onto that and keep choosing to smile!”
Leticia Rae

Zadie Smith
“Neither my readers nor I are in the relatively sunlit uplands depicted in White Teeth anymore. But the lesson I take from this is not that the lives in that novel were illusory, but rather that progress is never permanent, will always be threatened, must be redoubled, restated and *reimagined* if it is to survive.”
Zadie Smith, Feel Free: Essays
