What a piece of work is man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god!
William Shakespeare, spoken by Hamlet, Hamlet,(Act II, scene ii)

Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.
Bertrand Russell, Autobiography

There's only us, there's only this.
Forget regret or life is yours to miss....
There's only now, there's only here.
Give in to love or live in fear.
No other path, no other way, no day but today.
RENT, Jonathan Larson

Doing easily what others find difficult is talent; doing what is impossible for talent is genius.
Henri-Frederic Amiel

"Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge, so that we use it to destroy ourselves?"
"Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance. It is better to know even if the knowledge endures only for the moment that comes before destruction than to gain eternal life at the price of a dull and swinish lack of comprehension of a universe that swirls unseen before us in all its wonder. That was the choice of Achilles, and it is mine, too."
Isaac Asimov, The New Hugo Winners


Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.
Martin Luther King Jr.
