Henry David Thoreau
“I say, beware of all enterprises that require new clothes, and not rather a new wearer of clothes.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden : An Annotated Edition

Jon   Stewart
“If you don't stick to your values when they're being tested, they're not values: they're hobbies.”
Jon Stewart

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Before I go on with this short history, let me make a general observation– the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.
One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise. This philosophy fitted on to my early adult life, when I saw the improbable, the implausible, often the "impossible," come true.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Crack-Up

“Go the extra mile. It's never crowded.”

Joseph Campbell
“If the path before you is clear, you're probably on someone else's.”
Joseph Campbell
