Ralph Waldo Emerson

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a little bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.


Billy Crystal as Harry Burns, When Harry Met Sally

I love that you are the last person that I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night.

Emily Dickenson

To lose thee- sweeter than to gain
All other hearts I knew
Tis true- the drought is destitute-
But then, I had the dew!

Fred Rogers

Love isn't a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.


Joey Lauren Adams as Alyssa Jones, Chasing Amy

I came to this on my terms, you know? I didn't just heed what I was taught. Men and women should be together, it's the natural way- that kind of thing. I'm not with you because of what family, society, life tried to instill in me from day one. The way the world is- how seldom it is that you meet that one person who just gets you… it’s so rare. My parents didn't really have it. There were no examples set for me in the world of male/female relationships. And to cut oneself off from finding that person- to immediately half your options by eliminating the possibility of finding that one person within your own gender… that just seemed stupid to me. So I didn't. But then you come along. You- the one least likely; I mean, you were a guy. And while I was falling for you, I put a ceiling on that, because you were a guy. Until I remembered why I opened the door to women in the first place- to not limit the likelihood of finding that one person who'd compliment me so completely. And so here we are. I was thorough when I looked for you, and I feel justified lying in your arms- because I got here on my terms, and I have no question that there was someplace I didn't look. And for me, that makes all the difference.


Morgan Freeman as Red, The Shawshank Redemption

I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don’t want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I’d like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can’t be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.



I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

Thomas Edison

To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.
