F. Sionil José
“Shit!" I shouted at him. "Now listen, my friend. The youth have no role. They have no jobs. They have no money. They are not in power and they do not make decisions. If there is going to be a war, they will be dumped into the army. And they will be killed like young men everywhere have been killed - whether or not they believe in the war. Having no role is their role.”
F. Sionil José

Cecil Baldwin
“The self that is self we imagined we were our whole lives. But we were never that self, not really. We were only a series of selves, living one role and then leaving it for another. And all the time convincing ourselves that there was no change. That we were always the same person, living the same life. One arc to a finish, not the stutter-stop improvisation that is our actual lives.”
Cecil Baldwin

Steven Kotler
“When free from the confines of our normal identity, we are able to look at life, and the often repetitive stories we tell about it, with fresh eyes. Come Monday morning, we may still clamber back into the monkey suits of our everyday roles—parent, spouse, employee, boss, neighbor—but, by then, we know they're just costumes with zippers.”
Steven Kotler, Stealing Fire: How Silicon Valley, the Navy SEALs, and Maverick Scientists Are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work

Eudora Welty
“It was not my intention - it never was - to invent a character who should speak for me, the author, in person. A character is in a story to fill a role there, and the character's life along with its expression of life is defined by that surrounding - indeed is created by its own story. Yet, it seems to me now, years after I wrote The Golden Apples, that I did bring forth a character with whom I came to feel oddly in touch. She derived from what I already knew for myself, even felt I had always known. What I have put into her is my passion for my own life work, my own art. Exposing yourself to risk is a truth that Mrs. Eckhart and I had in common. What animates and possesses me is what drives Mrs. Eckhart, the love of her art and the love of giving it, the desire to give it until there is no more left. Of course any writer is in part all of his characters. How otherwise would they be known to him, occur to him, become what they are? In the making of her character out of my most inward and most deeply felt self, I would say I have found my voice in my own fiction.”
Eudora Welty, On Writing

“Most people play someone else's role or wear mask of other people because they don't think about what they are created for”
Sunday Adelaja

“Deepen your knowledge about your role in the society”
Sunday Adelaja

Deyth Banger

“A man limits his abilities himself according to his created interest, and then he pays very little attention to unliked things. Understand that man can become whatever he wants to be, just “Interest and Want“ play the role.”

Deyth Banger
“To be poetic is how u get somebody as a girl around you...

"Dexter: You seem uncertain. It's uncomfortable, isn't it? Just when you think you've answered all the questions, another one smacks you in the face. Life, life, life. Life is just like that. Which is why I prefer death."

But in the end some people play well their role others can't play it.”
Deyth Banger

“Apparently we live our lives as a tale which is told. There are times I wish I could tell the tale of my life to others and times I believe it should stay untold, buried with their secrets….and mine. Yet I do not regret my role in what was to come. My early years were very uninteresting but yet they ultimately paved the way for the path that I took.”
