Back2QUOTES that keep me going over so many years:

  • “It isn’t our most courageous or most cowardly acts that matter most. It’s what comes after those moments. It’s what we do next that defines us.” – by a Very Famous Person but no idea by whom…
  • “People willing to sacrifice a little liberty for a little security, deserve neither the one nor the other, and end up losing both.” – Benjamin Franklin
  • “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” – Anatole France
  • “Life is a promise; fulfill it.” – Mother Theresa
  • “Experience is much more transforming then belief.” – Buddhist saint Asanga
  • “Everybody is different. I do not believe in statistics.” – Anonymous
  • “A rabbit cannot tell the tale of an elephant.” – Agnieszka Osiecka

And a very short list from my beloved author of “Calvin and Hobbs” Bill Watterson:

Not so serious:

  • I liked things better when I didn’t understand them.
  • I know the world isn’t fair, but why isn’t it ever unfair in my favor?
  • Reality continues to ruin my life.
  • It seems like once people grow up, they have no idea what’s cool.
  • Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.
  • Why waste time learning, when ignorance is instantaneous?

Quite serious    

  • From now on, I’ll connect the dots my own way.
  • If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.
  • It’s always better to leave the party early.
  • It’s not denial. I’m just selective about the reality I accept.
  • Letting your mind play is the best way to solve problems.
  • Mothers are the necessity of invention.
