A few miscellaneous quotes

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” ― Albert Einstein

“We are all failures—at least the best of us are.” — J.M. Barrie

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.”
― Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” ― Marilyn Monroe

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ― Rob Siltanen

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” ― Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” ― Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

“Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.” ― Garrison Keillor

“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” ― Anaïs Nin

“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world…but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.” ― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”
― William Shakespeare, The Tempest

“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn”
― Orson Welles

“It might be possible that the world itself is without meaning.”
― Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway

“Don’t for heaven’s sake, be afraid of talking nonsense! But you must pay attention to your nonsense.”
― Ludwig Wittgenstein

“Everyone has talent. What’s rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads.” – Erica Jong

“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.” – Carl Jung

“If we are the same person before and after we loved, that means we haven’t loved enough.” – Elif Safek

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” – M. Scott Peck

“I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.” – Audrey Hepburn

“I still love the people I’ve loved, even if I cross the street to avoid them.” – Uma Thurman

“Accomplishments don’t erase shame, hatred, cruelty, silence, ignorance, discrimination, low self-esteem or immorality. They cover it up, with a creative version of pride and ego. Only restitution, forgiving yourself and others, compassion, repentance and living with dignity will ever erase the past.”  ― Shannon L. Alder

“The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful then a thousand heads bowing in prayer.”  ― Mahatma Gandhi
