"Grade and certificates are worthless. Skills and tutelage(good tutelage) are priceless." J.E.Cole

"Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting “Holy shit, what a ride!” Mavis Leyrer


"If you are an artist, you have to prove it." Laurence Olivier

"Formerly we used to canonize our heroes. The modern method is to vulgarize them. Cheap editions of great books may be delightful, but cheap editions of great men are absolutely detestable." - Oscar Wilde, The Critic as Artist.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." -Robert A. Heinlein

"The desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise." Tacitus

"There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure." Paulo Coelho-The Alchemist

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first."-Mark Twain

"Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great." Mark Twain

"The first and best victory is to conquer self; to be conquered by self is of all things most shameful and vile" Plato

"The reasonable man adapts himself to his surroundings. The unreasonable man adapts his surroundings to himself. Progress depends upon the unreasonable man." Sir George Bernard Shaw

"That women exist, is more than proof enough of G-d's existence" J.E. Cole

"The strongest of all warriors are these two - Time and Patience." Leo Tolstoy

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back-- Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
